    THE LEGACY OF MYRA HESS

    Friday, November 26th, 2010

     

    Dame Myra Hess made her debut in 1907 at the age 17 playing Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto with Sir Thomas Beecham. She made her American debut in 1922 in New York. Although she had several teachers, she considered Tobias Matthay to be her principal influence. 

     

    Hess’s greatest fame came during World War II when she organized a series of concerts at the National Gallery in London. There were eventually 1,700 concerts, with Hess performing in 150 of them.  The programs were extremely helpful in maintaining the morale of Londoners in a period when they were bombarded daily by the Germans. For her contributions during the war, King George VI named her a Dame Commander of the British Empire.  

     

    Although she was a wonderful pianist and had a wide-ranging repertoire, she is best known today for her beautiful transcription of Bach’s “Jesus bleibet meine Freude”, known in English as “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.”

     

    Here is Hess playing her well-known transcription.

     

    The Chicago Cultural Center started a series named in honor of Hess in 1977. The weekly  concerts are broadcast live, or you can listen streamed at WFMT.com

     


    The Story of James Rhodes

    Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

     

     

     “I think I’ve done a kind of reverse Amy Winehouse. I might even cut my hair soon.”

     

    British pianist James Rhodes has become quite a phenomenon in the United Kingdom classical music scene. His story is a “rags to riches” - no - more like a redemption story.  Self-taught, James has inspired many people, but most importantly, himself. He is the first classical artist to be picked up by the Warner Brothers label, hardly a bastion of classical music.

     

    Here is the link to the complete Independent story.
