Saxhorn

The saxhorn is a family of valved brass instruments that have conical bores and deep cup-shaped mouthpieces. The saxhorn family was developed by Adolphe Sax, known for creating the saxophone family; the sound of the saxhorn has a characteristic mellow blends well with other brass. The saxhorns form a family of seven brass instruments. Designed for band use, they are pitched alternately like the saxophone group. Modern saxhorns still manufactured and in use: B♭ soprano saxhorn: flugelhorn E♭ alto/tenor saxhorn: alto/tenor horn B♭ baritone saxhorn: baritone horn The B♭ bass, E♭ bass, B♭ contrabass saxhorns are the same as the modern euphonium, E♭ bass tuba, BB♭ contrabass tuba, respectively. Much confusion exists as to the nomenclature of the various instruments in different languages; the following table lists the members of the saxhorn family as described in the orchestration texts of Hector Berlioz and Cecil Forsyth, the J. Howard Foote catalog of 1893, modern names; the modern instrument names continue to exhibit inconsistency, denoted by a "/" between the two names in use.

In the table "Pitch" means the concert pitch of notational Middle C on each instrument in scientific pitch notation. This list is not exhaustive of historic nomenclature for the saxhorns, for which there may exist no comprehensive and authoritative source; the saxhorn is based on the same three-valve system as most other valved brass instruments. Each member of the family is named after the root note produced by the second partial with no valves actuated; each member nominally possesses or possessed the typical three-valve brass range from the note one tritone below that root note to the note produced by eighth partial with no valves actuated, i.e. the note two octaves above the root note. All the modern members of the family are transposing instruments written in the treble clef with the root note produced by the second partial with no valves actuated being written as middle C, though the baritone horn plays bass clef parts in concert band music and when playing parts written for the trombone.

Developed during the mid-to-late 1830s, the saxhorn family was patented in Paris in 1845 by Adolphe Sax. During the 19th century, the debate as to whether the saxhorn family was new, or rather a development of existing instruments, was the subject of prolonged lawsuits. Throughout the mid-1850s, Sax continued to experiment with the instrument's valve pattern; the Trojan March of the Berlioz opera Les Troyens features an on-stage band which includes a family of saxhorns. Saxhorns were popularized by the distinguished Distin Quintet, who toured Europe during the mid-19th century; this family of musicians and instrument manufacturers had a significant impact on the growth of the brass band movement in Britain during the mid- to late-19th century. The saxhorn was the most common brass instrument in American Civil War bands; the over-the-shoulder variety of the instrument was used, as the backward-pointing bell of the instrument allowed troops marching behind the band to hear the music. Contemporary works featuring this instrument are Désiré Dondeyne's "Tubissimo" for bass tuba or saxhorn and piano and Olivier Messiaen's "Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum".

ABBA: The Tour

ABBA: The Tour also labelled ABBA in Concert and ABBA: North American and European Tour 1979, was the third and final concert tour by the Swedish pop group, ABBA. Visiting North America and Asia during 1979–1980, the tour supported the group's sixth studio album, Voulez-Vous; the tour opened in Edmonton, Canada, on September 13, 1979, closed in Tokyo, Japan on March 27, 1980, having performed 52 shows in 40 cities across 13 countries. As it was the group's final tour before unofficially disbanding in late 1982, it included the largest catalogue of hit songs performed on a tour. Since forming in 1972, the group had only performed sporadically over eight years. For many years, the group had refused to tour in the USA because they wanted to be the headliner and not the opening act. Pressured to tour by their record company, the group had performed a brief tour in Europe and Australia in the summer of 1977. Upon the release of their sixth album, the group decided to tour North America for one month.

Benny Andersson stated that the decision to tour was based on the need for the group to become more "present" to North American audiences. He further felt. In January 1979, ABBA performed alongside the Bee Gees, John Denver and Earth, Wind & Fire at the "A Gift of Song—Music for UNICEF Concert" at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City; the concert benefited the United Nations Children's Fund. Shortly after, it was revealed that members Björn Ulvaeus and Agnetha Fältskog had been separated for several months. Despite this, Agnetha assured the media that the group was united, stating, "Everyone feels good at the moment. We are working well together and we still have something to give"; the tour was announced by WEA in May 1979, beginning in Canada and the United States before venturing into Europe. While promoting the album, the quartet began rehearsals for the tour in June 1979 at the Stockholm Concert Hall in Stockholm, Sweden. Agnetha and Anni-Frid began taking private vocal lessons while Björn organized the tour.

In the United States, the tour was promoted by various media outlets including Billboard magazine, where a 50-page mini-magazine about ABBA was included in its September 8, 1979, issue. The magazine provided a history of the group as well as outlining their success in over 40 countries worldwide, it provided details of the upcoming tour, as well as personal interviews with each member of the quartet. During one of the interviews and Ulvaeus remarked how important the tour was to the group touring in new territory, they stated:"To us, the U. S. is a challenge. The whole tour to us is a great challenge. Tonight, the audience was great and everything went smoothly, but it was a strange feeling when we have not toured in 2 1/2 years. You don't have the self confidence that most artists have that tour a lot and you don't know until you're up there, until you meet the audience face-to-face, whether it's going to work or not…" Nevertheless, the last scheduled ABBA concert in the United States in Washington, D.

C. on October 4, was cancelled due to Fältskog's emotional distress suffered during the flight from New York to Boston, when the group's private plane was subjected to extreme weather conditions and was unable to land for an extended period. Rehearsals of the tour continued when ABBA made a surprise appearance at a nightclub in Stockholm as a sneak peek for the upcoming tour. Andersson felt they needed to do this in order to build the self-confidence required to perform onstage in front of large audiences; the group returned to rehearsals in August 1979 after promotions in the United States and Mexico ended. While rehearsing at the Europafilm Studios in Sundbyberg and Ulvaeus needed to produce a song to help promote the tour. Together, they wrote Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!. The staging for the tour was a standard endstage with a blue backdrop with several triangular structures, resembling icebergs, it was on this tour that Fältskog and Lyngstad wore the iconic blue and violet jumpsuits. The suits were recreated by Madonna on her Confessions Tour as a tribute to the band.

As the group toured the United States, their film ABBA: The Movie was shown in the city after each concert. Despite critical acclaim, the band would never tour again. Lyngstad stated that she felt secure onstage whereas Fältskog felt more comfortable in the recording studio; the group disliked the conditions of traveling for the tour, with one plane trip, traumatic for Fältskog. Their reactions to touring would be penned in the song Super Trouper. Many fans speculated the song was a long letter written to Ulvaeus' new lover—shown in the lines: "I was sick and tired of everything // When I called you last night from Glasgow // All I do is eat and sleep and sing // Wishing every show was the last show"; however the song shifts viewpoint in the lines: "Facing 20,000 of your friends // How can anyone be so lonely // Part of a success that never ends // Still I'm thinking about you only". Though ABBA members continue their musical careers as solo artists, they have not regrouped as ABBA for a concert tour.

The 1979 tour is considered to be a classic among ABBA fans. "Gammal Fäbodpsalm" "Voulez-Vous" "If It Wasn't for the Nights" "As Good as New" "Knowing Me, Knowing You" "Rock Me" "Not Bad at All" "Chiquitita" "Money, Money" "I Have a Dream" "Gimme! Gimme!

Next (Journey album)

Next is the third studio album by Journey, released in 1977. The band continued the formula from 1976's Look into the Future but this album retains some of their jazzy progressive rock style from the first album, it is the last album to feature Gregg Rolie on lead vocals. "Spaceman" and "Nickel and Dime" were the two singles released from Next. The instrumental "Cookie Duster" was listed in early pressings of the album, though not included on the album, it was released on Journey's Time³ compilation. Next reached #85 on the Billboard 200 Albums charts. Although he did not contribute to Next, lead vocalist Robert Fleischman joined Journey shortly after the album's release as a songwriter and the group's first dedicated frontman, sharing lead vocal duties with Rolie during subsequent live shows. All of the songs on the album vanished from the band's live setlist after 1979 and two have never been performed live. Retrospectively, Next received a 2 out of 5 on AllMusic. Stephen Thomas Erlewine said that "without a forceful lead vocalist like Steve Perry, the group lacks focus and a pop sensibility and its attempts at straight-ahead pop/rock suffer as a result."
