With the 2022 festival season in sight, the industry is poised for a comeback.

As noted by Quartz, the average price of a concert ticket fell from just $ 12 in 1981 to $ 64 in 2017, nearly double the rate of inflation over the same period. In addition, given the sheer volume of artists in the average music festival lineup combined with the higher production budget, the premium per ticket greatly exceeds that of the average show.

In a data-driven exercise, Nice campsite sought to compile a list of “Best Value Festivals” using a separate set of criteria. The company compared the price consumers pay for tickets to a variety of factors, including a combination of a proprietary “Headliner Value” package, the price of a beer, the cost of food and the number of days.

In cooperation with the Pingtung County government, the Czech Economic and Cultural Office will organize a “Czech in Pingtung” festival from December 1 to 5, sharing the arts and culture of the Czech Republic with the people of southern Taiwan.

According to the local government, the week will begin with a virtual academic workshop between officials from the Czech office and Taiwanese scientists from the National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium, followed by a meeting with students from the National University of Sciences and Pingtung Technologies on December 12. 2.

This will be followed by a free classical music concert to be hosted by Taipei Chamber Players at the Pingtung Performing Arts Center on December 3, featuring music from the operas of 19th-century pioneer Czech composer Bedřich Smetana.

On December 4, the Pingtung County Library will inaugurate its Czech Book Zone featuring works by renowned Czech writers including Milan Kundera and Franz Kafka.

The library will also host a same-day release event for “Hua Shu Chi (花束 集, bouquet), a Chinese translation of” Kytice “, a collection of ballads by Czech folklorist and poet Karel Jaromír Erben, which have been translated by Lin Shih-hui (林 蒔 慧), Sia Pei-lun (夏沛倫), Lu Chi-hung (呂齊弘) and Chen Yu-ju (陳 宥 汝).

That night, the 2020 Czech-language film “Charlatan”, loosely based on the life of Jan Mikolášek, a famous herbal healer from the turn of the 20th century who was later imprisoned by the Communist regime of Czechoslovakia, will be shown in an outdoor square in the library.

The Pingtung County government thanked the office for “bringing the Czech Republic to Pingtung” in a statement released on Monday, welcoming the decision to give local residents the opportunity to experience Czech culture without traveling abroad.

Despite the spread of COVID-19 reducing economic, business and travel activities around the world since the pandemic began in early 2020, the Pingtung County government has said that “beautiful things like arts and culture do not are not limited by time and space ”.

The idea of ​​organizing a “Czech in Pingtung” week was inspired by the planned concert of the Taipei Chamber Players dedicated to Czech music.

In March, Patrick Rumlar, head of the Czech representative office in Taiwan, paid a visit to Pingtung, during which he was very impressed with the large facilities there, including the performing arts center, which houses Taiwan’s third largest organ, according to the statement.

Rumlar also praised the award-winning Pingtung Municipal Park, also known as HEITO 1909, a 20-hectare urban park carved out of the ruins of a former Taiwan sugar factory, and the VIP area, an urban district. rejuvenated in a former military village.

As a result, Rumlar was eager to return to Pingtung as soon as he learned of the December concert, the statement said, with the concert serving as a catalyst for the organization of the five-day “Czech in Pingtung” festival.

“Although we cannot fly overseas, Pingtung will not stop interactions with the international community,” Pingtung County Magistrate Pan Meng-an (潘孟安) said in the statement.

The industrial platform of the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival celebrates its 20e edition looking towards the future of cinema.

The seven-day Industry @ Tallinn and Baltic event, which runs November 19-26, launches Black Nights Discovery Campus, a program that helps emerging film professionals in the region take the next step in their international careers.

The 20e anniversary “seemed like a good time to start something new, to join our previous training efforts and really move forward,” said Marge Liiske, Managing Director of Industry @ Tallinn and Baltic Event. “We are fortunate to already have an existing audience for our current talent programs. “

These include Black Nights Stars, the talent showcase for actors in the Baltic Sea region, organized in partnership with the International Casting Directors Network. Eight emerging talents will receive an international star, selected by casting directors, including Timka Grin from Bosnia and Herzegovina, who chose the winner of the Camera d’Or at Cannes. Murina and worked on the James Bond blockbuster Fall from the sky.

For production designers, the Black Room will offer a four-day masterclass on designing impactful cinematic worlds. This year’s mentors include two decorators from the Nordic region: Sabine Hviid, who worked on Thomas Vinterberg’s Oscar-winning film Another round; and Christian Olander, whose credits include Tom from Finland and Black ’47.

In addition, the 10th edition of the Music Meets Film, focused on composers, this year will include an award for young composers, while the Future to Film strand has been relaunched with two strands: the Script Pool competition, featuring five film projects. ; and Discovery Showcase, featuring six directors nominated for the 2021 European Discovery Fipresci Award at the European Film Awards.

Future to Film will also feature a talk by famous Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur, focusing on the difficult transition from first to second feature film.

Events will take place in person and virtually, in line with the hybrid approach of the broader industrial platform, which is expected to accommodate 650 guests.

Work in progress

In addition to the new Discovery Campus, the Black Nights industrial platform hosts three Works In Progress strands, including international projects, the Baltic Event for Baltic and Finnish titles, and Just Film, for works focused on children and young people. ; and International. International working projects in progress include the UK-Czech Republic co-production Light of Bethlehem, directed and produced by Czech filmmaker Jan Sverak.

The industry team expects a greater in-person presence in Tallinn than they anticipated. “We expected this to be another mostly virtual event, especially in light of the crown uncertainty in Europe,” Liiske said. “So it was a very positive surprise for us that we reached our full capacity for the guests on site. “

However, the industry leader recognizes the value of virtual. “Last year was a banner year for the number of participants with our virtual edition, and we are now firmly committed to remaining a hybrid event, keeping this new audience of global professionals engaged in our summit,” said Liiske.

International cooperation is key to Tallinn’s industrial approach and this year focuses on the UK. The centerpiece will be a case study presentation featuring three UK-Estonia co-productions: Chino Moya’s Lower gods, Tanel Toom Sentinel and that of Ben Parker Interment. It is organized with the British Film Institute, which sends a delegation of producers, industry professionals and BFI representatives to Tallinn.

Two UK projects have also been selected for the Baltic Event Co-Production Market, which comprises a total of 16 projects and runs from November 24 to 25. From the UK are Jonathan Birch Equinox and Sarah Laita’s MS Estonia.

“The UK has an incredibly strong and diverse film industry,” Liiske adds. “It is an obvious choice for Estonian and regional filmmakers to look for collaborations, so [the focus] feels like a real hit to us.

Industry @ Tallinn will also feature the two-day TV Beats Forum, focused on drama series, which includes case studies and screenings of around 20 new series.

The industry platform will once again host the European Film Forum, which will discuss perspectives from the screen, content and tech industries, with panels taking place over half a day on November 22.

Other sessions will examine the jumps in virtual reality; a case study on green production; and masterclasses in leadership, storytelling, financing, sales and distribution.

Reading and Leeds Festival, one of the UK’s biggest and best, confirmed on Twitter that the first news of their 2022 edition will arrive in early December. The 2021 edition had Stomzy, Liam Gallagher and Post Malone headlining, so we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us for 2022.

This naturally led to rumors about who might be the headliner for the festival, with Festival Republic boss Melvin Benn confirming in August that three of the six 2022 headliners had already been booked. One name that comes up frequently is Arctic Monkeys, which would make sense given that the band’s drummer Matt Helders has confirmed that they are close to completing a new album.

They have also announced their first concerts since 2019 but you will have to go far to see them. They’ll be playing dates in Bulgaria, Turkey, Croatia and the Czech Republic in August 2022, maybe they’re gearing up for a big slot machine game in Reading and Leeds? Maybe they will also play at other big festivals in 2022 like Glastonbury, it’s good to meet the boys from Sheffield.

But who else could head to Reading and Leeds? Who would you like to see step onto one of the biggest stages of the UK festival circuit?

One of the most fascinating facets of jazz is its ability to take nuances in different parts of the world without losing its gender identity.

While the core of the discipline remains, for the most part, African American, and anyone looking to make progress in the jazz arena simply needs to gain a thorough understanding of the basics of rhythms, once you have the grammar and rhythm. syntax of the musical. language in your system, you can just peel off as you want. In the business world, this is called “finding your own voice”.

Adam Pieronczyk has had a good idea of ​​where he’s coming from and where he might be heading, for some time now. The 51-year-old Polish reedman is one of the most notable names to list at the second Polish Jazz Festival, which takes place at Tel Aviv’s Terminal 4, November 17-19, with live action supplemented by some online projections of jazz venues in Poland.

The festival kicked off last year in a virtual-only format, under the aegis of the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in Poland, the Polish Institute in Tel Aviv and the Israel Jazz Society, with Barak Weiss as artistic director.

The same crew is also on board this year, with Weiss lining up an impressive array of personalities from the local community, like pianist Anat Fort and saxophonist Daniel Zamir, who in pre-Corona times were busy on the festival of world jazz and club circuit.

Local jazz fans will be delighted to have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the heart of a three-day festival and will, no doubt, be particularly intrigued by the inclusion of Pieronczyk in the program. The saxophonist is a recognized powerhouse of the European jazz scene, and as a must-see exponent of the wilder side of the jazz tracks, although he is certainly not opposed to certain balladic tariffs either.

The saxophonist, composer, conductor and producer has accumulated a very varied discography of 25 albums, starting with Temathe – Water Conversations, released when he was only 25 years old.

His latest record, I’ll Color Around It, is a quartet escapade that spans the gamut from direct jazz to all manner of stylistic dynamics, including abstract sound tapestries and rock starts.

In the meantime, Pieronczyk has put together an eclectic catalog that features duo projects with famous compatriot pianist Leszek Modzer and three releases alongside internationally renowned Czech bassist Miroslav Vitous.

He was also quickly advanced along his professional learning curve by sideman positions with famous Polish avant-garde trumpeter Tomasz Stanko.

“I had the chance to work a lot with him,” notes Pieronczyk.

It was also inspired by the work of iconic Polish pianist-composer Krzysztof Komeda, who would have turned 90 this year and is receiving a tribute in the festival program.

YET AGAIN, growing up in communist Poland did not allow the budding artist to wrap his young ears around the work of the titans of the world stage.

This was made worse by the fact that he lived in the distant Elblag near the Baltic Sea, nearly 300 kilometers north of Warsaw. It wasn’t exactly the center of a cultural world.

“I’ve worked with a lot of great guys, but on the other hand it wasn’t always possible, especially in a small town, to get Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea or John Coltrane or Charlie Parker records. . Nothing.”

On the eastern side of the Iron Curtain, jazz was sometimes enthusiastically promoted by Communist authorities, who wanted to show Americans that they could be good at their own art. Then, without a word of warning, it would suddenly become taboo, and playing jazz could land you in a prison cell or exile in Siberia or some other equally inhospitable environment.

Fortunately for Pieronczyk, he was still young when the Soviet Union began to collapse, but it was still almost impossible to hear the music from the American source. There were all kinds of pirate recordings ingeniously transferred to improbable formats, including x-rays, but Pieronczyk mostly listened to records by local artists which, he notes, “were pretty good.”

Still, the youngster was one step ahead of most.

“I come from a family of musicians,” he explains. “My father is a clarinetist, saxophonist and teacher. My parents, of course, pushed me to play an instrument.

Like many children around the world, he started playing the piano but failed to muster the “sitzfleisch” required to stick to it.

“I played the piano for a few years, but I quickly started to hate it,” he laughs. “I had to train while my friends were playing soccer.”

But this was by no means the end of the youngster’s interest in forging an active role on the music scene. “It wasn’t such a bad thing for me to give up the piano. I have always been surrounded by music. I used to listen to a lot of pop music in the 80s, which was very interesting, and I was a DJ.

His active ante was about to skyrocket.

“Breakdancing came along and I got really interested in it,” he laughs. “I absolutely loved it.”

The street dance form became popular in California and New York City in the 1970s, but like most Western cultural developments, it took a long time to get beyond the Iron Curtain.

It did not take long for Pieronczyk to find his true and lasting means of artistic expression, despite parental opposition. “When I was 16 or 17, I thought about playing another instrument and, because of my father, there was a saxophone in the house. I thought it looked really good, but my parents said they weren’t going to waste any more money on music lessons for me after I gave up the piano.

But the teenager was not to deny. Rather than dissuade him, his parents’ skepticism prompted him to continue. “This is what I called positive-negative motivation. I was a little upset, but in my psyche I said I’m going to show them. I really got attached to the saxophone.

Eventually he won over his parents and, indeed, showed them that he was serious about making progress with the instrument. There was no way to stop him. “I started training eight to ten hours a day. My dream has come true. I appreciate it a lot more. If I had continued with the piano, maybe now I would be a little bored with the piano.

Pieronczyk does not miss the saxophone – he plays the tenor and soprano, as well as an Arabic reed instrument called a zoucra, although he expresses a preference for the upper register saxophone. Over the years, he has expanded and improved his production, drawing on additional cultural baggage from his forays around the world, most notably as artistic director of the Festival Jazz au Chellah in Rabat, Morocco.

He’s also no stranger to electronically fueled textures, which he says are inspired by the 80s pop music of his youth, but tend to simply follow his muse flow. “I’m fortunate to be able to make a living playing the music I want to play – the melodic style, the rhythmic style, the harmonic style and also what I call open music or improvised music.”

PIERONCZYK OPENS the festival on November 17 at 8 p.m., alongside the equally unbridled Fort in what promises to be an intriguing journey into the unknown.

Then, at 10:30 p.m., the reedman will take a trio excursion to some of his own charts.

With other slots tackling a Brazilian take on Chopin’s work and various other culturally-flavored readings from the Polish romantic-era pianist-composer, the Polish Jazz Festival is expected to keep audiences’ ears groomed and prepared.

The Bendigo Chamber Music Festival has announced its 2022 program. Returning for its third year, co-directors Howard Penny and Chris Howlett have assembled a superb roster of Australian musicians. Sophie Rowell, Natsuko Yoshimoto, Sulki Yu, Grace Clifford, Stephen King, Tobias Breider, Daniel from Borah, Amir Farid, Donald Nicholson, Chloe Lankshear, David Elton, Charlotte Miles and Penny and Howlett themselves will all descend on the fourth largest city ​​of Victoria for five days of musical creation in February.

None of these artists come with their own chamber lineup; instead, they’ll mix and match across 16 concerts, creating unique, one-off ensembles that may never perform together again – Farid, Yu, and Howlett performing Beethoven’s ‘Ghost’ trio, or Lankshear and Farid exploring Strauss and Messiaen. According to Howard Penny, that’s the fun part of hosting a festival like this.

“You pull out your little black book and call all these amazing people, and a lot of times we’re able to bring together amazing artists who haven’t performed together yet,” he enthuses. “This may be the first time they’ve met on stage. And it’s a fabulous pleasure.

We’re all entitled to a little fun, I think, after two years of canceled concerts and postponed plans. Penny, in her day job as head of strings at ANAM, has spent most of the last two years teaching music lessons on Zoom – “A world I don’t really want to inhabit in the future, to be honest, “he admits – and looks forward to hearing” live music from people live “again.

Incredibly, however, the Bendigo Festival was largely untouched by the pandemic – knock on wood. The first festival took place in February 2020, before COVID arrived in Australia; their second festival in early 2021 fell into that glorious pre-Delta bubble when life returned to normal; and now, thanks to the vaccines, their third festival also seems to be happening. Of course, it was not without tensions.

“This year the planning was horrible,” says Penny. “We basically planned it four times, with different artists and different programs. But we got there. And then of course, literally the day before the opening concert, Dan Andrews had a press conference at 10:30 p.m., which is never a good thing. We had a few artists from Brisbane, and they were afraid to go home without quarantine, and we had them on flights every day, to refresh them all. And then we also had contingency plans, to keep the program going, with people in Melbourne on hold. But we did, and we came to the end. And the festival took place, so that was a huge relief. And I hope 2022 will be smoother navigation!

“Uncertainty has been the residual trauma of 2021. We can plan, but to what extent is it actually going to happen? How much can we count on? But it was a relief that things fell into place almost sooner, I think, than we had hoped, in terms of the fall of the borders between NSW and Victoria. This sort of thing is just a huge relief.

While it’s a shame not to be able to welcome international artists – the first year the European Chamber Orchestra, of which Penny has been a member since 1989, as resident artists – Penny relishes the presence of so many of world-class Australian musicians. the country at the same time.

“I think one of the really exciting things both for our planning and for the general public in Australia is realizing the incredible talent that we have in Australia,” he said. “It is therefore by no means an ‘alternative’, second-rate festival. We all have these amazing people. And that has actually been very positive. “

“I like to plan festivals, for the public of course – but also for the artists too. I’ve done enough festivals in my life in various places, and it’s always the fun thing: people. But also the repertoire, to discover things that are not necessarily part of the regular fodder of a musical year program in large venues.

Bendigo Chamber Music Festival

The co-directors of the Bendigo Chamber Music Festival, Chris Howlett (L) and Howard Penny (R).

In addition to their concert program, Penny and Howlett have also included two special ‘Inside and Out’ conversations, where one of them discusses a topic close to their hearts, assisted by festival artists performing musical examples. live.

“It’s a casual conversation with a portable mic: chat, music, chat, music,” says Penny. “Just a much more intimate setting to take in new information, I guess. Share our interest in particular things.

“Chris explores the life and works of Clara Schumann, and for me it is the bohemianism of Dvořák Sextet, which involves all kinds of things like particular dance forms and dance rhythms, which underline her particular language; using string instruments, that sort of thing.

“For me this is a very personal thing, because the last four years that I have worked with Harnoncourt in the European Chamber Orchestra, we have explored the music of the Danube – this is what we have done every year, Dvořák, Smetana. But let’s get back to exactly what makes bohemian music bohemian, and the specifics of Dvořák’s language, which is actually extraordinary, and too little explored and understood I think. So yes, it certainly won’t be a musicological discussion, but that explains why I’m excited about the DNA of these particular tracks.

As an example, Penny mentions the Furious Dance – a bohemian, alternating 2/4 and 3/4 time dance, with frequently changing accents – which Dvořák used in several of his works, most notably the eighth of his work. Slavic dances, and also in his Sextet. Smetana deploys a furious in The traded bride also, which Penny has firsthand experience with (or should this be the ‘first foot’?)

“It was part of the staged version of The traded bride that we did with Harnoncourt, ”says Penny. “He had a historic Czech dance teacher from Prague – she was a nervous little woman who was unbelievably intense, and she had brought the dances, and she was telling Harnoncourt what kind of tempo this particular polka must have. She was running the room, it was great. And the whole orchestra spent the afternoon dancing the historic polka, just to put the rhythms in our feet.

But yes there is a furious in The traded bride, and to see what that really means – nothing to do with “fury”, which of course we have in the back of our brains. But no, it’s a very specific village dance, and what it is. So yeah, things like that that I find fascinating.

The other particularity of the festival is of course the place itself. It’s clear from talking to Penny that Bendigo is a very special place in her heart, and that the festival was totally embraced by the city even after just two editions.

“Bendigo has been just fantastic,” says Penny. “The town of Bendigo started the conversation – we had had Bendigo weekends at the Sanguine Festival for a few years before, and the town approached us and asked if we would be interested in trying to create a bigger event, on five days. And they’ve been fabulous in their support.

“And the connection with the city has been brilliant. Of course, everyone is enjoying it – there are hotels, restaurants, stores, and boutiques – and everyone is really excited for every iteration now. “

“Bendigo is such an amazing place, with these fabulous places. We’ve selected the sites to be all within walking distance, so you can get from one to the other fairly easily. And especially our interstate visitors, so that they get a feel for Bendigo rather than another place. “

“And because the festival is so concentrated in a small area of ​​town, there are all these teal thongs walking around, so we have conversations with the audience all the time – and that’s exactly what we want.” . Everyone is involved, and everyone is getting excited about something, or talking about something they just heard. It’s just awesome.

Howlett and Penny have also worked hard to engage with the local community, to make the festival something that establishes strong roots in the city, rather than just blowing away every year. Each year, they organize a community concert with the Bendigo Chamber Choir and Bendigo Symphony at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. And their connection continues long after the circus leaves town.

“We also run festival artist masterclasses for local musicians,” says Penny. “And then of course – we got snooked last year, we just couldn’t do it because of COVID – but in our freshman year we had about 40 forays into schools in the greater Montreal area.” Bendigo during the year. And this is where Chris was phenomenal, he did a lot of research and specifically targeted schools that don’t have a music program, as well as those in less advantaged socio-economic areas. So we’re really trying to do something that matters.

“We want to contribute to Bendigo as much as we want to benefit from Bendigo.”
