Last 'Classical Journey' this month: 19 March 2013 Special Guest Clive Stevens - and exciting news: English Touring Opera at the Northcott this week

Clive Stevens
Soprano Saxophone - and Alto Flute
with Sam Richards' Improvisers' Orchestra
At Soundart Studio 24 August 2012

Apologies to all listeners who were unable to hear the first part of last week's interview with Roger Woodward - and thanks to those who stayed tuned to hear his very interesting discussion of his career, collaborations and music.

This week we have another exciting international music star in the Phonic FM studio.

Clive Stevens is a saxophonist (and flautist) from Bristol, who began his career with Eddie Jackman and Ronnie Ross here in the UK. He studied music at Berklee College of Music in Boston. (Not a typo! - The University of Califormia, Berkeley, is quite a different thing!)

Clive added flute at the San Francisco Conservatory - (Roger Woodward, by the way, is Professor at the School of Music and Dance {College of Liberal and Creative Arts} at San Francisco State University)

Folowing further flute studies at the Guildhall School of Music and US Naval Academy of Music, Clive studied saxophone with Lee Konitz and composition with William Allaudin Mathieu (Director of the Sufi Choir at the San Francisco Conservatory).

Clive has released eight studio albums with Capitol Records, and a book of poems called 'Stardust Transmissions'.

On Friday 24 August, Clive performed with Sam Richard's Improviser's Orchestra at St Mary's Church in Totnes - and later for a live broadcast from the Soundart studios at Dartington Hall. Contrary to reports at the time, photos from St Mary's are not permanently lost, and will appear soon. (However, Clive is not included in that set!)

Clive also played saxophone and flute with 'The Chill Acoustic' (featuring David Sawyer's Sanzakord, Russell Frampton's guitar and the vocal accompaniment of Tony Dale) - at the launch of an art exhibition in memory of Daphne Cartwright on Friday 7 September 2012.

Clive and the Chill Acoustic will be in action again at 'Gloss' art gallery in Barnfield Crescent this Thursday, 21 March, for the launch of 'Exeter Open Studios 2013' which will continue all weekend and feature the art of David Sawyer and his wife Christine Sawyer - not to mention a dozen more artists in Exeter and Topsham.

Microphone - ON!
Clive plays 'Scarborough Fair'


ENGLISH TOURING OPERA

Tues and Weds 19 & 20 March
(Photo: Robert Workman)

We MUST find time during the programme to mention this week's visit by the English Touring Opera. 'Cosi fan Tutte' (see above) is already SOLD OUT. Tickets are still available, however, for the other two Italian operas. 'Simon Boccanegra' by Giuseppe Verdi is being performed on Thursday and Saturday, while Gaetano Donizetti's 'Siege of Calais' will be showing on Friday evening.

The venue - EXETER NORTHCOTT THEATRE.

Full details on this website.

Tuesday/Wednesday: Paul Higgins directs Mozart's 'Cosi fan Tutte' ('All women are the same'), where two men pretend to leave for war, only to return and attempt to seduce each other's lover - to test their fidelity. Watch out for Richard Mosley Evans (who was such an incredible Gianni Schicchi back in March 2011) as the scheming Don Alfonzo.

Thursday/Saturday: ETO Directors, Michael Rosewell and James Conway, have brought together a huge orchestra and choir for Giuseppe Verdi's 'Simon Boccanegra' - the story of a pirate who returns to Genoa to become its leader, and to attempt to unite Italy. Craig Smith is Simon Boccanegra.

Friday: Between the two performances of 'Boccanegra' there is a single performance of Gaetano Donizetti's 'Siege of Calais'. Cozmin Sime is Edward III at the gates of Calais, demanding surrender, while the citizens within negotiate their survival - or self-sacrifice. Eddie Wade is the Mayor of Calais, while Helen Sherman plays his son Aurelio (originally a castrato rôle - one of the last), and Paula Sides (Bubikopf, 'Emperor of Atlantis', November 2012 - and Emilia in 'Flavio'/Atalanta in 'Xerxes' in November 2011) is Aurelio's wife, Eleonora.

Classical Journey Tuesday 12 March 2013, 10-12am Live interview with concert pianist Roger Woodward who is playing at Bradninch on Thursday evening and news of other concerts this week

Roger Woodward OBE

This morning the Phonic FM studio will be visited by an international musical star - Australian pianist Roger Woodward.

Roger will be talking about his musical career, and the recital he will be performing at Bradninch this Thursday.

Roger studied music for his first degree at Sydney University and the New South Wales Conservatorium of Music, where he studied with Latvian mentor Alexander Sverjensky (who was himself a student of Alexander Glazunov).

When Roger was 22 he entered the Australian Broadcasting Commission's 'Concerto and Vocal Competition', which he won outright. His fellow finalist was David Helfgott.


Zbigniew Drzewiecki
The following year Roger began post-graduate studies in music with Zbigniew Drzewiecki in Poland, and made his concert debut, at the age of 23, with the Warsaw National Philharmonic Orchestra. By the age of 34, he was a Fellow of the Warsaw Chopin Institute. He never forgot the kindness he enjoyed as a stranger in communist Poland.

Roger also worked with many prominent musicians and orchestras around the world. He worked with the greatest contemporary composers - including John Cage, Morton Feldman and Karlheinz Stockhausen.


Lech Wałęsa
When Lech Wałęsa united the Gdansk shipyard workers in the Solidarność trade union in 1980, Roger (who received the OBE in the same year) toured the world playing the complete works of Chopin from memory - to raise money to help the beleaguered members of the nascent freedom movement.

Roger has since been awarded the Polish Order of Merit (1993), the Order of Solidarność (2008), and the "Gloria Artis" Gold Medal for Merit to Culture - Poland's highest honour (2011).


Gloria Artis

Since 1992, Roger has been Director and Professor of the School of Music and Dance at San Francisco State University - which he founded.

Roger has become famous for his recordings with 'Celestial Harmonies' - and, for us, the corresponding live performances in the South West.

In 2007, Roger recorded the Debussy Preludes, Books 1 and 2 - and came to Queen's College, Taunton, for an afternoon recital on Sunday 15th July. 

In 2010, Roger made a definitive recording of J S Bach's 'Well-Tempered Clavier' - and came to King's College, Taunton for an afternoon recital on Sunday 2nd October 2011.

Celestial Harmonies are currently producing a recording of Roger's concert at the Sandesaal (Concert Hall) in Bremen in January 2007, when he played the music of Debussy, Bach - and Chopin.

Roger flew over from San Fancisco on Sunday to prepare for a recital of Debussy Estampes and Preludes, and Chopin Mazurkas, at the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford this Saturday.

Before that, however, Roger will give a rare Devon performance, at St Disen's Church in Bradninch on Thursday evening - of the full programme he will be playing in Oxford.
