Sample text

God bless Harold Arlen! The next morning we presented ourselves at Mr. Wiman’s office to be told that Mr. Wiman had gone unexpectedly to the Middle West. So we turned around and came back to Rochester. Much later we found out that Mr. Wiman’s assistant had planned to listen to us, but obviously the news had not reached the receptionist. Okay, ask me! Why didn’t we go back? Why weren’t new appointments made through Leopold Mannes’s good offices? I haven’t the faintest notion, nor have I ever been able to figure out any reasonable explanation.

17 a l e c w i l d e r | Breakthroughs 18 The Alec Wilder Octet Alec Wilder’s first big impact on the music of his time, a series of short pieces with unusual instrumentation that he wrote between 1938 and 1940, came about through the support and persistence of his Eastman friend Mitchell Miller. In the 1930s, Miller was one of the premiere oboists in New York. ”1 Miller played oboe in the Mannes Concerts at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in orchestras led by Fritz Reiner and Andre Kostelanetz, and in the pit orchestra for the first run of Porgy and Bess (1935).

Wilder explains: “Arranging, after all, is a euphemism, for it includes composition as well as orchestration. The introductions, countermelodies, transitions, reharmonizing are all more than just orchestration. But by using the word ‘arrangement’ they get two skills for the price of one” (Letters I Never Mailed, 102). A pop arranger’s primary mission is to preserve a song’s melody and lyric. Everything else is open to creative manipulation. The arranger has substantive control over the way the song is presented and received, even over elements such as chord changes that were likely integral to the songwriter’s original conception.
