2. radiOM.org - Treasury of the 78's Early Recordings of Music by Béla Bartók [5.064% Popularity: 0.00000]
Treasury of the 78's: Early Recordings of Music by Béla Bartók Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program first broadcast on June 25, 1962, John Whiting presents some early 78 rpm recordings of works by Béla Bartók. Although the recordings suffer from the scratches and other distortions typical of old shellac discs, the quality and historical nature of the performances are such so as to allow for some imperfections in the recording medium. Of particular interest is Bartók’s “Concerto for Orchestra” performed by the Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam, under the direction of Eduard van Beinum, in which the scratches during the soft intro quickly give way to a robust presentation of one of Bartók’s latter orchestral masterpieces. The recording quality of the following selections of piano music is more problematic, but given that they are performed by the composer himself, who introduces each piece in his native Hungarian, make them of some historic...
3. radiOM.org - Treasury of the 78's Music for Horn [5.055% Popularity: 0.00000]
Treasury of the 78's: Music for Horn Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 62 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program first broadcast on June 12, 1962, John Whiting presents some early 78 rpm recordings of music for horn, performed by Audbry Brain and his son Dennis Brain. The first selection heard is Johannes Brahms “Trio in E-Flat Major,” for piano, horn and violin. Long recognized as one of the finest classical chamber music recordings of the early 20th century this 1934 disc features the horn playing of Audbry Brain. Audbry was a member of a talented musical family that included his father and brother, both highly respected horn players in established English orchestras, and his two sons, Leonard, who bucked family tradition by becoming an oboists of fine repute, and perhaps the most talented of them all, Dennis, who continued the family custom of horn performance until his untimely death in an automobile accident at the age of 36. It is Dennis who is featured in the second musica...
4. radiOM.org - Treasury of the 78's English Choral Music [0.484% Popularity: 0.00000]
Treasury of the 78's: English Choral Music Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 73 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program first broadcast on July 27, 1962, John Whiting presents some early 78 rpm recordings of English choir music from the 16th and 17th centuries. Works by Henry Purcell, William Croft, Thomas Tallis, William Byrd, Thomas Morley, Thomas Weelkes, Orlando Gibbons, & John Blow are performed by the choirs of New College in Oxford, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Canterbury Cathedral, and King’s College. Most of these works feature arrangements by Edmund Horace Fellowes. Although these are early recordings and are at times a little scratchy, the music is of high enough quality to make all such distractions inconsequential to anyone interested in the best of early English Church Music. The added commentary by Whiting provides historical context on each composer, making the entire listening experience as informative as it is enjoyable. Musical Selections: Remember Not, Lord, Our Offen...
