Walter Piston est né en 1894 à Rockland, Maine (USA). Son père, un marin italien, avait changé son nom de Pistone en Piston lorsqu'il avait émigré aux Etats-Unis. La famille s'installa à Boston en 1905, et Walter Piston fit des études d'ingénieur à la Mechanical Arts High School de Boston, mais son inclination pour l'art le conduisit à s'inscrire au Massachusetts Normal Arts School, où il étudia principalement la peinture, et à prendre des leçons de piano avec Harris Shaw, qui fut aussi le professeur d'orgue de Virgil Thomson (1896-1989). Avec l'aide de Shaw, Piston fut admis à Harvard en 1920, où il eut en particulier comme professeurs Edward Burlingame Hill (1872-1960), William Clifford Heilman (1877-1946), Archibald Thomson Davison (1883-1961) et Edward Ballantine (1886-1971). Il séjourna à Paris de 1924 à 1926, entra à l'Ecole Nationale de Musique, et fut élève de Paul Dukas (1865-1929), de George Enesco (1881-1955) et de Nadia Boulanger (1887-1979).Lire la suite ›

HASH(0x91dcac3c) étoiles sur 5 Historically fascinating, if musically lacking 9 août 2000
Par Ahmed E. Ismail - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This CD may not contain musical masterpieces, but as a recording it is of enormous musical interest, particularly because of its casting in the central work, Blitzstein's Airborne Symphony.
People who have seen the movie "Cradle Will Rock" know that Orson Welles had worked with Blitzstein many years previous on the latter's anti-fascist musical. Thus, his appearance as narrator of Blitzstein's Airborne Symphony many years later does not appear to be so much of a surprise.
Welles's performance is histrionic at times, to be sure, yet it's not entirely inappropriate to the spirit of the music, which is intentionally bombastic. The music is decidedly uneven, with the final sections, starting with the "Ballad of the Bombadier," being the most enjoyable. Welles's grave, then manic, shouts of "Warning!" in the work's final bars have to be heard to be believed--you'll either come away terrified or laughing, depending on your temperament.
The other works are more or less fillers to the main work--competently performed and recorded, but nothing particularly exciting. All in all, though, this disc is of interest to afficionados of American music, and all those eager to learn more about one of the more unusual artistic collaborations of the twentieth century.

HASH(0x91dcf5a0) étoiles sur 5 Broadway Meets The Symphony or Vice Versa 2 juin 2011
Par James S. Eisenberg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
The program included on this disc features two composers that conductor Leonard Bernstein actually studied with (Hill and Piston), and Blitzstein who was a major influence. Marc Blitzstein's AIRBORNE SYMPHONY is an odd, broadly theatrical concert work that is neither really a choral symphony or a cantata. Essentially it is a pageant-like Broadway musical tricked out to symphonic proportions. It is very entertaining, but hardly profound. Written for tenor and baritone soloists, narrator, mixed chorus and large orchestra, it's topical purpose, to open up the second front in Europe, was negated by the fact that it wasn't premiered until a year after the cessation of WWII hostilities. It is grand, grandly absurd, and oddly touching.
The loveliest moment is also the most Broadway tinged, a touching ballad encapsulating a letter from an airman to Emily, the sweetheart who is waiting at home. (Beautifully sung by MET tenor Andrea Velis.) David Watson is the excellent baritone, and Orson Welles the sonorous, sometimes absurdly hammy narrator. The work is a mess, but an endearing one.
The fillers are the once popular suite from Walter Piston's THE INCREDIBLE FLUTIST, a rock solid and appealing example of American musical conservatism, and Edward Burlingame Hill's PRELUDE FOR ORCHESTRA, a fascinating example of impressionist style in the French manner.
The sound recordings are first rate.
There are good liner notes, but no texts for the Blitzstein.

HASH(0x91dcf1ec) étoiles sur 5 Bernstein and his forces give their all, but this is dated propaganda music 1 février 2013
Par Andrew R. Barnard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Sony Classical has designated Blitzstein's Airborne Symphony as an American Master, but World War II didn't happen yesterday. After the name, there's nothing that could possibly be mistaken for a symphony in this hour-long rambling propaganda music. It uses music commissioned by the Air Force for use in film. Leonard Bernstein was enthusiastic about the music, encouraging Blitzstein to rewrite the music after the original score was lost. (It was later recovered.)

I'm not sure how Bernstein had time to conduct such unabashed propaganda music, which doesn't contain any trace of greatness. There are moments of humor and the overall feel is of purposeful amateurism. Written for large orchestra, men's chorus and narrator in three parts, the two concluding parts are devoted entirely to the Allied cause. The other reviewers who find the work historically fascinating aren't alone. I do too, but after an hour, it's hard to remain interested.

No matter what one thinks of the work, Bernstein couldn't have championed it better. His conducting is expansive and bouncy, letting the work's brash energy--its only real attraction--come to the surface. Orson Welles does a fantastic job as narrator. He's drawling, rough, and adventurous, highlighting the best in the work. In all, everyone responds with rapt commitment, and the mood is one of jollity and coarse adventure. It remains a mystery to me how Bernstein had time to spend on such music, but his conducting is on such a high plane that it's no wonder that virtually no one else has even tried to solve the work's challenges.

I can't give the musicians any less the five stars, but when the music is outmoded and ordinary, it's only fair to reflect that in my overall rating.

HASH(0x91dca348) étoiles sur 5 Bernstein at his best! 1 janvier 2012
Par J S Lasher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Each of the works, including the almost forgotten "Airborne Symphony" by Marc Blitzstein, are conducted with great passion and commitment by Leonard Bernstein. The New York Philharmonic performs them to their usual high standards.

HASH(0x922e0eac) étoiles sur 5 Un feo programa. 5 juillet 2000
Par Francisco J. Muñoz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Yo compré con mucho entusiasmo éste disco de American Masters Vol. 2, a raíz de que el Vol. 1 (Donde sale la gloriosa Tercera Sinfonía de Roy Harris), me encantó. Pero éste disco realmente es un fiasco. Las tres obras que interpreta Bernstein son de muy poco valor artístico. Lo más rescatable es la obra de Piston, que dicho sea de paso no es de sus mejores composiciones.
Un disco para obviar, a no ser que usted quiera tener todo lo que Bernstein grabó.
