Between the Keys January 16th/All Beethoven Part 3

Jan 16, 2018

For the third of five programs this month surveying Beethoven's last five piano sonatas, The Classical Network's Artist-in-Residence Jed Distler explores the composer's beloved Sonata No. 30 in E Major Op. 109, with a classic 1953 recording by Dame Myra Hess. Also featured are Beethoven performances by Constance Keene, Wilhelm Kempff and Stephen Kovacevich.

Listen to Between the Keys on Tuesday January 16th at 10:00 PM, with a rebroadcast on Monday January 22nd at noon

Sunday evening (1-14) at 11 we'll hear The Fibonacci Sequence in Alan Rawsthorne's Suite for Flute, Viola & Harp.  Also: the piano concerto, "The Circle & the Child" by Philip Lasser and "Dream of a Hundred Flowers" by Fang Man.  Music from the past century on Half Past. 

Cabinets of curiosities, also sometimes referred to as “wonder rooms,” were small collections of extraordinary objects, strange and often fanciful precursors of today’s museums, which attempted to categorize and explain oddities of the natural world.  We’ll hear three examples of musical equivalents: Dmitri Tymoczko's “Typecase Treasury,” Michael Colina’s Violin Concerto “Three Cabinets of Wonder,” and a selection from Robert Moran’s “Cabinet of Curiosities.”  Satisfy your curiosity, this Sunday at 10 pm. 

Elvida is one of Gaetano Donizetti's long neglected operas. (He  wrote seventy or so operas, and if some of them were not neglected, we would hear almost nothing but Donizetti's operas.) Some critics think that his early Elvida has earned its obscurity. According to one, for example, it's often light music does not match the dark plot of the heroine held hostage, thrown into a dungeon, and saved from being murdered at the last minute possible.

Host: Dr. Amanda Quist

It's the music of Guillaume Machaut on Friday's Distant Mirror with a selection of rondos, ballades and virelai  performed by Fortune's Wheel from their cd Pastourelle: The Art of Machaut and the Trouveres. Then Matthew Brook sings/recites  Machaut's "Le Layde bonne esperance" from Le Voir Dit.  Join Allan Kelly at 10 pm. 

Take flight with music from movies about airports and airplanes, including “The V.I.P.s” (Miklos Rozsa), “The Terminal” (John Williams), “Airport” (Alfred Newman), and “North by Northwest” (Bernard Herrmann).  Join us for departure this Friday at 6 pm.
