23. radiOM.org - Treasury of the 78's Early Recordings of Music by Béla Bartók [5.582% Popularity: 0.00000]
Treasury of the 78's: Early Recordings of Music by Béla Bartók Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program first broadcast on June 25, 1962, John Whiting presents some early 78 rpm recordings of works by Béla Bartók. Although the recordings suffer from the scratches and other distortions typical of old shellac discs, the quality and historical nature of the performances are such so as to allow for some imperfections in the recording medium. Of particular interest is Bartók’s “Concerto for Orchestra” performed by the Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam, under the direction of Eduard van Beinum, in which the scratches during the soft intro quickly give way to a robust presentation of one of Bartók’s latter orchestral masterpieces. The recording quality of the following selections of piano music is more problematic, but given that they are performed by the composer himself, who introduces each piece in his native Hungarian, make them of some historic...

27. radiOM.org - An Avant-Garde Christmas Concert by the S.F. Conservatory of New Music Ensemble, (Dec. 3, 1970) [5.353% Popularity: 0.00000]
An Avant-Garde Christmas Concert by the S.F. Conservatory of New Music Ensemble, (Dec. 3, 1970) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 81 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA On December 3, 1970 the San Francisco Conservatory New Music Ensemble presented this Avant-Garde Christmas Concert, at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco. The concert begins with “The Queens’ Funeral March and Canzona,” which was originally composed by Henry Purcell as incidental music for a play but was used for the funeral procession of Queen Mary in 1695. It has been orchestrated here by Robert Moran. This is followed by Purcell’s “Fantazia No. 6” and a reprise of the “March,” all orchestrated by Moran in which no notes have been added or subtracted, but merely reassigned to different instruments. We then hear an original composition by Moran, based on a simple two voice musical example by Purcell and entitled “Variations for Mr. Purcell.” The concert then takes a distinctly more modern turn with Shinʾichi Matsushita aleat...

In the first half of the program excerpts from "Ludwig Van,” a collage of Beethoven fragments, and "Acustica" a piece performed on instruments created by Kagel are heard. In the second half we hear Kagel's composition “MM51” from his film of the same name, featuring pianist Aloys Kontarsky, as well as his soundtrack for the classic Bunuel/Dali film "Un Chien Andalou", which is scored for orchestra & dogs.

30. radiOM.org - Michael Sellers Plays the Music of Dane Rudhyar and Leo Ornstein [5.193% Popularity: 0.00000]
Michael Sellers Plays the Music of Dane Rudhyar and Leo Ornstein Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 73 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Although any collaborative documentation is missing, and the identification of the compositions attributed to Dane Rudhyar is somewhat tentative, this does appear to be a concert of works by Rudhyar and Leo Ornstein as performed by pianist Michael Sellers. The concert took place in 1972, and is quite likely the KPFA sponsored concert held on March 5, 1972 at the Live Oak Theater in Berkeley California. In addition to what seems to be performances of Rudhyar’s “Granites,” “Pentagram No. 3,” and “Syntony,” two works by Leo Ornstein are also heard, “Poems of 1917” and “Wild Men's Dance” or “Danse Sauvage.” Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: Granites (1929) / Dane Rudhyar -- Pentagram No. 3 “The Release”: No. 1 Gates (3:03) ; No. 2 Gift of blood (1:45) ; No. 3 Pentecost (1:04) ; No. 4 Stars (3:09) ; No. 5 Sunburst (2:11) (1...
