' EDITORIAL Kaleidoscopes and other reflections I've got kaleidoscopes on the brain a bit at the moment. Partly it's because there's a concert called Kaleidoscope in town this month, well Spiritual Kaleidoscope, actually, by Proteus World Music. (Karen Ages talks a bit about it in her World View column on page 36.) Partly it's because I often find myself, at this very last possible moment before the magazine goes to the printer, scrambling for something to say about the patterns that I have noticed as the issue came together, some of them much more interesting than anything we could have planned. One thing I really hope you will give time to is this month's Composer to Composer interview with Denys Bouliane. "W hen talking about music we must accept that it [talking] is a bit trivial, but it can also make us understand what's behind a piece" says Bouliane, and then goes on to make this reader at least want to hear the music even more after hearing it talked about - no mean feat. I also want to call your attention to the Summer Education feature commenci"ng on page 38. It's the first of a string of increasingly ambitious "Specials" that characterize the magazine in the spring and is certainly one way of chasing the winter blues. (For a list of April, May, June and July special features, please ee page 29. Also, if you're wondering where Music's Children and How I met my teacher have gone, fear not, they've just been bumped to pages 63-65 by "Summer Ed".) I also hope you'll give a serious look at the upcoming WholeNote Monday Salon (ad on page 45). Last month's "Early Music" event was, well, kaleidoscopic, in the way the various pieces, by six different ensembles, brought a three-hundred year period, predating what we call classical music, wonderfully to life. March 7's event, curated by Colin Eatock, promises in a different way to bring what one might usually think of as four totally unrelated kinds of music into striking juxtaposition. When the dust settles on any issue of the magazine, all the articles and columns in and edited, there's always a moment of frustration at the events that didn't get their due, in terms of editorial coverage. This, dear reader. is where your own kaleidoscope comes in. Just as no two people hear a concert the same way, so too you as reader will piece together from the fragments of information in the magazine, a patterned view of your own most pleasing musical month. Returning to Proteus World Music and its founder/conductor Charles Demuynck: They've travelled a lot of ground, literally and figuratively, in this, their first concert eason - from bringing African-American pianist Awadagin Pratt to the Glenn Gould last fall, to a South Indian Fusion concert up at York University's Burton Auditorium, to this month's finale, at Trinity St. Paul's on March 23. "It's been a calculated risk," Charles said, when we talked. "Do you set up shop somewhere and hope people will come to you. Or do you seek out the city's communities one by one and then try to bring them along with you on the journey." . For this former resident of Dawson Creek, nine years of teaching music at Louisiana State were enough to tell him he wanted to take the plunge into bringing new live music into being. "Spiritual Kaleidoscope" speaks to the structure of this final concert, with its interweaving of a variety of faith-based music, its explorations of consonances and dissonances from one kind of music to another. But it also speaks to his sense of what this city, with all its diversity is. It's one concert this month that will be on my personal list and one concert series I hope remains part of the picture.
