MusicWatch: The examined life

YOB is love; Eugene versus Corvallis; Renegade Opera and PSU Opera; twangy Indian music; and the one true “Messiah.”

Mural from Diego Rivera's Detroit Industry in the Rivera Court, Detroit Institute of Arts.

MusicWatch Monthly: Music is work

Working hard with Renegade Opera, Jim Pepper Native Arts Festival, Cascadia Composers, Lose Yr Mind Fest, Ural Thomas, Amenta “Yawa” Abioto, and more.

MusicWatch Monthly: Becoming marble

Remembering David Bernstein, Tomáš Svoboda, and Metallica. A vinyl celebration of Roselit Bone, Spoon Benders, The Shivas, and Møtrick. Joe Kye sings about grandma.

Statue of Julius Caesar by French sculptor Nicolas Coustou and commissioned in 1696 for the Gardens of Versailles, Louvre Museum.

MusicWatch Monthly: In veni vidi veritas

In which we consider the meanings of music with a Fresh Air Fest, a Columbia Riverkeeper composer-in-residence, a pair of rowdy rock concerts, and a sampling of Chamber Music Northwest.

MusicWatch Monthly: ‘The Flood is Following Me’

In which we discuss Niel DePonte’s chair change, Aminé with Oregon Symphony, Caroline Shaw at The Reser, PCSO premieres Nicole Buetti, Cappella Romana premieres Robert Kyr, Young Composers Project alumni with FNM and MYS and PYP, Dvořák galore, and more.

MusicWatch Monthly: October Surprises

Classical mainstays move into their seasons, a choir dissents, new music sounds out, electronica and rock get experimental, plus jazz and post-punk.

MusicWatch Monthly: Reopening the Rubicon

In the opening remarks at last week’s Makrokosmos festival, pianist and co-Artistic-Director Saar Ahuvia said, “live music is finally back.” That is true, with an asterisk.

MusicWatch Monthly: Get outside

As vaccination rates rise and infection rates fall, Oregon’s music world starts to take to the great outdoors.

MusicWatch Monthly: Labors of love

Shining a light on rose gardens Oregon musicians are tending; listening to Kenji Bunch on behalf of the City of Roses.

MusicWatch Weekly: The living

On the opposite of “the dead.” Living music, the “quick,” the good stuff: paying living performers, promoting living composers, responding to living audiences.
