1. - Stravinsky in Rehearsal from 1947 [5.097% 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.

2. - The Romantic Tradition Arthur Nikisch: The Last of the Romantic Conductors [5.079% Popularity: 0.00000]
The Romantic Tradition: Arthur Nikisch: The Last of the Romantic Conductors Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 54 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA William Malloch talks to conductors Richard Lert and Alfred Sendrey and cellist Nathan Liebenbaum about their memories of the 19th century's most "glamourous" conductor, Arthur Nikisch. Born in 1855, the Hungarian violinist and conductor, was considered by many, during his life, as the greatest interpreter of the music of Beethoven, Liszt, and Brahms. An attractive and fashionable man, Nikisch developed a style of conducting that was later adopted by many modern maestros. With his in depth analysis of the score, simple beat, conservative movements that employed the eyes as much as the arms, and his charismatic personality, Nikisch elicited supremely evocative performances from his orchestras. Although only recorded a few times, and then only using acoustic horn recording techniques that were unable to capture the full sound and subt...

4. - Ojai Festival Ojai Festival Report 1979 [5.061% Popularity: 0.00000]
Ojai Festival: Ojai Festival Report 1979 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 37 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian reviews the 1979 Ojai Festival, held on May 18-20 of that year, and produced by composer and conductor, Lukas Foss, and concert impresario, William Malloch. The Festival, which was held in the bucolic setting of Ojai, California, situated 30 minutes inland from Ventura, began with a night of live music accompaniment for a number of silent films, including a rare showing of Dudley Murphy’s and Fernand Léger’s “Ballet Méchanique” accompanied by George Antheil’s score. The second day featured a collaboration between a group of Indian musicians led by Ravi Shankar and a group of Japanese musicians performing on traditional instruments. This performance perfectly blended the sound of the sitar and koto in a concert that was billed as East Greets East. Later that day Foss played a number of Bach keyboard concertos while also conducting the orchestra with his left han...
5. - Ojai Festival 1979: Final Concert [5.056% 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...
