Morning Concert: 50th Anniversary of the Concert Societe Musicale Independante Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 125 min Event Type: Music and Interview Program Origin: KPFA On May 5, 1926 six young American composers who had been working in Paris presented their chamber music to an audience of musicians, intelligentsia, and socialites in the famed Salle Pleyel (or perhaps the nearby Salle Chopin). The concert, arranged by Nadia Boulanger and sponsored by the Societe Musicale Independente, a group which included the most celebrated European composers of the time, gave the French one of their first chances to hear what Americans were capable of musically. The program consisted of the Virgil Thomson's "Sonata da chiesa"; Herbert Elwell's "Nine Piano Pieces"; Aaron Copland's "As It Fell Upon a Day" and two jazz violin pieces, "Nocturne" and "Ukelele Serenade"; Walter Piston's "Piano Sonata"; Theodore Chanler's "Sonata for Violin and Piano"; and George Antheil's "First String Quartet".

43. - Other Minds Presents Henry Cowell: The Whole World of Music, Concert Two [3.242% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Presents: Henry Cowell: The Whole World of Music, Concert Two Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 157 min Event Type: Lecture and Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds On November 13, 2009, at the Presidio Chapel in San Francisco, CA, Other Minds presented the second of two concerts dedicated to the music of Henry Cowell. Born in Menlo Park in 1897, Cowell began his musical career as a concert pianist, and is perhaps best known for pioneering such “ultramodern” performance techniques as “tone clusters,” in which the arms are used to play a number of notes simultaneously, and the direct manipulation of the strings of the piano, in a manner that presaged John Cage’s works for prepared piano. Yet Cowell’s greatest contribution to avant-garde music came with his publication of the journal “New Music Quarterly” and its associated recordings. First issued in 1927, and edited by Cowell until 1936 this journal was where many works, by what are now recognized as the greatest 20th century Ame...

The Chamber Music of Richard Maxfield Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 24 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA A selection of early, mostly chamber music works by the American composer, Richard Maxfield. Although perhaps known best for his pioneering work in the realm of electronic music, Maxfield was first an award winning composer of 20th century classical music, who studied with Roger Sessions and Milton Babbitt. The first work heard in this program is the finale of his “Piano Sonata No. 2” which was dedicated to Roger Sessions. Also included are an excerpt of his 1951 “Symphony” for string orchestra, a string quartet, and “Composition” for violin and piano, as well as “Structures” which is scored for ten wind instruments. Maxfield, who studied at U. C. Berkeley, performed concerts widely, and taught at the New School in New York City and then at the San Francisco State University in the late 1960s, tragically committed suicide in 1969 by throwing himself out a Los Angeles hotel window. Mu...

This thirteenth program in the series features music by Scott Johnson, Moniek Darge, Godfried-Willem Raes, & David Gibson. The program begins with composer and sound sculptor Scott Johnson discussing his interest in composing music that incorporates the types of instruments and technologies that permeate modern society.

47. - Frank Zappa Day [2.912% Popularity: 0.00000]
Frank Zappa Day Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 240 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA On February 10, 1986, as part of its fund raising marathon, KPFA dedicated an entire day of programming to the music of Frank Zappa, including this four hour long segment, during which Zappa joined Charles Amirkhanian, live in the studio to talk about his work and his fight against censorship, as well as to take part in an hour long panel discussion on gang violence and its relationship to rock music and Satanism. Although much of the time is taken up with pleas for money, Zappa manages to insert his brand of sardonic humor into all the activities, be it personally promising donors will go to heaven, or urging the police to investigate the crimes committed by born-again Christians. The give and take with KPFA listeners during a call-in period following the panel discussions is not to be missed. Zappa also reveals a few nuggets of trivia including the origin of those crazy conversations foun...
48. - Speaking of Music Frank Zappa (1984) [2.904% Popularity: 0.00000]
Speaking of Music: Frank Zappa (1984) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 134 min Event Type: Interview and Music In an interview recorded on May 20, 1984, before a live audience as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium's Speaking of Music series, Charles Amirkhanian speaks with Frank Zappa about his forays into, and subsequent retreat from, the world of so called “serious” music. Zappa begins his remarks with the proclamation that Art in America is dead. He then lays the blame for its moribund state on schools that have ceased to educate, a mass media that only entertains but never explores, and the tendency of those who do still attend cultural events to be only interested in being seen and drinking copious amounts of white wine. During the first half of the program Zappa plays excerpts from a number of projects, including performances of his music by the London Symphony Orchestra and Ensemble InterContemporain, as well as a number of works composed on the Synclavier, one of the first digital synt...
