In a recent year not specified here, Schwartz Brain Lock , an associate research professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, was asked by a single mother to correspond with her son, Patrick Buckley, at boarding school in order to give the boy the benefit of the influence of a "successful adult male. Letters, mostly brief, from the boy, Patrick, are surrounded by Schwartz's letters to the boy, presenting lessons derived from the older man's study of psychiatry and religion mostly Christianity and Buddhism , with a bit of poetry Yeats and Eliot and Western philosophy Heraclitus, Hume, Adam Smith included.
The author offers some valuable instruction in brain structure and function in Buddhist philosophies and practices such as meditation and the watching of thoughts "making mental notes" and in such universal truths as that "actions have consequences.
Schwartz offers a sound blueprint for helping teens grow into thoughtful adults who are able to make sound moral judgments, but he nearly buries that blueprint beneath his opinionating. Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc. Parents seeking language to explain traditional morality, teens seeking a way out of the ugly, hopeless world created by their elders, Christians interested in the moral technology though not the theology Buddhism and modern science provide should look up this thoughtful guide.

On the verge of a new millennium, in an age of unprecedented affluence, personal freedom and scientific power, millions of us--young and not so young--find ourselves emotionally and morally adrift.
Even as our mastery of the material world reaches new heights almost daily, mastery of the inner world--of our own actions, emotions, and deepest hopes--often tragically eludes our grasp. As families come apart, adults become bitter and emotionally detached. Children fall prey to a "culture" of sex and drugs, cynical materialism, and self-destructive nihilism.
It increasingly seems that, in the piercing words of Jesus, we have "gained the whole world, and lost our own souls. Read more Read less. Add all three to Cart Add all three to List.

I have heard various descriptions of this magnificent work but the best to date is "An American Gurrelieder" Bolcolm's musical language encompasses nearly every style of music - even some seemingly jarring genres one would never expect to coexist - yet they are seamlessly blended into what sounds like a natural whole.

This is a remarkable achievement and it is a shame that so massive and important a work remains somewhat neglected. Kudos to Naxos for helping remedy "Songs" neglect by releasing this live and glorious performance out on their American Classics series. With hundreds of musicians involved, all under the watchful and loving baton of Leonard Slatkin the combined forces deliver a performance for the ages. It is "okay" to listen to the discs or portions of the work individually, but to experience the entire thing in a single sitting - well the experience is an overwhelming one.
This should definitely get a nod for "Record of the Year" as it is one of the most remarkable achievements in modern American music history. It's remarkable that a work written in the s that incorporated aesthetics gleaned from the world of popular music in some of the song settings doesn't sound dated today.
Bolcom apparently had been wise to focus on the elements geared to "illuminating" the Blake poems, such that the fit with the text trumped the stylistic clothing time after time. On the other hand, the elevation of Blake's principle of contrariety to an organizational schema for the poems AND musical styles gives one pause, if only out of philosophical fairness.
I can think of only two other works that exhibit such stylistic dislocations and extreme contrasts: Zappa would never have invoked the name of Blake to justify the bizarre juxtapositions in Lumpy Gravy. Why not simply say that form followed function on a per-song basis in this case, rather than to claim that Blake's arrangement of the poems is the secret key to why this large work enfolds as it does.
Is there a massive macro structure? Maybe, but it's more likely that Blake is laughing at the emperor's new clothes that were sanctimoniously thrown over his proposed sequencing of the poems. The performance is astonishing, as befits the massed forces required to do this work justice.
The songs have superficial affinities to other music. One moment you'll be thinking, "this sounds like Fancy from Holst's Choral Symphony," the next you'll think it's an echo of John Rutter, then searing Humphrey Searle brass declamations followed by pseudo-Mahlerian children's choirs and a sequence that sounds like it might have appeared in a Hindemith opera. A couple of numbers anticipate 21st century Broadway numbers, without ever deteriorating into a copy of Bernstein's Mass the similarities are superficial rather than substantive, as noted earlier.
There's something here for everybody, which ironically means there's the possibility there's something here to alienate everybody as well. When you're all over the map, you'll have your advocates and detractors regardless how well you attempt to justify the master plan. Bolcom correctly notes that this was a labor of love, and not a commissioned piece.
One can tell that it was a labor of love, and it should be appreciated for what it is, and not derided for what it is not, nor could ever be. There'll always be the wag who'll propose to edit out the dissonant, disjunct parts to build a "better" piece of music more palatable to mass audiences not interested in having the consonant songs punctuated by some of the heaviest blocks of low-brass chords ever recorded.
For people who think Parry was the last word on setting Blake to music, this recording should be a revelation -- either of their shallow unwillingness to "use their ears like a man" Ives , or, one would hope, of a very personal vision of the breadth and scope of Blake's ideas brought to life in the world of sound. Like the other reviewers, I found this composition, and this recording, to be superb: The other reviews are quite helpful, but since they all sound as if written by academics, I want to add that this work is accessible and moving for a wider audience as well.
Even without background in the poems, any careful listener would find this piece rewarding, although it is most certain to draw you into the stunning poetic work of Blake as well. See all 27 reviews.
