Cool Classical Musician/Composer Tshirts and Gifts

August 3, 2010

I was surfing the web I found some really cool tshirts of Classical Musician/Composers.

This tshirt is for any Mozart lover. I think it is really neat because it has a picture of his piano.

Artaria and company was founded by the eponymous Carlo Artaria in 1765 in Vienna, then the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Originally a specialty publisher of maps, the company had expanded its business to include music by the mid 1770s. Its most important early collaboration was with the Austrian composer Joseph Haydn, who published more than 300 works through Artaria, including many of the composer’s string quartets (such as the Opus 33), which were a popular seller. The value of Haydn’s works helped push Artaria to the top of the music publishing world in the late 18th century.

This important relationship helped Artaria secure the rights to the works of other important classical composers such as Luigi Boccherini and, most notably, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

During his lifetime, Artaria was Mozart’s principal publisher, although after his death this passed to the German house of Breitkopf & Härtel. Artaria also published several early works of Ludwig van Beethoven, until a bitter dispute in 1801/02 over the publishing rights of Beethoven’s String Quintet Op. 29 which culminated in a court case ended further collaboration.

The dispute with Beethoven highlights the role the company played in helping determine early copyright laws. Voluminous correspondence is extant between Artaria and its clients regarding ownership and royalty of editions as well as piracy concerns.

Artaria continued to be a leading publisher through the 19th century, until it finally ceased its music publication business in the twentieth century. (content from Wikipedia)

Wolfgang Schmieder assigned the BWV numbers in 1950, to indicate the work’s placement in the Bach works catalogue titled Thematisch-systematisches Verzeichnis der musikalischen Werke von Johann Sebastian Bach (Thematic-systematic catalogue of musical works of Johann Sebastian Bach). The BWV numbers are universally used and accepted as the standard numbering of Bach’s works; for example, Mass in B minor is BWV 232. Works believed incomplete or of doubtful authenticity at the time of cataloguing were listed in the BWV Anhang (BWV appendix), and are identified by BWV Anh number. The BWV catalogue is occasionally updated, with newly discovered works added at its end, though spurious works do not have their numbers removed.

This tshirt is truely for any Bach lover.

PETA wishes Obama hadn’t swatted that fly

June 21, 2009

WASHINGTON (AP) — The group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants the flyswatter in chief to try taking a more humane attitude the next time he’s bedeviled by a fly in the White House.

PETA is sending President Barack Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside.

“We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals,” PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. “We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals.”

During an interview for CNBC at the White House on Tuesday, a fly intruded on Obama’s conversation with correspondent John Harwood.

“Get out of here,” the president told the pesky insect. When it didn’t, he waited for the fly to settle, put his hand up and then smacked it dead.

“Now, where were we?” Obama asked Harwood. Then he added: “That was pretty impressive, wasn’t it? I got the sucker.”

Friedrich said that PETA was pleased with Obama’s voting record in the Senate on behalf of animal rights and noted that he has been outspoken against animal abuses.

Still, “swatting a fly on TV indicates he’s not perfect,” Friedrich said, “and we’re happy to say that we wish he hadn’t.”

Deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said the White House has no comment on the matter.

Caroline Kennedy for Senate T-shirts!

December 18, 2008

The rumor is flying that Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg is interested in the Senate seat being vacated by Hillary Clinton. Senator Clinton will be the new Secretary of State in Barack Obama’s administration, which will leave her seat open for appointment by the current Governor, a Democrat. Names being mentioned include Andrew Cuomo and Caroline Kennedy. We think Caroline would be a wonderful representative for New Yorkers. She’s a near lifelong resident of the state, she’s smart (I’ve actually read two of her books on the Constitution), she’s well-connected, she’s on the correct side of the issues, and her family is mostly grown.

Show your support for Caroline kennedy? Wear a t-shirt of course! Here are some Caroline Kennedy for Senate t-shirts available right now on the web. In time for Christmas, even!
