A Concert of Contemporary Piano Music for Four Hands (April 17, 1963) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 36 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Recorded at Hertz Hall, on the campus of the University of California in Berkeley, a concert of contemporary piano music, the majority of which is for piano four hands. The concert begins with Judith Ann McGrew performing Peter Winkler’s “Seven Short Pieces,” a 1960 composition for solo piano. This is followed by Winkler, joined by Douglas Leedy in a performance of Erik Satie’s “Aperçus Désagréables.” Another piano duet, “Pieces for Joan Gallegos” then follows, with its composer, John Thomas, being joined by Leedy at the piano. It is then Leedy’s turn to demonstrate his composition prowess, as both Winkler and Thomas present his “Pieces,” also scored for piano four hands. The concert finally concludes with the better known, “Three Easy Pieces” by Igor Stravinsky, performed by McGrew and Winkler. Musical Selections: Seven Short Pieces, for piano (1962) ...
2. radiOM.org - The Piano Music of Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji [7.236% Popularity: 0.00000]
The Piano Music of Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 140 min Event Type: Documentary Program Origin: WNCN Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji was a British born composer, pianist, and author who wrote some of the longest and most difficult to perform works for the piano ever composed. Although a 20th century composer, his works have more in common with the elaborate counterpoint of Bach than with the modern compositions of his contemporaries, such as Cage, Antheil, or Schoenberg. His compositions were so difficult to play that he actually forbid public performance of them for decades, so as to avoid them from being performed by pianists who were not up to the task. As a result very few people had an opportunity to hear his compositions, and he never attained the renown that he otherwise deserved. Not that this seemed to bother him too much, nor did it stop him from continuing to produce such masterworks. He is considered by many to be one of the 20th century’s legendary composers a...
3. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 11, Blitzstein Centenary Celebration Program, part 1 “Piano Percussion Music" [7.072% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 11, Blitzstein Centenary Celebration Program, part 1 “Piano Percussion Music" Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 13 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds “Piano Percussion Music” is a grandly scaled work that is a neglected and unpublished masterpiece of the late 1920s. Written for a League of Composers concert in New York, it is in three movements: Toccata, Air, and Rondino. The first movement, a Presto marked martellato (hammered) includes a subito pianissimo ending that Eric Gordon remarks is suggestive of "the sound of a marimba. The second movement, Air, differs greatly, a noble, Purcellian confection with trills and sixteenth-note ornamentation, its meter switching between 4/4 and 5/4." In the final movement the pianist is called on to slam the keyboard cover four times. The idea was suggested by a work of Stefan Wolpe's that Blitzstein heard in Berlin with, as he wrote, the "very last note being the closing of the piano, as though putting the final stamp on...

9. radiOM.org - Selected Writings and Music of Erik Satie [6.243% Popularity: 0.00000]
Selected Writings and Music of Erik Satie Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 58 min Event Type: Documentary Program Origin: KPFA A program first broadcast in 1968 featuring Howard Hersh reading excerpts from the collected writings of French composer and pianist Erik Satie. The selections, which seem to be taken from assorted lectures, essays, and perhaps diary entries are both whimsical and enlightening. Subjects vary from his love for cabbage soup (only surpassed by his love of his mother); a schedule of activities; a list of his preferred diet (only white foods); comments on the education system of France; as well as the admission that he never married for a fear of being cuckold and the belief that no woman could understand him. In the second half of the program we hear Satie’s comments on critics and animals; ruminates on his heritage and lifestyle; as well as a description of the purpose of furniture music. Satie was known to be a bit of an eccentric and these brief insights from his own pen do ...

Morning Concert: The Music of Leonard Rosenman Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 129 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian talks with composer Leonard Rosenman of Los Angeles about his work as a composer of concert music and motion picture scores. 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. His first program, with composer Roger Sessions, was heard during the early months of the station's existence and was followed by programs with Ernst Krenek, Darius Milhaud, Henry Cowell and numerous other luminaries. Today, Rosenman is famous for his work as a film and television composer. After leaving KPFA in 1952 and heading for the East Coast and Europe, he returned in 1954 to Hollywood where he scored the soundtracks for “East of Eden” and ...
