This week on SN, friend of the show and the strongest beard in new music Rob Deemer brings his new clarinet/bass clarinet concerto (premiered by The President’s Own), we talk music ed standards, Amazon’s new streaming service and Jan Chu heads the NEA.
- This week on SoundNotion, we have long time friend of the show and the strongest beard in new music Rob Deemer with his new clarinet/bass clarinet concerto “Home” (premiered by The President’s Own and commissioned by long-time member of the group Jay Niepoetter).
- Rob also helped NAfME last year with some new education standards for music theory and composition. They hadn’t been updated since 1994.
- Jane Chu officially takes the helm at the NEA.
- In a shocking move (sarcasm added), Amazon has launched a new music streaming service.
Joe Berkovitz of Noteflight.com joins us this week to share with us his new and incredibly exciting cloud-based notation software! It has cloud storage, social score sharing, a brilliant user interface, and you can read it on your iPhone!
- The web-based notation software Noteflight is the brilliant new(ish) project led by our guest Joe Berkovitz. It uses cloud storage, shares with friends, plays well with other software, and is easy to use and looks great on everything from your PC to iPhone!
- Drew McManus tells us how the Nashville Symphony is trying to make a deal, but both sides are leaking to the press in spite of a previous media blackout agreement.
Los Angeles New Music Ensemble music director Christina Giacona joins the panel to discuss the passing of Steve Jobs, the Gramophone Awards (what’s that?), good times in Seattle and Brooklyn, and the perfidy over donor money in the Philadelphia Orchestra.

- Steve Jobs passes but we’ll be listening to his legacy for while yet.
- The panel breaks down this years’s Gramophone winners (it’s like the Grammys in the US, but for classical music).
- The Brooklyn Philharmonic and the Seattle Symphony come out swinging for the 2011/12 season, both under new music directors.
- The panel ponders curriculum for the well rounded music student.
- We grow weary of discussing these stories, but in Philadelphia, the perfidy (look it up) between orchestra and management reaches a new low.
How can we guide students to make better music while still allowing them to make their own artistic decisions? What important non-technical lessons can we share with students early on?
