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.

Joining moderator Charles Amirkhanian on stage were Kyle Gann, Louis Andriessen, Agata Zubel, and Janice Giteck.

His other featured work, “Kierkegaard, Walking,” was inspired by a European walking tour and an early interest in the Danish philosopher. Polish composer Agata Zubel discusses her decision to take up a second career as a classical concert singer, while also in...

On February 7, 1975 he was in Berkeley to attend a conference of college band directors and stopped by the KPFA studio to talk with KPFA Music Director Charles Amirkhanian and Charles Shere, music critic with the Oakland Tribune. The three of them discuss the phenomena of university bands and how they are a breeding ground for young and enthusiastic wind players, who should ideally have an outlet for their talent once finishing their education. The idea that a composer needs to dumb down their works in order to be played by a school band is thoroughly disputed by Husa. Husa, who was a professor of music at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, also discusses his early life in Prague, his musical influences, including Schoenberg, Webern, and Berg, as well...
