Of Note

Composer Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate was only eight years old when he announced to his parents that he wanted to be a concert pianist when he grew up. His middle name, Impichchaachaaha’, means “high corncrib” and is his inherited traditional Chickasaw house name. A corncrib is a small hut used for the storage of corn and other vegetables. In traditional Chickasaw culture, the corncrib was built high off of the ground on stilts to keep its contents safe from foraging animals.

As a child, Jewish cantoral music played on the radio by her father had a huge impact on Shulamit Ran. This is apparent in works such as her opera Between Two Worlds-The Dybbuk; Credo/Ani Ma’amin (part of And on Earth, Peace: A Chanticleer Mass); and Supplications, with a text drawn from Deuteronomy and fragments of three Psalms. Her Symphony won her the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 1991.

A lover of literature and mountaineering from an early age, the young Leone Sinigaglia spent many holidays in Cavaretto outside his native city of Turin, a place that would provide him with much inspiration. The Romanze  for Horn and String Quartet was among his works that show a deep love for the musical spirit of the region. Others include the two Piedmontese Dances opus 31, the Suite for Piemonte, and an enormous amount of popular song drawn from from the local oral tradition.
