Barton Swaim, a onetime speechwriter, now a cultural columnist for The Weekly Standard, chronicles his difficult reconciliation with the symphonies of Gustav Mahler – finding, among other things, that Old Testament stories may be more helpful than psychoanalysis in developing an appreciation:

L. Wayne Batty, the longtime voice professor at Virginia Commonwealth University and impresario of hundreds of productions of opera and musical theater in Richmond since the 1950s, has died at 94.

Perhaps most widely known for staging Christmas-season performances of Gian
Carlo Menotti’s “Amahl
and the Night Visitors” at the Altria Theater, Batty was the teacher and mentor of generations of singers in Richmond and well beyond. His best-known student, tenor Thomas Moser, became a major figure in opera in Europe, singing on the roster of the Vienna State Opera and with other major companies.

Staging locally produced opera, often in tandem with his wife, Mary Jane Ellis Batty, with the Richmond Opera Company and in Festival of Arts productions at Dogwood Dell, Batty devoted special attention to contemporary American scores. He led one of the first performances of Samuel Barber’s “Vanessa” following its premiere in 1958 at New York’s Metropolitan Opera.

(In 2002, Batty accompanied me to a Washington National Opera revival of “Vanessa,” with Kiri Te Kanawa in the title role and Rosalind Elias, who portrayed Erika in the original production, as the Old Countess. Attending that performance, I missed the biggest news story to come of Ashland during the 27 years I lived there – the southernmost attack in the killing spree of the Washington snipers. The musical lore that Batty recounted during the trip more than compensated for my missing the big story.)

After singing with the World War II-era Army Air Corps Stage Band led by Henry Mancini and completing musical studies, Batty joined the faculty of what was then Richmond Professional Institute in 1949, and subsequently served for 12 years as chairman of the school’s music department. When he retired in 2007 after 58 years, he was both the longest-serving VCU professor and the longest-serving state employee.

Classical music in Richmond often puts patrons through juggling acts: Which among several options to choose in a given week or
weekend?

Each year, compiling and posting a preview of the classical season, I inevitably find conflicts in performance scheduling.

The 2016-17 season starts with a conflict that really takes the cake.

On the weekend of Sept. 16-18, there will be
eight concerts in three days: the Dover Quartet in the opening of Virginia Commonwealth University’s Rennolds Chamber Concerts series, the first concerts of the Chamber Music Society of Central Virginia’s season, pianist Alexander Paley’s three-day fall festival at St. Luke Lutheran Church, a Chester Village concert by the Richmond Symphony under its “big tent” outdoor concert stage, and singer Ute Gfrerer and pianist Adam Turner, previewing Virginia Opera’s forthcoming production of Kurt Weill’s “The Seven Deadly Sins” with a cabaret program at Dominion Arts Center.

It is physically possible to attend four of these performances. I’m planning to attend three. Non-gluttonous music-lovers presumably will opt for one or two.

Aside from the symphony’s pops concert, all of the above all chamber-music events, staged in small venues; so, conceivably, there are enough interested listeners to go around.

That’s assuming the classical crowd examines programs (which I’ve posted in the September calendar); sees, for example, that on Sept. 18 the Chamber Music Society is presenting an all-Schubert program at Second Presbyterian Church, while Paley and friends are playing Mozart and Zemlinsky at St. Luke; makes its choices and neatly cleaves into respectable turnouts for each concert.

Sept. 16-18 is one of three significant weekend clusters of performances this season. The other two:

– Virginia Opera’s season-opening double-bill of “The Seven Deadly Sins” and Leoncavallo’s “Pagliacci,” Oct. 14 and 16 at Dominion Arts Center; the Parker Quartet with violist Kim Kashkashian, Oct. 15 at VCU; the first of the Richmond Symphony’s Metro Collection chamber-orchestra concerts, Oct. 16 at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland; and the Sphinx Virtuosi and Catalyst Quartet, Oct. 16 in the first ticketed classical concert of the season at the University of Richmond’s Modlin Arts Center.

– Virginia Opera’s “The Magic Marksman” (its English translation of Weber’s “Der Freischütz”), Feb. 17 and 19 at Dominion Arts Center; organist David Goode, in the Repertoire Recital Series of the Richmond chapter of the American Guild of Organists, Feb. 17 at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church; the Montrose Trio, Feb. 18 at VCU; the symphony with its principal timpanist, Jim Jacobson, Feb. 19 at Randolph-Macon; the Shanghai Quartet with pipa (Chinese lute) player Wu Man, Feb. 19 at UR. (On the 19th, the symphony and opera perform in the afternoon, the Shanghai and Wu Man in the evening.)

Presenters’ excuses for such pileups: Touring artists and locals with multiple professional commitments couldn’t be engaged on other dates. . . . We don’t think there will be much audience overlap with other events. . . . We have to schedule on weekends because that’s what our audience expects.

However it’s rationalized, clustering events disserves performers and their audiences. It depresses turnout for an art form that struggles to draw a crowd under optimal circumstances. And listeners don’t get time to digest what they hear in one program before hearing the next.

OK, enough ranting.

Here’s a thumbnail listing of major events in Richmond’s 2016-17 classical season. I’ll add to the list as more dates are announced. Details will be posted in each month’s calendars.
