This time on All the Cool Parts, I have a very interesting and candid conversation with Brad Wells. We talk about his vocal group Roomful of Teeth, the music on their amazing debut album, and about all of the incredible things that have happened to them over the past year. Plus, Cyndi Lauper called them “Teethful of Awesome.” So you know, there’s that.
This week on SoundNotion, pianist Aleck Karis joins us from San Diego. His new album of works by Webern, Wolpe, and Feldman is out in December. Other topics include the IMSLP scare (Deemer!), German orchestra issues, and Caroline Shaw’s “Partita” remixes.
- This week on SoundNotion, pianist and educator Aleck Karis joins us from San Diego.
- His new album, Webern, Wolpe and Feldman is out on Bridge Records in December, and he’s playing the entire album live on December 8th in New York.
- The classical music world erupts in horror over false rumors that IMSLP was shutting down. We have no proof, but we’re positive that it was all #FoTS Rob Deemer‘s fault.
- Austerity in Germany threatens to “merge” the adventurous Southwest Radio Orchestra in Baden-Baden with its more conservative neighbor in Stuttgart (YAY – More overtures!!). An impassioned op-ed in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung signed by 160 maestros and an open letter signed by 148 composers seek to stop the merger.
- Caroline Shaw‘s Pulitzer Prize winning Partita for 8 Voices (performed by Roomful of Teeth)is being remixed as part of New Amsterdam Records‘ yearly fundraiser in partnership with Q2 Music. This week’s remix is by Lorna Dune.
- The music world bids farewell to John Tavener with a final premiere.
This week the panel is joined by composer and MATA Festival artistic director Yotam Haber. We cover the finer points of score prep, the subtle craft of festival application and how to parse 600 scores. PLUS! Caroline Shaw and Roomful of Teeth DAMMIT!

- We cover the finer points of score prep, the subtle craft of festival application and how to parse 600 scores.
- ALSO – Got an idea for a great new music concert that reaches for something new? Yotam and the INTERVAL Concert Series want to hear about it. Even (and perhaps especially) if it involves knitting.
- #FoTS Drew McManus says the doomsday clock is at 6 minutes till midnight for the Minnesota Orchestra musicians and administration. The SoundNotion Bureau of Hyperbolic Metaphor approves.
- Brace yourself. Caroline Shaw, a thirty year old singer/violinist/composer, has won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize in Music, AND – you can actually purchase and listen to the piece RIGHT NOW! (Learn all about it from #FoTS Rob Deemer and submit your own work next year.)
