The Stravinsky Project: A Soldier's Tale

Some of Portland's finest musicians will perform Stravinsky's iconic work about a soldier returning from home, his violin and the devil. Also on the program are pieces inspired by Stravinsky's work. The ensemble will perform selections from jazz artist Wynton Marsalis' A Fiddler's Tale; A Composer's Tale, a completely fictional account of an all-too-brief career of an artist, by Marylhurst music department chair John Paul; and works by three Marylhurst music composition students.

The musicians: Igor Shakhman, clarinet (principal Vancouver Symphony & Marylhurst faculty); Evan Kuhlmann, bassoon (Oregon Symphony); Jeffrey Work, trumpet (principal, Oregon Symphony); Aaron LaVere, trombone (principal, Oregon Symphony); Brian Gardiner, percussion (Vancouver Symphony, Portland Opera Orchestra, Marylhurst faculty); Ron Blessinger, violin (Oregon Symphony and artistic director Third Angle New Music Ensemble); and Jason Schooler, bass (Oregon Symphony). Ken Selden, director of orchestra studies at Portland State University, will conduct.

The Rite to March

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the premiere of The Rite of Spring, Bob Priest selected ten composers in Portland to write one-minute marches to be performed by the Free Marz String Trio. The composers were to choose any aspect of The Rite that specifically spoke to them; a chord, a motive, a rhythm, etc. The result is ten very different marches from ten composers with very different concerns and personalities. The March 8 performance at the Community Music Center was recorded for later broadcast.

John Paul's The Rite Forever March is a mashup of material from the Rite's Spring Rounds and Dance of the Adolescents, as well as Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever.

John F. Paul is active writing music for the concert hall as well as film and video games.  His interests lie in the intersection of the dramatic and architectural aspects of music. He currently chairs the Department of Music at Marylhurst University, where he teaches composition and holds the Joseph Naumes Endowed Chair in Music. 

A Different Nature airs Monday nights on KBOO radio. It is a curatorial program of genre-defying avant-garde music and spoken word that champions historic and modern sound art and spotlights new, emergent experimental music and audio art generally not heard anywhere else.
