A Tribute to Leo Ornstein Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 79 min Event Type: Documentary Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian narrates this tribute to the amazing but neglected Leo Ornstein, who was perhaps America's most radical composer and pianist during the early 20th century. Ornstein never recorded any of his own works, but continued working in obscurity on his own compositions long after his retirement from the concert stage in 1928. This program, broadcast on the composer’s 80th birthday, includes premier performances of Ornstein works by pianist Michael Sellers. Also included is an interview with Ornstein and his wife Pauline, recorded by telephone from their home in New Hampshire. Musical Selections: Poems of 1917, Op. 41 (1918) / Leo Ornstein -- Berceuse (ca. 1920-21) / Leo Ornstein -- Reflet dans l'eau (1901-05) / Claude Debussy -- Arabesques, Op. 42: No. 3 "Chant of Hindoo Priests" ; No. 1 "The Isle of Elephantine" ; No.5 "A Melancholy Landsc...

Morning Concert: Leo Ornstein Centenary Program Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 110 min Event Type: Music and Interview Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Composer-pianist Leo Ornstein is interviewed by Charles Amirkhanian on the occasion of his 100th birthday! Severo Ornstein, the son of the composer, is in the studio with Amirkhanian to provide commentary, while Leo Ornstein and another near centenarian, Nicolas Slonimsky, are interviewed by phone. The discussion centers on Ornstein's early history as a Wunderkind pianist in the 1910s, and his enormous output of music over nine decades of composing. Slonimsky details a recent revival of Ornstein's music in his native Russia and Severo talks of his efforts to get Ornstein's music back into print. Note: “The Poem for Flute & Piano” was recorded November 7, 1988, at a San Francisco Contemporary Music Players concert.

5. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Leo Ornstein: An 88th Birthday Tribute [6.285% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Leo Ornstein: An 88th Birthday Tribute Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 133 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Charles Amirkhanian celebrates the 88th birthday of American composer Leo Ornstein with a special program devoted to his music. Born in Kremenchug Russia, on December 11, 1892, (or Dec. 2, 1893) he moved to the United States in 1907. His antics as a pianist, including his introducing to concert audiences around 1910 a brand of composing previously unknown, brought him a reputation as a fiery radical of the keyboard. His experiments in percussive sonorities and dissonance presaged those of Bartok, Cowell, and Antheil. But by 1927 he had retired due to nervous exhaustion brought on by an overwhelming concert schedule. He later founded a music school in Philadelphia bearing his own name and taught such future notables as Berkeley, California composer Andrew Imbrie. At the time of this program he continued to compose...

In this program, Charles Amirkhanian takes a look at the career of this remarkable path-breaking musician whose early piano compositions, and performances of the most radical European composers of the day, shocked audiences throughout the U. S. in the period from 1912 to 1915. Included are several of his piano works performed by Michael Sellers and Martha Anne Verbit, as well as two chamber works, and an orchestral work featuring the Louisville Orchestra. Amirkhanian also interviews the 95 year old composer over the phone from his home, during which Ornstein discusses the loss of his wife two years previously, his then current effort...
7. radiOM.org - Michael Sellers Plays the Music of Dane Rudhyar and Leo Ornstein [6.270% Popularity: 0.00000]
Michael Sellers Plays the Music of Dane Rudhyar and Leo Ornstein Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 73 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Although any collaborative documentation is missing, and the identification of the compositions attributed to Dane Rudhyar is somewhat tentative, this does appear to be a concert of works by Rudhyar and Leo Ornstein as performed by pianist Michael Sellers. The concert took place in 1972, and is quite likely the KPFA sponsored concert held on March 5, 1972 at the Live Oak Theater in Berkeley California. In addition to what seems to be performances of Rudhyar’s “Granites,” “Pentagram No. 3,” and “Syntony,” two works by Leo Ornstein are also heard, “Poems of 1917” and “Wild Men's Dance” or “Danse Sauvage.” Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: Granites (1929) / Dane Rudhyar -- Pentagram No. 3 “The Release”: No. 1 Gates (3:03) ; No. 2 Gift of blood (1:45) ; No. 3 Pentecost (1:04) ; No. 4 Stars (3:09) ; No. 5 Sunburst (2:11) (1...

Other Minds Festival: OM 8, Concert 2: 07 Video of “Morning in the Woods” by Leo Ornstein View Item Type: Video Duration: 8 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) In tribute to Leo Ornstein, who passed away at the age of 108 or 109, just a couple of weeks prior this OM 8 concert held on March 8, 2002, pianist Sarah Cahill added this selection to the end of that evening’s program. “Morning in the Woods” was composed in 1971. The composer’s wife recalls that the piece was composed “in our New Hampshire hideaway, deep in the woods on the edge of the large wilderness.” It is typical of a vast number of compositions Ornstein wrote in his seventies and eighties: tonal, lush, and luxurious. “He particularly loved that piece,” say the composer’s son, Severo Ornstein, “although his disdain for sentimentalism was boundless, so was his love of good solid romanticism.” A piano prodigy from an early age, Ornstein studied at the St. Petersburg Conservatory under Alexander G...
9. radiOM.org - Radiovisions #2: Elder Statesmen of American Music [5.087% Popularity: 0.00000]
Radiovisions: #2: Elder Statesmen of American Music Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 59 min Event Type: Documentary Program Origin: NPR Additional Media Files (click to view) This program on the Elder Statesmen of American Music focuses on Ernst Bacon, Otto Luening, Leo Ornstein, Dane Rudhyar, Nicholas Slonimsky, and Virgil Thomson. Each of these octogenarians began their careers when no recognizable American classical music existed. Each of them, (as of 1981), was still actively working on their craft. All have, in their individual ways, advanced the cause of modern American music. Producer Charles Amirkhanian traveled the country to collect materials for audio portraits of these "Elder Statesmen: in their own words and music". Musical Selections: Ionisation [excerpt] (1929-31) / Edgard Varèse -- Studies in Black & White [excerpts] / Nicolas Slonimsky -- Wild Man's Dance (ca. 1913) / Leo Ornstein -- Echo Primitif [from “9 Arabesques”] (ca. 1920) / Leo Ornstein -- Pentagrams Book III: Gates (1924-2...
