Speaking of Music: Vincent Plush, Sept. 4, 1986 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 109 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Composer Vincent Plush is interviewed by Charles Amirkhanian on September 4, 1986, as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series. Plush is a protégé of Australia's most important living composer Peter Sculthorpe, and could be described as a down under counterpart to the U. S. composer John Adams. Plush's orchestral work "Pacifica" is cut from the same cloth as Adams' "Harmonium" and his work often treats historical Australian figures.

Mr. Rosenman was one of four 1949 KPFA staff alumni present at the 40th anniversary banquet for the station on April 29, 1989, and promised this return trip so that we can hear both his music and his reminiscences as the first programmer to interview living composers on KPFA.

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 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...

Ode To Gravity: Do Fraig Amors, etc... Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 46 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Another excellent example of an early Ode to Gravity program produced by Charles Amirkhanian. This time it is an interesting mix of music and spoken word, ranging from Medieval Germanic choral music, avant-garde orchestral works, American popular music from the 1920s or 1930s, canary’s chirping, spell casting, bowling advice, and other assorted sounds. Inventive, experimental, and always amusing this Ode to Gravity program really highlights the verbal and musical creativity of Amirkhanian and the artistic environment that was Berkeley California in the early 1970s. Musical Selections: Do Fraig Amors / Oswald von Wolkenstein -- [unidentified piece] / Carlos Surinach -- We can’t sleep in the movies, anymore -- Symphony No. 4 [excerpt] (1953) / Carlos Chávez -- [a mix of spoken word and music] (1970) Genres: Orchestral Music ; 20th Century Classical Subject: 20th century classical ; Ca...

Press Conference of Harold Farberman, Feb. 1970 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 24 min Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA On February 26, 1970, Harold Farberman was presented to the San Francisco Bay Area media as the new Musical Director of the Oakland Symphony Orchestra during this press conference. Farberman was to succeed Gerhard Samuel, who had made quite a reputation at Oakland as an adventurous concert programmer, and had resigned from his post because he wanted to pursue more guest conducting jobs. As a result of this history, Farberman and Herbert Sandler, the vice president of the Symphony, emphasize the Maestro’s commitment to contemporary classical composers, pointing out that Farberman has been a great promoter of Charles Ives’ music, as well as assuring everybody that he would be permitted to pursue any guest conducting offers that arose during his tenure. Quizzing the conductor on these and other points are a number of music critics from the Bay Area, including Charles Amirk...
