42. radiOM.org - The Music of Lou Harrison (August 1968) [0.363% Popularity: 0.00000]
The Music of Lou Harrison (August 1968) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 218 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Recorded in August of 1968 this is a wonderful four part program in which American composer Lou Harrison presents a selection of his varied works, in roughly chronological order. The program begins with Harrison providing a brief biographical sketch of his life in which he describes being born in Oregon and how he then moved with his family to Northern California, and his subsequent self-identification as a San Francisco Bay Area composer. The rest of the first half of the program is then dedicated to presenting many of his earlier, Mission Period compositions, (a term meant to reflect his adopted home in California), including some of his groundbreaking percussion ensemble pieces such as his “Suite for Percussion” and “Labyrinth No. 3.” In the third hour of this program the emphasis switches to his longer works written for larg...
43. radiOM.org - The Life and Music of Elie Siegmeister [0.307% Popularity: 0.00000]
The Life and Music of Elie Siegmeister Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 135 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA In a recording made on March 24, 1972 and first broadcast on July 31st of that year, Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer Elie Siegmeister and his wife Hannah, while also playing a wide assortment of Siegmeister’s music. Known for his interest in American music and the plight of the working class, Siegmeister has written art songs, operas, musicals, and film scores, as well as a wide variety of orchestral and chamber works. In this delightful interview Siegmeister disputes Amirkhanian’s attempt to divide his career into an early Americana phase and a later period dedicated to more experimental and abstract music, saying that while certain works may emphasize one aspect more than the other both themes are generally present in all his music. An active composer since at least the 1930s Siegmeister knew many of the great American composers of his time and provides ente...
44. radiOM.org - Morning Concert The Music by Johanna Magdalena Beyer, Mar. 29, 1990 [0.286% 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...

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...

San Francisco Chamber Music Society: A Concert by the Caselli Ensemble, January 25, 1982 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 85 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA The fourth concert of the 1981-82 season of the San Francisco Chamber Music Society, featured the Caselli Ensemble, a wind quintet made up from members of the San Francisco Symphony. The concert was recorded live, on January 25, 1982 at the Fireman’s Fund Forum in San Francisco, and featured four 20th century compositions by Carl Nielsen, Bill Douglas, Irving Fine, and Leoš Janáček. All the works are scored for bassoon, oboe, clarinet, horn, and flute, except for “Mladi” by Leoš Janáček which added an extra bass clarinet to the ensemble. Each of the works is given a brief introduction by a different member of the ensemble, in which they provide some background information about the composer and the particular piece. Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: Wind Quintet, Op. 43 (1922) (23:32) / Carl Nielsen -- Woodwind Quintet (1981) (10...
47. radiOM.org - An Interview and Performance by Dane Rudhyar, (July 29, 1956) [0.065% Popularity: 0.00000]
An Interview and Performance by Dane Rudhyar, (July 29, 1956) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 66 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: Tenney Estate Additional Media Files (click to view) In a recording made on July 29, 1956, Dane Rudhyar is interviewed for KPCC Radio in Pasadena, California. Rudhyar talks about his early history, his decision to move to the United States in 1916, his interest in Indian and “Oriental” music, psychology, painting, and poetry. While he describes his music as having dissonant elements, Rudhyar seeks to make a distinction between his compositions, which he states are attempts to be attuned to human psychology, and the more technical exercises in modernism of other avant-garde pianist composers. To illustrate his comments Rudhyar performs a number of selections from “Moments,” a collection of tone poems for the piano that were later revised and republished in the 1970s as his “Pentagrams.” These brief but poignant and very resonant works are perfectly bal...

Other Minds Festival: OM 13: Panel Discussion & Concert 1 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 140 min Event Type: Lecture / Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian moderates a panel discussion with the composers featured in the first concert of OM 13. Michael Bach discusses the inspiration for Dieter Schnebel’s “Mit Diesen Händen” as well as describing his unique curved BACH.bow that he uses to perform it. Åke Parmerud then reflects on the nature of science and the concept that all of creation can be considered as a single organic machine, and how he has used it as the philosophical basis for his tape piece “La Vie Mécanique”. Elena Kats-Chernin describes her works for piano, which despite their deceptively simple structure, are in fact incredibly difficult to play. And a somewhat taciturn Ishmael Wadada Leo Smith offers a brief introduction to his compositional technique, while also declaring his personal predilection to not talk about h...
49. radiOM.org - Ojai Festival 1979: Final Concert [0.034% 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...

Jean Nandi Harpsichord Recital (Dec. 12, 1971) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 84 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA A recital of harpsichord music by Jean Nandi, recorded on December 12, 1971 at the Berkeley Piano Club. Ms. Nandi plays a selection of works by Louis Couperin, Girolamo Frescobaldi, Domenico Scarlatti, J.S. Bach, & Lou Harrison. The harpsichord used in this concert was built for Jean Nandi in 1970 by Richard Alexander, of Berkeley California. The scaling is similar to an instrument made by Andreas Ruckers, of Antwerp, in 1639. This original instrument is now in the Gemeentemuseumin of The Hague, Netherlands. Mr. Alexander modified the design of the original, chiefly to allow a greater range. Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: Suite in G Minor / Louis Couperin -- Bergamasca (ca. 1635) / Girolamo Frescobaldi -- Partite 14 sopra l’Aria della Romanesca / Girolamo Frescobaldi Performers: Jean Nandi, harpsichord Genre: Classical Music Subject: 17th century classical ; Harpsichord mu...
