  • Issue 7 - 'We Find Ourselves Again'': Recreating Identity through
           Performance in the Community Music Festival
    • Abstract: Duffy, Michelle
      The Festival of Asian Music and Dance articulates a communal identity that is about the practice and presentation of Asian musics. Within the context of a larger, officially defined, multicultural Australia, festival organisers promote both 'authentic' musical practices of Asian countries and cross-cultural collaborative works. As a result, performers create an identity that arises out of the paradox of being in and out of place. Drawing on psychoanalytic ideas about subjectivity, an examination of these performances exposes anxieties around the capacity of white Australia to manage and maintain this ethnically-defined national identity.

  • Issue 9 - Writing Good Sense about Music: The Art of Listening
    • Abstract: Ford, Andrew
      The 'Words about Music' (WAM) course at the Australian Youth Orchestra's National Music Camp aims to sharpen the writing -and talking- skills of its participants, most of whom see themselves as future music journalists. It is not easy to write well or to talk well about music, but even those who naturally command a felicitous turn of phrase will quickly find themselves at a loss for something to say if they can't, in the first place, listen well. My approach to teaching the 'Words about Music' course emphasises listening to music and talking about it as the necessary precursor to being able to write anything remotely sensible on the subject. This article explains how that happens, with many examples taken from actual WAM sessions.

  • Issue 9 - The Impact of Visiting Conductors on the Development of
           Melbourne Youth Music's Annual Music Camp and the Building of a Symphonic
           Band Program within a Youth Orchestra Association
    • Abstract: Mathers, Andrew
      This article starts from the idea of the youth orchestra as an organisational concept rather than a single type of ensemble. It profiles the origins of Melbourne Youth Music's symphonic band program as an educational initiative within the State public school system, its development through affiliations with Yamaha Music Australia and the Australian Band and Orchestra Directors Association (ABODA) and the role of key individuals in this development. In particular, it explores and evaluates the impact on the symphonic band program of visiting overseas conductors at MYM's annual January music camp between 1985 and 2003.

  • Issue 9 - The Family Symphony Orchestra: Growing Up Making Music
    • Abstract: Bohlman, Andrea F; Bohlman, Philip V
      The authors write as father-daughter insiders, representing a family whose two violinist children went through the ranks of Chicago-area youth orchestras. They argue that, in American youth orchestras, all family members are crucial to an orchestra's structure, from fundraising to maintaining tight rehearsal schedules. Auxiliary parent organisations ensure local survival and the necessary contexts for socialisation. The authors' picture of the larger network of youth orchestras in a large American city and the interaction with sister orchestras throughout the USA and the world provides an interesting comparison with Australasia.

  • Issue 9 - Instrumentalising Musical Ethics: Edward Said and the
           West-Eastern Divan Orchestra
    • Abstract: Etherington, Ben
      This article traces the development of a 'contrapuntal' ethic in the work of the Palestinian-American literary critic Edward Said, and the application of this ethic through the formation of the youth orchestra, West-Eastern Divan, a project initiated by Said with the Argentinean-Israeli conductor Daniel Barenboim. It assesses what happens when a theoretical conception of music's ethical potential is used to intervene in the politically charged environment of the Middle East.

  • Issue 9 - The Queensland Youth Orchestra and its Role in the Development
           of Young Musicians: A Case Study of Benefits
    • Abstract: Collett, Morwenna
      Anecdotal evidence suggests substantial benefits to musicians participating in youth orchestras globally. This case study of the Queensland Youth Orchestra (QYO) aims to ascertain whether these advantages exist for its members, identifying specifically what these are, and showing how they aid the development of young musicians. Data was collected using surveys, focus groups and interviews in which current performers, alumni, conductors and administrators were closely questioned on a range of issues. Responses, which were overwhelmingly positive, begin to demonstrate the great impact the QYO has had over the years on its more than six thousand participants.

  • Issue 9 - Youth Orchestras and Repertoire: Towards an Australian Case
           Study
    • Abstract: Pear, David
      During more than a hundred interviews over two years, it became apparent that, apart from some specific exceptions, participants of programs run by the Australian Youth Orchestra were generally acquiescent about the repertoire with which they were presented. Being accepted into the orchestra for the program was their main concern, and thereafter to acquit themselves well during its duration. They were content to leave issues of repertoire selection to the staff, almost as if it were an element in the operational activities of senior management. This study examines three AYO programs (the National Music Camp, AYO Season 1 and AYO Season 2) with their respective repertoire over nearly thirty years, focusing on the last two. It notes observed trends over this time and attempts to account for the fluctuations in content, repetition of works and perceived successes. Some unexpected stakeholders in repertoire selection are identified and the relative importance of their 'investments' are documented.

  • Issue 9 - The Pursuit of Excellence and Social Equity in the AYO's Young
           Australian Concert Artists Program 1999-2007
    • Abstract: Dreyfus, Kay
      AYO's Young Australian Concert Artists (YACA) program is a particular response to demographic features that make the cultural life of Australia distinctive, namely the sparse regional population and the vast distances between population centres. YACA has two distinct music-educational goals: it aims to give advanced young musicians on the cusp of a professional career an intense experience of chamber music skills development (tuition allied to performance opportunities) and, in an interactive framework involving those same musicians, enhance music ensemble education in regional areas. The program thus attempts to reconcile inherent tensions between the pursuit of excellence and the provision of equity of access. This article examines the educational structure of the program's realisation in diverse situations against the backdrop of specific problems of 'big city' versus regional assessments of need. Discussion privileges the strategic partnership between AYO and the Regional Conservatorium network of New South Wales in the provision of YACA programs.

  • Issue 9 - The Australian Youth Orchestra Inc.: Its Identity as a National
           Icon and Expansion of Its Performance and Educational Programs
    • Abstract: Kartomi, Margaret
      This article explores the identity of the Australian Youth Orchestra (AYO) as a national cultural symbol and the role of the company of which it is part (AYO Inc.) in the transmission of orchestral music performance over the past fifty years. It examines the progressive expansion of the company's performance and educational programs from its beginnings as a national music camp, its maintenance of a highly competitive national audition process, the role of the Australian Broadcasting Commission in the AYO's activities, the orchestra's national and international touring, and its recognition and funding by government as a national icon. A study of the origins, development and rationale of its programs since 1948 indicates that AYO Inc. has responded innovatively to specific Australian needs and has constantly monitored the relationship between its educational philosophy and the implementation of its programs, which government requires the orchestra to continually self-assess. Research is based on extensive field interviews with participants, observers, and administrative and music staff at a range of AYO Inc. programs between 2004 and 2006 and supplementary archival sources.

  • Issue 9 - Youth Orchestras in the Global Scene
    • Abstract: Kartomi, Margaret
      This article situates Australian and other exemplars of youth orchestras within a global classification system and identifies the many factors that shape their identities. The key indicators of an orchestra's identity are the nature and extent of its pool of auditioned players, the size of the ensemble, stakeholders' consciousness of its heritage, the pedigree of its tutors and conductors, choice of repertoire, educational and performance programs and the advancement of equity and other ethical policies. Other indicators include funding, performance standard and administrative structure. National youth orchestras frequently serve as cultural ambassadors, while state, regional, city, suburban and institutional or school orchestras accommodate the demands of their respective constituencies. Orchestras that draw from an international pool of players tend also to play out idealistic socio-political roles. Finally, the article discusses the controversial issue of repertoire choice.

  • Issue 8 - Six Decades on the Podium: Interviews with John Hopkins
    • Abstract: Pear, David
      While traditional music training concentrates on the preparation of instrumentalists and musicologists, the instruction of conductors has been left largely to a combination serendipity, the generosity of conducting peers and exemplars and no small degree of osmosis. In this article Professor John Hopkins outlines some of the major events of his early career, which led him not only into conducting, but also to the antipodes. The importance of military bands as a training ground for post-war British musicians is clear, as is the punishing work schedule of players and conductors. The apogee of radio broadcasting took place during his formative years on the podium in Europe, and John Hopkins was able to transport this wealth of experience out to New Zealand at a time when cultural leaders were valued in a manner not seen since. Yet these Cold War years impinged on musical life, as Hopkins's account of conducting a live-to-air performance of Bart k's Concerto for Orchestra, while Russian tanks rolled into Budapest, indicates.

  • Issue 8 - Sonic Narratives: Intermedia Transformations in the Work of
           austraLYSIS
    • Abstract: Dean, Roger T; Smith, Hazel
      In mainstream media and multimedia, sound has normally been subservient to text and image, and the potential interrelationship of the different media has not been fully exploited. However different media share transferable semiotic characteristics, may produce co-existent narratives, and can be technologically modified to enhance their exchange. We discuss the interplay between sound, spoken word, screened text and realtime image generation both at a theoretical level and with regard to creative works, particularly those of our multimedia ensemble, austraLYSIS.

  • Issue 8 - Reception, Recognition and Reputation: Australia's Intervarsity
           Choral Festivals in Mainstream Press Criticism since 1950
    • Abstract: Campbell, Peter
      Each year, Australia's university choirs come together to present a largescale choral festival. An examination of the newspaper criticism of festival concerts since they commenced in 1950 suggests that critics hold many preconceived views concerning these festivals, some of which have led to an underestimation of the contribution these festivals have made to the promotion of music and of new composition in Australia over the past half a century.

  • Issue 8 - From Little Acorns: The First Queensland State Quartet,
           1944-1948
    • Abstract: Thomas, Adrian
      In 1944 the Queensland Government invited violinist Ernest Llewellyn to form a string quartet with the purpose of encouraging the appreciation of music among its citizens and particularly in State Schools. For four years the quartet performed in schools throughout Queensland and gave evening concerts in Brisbane, regional and outback communities. As well, it undertook several concert tours of Eastern Australia and New Zealand. Following its disbandment in 1948, a second quartet repeated the process until it, too, disbanded in 1953. Through an examination of their reception history in public concerts in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, reports on their work in schools and in the wider community, this article traces the artistic development of the first quartet and their contribution to cultural life in Australia in the mid twentieth century.

  • Issue 8 - Modernism, The Canon and Schoenberg Reception in Australia
    • Abstract: Shaw, Jennifer
      In September 1949, the Australian music journal The Canon published a jubilee tribute issue in honour of composer Arnold Schoenberg's seventy-fifth birthday. The issue is remarkable for the quality and variety of contributions and for the 'time capsule' that the issue presents of views towards Schoenberg and his music and towards Modernism in Australia. Drawing on unpublished correspondence between Schoenberg and the Canon editors, this article focuses on significant contributions in the jubilee issue and the role of the issue in the reception of Schoenberg's music in the immediate post-war years in Australia.

  • Issue 8 - Johann Secundus Kruse - an Australian First: A Study in Gender,
           Class and Nationality
    • Abstract: Selleck, Johanna
      The Melbourne-born virtuoso violinist Johann Secundus Kruse (1859-1927) was the first Australian instrumentalist to achieve international recognition. He belonged to the first generation of the new Australians where the native-born population outnumbered foreign-born and also the first generation of Australian musicians who trained professionally in European and English institutions, enabling them to reach the top of their profession. This article examines newspaper and journal articles concerning Kruse in the context of wider issues of Australian identity (national, class and gender), based on the premise that the musical issues shed considerable light on the broader issues, and conversely the social context provides the necessary medium for interpreting musical events.

  • Issue 8 - Four Cheers for Peggy Glanville-Hicks: A Survey of Her
           Australian Reception to 1975
    • Abstract: Robinson, Suzanne
      Although born and educated in Australia, Peggy Glanville-Hicks's career was made almost entirely overseas. To what extent, then, was the Australian press aware of her career and achievements' While her absence between the years 1932 and 1975 was punctuated by brief visits which generated interviews in the local press and broadcast as well as public performances, and while these served to inform Australians of musical life in the United States and Europe, her participation in that milieu was otherwise almost unnoticed. This paper relies on numerous archival collections of reviews and correspondence to indicate firstly the necessity of travelling overseas to make a career and, secondly, the factors which conspired against its recognition at home.

  • Issue 7 - Locating Klezmer Music in Australia
    • Abstract: Maxwell, Aline Scott
      Klezmer music, a Jewish vernacular genre of Eastern European origin, underwent a revival and re-invention in the United States in the 1970s and became popular in Australia in the 1990s. This article surveys the history of klezmer, both as a term and a music, and explores the nature and diversity of Australian klezmer music through an examination of some Australian klezmer bands in three states. These bands each configure klezmer music differently, creating highly localised versions that accommodate individual musical goals, articulate differences between communities of place, and resonate in distinctly local ways with the genre's revival history and source culture.

  • Issue 7 - Jewish Music: Beyond Nation and Identity'
    • Abstract: Kornhauser, Bronia
      The concepts of nation and identity are particularly challenging when applied to Jewish music with its vast assortment of genres and styles, this multiplicity being a consequence of almost two millennia of diaspora existence. Given its diversity, what are the characteristics that give Jewish music its identity' And given the non-physical nature (until 1948) of Jewish statehood, can Jewish music be regarded as the music of a particular nation' This article will attempt to address such questions, basing its information on research undertaken in Australia, with musical illustrations from collections housed in the Australian Archive of Jewish Music at Monash University.

  • Issue 7 - 'Awakening': The Politics of Indigenous Control and Authenticity
           at Sydney 2000
    • Abstract: Reed, Liz
      In this article I argue that, in spite of significant control of the 'Awakening' sequence of the Sydney 2000 Olympics Opening Ceremony by Australian Indigenous artists Stephen Page and Rhoda Roberts, the overall effect of this event and of the Closing Ceremony was that of a palimpsest, in which the Indigenous presence was written over by non-Indigenous narratives of a newly 'reconciled' nation. In this way, the pre-Mabo narrative of Australian history, which begins with the arrival and 'settlement' by Europeans, was reinscribed.

  • Issue 7 - Awakening 'The Fire Within:' Symbols, Rituals and Reconciliation
    • Abstract: Ryan, Robin
      During the Sydney 2000 Olympic season, black and white Australians experienced a sense of unprecedented national ardour and cohesion. Indigenous cultural symbols and rituals - projected in universal interface along with positive images of athlete Cathy Freeman - boosted the push for Aboriginal Reconciliation articulated since 1991. As an operating notion, 'belonging-in-parallel' slotted comfortably into the ancient Olympic model of the neutral precinct. This article highlights the contribution that music and the allied arts played in metaphorising the euphoric, but ultimately temporary, experience of a brotherhood of man.

  • Issue 7 - Tempo Bands, Metre and Rhythmic Mode in Marri Ngarr 'Church
           Lirrga' Songs
    • Abstract: Barwick, Linda
      During the 1970s, the Marri Ngarr composer Pius Luckan and his brother Clement Tchinburur created a set of liturgical songs ('church lirrga') based on the didjeridu-accompanied dance-song genre Lirrga, one of several public ceremonial genres in Wadeye, NT. Musical analysis and discussion with composers shows that the songs fall into named distinct tempo ranges ('tempo bands'), that tempo bands correlate with different metres in the vocal part (this combination is termed 'rhythmic mode'), and that singers highlight rhythmic mode by systematic juxtaposition of contrasting songs. Accounts of similar compositional practices in other Australian song repertoires are noted.

  • Issue 7 - 'Djiliwirri Ganha Dharranhana, Waŋa Limurruŋgu:' The
           Creative Foundations of a Yolŋu Popular Song
    • Abstract: Corn, Aaron; Gumbula, Neparrna
      This article explores compositional practice among Yolŋu bands in North-East Arnhem Land through discussion of a popular song by Neparrŋa Gumbula entitled 'Djiliwirri.' Neparrŋa is a member of Soft Sands which was among the earliest popular bands formed in Arnhem Land when it was established at Galiwin'ku in 1970. Discussion of this song demonstrates how, through popular band repertoires, Yolŋu musicians employ traditional themes and musical materials to project their profound religious ties to ancestors and hereditary estates.
