63. radiOM.org - Stravinsky in Rehearsal from 1947 [5.089% Popularity: 0.00000]
Stravinsky in Rehearsal from 1947 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 59 min Event Type: Documentary Program Origin: KPFK In 1947, William Malloch, possessed by a sense of history, recorded Igor Stravinsky rehearsing his new revision of his “Symphonies of Wind Instruments in Memory of Debussy”. Malloch comments upon and plays this historical recording, which was broadcast by permission of the composer himself. The sound is antique but the picture of what Stravinsky is striving for musically comes through clearly enough. Malloch’s three part series on Stravinsky (of which this is the second part) won runner-up honors in the Eighth Annual Armstrong Awards, the seventh national award his programs have won.

Selected Writings and Music of Erik Satie Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 58 min Event Type: Documentary Program Origin: KPFA A program first broadcast in 1968 featuring Howard Hersh reading excerpts from the collected writings of French composer and pianist Erik Satie. The selections, which seem to be taken from assorted lectures, essays, and perhaps diary entries are both whimsical and enlightening. Subjects vary from his love for cabbage soup (only surpassed by his love of his mother); a schedule of activities; a list of his preferred diet (only white foods); comments on the education system of France; as well as the admission that he never married for a fear of being cuckold and the belief that no woman could understand him. In the second half of the program we hear Satie’s comments on critics and animals; ruminates on his heritage and lifestyle; as well as a description of the purpose of furniture music. Satie was known to be a bit of an eccentric and these brief insights from his own pen do ...
