The first selection heard, “La muse ménagère”, was played as people were still entering the music hall and therefore there is a bit of crowd noise, and the actual performer is uncertain. However this is but a small distraction from what is otherwise a wonderful tribute to one of the great 20th century composers. Part 1 of 4: Musical Selections: La Muse Ménagère, Op. 245 (”The Household Muse”) (1945) (19:00) -- Musique pour Graz, Op. 429 (1968"69) (15:30) Performers: Mills Performing Group (Graz) Jean-Louis LeRoux, conductor (Graz) Naomi Sparrow, piano (Muse) or Betty Woo, piano (Muse) Genres: 20th Century Cl...

This program includes recordings of Beyer’s music made at the second of two concerts devoted solely to Beyer’s work. The concert occurred on...

Morning Concert: Composer Karel Husa Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 140 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Born in Prague in 1921, composer Karel Husa won the Pulitzer Prize for music in 1969, for his third String Quartet. On February 7, 1975 he was in Berkeley to attend a conference of college band directors and stopped by the KPFA studio to talk with KPFA Music Director Charles Amirkhanian and Charles Shere, music critic with the Oakland Tribune. The three of them discuss the phenomena of university bands and how they are a breeding ground for young and enthusiastic wind players, who should ideally have an outlet for their talent once finishing their education. The idea that a composer needs to dumb down their works in order to be played by a school band is thoroughly disputed by Husa. Husa, who was a professor of music at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, also discusses his early life in Prague, his musical influences, including Schoenberg, Webern, and Berg, as well...
