- Music for the banned: S.F. concert with anticensorship theme
By Joshua Kosman - Tuesday Sep 19, 2017
The forces of repression continue to try to control what people write and read, and the musicians of the Bay Area chamber ensemble Phonochrome aren’t having it. To coincide with Banned Books Week, the ensemble’s director, flutist Elizabeth Talbert, has assembled a program of vocal and instrumental music linked to themes of censorship. Among the offerings are the Catalan folk song “Song of the Birds,” championed by cellist Pablo Casals during his political exile from Franco’s Spain; songs by Copland and Debussy that were censored at various times for their libidinous content; and songs with texts by the always provocative Dorothy Parker and Maya Angelou.

By the very nature of the enterprise, a period-instrument ensemble like the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra is going to devote nearly all of its attention to the music of the 18th and early 19th centuries. So the rare occasions when the group turns to contemporary fare take on added significance. It was that heightened sense of the moment that made Philharmonia’s season-opening concert in Stanford University’s Bing Concert Hall on Wednesday night, Oct. 4 — featuring the U.S. premiere of a newly commissioned work by Scottish composer Sally Beamish — an even more grievous disappointment than it would otherwise have been.
