Dimitri Shostakovich is one of the most interesting composers of the 20th century, without a shadow of a doubt. Perhaps most famous for his Symphony Number 5, and jazz suites, this legendary composer was notable for using a signatory motif in a number of his compositions. Shostakovich’s name, as ‘D-S-C-H’ translates musically to ‘D-Eb-C-B’.

Through a series of truly incredible scientific processes, earlier this month a duet between a piano and a star (yes, a star) was recorded and released. The star is from the constellation Camelopardalis and measurements have been taken over a number of years to show that the star’s surface actually vibrates and rings like a bell and gives off multiple frequencies.

In a 2013 interview with Karl Jenkins, he mentioned the fact that he could write his music anywhere as long as he had his digital piano with him. It is really marvellous (and somewhat unexpected) to see the greatest classical composers today using electric pianos as one of their main composition tools.
Jenkins was brought to public light after the release of his astounding Adiemus compositions, recorded in 1994. He then went on to release a whole range of other immensely successful compositions including his Armed Man (premiered 2000), Stabat Mater (2008), and Palladio (2005). When you listen to Jenkins’ work, a trained ear can detect the composition methods (for example the use of the electronic piano) as they are reflected in numerous aspects of his music.

Wagner is sometimes considered to be a somewhat controversial composer (known to be Hitler’s favourite writer and a known anti-Semite). I fell in love with the Ring Cycle by Wagner back in 2010 after having been dragged along to Birmingham Symphony Hall by my cousin who had somehow (I still don’t know how) managed to secure us free tickets to see Opera North perform part one. At the time, I was completely ignorant of the Ring Cycle and had absolutely no idea what I was in for – I was expecting maybe an hour of easy listening. It was only three hours later after the performance had finished, that I understood what all the fuss was about.
