Percy Grainger's  "Arrival Platform Humlet" for Solo Viola, from "In a Nutshell"   

Cache   

by Vincent Lionti, viola, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Board Member, International Percy Grainger Society. 

My own introduction to the music of Percy Grainger was having the good fortune to take part in a swashbuckling performance of "The Warriors" conducted by Gerard Schwarz at the Waterloo Festival in the summer of 1982, Grainger's Centenary year. Fast forward to February 20, 2011, when I was entrusted with putting together a concert of sixteen Grainger works for a memorial commemoration of his death exactly 50 years before, to the day, in 1961. I began to slowly discover, during those intervening years, one piece after another of Percy's that had irresistible charm, was well crafted and highly original. Because I didn't play a "band" instrument, and was primarily interested in chamber music, I came upon these pieces only by accident or by word of mouth from friends and colleagues. This is how I learned of the existence of the "Arrival Platform Humlet", when my friend the violist Paul Coletti found it hard to believe that I, of all people, had not heard of the work. He promptly supplied me with a copy. Of course, meeting fellow Board member Cora Sowa, who in turn introduced me to Barry Peter Ould and his Bardic Editions of vast quantities of Grainger's chamber music, was a revelation. With Grainger's "elastic scoring", many of his compositions were easily adaptable to various instrumentations, with the composer's blessing. The "Arrival Platform Humlet" is one such piece, but violists have a special affection for it, and like to claim it as their own.* I have always had a great fondness for it and have felt a special connection to the composer when I play it because of the following story:

I had many wonderful conversations with Stewart Manville before he died. Stewart was, as we all know, the great archivist and curator of the Estate of Percy Grainger, and married Percy's widow, Ella, in 1972. Any time I played a concert with a Grainger work on it, I would invite Stewart to say a few words about the music and its composer. It was the next best thing to having the composer there in person. Stewart always graciously accepted my invitations to speak, and would speak rather eloquently while the audience sat transfixed.  He related the story to me (which unfortunately can't be corroborated) about one of the only times (possibly the only time) that he ever came face to face with the composer, waiting (probably in the 1940's) for a train, sure enough, on the arrival platform at the White Plains (New York) train station.  Stewart spotted the great composer standing alone on the platform and inched closer to him. Before Stewart realized what he was doing, he began whistling nervously.  The composer eyed him suspiciously, but then smiled and said, "... the arrival platform, I take it?"  Apparently the train arrived, and they went their separate ways.  One of the last times Stewart spoke publicly was at the 50th Anniversary commemoration concert in 2011, mentioned above. He broke down emotionally during his speech, and had to be encouraged by members of the audience exhorting him to continue.

The "Arrival Platform Humlet" puts the violist through his paces demanding skill, agility, imagination, a solid technique, and to some degree, endurance, even though the piece is only about three minutes long. Numerous and sometimes awkward double stops require spot on intonation, and the player needs to get comfortable climbing into the very highest registers and Everest-like regions of the instrument, demonstrating acrobatic tricks and leaps while up there. The violist may be tempted to compare Grainger's "Humlet" to Paul Hindemith's Solo Viola Sonatas; the two composers were almost exact contemporaries, born 12 years apart and died two years apart. Both were virtuoso proponents of their respective instruments, had huge solo careers, performed and conducted widely, taught at American Universities and institutions, and composed large quantities of music "on the side".

Penelope Thwaites writes in "The New Percy Grainger Companion" that Arrival Platform Humlet  dates from 1908, at the height of Grainger's love affair with the Danish Karen Holten, and the excitement he describes of meeting at the railway station is clearly autobiographical. She also writes that any performance of it "should be fierce and exhilarating". Grainger first met Karen Holten in 1904, when the composer was 22 while on a concert tour with cellist Herman Sandby. They soon began an eight year relationship that ended on the eve of World War I. Their last meeting was at a Copenhagen Railway Station, shortly before Grainger left England for America. Karen Holten married two years later and died in 1953. There seems to be no doubt that Karen Holten was the muse that inspired the creation of the "Arrival Platform Humlet".

*Editor's note - It has recently been reported to the Grainger Society that "Arrival Platform Humlet" is currently being arranged for Solo Tuba!

Minyak Ikan Mampu Memperbaiki Kualitas Sperma   

Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Analisis baru menunjukkan bahwa mengonsumsi suplemen minyak ikan dapat memperbaiki kualitas sperma pada kesehatan pria muda.

Para peneliti seperti yang dikutip dari laman New York Times pada Selasa (21/1/2020), mempelajari 1.679 pria asal Denmark yang melakukan pemeriksaan fisik untuk wajib militer. Usia mereka rata-rata 19 tahun, dan 98 di antara\ mereka mengatakan telah mengonsumsi suplemen minyak ikan tiga bulan sebelumnya.

Dibandingkan dengan mereka yang tidak mengonsumsinya, pria yang mengonsumsi suplemen minyak ikan setidaknya selama 60 hari selama tiga bulan sebelumnya memilki jumlah sperma yang lebih tinggi, proporsi sel sperma normal yang lebih besar, volume air mani rata-rata lebih tinggi dan ukuran testis rata-rata yang lebih besar.

Mereka juga memiliki kadar hormon stimulasi folikel dan kadar hormon luteinizing yang lebih rendah. Keduanya merupakan indikator dari fungsi testis yang lebih baik.

Penelitian yang diunggah oleh Journal of American Medical Association Network Open mengatakan bahwa para ilmuwan tidak menemukan efek di antara pria yang mengonsumsi suplemen selain minyak ikan.

"Ini harus dikonfirmasi dalam penelitian lain. Namun, kita disini menemukan bahwa pria muda sehat yang mengonsumsi suplemen minyak ikan memiliki jumlah sperma yang lebih baik," kata Tina Kold Jensen, penulis utama dari Copenhagen University Hospital.

Minyak ikan merupakan sumber makanan asam lemak omega-3, yaitu zat yang dibutuhkan oleh tubuh manusia untuk berbagai fungsi, seperti aktivitas otot hingga pertumbuhan sel.

Asam lemak omega-3 berasal dari makanan. Mereka tidak dapat diproduksi di dalam tubuh. Minyak ikan mengandung dua omega-3 yang disebut docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) dan eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Sumber makanan DHA dan EPA adalah ikan berlemak, seperti salmon, makarel, trout, kerang, dan kepiting.

Beberapa kacang-kacangan, biji-abijian, dan minyak nabati mengandung omega-3 lain yang disebut alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).

    Geri Boxer, 78 Taylor Thu, 01/16/2020 - 09:39

    Nov. 13, 1941- Jan. 9, 2020

    Geraldine Boxer died at home in East Hampton last Thursday after receiving an unexpected diagnosis of Stage 4 esophageal cancer in mid-December. Rather than treatment, “she chose to spend her brief remaining time with her beloved spouse of 40 years, Ida Jennings, and their new rescue kitten, Charlie,” her friend Lys Marigold wrote. 

    Known as Geri, she was “a woman of abundant optimism and warmth,” her friend said, and “struck up conversations with everyone she met, making new friends based on a lifetime of laughter, keen observations, and compelling stories of past experiences.”

    In the late 1960s and 1970s, Ms. Boxer was an account executive at the Smith-Greenland Agency in Manhattan, a small but well-regarded firm where she stood out for “her unique talent of handling both the business and creative sides” of the work. “It was the ‘Mad Men’ era, and Geri held court daily at the Copenhagen restaurant during the obligatory three-martini lunches,” Ms. Marigold wrote. 

    When one of her largest accounts, Kaufman Carpets, persuaded her to open her own agency, she left Madison Avenue to embark on a successful venture that lasted until 1988. 

    But Ms. Boxer ultimately preferred “entrepreneurship over corporate hierarchy,” her friend said, and she teamed up with Ms. Jennings to open the Boxer Collection, a showroom at 225 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan that sold stylish lines of home accessories to gift stores and interior design firms. 

    The couple retired in 2006 and moved full time to a house in East Hampton that they had bought as a weekend retreat in 1973. Ms. Boxer joined the Ladies Village Improvement Society of East Hampton in 1991. She “enjoyed working at each and every fair, as well as being a Saturday volunteer at Bargain Books, where you could hear her gravelly chuckle resonate through the first floor,” Ms. Marigold wrote.

    “Geri was a social gamester, whether it was at her recent bridge sessions at the senior center or on their many visits to St. Barts in the Caribbean or her endless fascination online with the Scrabble-like Words With Friends,” Ms. Marigold said. 

    “If we had to choose one word that best describes Geri’s spirit, it would be ‘intrepid’ [for] never giving up or folding when life becomes tough. When she could no longer count on her legs for reliability, Geri had a car outfitted with hand brakes and pedals, giving her mobility and independence.”

    Ms. Jennings said that her spouse “never complained, was never depressed for even a moment in a life that was never-endingly upbeat and happy.” 

    Ms. Boxer was born on Nov. 13, 1941, in New York City to Ethel Berman and Abraham Boxer and moved to Brooklyn and Queens. She graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey.  

    The Rev. Leandra Lambert, associate rector at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in East Hampton, will officiate at a funeral service on Sunday at 2 p.m. at the church, immediately followed by burial of ashes in St. Luke’s Memorial Garden. 

    Contributions have been suggested to East End Hospice, P.O. Box 1048, Westhampton Beach 11978, or to Last Chance Animal Rescue, P.O. Box 1661, Southampton 11969.
