Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, 5/31 & 6/4

I don’t keep such accounts anymore, so when I learned of Henri Dutilleux’s death at the age of 97 on May 22 it came as a surprise to me that he’d been my favorite living classical composer for the last ten years or so. I’ve played his music on the show before, but this time it seemed right to do a two-hour tribute—Updoc, Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday—spelled by contrasting episodes from other recent departures: George Jones, Georges Moustaki, and Ray Manzarek. Dutilleux’s music extends a very French line of development from Fauré through Debussy, Ravel, and Koechlin into a postwar idiom that can go atonal without losing touch with exquisite tonal beauty, formal nuance, and endlessly subtle detail. There is nothing of system or dogma in it, so it’s no surprise that Dutilleux and Pierre Boulez did not get along. By all accounts, Dutilleux was a fine and generous fellow, an excellent teacher, an exemplary family man, and such a perfectionist in his work that his oeuvre, once he got this side of Ravel’s influence and into his own full voice, is pretty much one masterpiece after another, widely spaced across the years. If you like sheer beauty, this show’s for you.henridutilleux

Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, May 24 & 28

It’s hard to think of two composers more dissimilar than Arnold Schoenberg and George Gershwin—the arch-systematiser of tonal relations and the great American melodist—but the two were good friends and tennis buddies in Los Angeles, and when Gershwin died at the age of 38 (!) in 1937, Schoenberg recorded a spoken tribute to him almost astonishing in the fullness of its praise. This week’s Updoc—Friday at 8PM and noon next Tuesday, Lower East Side Tenement time—starts off with that encomium, then segues to Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue in—what else?—Leonard Bernstein’s version. Later on there’s some clarinet music from Don Byron and Jimmy Hamilton, and one of Schoenberg’s finest pieces that is also one of the easiest to take: his Piano Concerto of 1942, allegedly commissioned by Oscar Levant, and definitely performed by Glenn Gould. Then Gershwin’s American in Paris, also thanks to Lenny, and a performance of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto as gobsmackingly beautiful as any I’ve ever heard or dreamed of, by Sabine Myer, Claudio Abbado and the Berlin Philharmonic. You could do worse than stopping by to listen for a couple of hours. Really.gershwinschoenberg
