21. radiOM.org - The Music of Silvestre Revueltas [2.918% Popularity: 0.00000]
The Music of Silvestre Revueltas Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 68 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFK A program prepared by KPFK music director, William Malloch, on the orchestral music of Silvestre Revueltas, the colorful Mexican composer. Malloch illustrates the composer’s tendency to orchestrate Mexican folk music and compares two performances of “Sensemayá” in which the tempos of the piece varies dramatically. Also included is the broadcast of a rare recording of a lengthy suite compiled by the conductor Jose Limantour, from Revueltas’ music to the film “La Noche de los Mayas”. (from KPFA Folio) Musical Selections: [excerpt of a suite compiled from the score for the film “La Noche de los Mayas”] / Silvestre Revueltas [arr. by José Ives Limantour] -- [excerpt of a band in a Mexico City religious progression] -- First Little Serious Piece [excerpt] (1957) / Silvestre Revueltas -- [excerpt of unidentified Mexican folk music] -- [excerpt of unidentified orchestral music base...
22. radiOM.org - Ojai Festival 1979: Final Concert [2.917% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ojai Festival: 1979: Final Concert Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 93 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA The 33rd Annual Ojai Festival held it’s final concert on May 20, 1979. In the first half of the concert, Lukas Foss conducts the Ojai Festival Orchestra in a performance of his own “Salomon Rossi Suite” as well as Haydn’s “Symphony No. 60.” The Suite is a brief orchestral work that like Stravinsky’s “Monumentum pro Gesualdo di Venosa” recasts a Renaissance composer's music for modern instruments. The second half of the program is given over to the West Coast premiere of “Lehrstück,” a work of musical theater by Paul Hindemith and Bertolt Brecht. Loosely inspired by Charles Lindbergh’s solo pan-Atlantic flight, this piece calls for an orchestra, chorus, solo vocalists, narrator, wind ensemble, and clown interlude. For this performance Werner Klemperer plays the role of narrator. Perhaps best known to American audiences as the actor who played the role of Colonel Klink in the 1960s’ sitco...
23. radiOM.org - The Age of the Talking Machine A Review of Vintage Recordings [2.917% Popularity: 0.00000]
The Age of the Talking Machine: A Review of Vintage Recordings Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 46 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Byron Bryant and Will Ogden review vintage recordings from the beginning of the 20th Century, focusing on the early cello recording of Pablo Casals, made between 1915 to 1926. Although the quality of the recordings made with an assortment of early technologies are scratchy at times, the strength of the performances, especially those by Casals, can not be denied. At a time when many great performers were heard only in the concert halls, and for that reason their reputations are perhaps diminished in the minds of many today, the genius of Pablo Casals was thankfully captured in these vintage recordings. Thus cementing his reputation as one of the greatest cellists of all time. Bryant and Ogdon play a selection of these very early recordings, comparing different performers, and commenting on the quality of the various techniques used to obtain these precious aud...
24. radiOM.org - Concerts by Composers No. 08: Works by Nicolas Collins, Ron Kuivila, Daniel Goode, & Arthur Russell [2.916% Popularity: 0.00000]
Concerts by Composers: No. 08: Works by Nicolas Collins, Ron Kuivila, Daniel Goode, & Arthur Russell Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 58 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA In the late 1970s and early 1980s the Experimental Intermedia Foundation held a series of exciting concerts of avant-garde and electro-acoustic music at Phill Niblock’s loft in the SoHo district of New York City. These concerts were then packaged into a series of hour-long radio programs entitled “Concerts by Composers” and distributed to interested radio stations around the United States. This eighth program in the series features music by Nicolas Collins, Ron Kuivila, Daniel Goode, & Arthur Russell. The program begins with two works of computer music by Nicolas Collins and Ron Kuivila respectively, from a joint concert in March of 1979 held at the Electronic Intermedia Foundation. Each piece uses homemade electronic circuit boards to process sounds, in a sense the logic gates themselves becoming the musical scores for e...
25. radiOM.org - Ojai Festival Ojai Festival Report 1979 [2.915% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ojai Festival: Ojai Festival Report 1979 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 37 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian reviews the 1979 Ojai Festival, held on May 18-20 of that year, and produced by composer and conductor, Lukas Foss, and concert impresario, William Malloch. The Festival, which was held in the bucolic setting of Ojai, California, situated 30 minutes inland from Ventura, began with a night of live music accompaniment for a number of silent films, including a rare showing of Dudley Murphy’s and Fernand Léger’s “Ballet Méchanique” accompanied by George Antheil’s score. The second day featured a collaboration between a group of Indian musicians led by Ravi Shankar and a group of Japanese musicians performing on traditional instruments. This performance perfectly blended the sound of the sitar and koto in a concert that was billed as East Greets East. Later that day Foss played a number of Bach keyboard concertos while also conducting the orchestra with his left han...
26. radiOM.org - Morning Concert The Music by Johanna Magdalena Beyer, Mar. 29, 1990 [2.914% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: The Music by Johanna Magdalena Beyer, Mar. 29, 1990 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 118 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA This is the first of two programs devoted to the works of the largely forgotten German-American composer, Johanna Magdalena Beyer (1888-1944). Beyer, who died of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, was a pioneering avant-garde composer who’s works would be lost if it were not for the preservation efforts of the American Music Center in New York City, to which she had donated her scores prior to her death. Beyer was by most accounts a tall, angular, painfully self-conscious woman, who nevertheless devoted herself to the cause of contemporary classical music, even serving as a personal secretary for Henry Cowell during his imprisonment on homosexual morals charges. This program includes recordings of Beyer’s music made at the first of two concerts devoted solely to Beyer’s work. The concert occurred on N...
27. radiOM.org - Morning Concert John Cage Memorial Program Upon His 80th Birthday [2.914% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: John Cage Memorial Program Upon His 80th Birthday Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 117 min Event Type: Documentary Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) From September 4, 1992, Charles Amirkhanian introduces a retrospective on the life of composer John Cage, whose work has had a great influence on artistic thought in the 20th Century, and who had just passed away a few weeks before what would have been his 80th birthday on September 5th 1992. Richard Friedman, and composer, author, and critic Charles Shere join in the commentary, and archival recordings of Cage’s voice complete the festivities. Also heard during this program are live telephone interviews with Laura Kuhn, who had assisted Cage with many of his affairs from 1986 until his death; Remy Charlip, author, choreographer, dancer, and close personal friend of Cage and Lou Harrison; and composer Christian Wolff, who as a 16 year old in 1950 studied with Cage and later became a good friend. The contrast b...
28. radiOM.org - Morning Concert The Music of Ben Johnston [2.912% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: The Music of Ben Johnston Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 126 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) American composer Benjamin Burwell Johnston was born March 15, 1926 in Macon, GA. Living briefly in Berkeley, CA, in 1950, he was associated with Harry Partch and studied at the University of California and Mills College. From 1951 to 1983 he taught at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In this program, recorded in 1981, Johnston is interviewed by Charles Amirkhanian about his career, compositions, and influences. A composer fundamentally partial to microtones, Johnston discusses his discovery of just intonation, initiated by his contact with composer Partch. Heard during this program is a selection of Johnston’s microtonal music, including his string quartet built around the theme of “Amazing Grace” and his “Suite for Microtonal Music”, as well as his “Knocking Piece” in which two performers rap upon the interio...
29. radiOM.org - Harvey Matusow and the International Carnival of Experimental Sounds [2.911% Popularity: 0.00000]
Harvey Matusow and the International Carnival of Experimental Sounds Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 111 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian talks to Harvey Matusow about the International Carnival of Experimental Sounds (ICES ‘72), an avant-garde music festival, based on the theme of myth, magic, madness and mysticism, that was held in August 1972 in London. Featuring 46 concerts in 14 days, including marathon performances in an refurbished railroad roundhouse, a music train to Edinburgh, films, happenings, and performances by avant-garde artists, dancers, and musicians from around the world, ICES ‘72 could be considered as a spiritual progenitor of such extravagances as Burning Man. That it was the brain child of Matusow, (with help from John LIfton and the editors of “Source Magazine”), is of little surprise as the man was part clown, part con man, and full time promoter of all things weird and wonderful. Once known as the “most hated man in America” for his role in ...

The Changing Face of Igor Stravinsky Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 65 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFK William Malloch illustrates how the performer’s and conductor’s attitudes toward Stravinsky’s music, including those of Stravinsky himself, have changed through the years. This program includes a discussion of these changes in tempo, accent, and other parameters, along with numerous musical examples taken from various versions of the “Firebird Suite”, “Petrouchka”, and “Le Sacre du Printemps (’Rite of Spring’)”, from recordings made during the 1930s to the 1950s by a variety of orchestras and conductors.
