'From Mozart to Villa-Lobos and South African pop, Dodd brings out Walker's gift for illumination; best of all, these conversations have you searching out new-found fare as well as hearing familiar and forgotten music anew'. -- William Dart 'A wide-ranging and catholic view of the music-listening experience for our time - Walker is an ideally active listener, with Dodd an equally ideal interlocutor'. -- Martin Lodge Born and educated in Scotland, Marshall Walker lectured in English and American literature at Glasgow University from 1965 to 1980 after a spell at Rhodes University in South Africa. From 1981 until 2006 he was Professor of English at the University of Waikato in New Zealand. As Dean of Humanities he initiated and oversaw the establishment of Music at the University. An occasional broadcaster on music and literature, he introduced, for Radio New Zealand and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, concerts of the 2005 Sydney Sibelius Festival in which Sibelius's symphonies were performed by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy. He lives in Hamilton, New Zealand, with his wife, the Brazilian writer, Cláudia Pacce. Senior Music Producer for Radio New Zealand Concert, Tim Dodd was born and raised in Dunedin, New Zealand. His degree is in Physics but his primary passion was always for music. He landed his dream job at Radio New Zealand in 1990 and he's been there ever since, overseeing the broadcast and recording of live concerts and producing countless spoken features about music. Included among these are many interviews he has conducted with New Zealand and international musicians such as the pianist and writer Charles Rosen, violinists Shlomo Mintz and James Ehnes, American composer Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, cellist Raphael Wallfisch, jazz bass player Dave Holland and Brazilian guitarist and composer Egberto Gismonti. He lives in Auckland, New Zealand, with his wife and children. For over twenty years the two friends have been talking to each other about music. Tim Dodd produced Walker's award-winning Letters to Sibelius for Radio New Zealand Concert, the programmes reaching listeners in Australia and Scotland as well as New Zealand and forming the basis of Walker's book, Dear Sibelius: Letter from a Junky published by Kennedy and Boyd in 2008. The Music for Life conversations that followed were broadcast by Radio New Zealand in December 2009, but the talk went on. This book presents the ongoing conversations in the hope that readers will like to join in.

Buon Giorno Le Marche

Buon Giorno Le Marche was inspired by a number of events that took place in 2011. After a 2010 tour to the Abruzzo region of Italy where my grandfather originates from, I performed a number of concerts in the summer of 2011 with Italian bassist Gabriele Pesaresi who originates from Le Marche. Gabriele is one of Italy’s greatest bass players and a most beautiful person. Gabriele can play in any musical context setting, which reflects his outstanding musicianship. The bass line was written with him in mind and for him. The melody was inspired by Italy’s rich operatic canzone history. The starting note (Ab) of the bass and melody reflects the rich tenor range of the voice. On the saxophone, the low Bb has a richness to it that invokes the whole body when playing it. As an artist for Rampone & Cazzani, I find the sound and richness of the low Bb to be unlike any other saxophone I have experienced, and believe Rampone & Cazzani saxophones reflect the true Italian voice. I was introduced to Claudio Zolla of Rampone & Cazzani in 2005 by my dear friend Dennis Tini (Wayne State University). Claudio Zolla and his wonderful family are dedicated to making some of the best hand-made saxophones in the world. The region of Le Marche is a fascinating area of Italy. Just north of Abruzzo and along the Adriatic, it is one of Italy’s best kept secrets when one thinks of the great treasures Italy has to offer. The piece has a melancholic feel to it that reflects the dual meaning of Buon Giorno, which in Italian can mean hello and goodbye. For my wife Diane and I, we were happy to see and experience this part of Italy, but also sad to leave. This piece is rich with harmonic challenges that support the melody which should be played in a relaxed and legato manner. The rhythm section can play in a floating manner off the bass line as an anchor with the drummer playing an ’Elvin Jones’ big three feel. Pay special attention to the dynamics as stated. The tutti/solo section is used as material for improvisation in addition to working well as a tutti line to play after the last solo. This piece is dedicated to my dear friends Gabriele Pesaresi and Claudio Zolla, and to the people of Le Marche, Italy. Buon Giorno Le Marche is part of an Italian Suite published by Advance Music that also includes Arrivo in Abruzzo and Scungilli. Instrumentation: 3 melody instruments, rhythm section
