6. radiOM.org - Speaking of Music Morton Feldman, Jan. 30, 1986 [5.065% Popularity: 0.00000]
Speaking of Music: Morton Feldman, Jan. 30, 1986 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 97 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From a recording made on January 30, 1986 as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series, Charles Amirkhanian interviews Morton Feldman and asks him right at the start if his music is Hermetic. The answers take us on a whirlwind tour of this composer's opinions, philosophy, criticisms, recollections and observations. There are excerpts from his “Piano and String Quartet” as well as his “Violin and Orchestra”. Feldman indicates that his compositions, which are usually lengthy, can be compared to the novels of Proust or the drinking of fine wine: and are to be sipped rather than gulped. Don't give up listening until you find out why Fred Astaire danced so well, or why Beethoven wrote his C-sharp minor String Quartet; Feldman provides the answers! Thanks to the Estate of Morton Feldman for permission to share this historic interview. All R...
7. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Interviews with Andrew Imbrie and Charles Wuorinen (Jan. 11, 1985) [5.050% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Interviews with Andrew Imbrie and Charles Wuorinen (Jan. 11, 1985) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 92 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program broadcast on January 11, 1985, Charles Amirkhanian interviews Andrew Imbrie about a forthcoming retrospective concert of his works and his remembrances of Leo Ornstein, with whom he studied piano as a child. According to Imbrie, Ornstein is a very intuitive musician and served as an inspiration for his desire to become a composer. Imbrie also relates how Ornstein was himself led to composing as a means to recall the piano works that he was already improvising. Amirkhanian then introduces New York composer Charles Wuorinen, whose “Rhapsody” was scheduled to be performed by the San Francisco Symphony later that week. An advocate of well rehearsed performances of complex modern scores, Wuorinen has argued that audience acceptance of new works is greatly hindered by performances lacking in rehearsal preparation, i...

Morning Concert: Vincent Plush (1986) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 141 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA In 1986 composer Vincent Plush, whose music in his native Australia enjoys a popularity akin to that of our own John Adams here, visited the KPFA studios to discuss his orchestra piece, "Pacifica", which was premiered June 14, 1986 by the Sydney Symphony under the direction of Zdeněk Mácal, at the Sydney Opera House on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of ABC-FM radio. Plush, born in Adelaide, South Australia, in 1950, also introduces important music by other Australians and talks about the plans for the celebration of the bicentennial of his country. Plush's music, incorporating Australian themes in the collage fashion of the American composer Charles Ives, has taken an internationalist turn in "Pacifica", a 25 minute work which celebrates the music of those cultures and countries in Latin America which border the Pacific Basin. The piece contains references to t...
