年の暮れに演奏される「第九」の魅力

年末になると、毎年決まってベートーベンの「交響曲第9番」が演奏されます。
場所によっては、この第九の演奏を聴くだけでなく、市民が合唱に参加できるイベントが開催され、大いに賑わいを見せるところもあります。
実際、年々参加者も増える傾向にあり、第九の演奏日までに熱心に合唱の練習が繰り替えされています。
また、参加者の声からは、一度この第九の合唱に参加すると、止められなくなるという声をよく聞きます。
第九には、人を引き付ける不思議な力があるのでしょうか。
もともと、第九が年末に演奏されるようになったのは、日本独特の文化です。
この文化が形成された背景には、日本のあるオーケストラ(管弦楽団)が、きっかけでした。
このオーケストラは、演奏会を開いてもなかなか、観客数が満員になる事がなく、経営が赤字状態になっていた時代がありました。
この頃、ちょうど年末の演奏会で、たまたまベートーベンの第九番の交響曲「合唱付き」の全曲演奏を始めて試みたところ、非常に聴衆にうけ、それ以降、第九は日本の人々に広く知られるようになった、と言われています。
一度第九を聞くと、誰もが圧倒的な力量感と、荘厳な旋律による合唱に魅了される事でしょう。
第九演奏会における合唱に参加する人々も、聴くだけでは満足できず、自ら唄ってみるというスタンスに変化していったケースが圧倒的に多い特徴があります。
そういった点で、第九は時代と共に人々に愛され、人々が育んできた面も大きく、またこのような背景こそが、人の心を掴んで放さない、第九の魅力に発展していったとも言えます。

Gray asked Brady if Patriots fans deserve an explanation.

“I don’t know,” he said. “That’s probably a better answer for the guy who owns our team.”

Browns exec on Josh Rosen: “Something about him . . . bothered me”

Browns V.P. of player personnel Alonzo Highsmith had plenty to say on Monday about how the team settled on quarterback Baker Mayfield. Highsmith also shared some insights on why the Browns didn’t settle on quarterback Josh Rosen.

If Philadelphia doesn’t move Kendricks this offseason, it very well may consider releasing him. Only $3.2 million of his remaining salary is guaranteed.

Realistically, we could put Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell on this list. If he avoids the team for the majority of the offseason, the Steelers could grow tired of his antics and release him. However, he’d hold such high trade value—assuming Pittsburgh could convince Bell he’d be getting a long-term deal at his new destination so he would sign his tender—that it’s far more likely Pittsburgh would move him.

Instead, we’ll go with outside linebacker Anthony Chickillo, who has spent the last three seasons with the Steelers. While Chickillo is more of a depth player behind Bud Dupree and T.J. Watt, he is just 25 years old and has some edge-rushing value.

“I think Reggie has the maturity to understand that even though he’s this guy who has put up these unbelievable numbers, whose career is in the elite category, but can still come in and bring leadership to the room … I always thought the goal of the coaches is that [to] try to make these guys better than I was, you know?” Reich said, via the team’s website.

“And sometimes that’s hard for a player that has done the things that Reggie does, but I think he has that quality about him, that he can bring leadership and bring all of his experiences to the table — all his knowledge about route running — but still, this is about bringing the best out in these players and bringing them leadership, and I’m just really excited about that.”

One of Wayne’s former teammates is also helping tutor this generation of Colts. Robert Mathis is in his second season as a pass rushing consultant, but will have to wait to join Wayne in the team’s Ring of Honor after Wayne is inducted into it this November.

Trade rumors regarding Kendricks have swirled for much of the offseason. In mid-March, for example, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the Eagles were expected to shop Kendricks after they re-signed fellow linebacker Nigel Bradham.

Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are owning the moment for Boston

Boston’s Aron Baynes is determined to protect the basket at all costs, even if the results routinely put the Aussie big man on the wrong side of a SportsCenter highlight.

Brown still had a bit of a scowl as he settled in behind the microphone. Despite wearing a “7uice” sweatshirt that incorporates his jersey number and “Juice” nickname, the 21-year-old was in no mood to talk about himself. He had posted a career-best 34 points and, with help from rookie Jayson Tatum, nearly willed Boston to victory after the Celtics overcame a 20-point deficit.

When Brown was done, a reporter wondered how many shots in a row he had been trying to make before he finally called it a day.

Said Brown: “Enough to feel good about myself.”

But the only thing that will truly make Brown feel good is to win. And win now.

Marks: Two teams not named Cleveland or Golden State. It is hard to bet against the Cavaliers and Warriors, but I am sticking with the top seeds, Toronto and Houston. As both teams have proved early in the playoffs, having home court gives them a distinct advantage over the field.

Pelton: Philadelphia and Golden State. Nobody in the East is playing at a higher level right now than the 76ers, and they have the cleanest path to the conference finals. On the other side, I go back and forth between the Rockets and Warriors daily. Who ultimately wins a potential conference finals matchup may hinge on the health of Curry and Luc Mbah a Moute.

Kevin Pelton, ESPN Insider: I think Thunder-Jazz is the most compelling Game 6 from a strategic standpoint. Oklahoma City changed the series in the second half of Game 5 by switching more pick-and-rolls and playing harder on defense. According to Second Spectrum tracking, Utah’s shot quality dropped from a 55.3 percent qSQ in the first half (quantified shot quality, the effective field goal percentage we’d expect from average players taking those shots based on location, type and nearby defenders) to 51.6 percent after halftime.canucks_1348

NFL Draft 2018: Raiders Hall of Fame CB Mike Haynes talks draft, Oakland defense

If the Raiders hope to get back to Super Bowl contention, it will have to come with improvement on the defensive end, according to Hall of Fame cornerback Mike Haynes.

A member of the Raiders’ Super Bowl 28-winning team, Haynes knows what it takes to get to the promised land, and with the NFL Draft set to kick off Thursday at 8 p.m. ET, the Hall of Famer believes Oakland needs to address that side of the ball.

“The defense has got to be the best part of their team,” Haynes, who teamed up with Lester Hayes in the 1980s to form one of the best cornerback tandems of all time, told Omnisport. “Always it has to be if you’re expected to go to the Super Bowl.”

The Hall of Famer himself is a survivor of prostate cancer. He said he was fortunate to find out about his diagnosis early and encourages men to do the same.

“I think I’m more like an average guy, I don’t like going to the doctor, I don’t want to know if I have this or that, or at least I didn’t, but now everything’s changed,” Haynes said. “I realized I’m really lucky to be alive and a lot of it was I was fortunate to be in the right place at the right time, so our campaign is not about being lucky, but being proactive and understanding that if prostate cancer runs in your family, that you’re more likely to get it and you need to start having conversations with your doctor.”

Toughest tests: Playing in the NFC South is tough enough, but away matchups against both the Packers and Steelers adds to that. Pittsburgh is part of the AFC North series, and drawing the toughest of those teams on the road is not a desirable outcome for the dome-dwelling Falcons. The matchup with Green Bay comes with both teams finishing third in their respective divisions. That normally would seem like a good draw, but not against a team led by Aaron Rodgers, who’s coming back from a broken collarbone suffered in 2017.

Biggest breaks: Playing against fellow NFC third-place teams gives the Falcons some bad luck, but also some good. They’ll get the Cardinals at home in what should be one of the more winnable matchups of the year; Atlanta scraped together a respectable 7-9 season in 2017 but is moving toward rebuild mode. And the Falcons getting the Browns on the road is always a nice addition to the schedule.

New England Patriots schedule: Who do AFC East team face and when in NFL?

New England Patriots schedule: Who do AFC East team face and when in NFL? More Former Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola will face his old team in Week 4 as the Miami Dolphins visit Foxborough. The big clash between Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers will take place on Week 9 as the Green Bay Packers head to the Gillette Stadium. The Patriots receive their bye in Week 11 whileBill Belichick’s side will not play on Thanksgiving. The Pats close the season out with consecutive home games against the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets.

“I think it’s a little bit different,” Doughty said. “I’m not saying we deserved to win all three of those games, but I feel like this series we’ve been a little closer to winning the games whereas in the San Jose series, especially the first two games, they absolutely dominated us. So it’s a little different. We have a little more confidence going into this next game than we did before against San Jose, but we have a lot of work to do. They’ve outplayed us and beat us three games in a row and it’s time that we wake up here.”

“We always [believe]. You know, all the experience and the veterans in this locker room, they’ve been through it all,” said Iafallo. “They’ve been helping us young guys throughout the whole way. We believe in them and believe in ourselves, we’ll be fine. … We trust in ourselves. It’s been done before. We look at each other and look across the room and we can definitely do it.”

Mayock said he believes the debate new Browns General Manager John Dorsey faces atop the board is between Darnold and Allen.

“I’ve been saying that since the combine — Darnold and Allen — and it comes off watching a whole bunch of tape and having a little bit of a feel for what I call northern weather and having the ability to throw the ball,” Mayock said. “When you talk weather, people worry about rain and snow, and I’m saying no. I’m talking about wind, being able to step in the pocket and throw the ball in heavy winds in December, and immediately Darnold and Allen are the two guys that I think of from that perspective.”

Mayock pointed to the Kansas City Chiefs trading up from No. 27 overall to No. 10 last year, when Dorsey was their GM, to pick Patrick Mahomes, the quarterback with the strongest arm in the 2017 class. Allen’s arm is believed to be even stronger, but he lacks elite anticipation, timing and accuracy, thereby making him risky at No. 1. The main reason to doubt Darnold is the 22 interceptions and 21 fumbles (14 lost) he had in 27 games at USC.seahawks_180

Hmm, the Giants and a running back: What possible link could there be?

There are some pieces already on the roster, most notably promising Wayne Gallman, a 2017 fourth-round pick, plus underachieving holdover Paul Perkins and a newly signed veteran, former Panthers workhorse Jonathan Stewart. There’s no ringleader, though, and Saquon Barkley out of Penn State with the No. 2 overall pick would make a heck of a lot of sense. The Giants also like several backs they could get in the second or third round if they pass on Barkley.

Kapler, 42, is one of five MLB managers making his debut in a challenging East Coast market this spring. The New York Mets’ Mickey Callaway and Boston’s Alex Cora are a combined 23-5 and living the dream. The Yankees’ Aaron Boone and Nationals’ Dave Martinez are doing their best to navigate bumpier Aprils with supposed powerhouse teams off to middling starts.

Kapler’s first season in Philadelphia was supposed to be about development. The Phillies haven’t had a winning record since 2011 and were ostensibly in building mode for one more year. Then, some unforeseen buying opportunities emerged, management spent $169 million on free agents Jake Arrieta, Carlos Santana, Tommy Hunter and Pat Neshek, and the timetable for competitiveness received a nudge in a more urgent direction.

He played 2017 with the Giants, where he will be remembered for starting in Eli Manning’s place, ending Manning’s 210 consecutive regular-season game streak. The decision by Ben McAdoo helped get him fired, and Manning returned under center the following week.

For a long time, Pirates starting pitcher Jameson Taillon was headed toward being known as “that guy that got picked between Bryce Harper and Manny Machado.” Three starts into the season, it looks like Taillon could finally be up for his breakout, as he owns a 0.89 ERA across 20⅓ innings. Perhaps the best part for Taillon believers: He owns a 3.6 strikeout-to-walk ratio and is averaging 95 mph on his fastball. — Woolums

Robinson Cano hasn’t slowed down yet. The eight-time All-Star is off to a blistering start, with a batting average of .375 and reaching base more than 50 percent of the time. His bat has helped the Mariners get off to a strong start despite a nine-game absence for Nelson Cruz, who returned to the lineup Saturday. So far, the offense has offset Seattle’s starting pitching woes. — Casellajets_097

Leonard’s report, which cited multiple NFL sources, hit the internet before the Los Angeles Rams handed a one-year, $14 million deal to defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

The Raiders were 0-8 and looking for a new stadium deal. McCallum was invited to attend the game as part of the NFL’s Salute to Service Weekend, recognizing Veterans Day. He was in charge of lighting the ceremonial eternal flame honoring late Raiders owner Al Davis. Afterward, on the field, he made his case for Las Vegas to Mark Davis.

I know you’re trying to move out of Oakland and are working on the deal to L.A., McCallum said to Davis, but have you ever thought about coming to Las Vegas

According to McCallum, Davis said that he had considered it and even discussed it informally with Las Vegas mayor Carolyn Goodman, who suggested a potential stadium site out by the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, roughly 12 miles north of downtown. (It was revealed later that Davis had purchased the website domain for LasVegasRaiders.com in 1998).

McCallum didn’t like the speedway location and offered an alternative.

You need to come down to Las Vegas and meet with UNLV, he told Davis. I think it would be a great partnership there, and I think there’s money here to help get this done.

Apparently one network feels the reduced amount of breaks worked last season and will continue to use them. At the annual NFL owners meeting, CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus said that he was happy with the changes to the game presentation that took effect last season. He added that there won’t be any more major changes coming to the way we watch NFL games on TV in 2018.

Will anyone catch the Astros Can the Dodgers return to the World Series A new MLB season is here.

Taylor’s ascension is more than the story of a player finding himself mid-career. It reflects a key trait about the way the Dodgers operate. It’s not just about financial resources. It’s not just about paying equal attention to the traditional areas of scouting and minor league development. It’s also about finding diamonds in the rough and having a coaching staff that helps second-chance veterans become better versions of themselves.

Part of having depth is also creating opportunity, Zaidi said. We can talk about depth, but no player wants to view themselves as depth. Every player believes in his ability to be a big leaguer and believes he has a chance to impact the team, given that chance.patriots_104

Baker Mayfield after Pro Day: I’ve put myself in good spot to be considered draft’s best QB

Baker Mayfield didn’t hurt himself at Oklahoma’s Pro Day on Wednesday, though throwing against air, most quarterback prospects pass that test with flying colors.

Friday Five: The biggest NFL Draft quarterback busts of the BCS era More The NFL Draft is in a month, and as has been the case in recent years, quarterbacks are the hot commodities. In my most recent mock draft here at CBS Sports, I have three teams selecting QBs in the top five, and it’s entirely possible we could see four taken in the first five picks when the dust settles. Now more than ever, quarterback has become the “must have” in the NFL. Nevermind the fact that we just saw the Eagles lose their franchise QB to a torn ACL only to go on to win a Super Bowl with a third-round pick out of Arizona named Nick Foles; the prevailing theory is that to compete for Super Bowls, you must have a franchise QB.

The Oakland Raiders named Gruden their new head coach Saturday.

Jon Gruden, Oakland Raiders: He was formally introduced as the team’s coach during a news conference Tuesday. The veteran coach interviewed with the team Monday and reportedly received a 10-year, $100 million contract from the team. On Jan. 11, Rapoport reported former Colts RB coach Jemal Singleton is taking a job as Raiders RBs coach under Gruden.

The Steelers become the caretaker of the No. 1 spot with the Patriots’ temporary (it says here) setback. RB Le’Veon Bell was not particularly involved in the offense Sunday in Cleveland after his late arrival before the season, but that undoubtedly will change soon. Rookie LB T.J. Watt probably won’t play every Sunday like he’s about to add a fourth NFL defensive player of the year award to the family’s mantel. But he brings energy and passion and he should be a nice addition to the defense.

The opening win over the Bears was probably more challenging than it needed to be, as the Falcons just held on at the end. Things get more interesting with Sunday night’s nationally televised matchup with the Packers in the first regular season game at the Falcons’ new stadium.

Who’s the best team in the NFC? There’s the Eagles and … who? Perhaps the Seahawks or Rams or Panthers?

No one, it seems, is talking about a dominant NFL team. No player is performing feats that have made for can’t-miss viewing.

The best game of the season before Thursday’s probably came when Rodgers, in his final game before getting hurt, took the Green Bay Packers to a game-winning touchdown in the final seconds at Dallas, just as he’d ousted the Cowboys from the NFC playoffs in the same building last season with crunchtime quarterbacking magic. But Rodgers’s late-game sleight of hand immediately was overshadowed by Cowboys owner Jerry Jones saying afterward that he’d bench any player on his team who protested during the national anthem.

Dragic had 25 points, eight assists, four rebounds, two steals and one block in that game.

He made 11-of-22 shots from the floor, including 2-of-4 on 3-pointers.

Prior to that game, however, he had played three games in which he scored fewer than 15 points, missed three games because of the elbow injury and played three more in which he also scored less than 15. During that span, he averaged only 11.2 points, and the Heat expects more from its star point guard, especially with Waiters, Johnson and Winslow hurt.
