Without Music Through the Night

With Music Through the Night

Saturday 25 February 2017

12:00 AM. Music Through the Night

Adolphe Sax

The great musical progress of the 19th century would not have been possible without the ingenuity of the instrument builders, who patiently and painstakingly tinkered away, often barely keeping abreast of the demands that Romantic-era composers were making in their scores. Instrument builders too had their supreme virtuoso craftsmen, who blended aesthetics, beauty of tone, and practicality of use in developing the forms that we know and play today. And chief amongst these, as far as brass and winds is concerned, was Adolphe Sax. Thomas Goss looks at the work of the great 19th century instrument maker. (RNZ)

WOMAD Taranaki 2016

Five programmes of live performances from artists recorded at the Festival held in New Plymouth last March

(4) Seun Kuti and Egypt 80

Nigerian born Seun Kuti and his band Egypt 80 fill the Bowl stage in New Plymouth's scenic Pukekura Park. Like his father, Fela, and his older brother Femi, Seun Kuti is a song-writer and saxophonist with a political conscience, who plays his own inimitable brand of afrobeat. He insists he hasn't tried to change his father's musical template. It's more of a case of letting it evolve. "Music shouldn't change. It should evolve. …Changing the music isn't the term I would use to classify what I am doing. And also I wouldn't say I'm advancing the music...I think terms like that kind of diminish what the art of music is, because now nobody cares about how good you are. The question now is how many records did you sell? Artists are constantly compared to their album sales...I feel that for me it is about the art evolving. I wouldn't say I'm changing it." (recorded at Bowl of Brooklands, Pukekura Park, New Plymouth by RNZ)
