Resources for AIDS Awareness Month

December 1 was World AIDS Day. The main library has created an exhibit that highlights materials in the collection related to AIDS and HIV.The Conservatory Library has a variety of materials in the collection related to AIDS and HIV, for example:

With the release of Singing For Life: Songs of Hope, Healing, and HIV/AIDS in Uganda, Ugandans demonstrate how they have triumphantly tapped the power of their traditional music to battle the AIDS pandemic. Recorded by ethnomusicologist Gregory Barz, this unique blend of music and public health has helped make Uganda's record of success against HIV/AIDS one of the best in Africa. In turn, the traditional music of Uganda is revitalized and made contemporary. Singing for Life: Songs of Hope, Healing, and HIV/AIDS in Uganda affirms the profound strength of a people's music in promoting hope and positive change. 66 minutes, extensive notes, 36-page booklet.

Pope to purge the Vatican of modern music

The Pope is considering a dramatic overhaul of the Vatican in order to force a return to traditional sacred music. After reintroducing the Latin Tridentine Mass, the Pope wants to widen the use of Gregorian chant and baroque sacred music.

In an address to the bishops and priests of St Peter's Basilica, he said that there needed to be "continuity with tradition" in their prayers and music. He referred pointedly to "the time of St Gregory the Great", the pope who gave his name to Gregorian chant. more

Movie Review: Note by Note: The Making of Steinway L1037

Note by Note: The Making of Steinway L1037 follows the painstaking yearlong process of building and fine-tuning a handmade nine-foot concert grand piano in the Steinway company’s factory in Astoria, Queens. A paean to the rewards of old-fashioned craftsmanship in an age of mechanization, the film, directed by Ben Niles, amounts to a de facto infomercial for Steinway & Sons, the 150-year-old company that is the biggest name in the high-end piano business. Steinway produces about 2,000 pianos a year, compared with the approximately 100 a day by other companies, none of whose names are mentioned. more

The Well-tempered Web by Alex Ross

In the spring of 2004, I made the questionable decision to start a blog. I reserved a dot-com address, signed up for an Internet-for-dummies service called Typepad, and, to the delight of more than a dozen compulsively Googling insomniacs around the world, began adding dribs and drabs to the graphomaniac ocean of the Web.

Trouble at IMSLP

IMSLP ( is now the largest site of downloadable public domain scores available on the internet, with more than 15,000 scores, 9000 titles and 1000 composers.

IMSLP recently received a threat of litigation on the part of Universal Edition of Vienna Austria, who apparently wishes to enforce EU copyright laws in Canada and the USA. The site will be taken down for the next several days for maintenance and to remove certain titles in order to comply with demands in the Cease and Desist letter from UE's lawyers until volunteer attorneys at the Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic of the University of Ottawa Law School can prepare an adequate response to the legal intimidation tactics employed by UE.

The Roof That Jazz Is Raising By Marci Janas ’91

“A building should broadcast its purpose to the world,” says Paul Westlake, who leads the architectural team designing the Phyllis Litoff Building, a new home for jazz studies at Oberlin.

With that in mind, Oberlin’s charge to his architectural firm, Westlake Reed Leskosky, was ambitious: craft a building to house jazz studies and the Conservatory’s academic programs in music history and music theory, a world-class recording studio, and the largest privately held jazz recording collection in the United States; read more of this article

Black Composer Offers a Few Notes

Jeffrey Mumford usually stumps people when he asks them to name a black composer.They offer a blank look, then ask: Are there any? He rattles off a list: Florence Price. R. Nathaniel Dett. Tania Leon. Olly Wilson. Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges. George Walker.Add one more name to the list: Jeffrey Mumford.

Jeffrey invited me to sit on the porch at his Oberlin home and listen to his concerns about rap music. He's concerned about how it shapes, or misshapes, the identity of too many black people. read more

Pseudonymity in Music

There are numerous examples of musicians using different names for different purposes. For example Fritz Kreisler composed dozens of pieces for violin which he ascribed to various 18th-century composers. In 1935 Kreisler finally admitted the hoax, and today the pieces are part of the standard violin repertoire.

Stradivarius or Zygmuntowicz??

Celebrated Brooklyn violin-maker Sam Zygmuntowicz recently accepted a challenging commission from violinist Eugene Drucker of the Emerson String Quartet: to make a new violin that would equal Drucker's beloved Stradivarius. Their collaboration is documented in The violin maker : finding a centuries-old tradition in a Brooklyn workshop by John Marchese. He follows Zygmuntowicz through the exacting, scrape-by-scrape process of trying to transform a block of wood into an exquisitely wrought vibrating box that somehow captures the inexpressible sonic essence the finicky Drucker longs to hear. Along the way, Marchese goes on a pilgrimage to Stradivarius's hometown of Cremona and delves into the secrets behind the maestro's incomparable sound. Was it the wood? The varnish? The nap-time transmigration of his spirit into the violin under construction? Zygmuntowicz's example, Marchese finds, suggests a more prosaic, if no less marvelous, possibility—that the genius of craftsmanship resides not in magic ingredients or arcane techniques, but simply in taking infinite, exhausting pains with the work, in "caring more and more about less and less." He also broaches a more inflammatory corollary: that modern violins actually sound just as good as Strads. The result is a beguiling journalistic meditation on the links—and tensions—between art, craft and connoisseurship.

Writing on the Wall!

In March 1963, Igor Stravinsky visited Oberlin as part of a contemporary festival. After hearing the students' rendition of his Septet, Stravinsky was so pleased that he took his rehearsal pencil and scribed his excitement on the wall. The plaster "excerpt" was rescued and is now on display as part of the Conservatory Library's Bibliorarities Exhibit series.

Igor Stravinsky’s publisher, impatient to publish his latest composition, urged him to hurry its completion. “Hurry!” exclaimed the enraged composer. “I never hurry. I have no time to hurry.”

Jazz Casual Series

Ralph Gleason's 1960s Jazz Casual series was one of the high points of televised jazz. The San Francisco jazz writer and Rolling Stone magazine paterfamilias presented the best jazz musicians across a range of styles in a respectful, relaxed setting, and spent a few minutes of almost every show conversing intelligently with his guest star. And what fantastic musicians. In this set you can hear and see, at length, John Coltrane and his great quartet; Sonny Rollins and his quartet; the blues singer Jimmy Rushing talking, singing and accompanying himself on piano; Dizzy Gillespie; Count Basie in a very relaxed piano set; the great traditional cornetist Muggsy Spanier with a group including bassist Pops Foster and Chicago pianist Joe Sullivan; an entire set of Joe Sullivan playing solo piano; the Woody Herman Big Band; altoist Art Pepper; blues singer Jimmy Witherspoon with an accompanying group including Ben Webster; and lots more in 8 discs.
