The Hilliard Ensemble: how we chose the music for our final Christmas concert

19 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

After 40 years of singing together, Gordon Jones of the Hilliard Ensemble explains how the group is preparing to bow out with a programme running from medieval masses and carols to 21st-century music from Arvo Pärt

Over the years, the Hilliard Ensemble has developed a flexible approach to the construction of concert programmes. In our many performances with the great saxophonist Jan Garbarek, we usually had a good idea of the music we would sing, but it was not until the sound check in the afternoon that we fine-tuned the set list, adjusting things to suit the acoustic of the building, or to our mood. But for our concert on 20 December at Wigmore Hall, we thought it wise to firm things up further in advance.

SXSW Film Review: ‘The Great Invisible’

12 March 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s a recurring map graphic in “The Great Invisible” that charts the staggering impact of the 2010 Bp oil spill on the Gulf of Mexico and its bordering states, an image that sums up the wide net cast by Margaret Brown’s diffuse but deeply sobering and sympathetic new documentary. Understanding that her subject is a tragedy with many faces, Brown seeks to paint as complex and wide-ranging a portrait as possible, interviewing survivors of the deadly Deepwater Horizon explosion, family members of victims, as well as fishermen, oyster shuckers and others left unemployed in the wake of the devastated Gulf seafood industry. The result may not be quite as distinctive an inquiry into Southern subcultures as her 2009 stunner “The Order of Myths,” but this SXSW grand jury prizewinner nevertheless stands as a uniquely thought-provoking chronicle of an event that, in the absence of any real preventive action taken by oil companies or the U. »
