81. radiOM.org - Comparatively Speaking Transcriptions of Bach’s Chorales & Sonatas [0.743% Popularity: 0.00000]
Comparatively Speaking: Transcriptions of Bach’s Chorales & Sonatas Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 65 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Originally broadcast in February 1980, Matthew Holdreith presents another program in his Comparatively Speaking series, in which he examines various transcriptions of the works of Johann Sebastian Bach. In this recording, a number of Bach’s chorale preludes, fugues, and organ sonatas are presented in their original form, juxtaposed with some of the more famous arrangements of those same works, by a variety of composers, conductors, and musicians. Ranging from the elegantly reverential piano transcriptions of Myra Hess, Ferruccio Busoni, and Egon Petri, to the much reviled bombastic orchestral interpretations of Leopold Stokowski, and the delightful yet perhaps inappropriately airy arrangements by Mozart, these recordings are a testimony to the inspiration that the imaginative versatility of the Baroque master has provided to those that have...
82. radiOM.org - The Music of Lou Harrison (August 1968) [0.691% 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...
83. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity George Antheil & Four Lives in Paris [0.686% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: George Antheil & Four Lives in Paris Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian introduces three recordings of compositions by George Antheil, the original bad boy of music, who lived from 1900 to 1959. Amirkhanian also discusses “Four Lives in Paris,” Hugh Ford’s book documenting the lives of Antheil, Kay Boyle, Harold Stearns, and Margaret Anderson as Americans living in France during the heady days of the early 20th century. Published by North Point Press of Berkeley, California, the volume brings to light information about four, representative, yet lesser known lights, of the American expatriate scene in Paris in the 1920s. Amirkhanian reads a passage from the book that describes the sort of conditions Antheil enjoyed living above Sylvia Beech’s famous bookstore, and meeting such luminaries as Erik Satie and Ezra Pound. (from KPFA Folio) Musical Selections: Sonata, for tr...
84. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Matthijs Vermeulen [0.685% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Matthijs Vermeulen Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 133 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Han Reiziger, the Music Director of VPRO, presents a program of music by Dutch composer Matthijs Vermeulen. Born in 1888 to a blacksmith, Vermeulen originally planned to be a priest but turned to music after being exposed to the theories of counterpoint while attending a seminary. He later moved to Amsterdam where he studied music first with Daniël de Lange, and later with Alphons Diepenbroc, whose daughter he would eventually take to be his second wife. A talented writer Vermeulen supported himself throughout his life by working for a number for newspapers as both a critic and editor covering a wide variety of subjects musical, cultural and political. Vermeulen’s music tended to be rather atonal and in 1918 he got involved in a dispute with the more traditionally minded chief conductor of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Willem Mengelberg, resulting in his moving to France in the h...
85. radiOM.org - George Antheil: String Quartet No. 1 [0.662% Popularity: 0.00000]
George Antheil: String Quartet No. 1 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 31 min Event Type: Music and Interview Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian discusses the challenges in performing George Antheil's Violin Sonata and String Quartet No. 1 with Antheil's wife and Anne Kish, a violinist. The tape starts with a discussion, recorded in the Berkeley home of Jeanne Stark, of Antheil’s 1923 “Sonata No. 1 for Violin and Piano” with Ann Kish, Böske Antheil, Jeanne Stark, and Charles Amirkhanian. This is followed by an interesting discussion of Antheil's importance by Kish, and comments by the composer's widow reminiscing about the early performances by Olga Rudge and Antheil of this music. The program concludes with a performance of Antheil's “Quartet No. 1 for Strings” (1924), probably the first one since the mid-1920s. Until that time the score had languished in the composer's personal archive. NOTE: The discussion is rather "off-mic" but intelligible. Musical Selections: Violin So...
86. radiOM.org - Morning Concert The Music of David Jaffe [0.611% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: The Music of David Jaffe Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 76 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Composer-performer David Jaffe has bridged the gap between acoustic folk music and the world of cerebral computer music with a multi-stylistic approach. A lecturer at Stanford University, where much of his work is produced at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA), Jaffe also worked with neXt Computers on creating new types of music software. His composition “Impossible Animals” contains human vocal timbres in the shape of carefully analyzed bird songs. He is interviewed by Charles Amirkhanian about his career. Also heard in this program is a recording by a 19th century equivalent of Jaffe, the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg. (from KPFA Folio) Musical Selections: Telegram to the President, for string quartet and tape (1984) / David Jaffe -- [sample of winter wrens] -[sample of choral music with tape] -- Impossible Animals, for chorus and co...

Gertrude Stein 100th Anniversary Concert Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 121 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA This four part program is of a live broadcast from a concert given at 1750 Arch Street on February 3, 1974, in honor of Gertrude Stein on the 100th anniversary of her birth. During the intermission and while the audience viewed the film "The Last Still Life" by Ann Sandifer, Charles Amirkhanian plays a recording of a Suite from Virgil Thomson's opera, "The Mother of Us All", based on a text by Gertrude Stein. The live concert then concludes with an additional work by Thomson and one by Charles Shere. Part 1 of 4: Musical Selections: Miss Gertrude Stein as a Young Girl (1928) / Virgil Thomson -- A Valentine to Sherwood Anderson (1922) / Gertrude Stein -- Preciosilla / Gertrude Stein -- Preciosilla [text by Gertrude Stein] (1926) / Virgil Thomson -- She She and She (1974) / Charles Amirkhanian -- Sonata No.3 (1930) / Virgil Thomson Performers: Ron Erickson, violin (Stein as a young...
88. radiOM.org - Ode To Gravity A Concert from Hilversum, Dec. 19, 1973 [0.463% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ode To Gravity: A Concert from Hilversum, Dec. 19, 1973 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 90 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian introduces a program of music that he originally produced in 1973, in Hilversum, Holland, during his exchange program with the Dutch radio station, VPRO. This radio concert features an orchestral overture by George Antheil, two works for strings by Darius Milhaud, a string quartet by Germaine Tailleferre, and a symphony by Willem Pijper. The last two pieces are little known in the United States and serve as a reminder that many composers’ works, no matter how good, seldom get played, let alone recorded and mass distributed outside their own countries. Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: McKonkey’s Ferry Overture (1948) (9:20) / George Antheil -- Sonatina, for two violins, Op. 221 (1940) (7:20) / Darius Milhaud -- String Quartet No. 12, Op. 252 (1945) (15:45) / Darius Milhaud -- String Quartet (1919-21) (10:35) ...

Other Minds Festival: OM 8: Panel Discussion & Concert 2 (video) View Item Type: Video Duration: 175 min Event Type: Lecture and Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) This first part of this program begins with the concluding performance from the first concert of the OM 8 Festival held on March 7, 2002. The composition is “New Work,” an improvisation by The Circle Trio, Pauline Oliveros, accordion, India Cook, violin, and Karolyn van Putten, voice. The second concert of OM 8 Festival, held on March 8, 2002, then begins with a panel discussion moderated by Charles Amirkhanian and featuring Richard Teitelbaum, Tom Buckner, and composers Annea Lockwood, Lou Harrison. Teitelbaum talks about how his interest in shakuhachi music led him to collaborate with some of the great Japanese masters of the instrument and influenced many of his electro-acoustic compositions. Lou Harrison then demonstrates the tack piano, for which he thinks he has composed the only work for its s...

Other Minds Festival: OM 7: Artist Forum and Concert 2, March 9, 2001 (video) View Item Type: Video Duration: 162 min Event Type: Lecture and Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds The second concert of the 7th Other Minds Festival of New Music (OM 7), held on March 9, 2001, at the Cowell Theater of the Fort Mason Center, in San Francisco, began with a panel discussion featuring a number of the Festival’s featured composers and performers, moderated by Other Minds Executive and Artistic Director, Charles Amirkhanian. During this fascinating group discussion, Alvin Curran describes his “Inner Cities” a series of pieces of piano music, as “no frills music” that inhabits his heart in a manner that is quite unlike the more collaborative improvisations and electro-acoustic amalgamations for which he is perhaps better known. Composer and jazz pianist Andrew Hill then talks about his own work for solo piano which he composed while ensconced in an Italian palace and describes it as both a portrait of a fellow r...
