Child Prodigy and old Master : Lorin Maazel
One of the world's foremost conductors spoke seven languages. A violinist and composer, a painter by hobby, his gifts also included perfect pitch and a photographic memory which enabled him to conduct most scores from memory. It's said that after maestro Arturo Toscanini invited Lorin Maazel to lead the NBC Symphony Orchestra at age 11, its musicians greeted the Wunderkind at the first rehearsal with lollipops in their mouths. They - and the world - soon learned to take him seriously... More on Deutsche Welle
To Stay Focused, Listen to Mozart
New research from Japan finds listening to a Mozart minuet helps people ignore extraneous information. Score another one for Wolfgang Amadeus. Researchers report the soothing sounds of a Mozart minuet boosts the ability of children and seniors to focus on a task and ignore extraneous information.
Dissonant music has the opposite effect, according to Nobuo Masataka of Japan’s Kyoto University and Leonard Perlovsky of Harvard University. Their findings help make the case that music, sometimes thought of as a pleasant byproduct of evolution, has in fact played an active role in human development... More on Pacific Standard
The universal language: Using music in the classroom
Victor Hugo said, "Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent." It is part of our collective unconscious. It transcends race, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic class and is experienced by everyone.

Lorin Maazel (1930 - 2014)
The conductor and music director of orchestras in Europe and the United States died after complications following pneumonia
Lorin Maazel one of the most high-achieving and highly paid orchestral conductors of the past half-century, died on Sunday at his home in Virginia in the United States, after suffering complications from pneumonia. He was 84.
Maazel was music director of a gallery of top orchestras in Europe and the United States – including Cleveland, Paris and Munich – for more than 40 years, and had been chief conductor of opera houses in West Berlin and Vienna too. His last major post was as music director of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra from 2001- 2009, during which he led the orchestra on a controversial and ground breaking visit to Pyongyang, North Korea.
In Britain his principal connections were with the Philharmonia Orchestra, of which he was an associate principal conductor from 1971. Maazel continued to conduct the Philharmonia until the end of his life. His last concerts with the orchestra were in London in March. The orchestra tweeted last night that it was "devastated" by the news of Maazel's death. More on The Guardian
