The Glass blog activity

The Glass seems to be on pause right now, since no article has been published for 3 months. The last article in The Glass, "Film Review: David Donnelly’s ’Maestro’", is dated 2016-03-22.

"On pause" does not mean, however, that The Glass will not resume its activity soon, nor that its articles are less interesting than another more active source.

This editorial activity is no different from that recorded for the previous period.

Maestro Endeavor Pictures Writer/Director: David Donnelly Producers: Ford D’Aprix David Donnelly 58 Mins. (DVD/Broadcast version) Maestro is a documentary on the Estonian-American orchestral conductor Paavo Jarvi, and it gives not only a brief but brilliant glimpse into Paavo’s life and career, but also an honest point of view on music (classical music, to be specific) and it’s role in our lives. The film features Jarvi himself in interviews and various pieces of footage throughout the years, as well as interviews with many of his colleagues in the concert world such as Hilary Hahn, Joshua Bell and several others. Watching this, it appears that the direction for the film was not to just delve into the life of one person only, but to transcend this and make it more about why the music we call ‘classical music’ exists, what makes it so special, why we need it, and what it means […]

Remember Melissa Jane Dichiera, the rock and roll goddess (A term I had used to describe her) that was featured on The Glass back in 2013? She is back and still going strong as a classy front woman for 3 different bands, and these days she even has time for a day job at Universal Studios. Of course the reason I knew of her in the first place was her appearance on the VH1 Classic reality show Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp. We all decided it was time to do another great Q&A for The Glass! CM: What have you been doing since last time we spoke? Melissa: I have done a lot in the last three years. I had the pleasure of being the fill in singer for the US tour of System Divide in 2013 being one of the opening acts for Epica and performing along […]

From the composer: “We often read stories and see images in the news about violent events in the Middle East, but we very rarely get to hear the perspective of an individual who lived through them. Inspired by loved ones who grew up during the Lebanese Civil War, it is my hope that Bombs of Beirut provides a sonic picture of what day-to-day life is like in a turbulent Middle East –– not filtered through the news […]

Fischer, Richard Brooks, Eugene Marlow. Concert of New Music for Winds and Piano NYCC Concert St. Peter’s Church, NYC April 21, 2015 Written by Dave Hall On Tuesday, April 21, 2015, I was pleased to attend a New York Composers Circle concert at St. Peter’s Church in New York City. Like previous NYCC concerts I’ve attended, this evening’s program, one dedicated to music for wind instruments, was varied and entertaining. The evening began with a very beautiful piece for oboe, violin, cello and piano by Susan J. Fischer called “Intermezzo”. The next piece on the program was a work for solo oboe by Peri Mauer aptly called “Journey”. A fanciful piece that explored […]
