Listen to 'The Island'
by William Russo, words by Adrian Michell, with Cleo Lane and
Dennis Quilley, played by the Russo orchestra, leader Leon Calvert. This
is a jazz opera written for radio at around the time of the expulsion
of the Diego Garcia islanders to make way for a US airbase as described
in an article by John Pilger. It combines the resources of a chamber orchestra
and a big band. It contrasts the superficialities of US popular culture
with the simplicity of the islanders. It was recorded from the radio but
the quality is sufficient to convey the beauty and power of the music
and the tragedy of the story. I have put it here because it is unavailable
elsewhere. I think the political message is still too strong to re-broadcast
Printing music off theWeb pages:
The music on the website is mostly in the form of gif images
which are essentially photo's (like jpg or mov which are other formats
You can print out the web page as you see it if you click
on 'File' on the menu at the top of the web page and then choose 'Print':
However, if you only want to print the music and not the
headings or the words, you can get the music only by clicking on the image
of the printed sheet of music: just hover the mouse anywhere over the
music score and left-click i.e. a normal click.
Some of the web-pages have links to special pages for single
pages of music but these will have the headers and links at the bottom
Many web sites use pdf files which has the advantage that noone can change the settings but lacks the flexibility of being able to use an image of the music score in whatever way one likes including putting it in word docs or resizing it.
GIF's are an old image format (1987) mainly for text that
was superceded by jpeg or jpg which came along for photo's.
