  • A provocative Entertainment | Stanford Live
    a heady atmosphere of experimentalism in Paris that fueled new ambitions even as their European counterparts enthused over the energy and directness they found in the latest American music The Atlantic crossing becomes fraught with ambivalence it s a vital means of escape but also offers the promise of a new beginning Naturally the focus on destinations has only been intensified by our modern patterns of travel get there fast by the most direct route no frills along the way In the 1930s the revolution in air travel already on the horizon was foreshadowed by the brief heyday of Germany s Zeppelin company and its promotion of the dirigible alternative But the state of the art ocean liners like the SS Normandie and the SS Isle de France while speeding up the trip across the Atlantic offered those in the top classes the leisurely pleasures of stylish travel including much in the way of musical entertainment It s not a coincidence that one of the most potent recurring images in the modern mythology of the doomed Titanic involves the heroic last stand of its eight piece orchestra The special aura attaching to this mode of travel combined with its historical reality as the route by means of which thousands of musicians fled Hitler s Germany led to the decision to anchor Atlantic Crossing in a literal context In planning the program Chanticleer and NCCO decided they wanted to encourage the audience to imagine an actual ocean liner passage the kind of voyage during which these musicians would have encountered one another or even participated in musical events If you were on this ship what would you have heard It might have been the European music from that time with the best of the European artists coming to America says Salerno Sonnenberg Some of these like Béla Bartók never had time to adjust to their surroundings in America others particularly Weill and Paul Hindemith went on to create a significant body of work in their newly adopted homeland taking pleasure in and emphasizing its cultural context Weill also serves as the focal midpoint of the program in which the two ensembles join together for the first time for an all stops out arrangement of his iconic Three Penny Opera number Mack the Knife Weill is a powerful symbolic choice as well since he represents the convergence of traditional European classical training and populist vernacular directness a reminder of the creative synergy that got shut off by the damaging dichotomy between serious music and entertainment that s arguably a relic of the postwar era As Weill unforgettably put it I have never acknowledged the difference between serious and light music There is only good music and bad music Consisting of just eight measures some basic chords backing its eminently whistleable tune Mack the Knife is a kind of blank slate that gets written over and layered into a ten minute fantasy in the arrangement by Clarice Assad a frequent collaborator with NCCO
