Don't Fence Me In Review

In full disclosure, I must admit: Western music and storytelling? I can’t. get. enough. I call it my “cowboy complex.” I grew up in Texas and Santa Barbara’s debut of National Council for the Traditional Arts performance of Don’t Fence Me In was music to my ears. The music, the rhetoric, the Western garb, the traditional instrumentation and composition…memories of my childhood bubbled up to the surface and I was reminded of a romanticized Wild West where music was a conduit to express heartache, simple pleasures, and good ol’ odes to the land. It’s music with heart and music with history. From the beautiful fiddle and harmonies of the Quebe Sisters, to the yodeling and steel guitar of Montana native Wylie & The Wild West, to the bone chilling chants of North Bear, to the Tex-Mex tunes from the Texmaniacs, to rodeo poet Paul Zarzyski’s amusing and charming recitations,Don’t Fence Me In covered everything from the “range, ranch, reservation and roadhouse, from the valley of the Rio Grande to the Bitterroot Mountains.” This performance was a re-education and a reintroduction to a facet of American culture that is alive and kickin’ with many more stories to tell and many more songs to sing.

Julia Fischer Review

On Thursday night at Campbell Hall, German violinist Julia Fischer reaffirmed her reputation as being one of the world's most technically gifted talents by providing a riveting and emotional performance with piano accompaniment, Milana Chernyavska. With the many accolades to her name (Artist of the Year at the '07 Gramophone Awards, Instrumentalist of the Year in the '09 MIDEM Classical Awards, releasing the fastest-selling classical album on iTunes in '09) along with prestitgious international awards peppering her extensive resumé, Fischer performed Mozart's "Sonata for Piano and Violin in B-flat Major", Schubert's "Rondo for Violin and Piano in B minor," Debussy's "Sonata for Violin and Piano in G Minor," and Saint-Saëns' "Sonata for Violin and PIano No. 1 in D minor" with mesmerizing mastery and technical achievement. Extra chairs had to be provided to the patrons of the full venue who were taken by Fischer's rousing interpretations of these classics with a technique that powerfully combines reputable tradition with impressive range. The juxtaposition of rigid composition with natural cohesion and sonic continuity elucidates Fischer's innate ability to weave together a performance that illicits a powerful response from both those well-versed in classical music and those just beginning their journey into this beautifully tender and compelling musical terrain.
