May's La Scena Musicale puts the accent on jazz with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra and Canadian jazz, world and folk festivals!

(Version franł▀aise)

La Scena Musicale's next issue invites you to take a closer look at the past, present and future of jazz. Paul Serralheiro investigates the history of the big band with Ted Nash, a prominent member of Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra; led by artistic director Wynton Marsalis, the orchestra is a world-class ensemble that has remained faithful to the roots and tradition of the idiom. During Mr. Nash's tenure with this group, he has become one of its most crucial members as a composer, an arranger and a remarkably virtuosic saxophonist. LSM jazz editor Marc Chłęnard will explore the more contemporary possibilities afforded by a jazz orchestra, as its sonic possibilities today have stretched almost into the realm of a ĺ─˙classicalĺ─¨ contemporary music ensemble. With all this terminology being tossed around, we should ask the question: is it a ĺ─˙big bandĺ─¨ or a ĺ─˙jazz orchestraĺ─¨? We'll fill you in on that as well. As May unfolds, we begin to anticipate the hot summer months ahead, which of course means a wide variety of festivals from which to choose! In keeping with the focus on jazz this month, Marc Chłęnard will bring you his picks for jazz festivals happening across the country this summer.

LSM prides itself on its leading role in promoting festivals and, in addition to jazz, this month's festival guides will cover summer festivals of world and folk music. May will also feature a guide to subscriptions for the 2008-09 season. Keep an eye out for our summer classical festival guide in June. For more information on these guides, please consult:

We have invited some of Canada's most esteemed conductors to share their thoughts on the legacy of Herbert von Karajan for the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth this year. His association with the Berlin Philharmonic and his achievements as a recording artist (he is still, to this day, the top-selling classical recording artist in history) are staggering. Still, his political ties to the Nazi party early on in his career have raised some eyebrows and sparked a debate on this matter. We will begin a new in-depth series on Puccini this month; keep your eyes open for reviews, features, and more.

Stay tuned as well for a look at the piano in time with the Montreal International Musical Competition, which features pianists this year. As always, you can check out our reviews of the latest CD and DVD releases and leaf through our extensive May regional music calendar.
