6. radiOM.org - Holy, Holy, Holy: Antheil's Magic Lacunae [5.064% Popularity: 0.00000]
Holy, Holy, Holy: Antheil's Magic Lacunae Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 56 min Event Type: Documentary Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) On April 10, 1927, George Antheil's Ballet Mécanique, scored for multiple pianos and percussion (including airplane propellers and electric doorbells) was given its American premiere at Carnegie Hall. An exciting discovery by Mrs. George Antheil of Los Angeles and KPFA's Charles Amirkhanian sheds extraordinary light on the genius of Antheil's early music. Gathering dust on the shelves of Mrs. Antheil's archives has been a set of three player piano rolls of the Ballet Mécanique in its original longer version (longer than the 1953 revised version which is best-known and runs only about 17 minutes in performance). This document, realized mechanically by the Pleyela Company to Antheil's carefully notated specifications, conforms to the original 1924 version of the work and contains evidence of a musicologically significant rediscovery. Ant...
7. radiOM.org - American Mavericks My Lunch with Mel Powell: An American Musical Feast [5.031% Popularity: 0.00000]
American Mavericks: My Lunch with Mel Powell: An American Musical Feast Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 59 min Event Type: Documentary Program Origin: KUSC Mel Powell could probably never have been anything but an American. He was a marvelous talker, a consummate raconteur with a sonorous storyteller's voice to make the tales more mesmerizing. He grew up in a building that overlooked Yankee Stadium. He even gave up baseball to save his thumbs for the piano. He played jazz, very well but very briefly. It’s been said that no jazz musician of comparable stature has ever had such a short career as Powell, because, in a very American way, he became weary of playing the same tune night after night with the Benny Goodman Band. First he tried Hollywood, and spent some time composing for MGM movies. Then he made a major change: he shipped himself off to Yale to study with Paul Hindemith. With this act, he not only started a new career as a classical composer, but also became an educator: one so dedicated t...
