1. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 8, Concert 2: 01 “Sonata for Harpsichord” by Lou Harrison [6.253% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 8, Concert 2: 01 “Sonata for Harpsichord” by Lou Harrison Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 10 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) Lou Harrison's output of solo keyboard music spans his entire career, with some works he now prefers on harpsichord originally designated ‘for keyboard,' ‘for cembalo,' ‘for piano or harpsichord,' ‘for piano,' or even ‘for tack piano' (used also in mid-century as a harpsichord substitute). The opportunity to perform these works on various early keyboard instruments gives rise to creative solutions, for example, in tempo and idiomatic ornamentation. Beyond this, the attack and decay characteristics of each instrument subtly suggest which historic or occasional temperament will best support the structure and affect of each piece. “Sonata for Harpsichord” was composed by Harrison for Linda Burman-Hall to play on the eve of 2000. It offers three contrasting moods based on modal scales: a bustling, ...

The program begins with Harrison providing a brief biographical sketch of his life in which he describes being born in Oregon and how he then moved with his family to Northern California, and his subsequent self-identification as a San Francisco Bay Area composer.

10. radiOM.org - Comparatively Speaking Transcriptions of Bach’s Chorales & Sonatas [0.375% Popularity: 0.00000]
Comparatively Speaking: Transcriptions of Bach’s Chorales & Sonatas Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 65 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Originally broadcast in February 1980, Matthew Holdreith presents another program in his Comparatively Speaking series, in which he examines various transcriptions of the works of Johann Sebastian Bach. In this recording, a number of Bach’s chorale preludes, fugues, and organ sonatas are presented in their original form, juxtaposed with some of the more famous arrangements of those same works, by a variety of composers, conductors, and musicians. Ranging from the elegantly reverential piano transcriptions of Myra Hess, Ferruccio Busoni, and Egon Petri, to the much reviled bombastic orchestral interpretations of Leopold Stokowski, and the delightful yet perhaps inappropriately airy arrangements by Mozart, these recordings are a testimony to the inspiration that the imaginative versatility of the Baroque master has provided to those that have...
