The Lost Chord: July 6

Jul 9, 2017

This week on the Lyric Stage selections from Act 3 of Richard Wagner's Die Walkure from a 1988 studio recording with Hildegarde Berhrens as Brunnhilde, Jessye Norman as Sieglinde and James Morris as Wotan. James Levine conducts the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.

Jessye Norman will also sing  "In the Still of the Night" by Cole Porter and "Spring is Here" by Rodgers and Hart. Her versions of these standards are idiosyncratic - she sings them much like she sang Wagner - but very enjoyable.

This week on Well-Tempered Baroque (Friday 11 pm), the music of Johann Kuhnau.  Johann Kuhnau (1660-1722) was a celebrated polymath,  A practicing lawyer, translator, writer, organist, singer, and above all, cantor of the St. Thomaskirche in Leipzig, where he presided over the city's music from 1701 until his death.  It was Kuhnau's high standards as a composer and director that set the bar against which Johann Sebastian Bach would be judged.  Johann Kuhnau, this week on Well-Tempered Baroque.  

Both sacred and secular music of William Byrd on this week's Distant Mirror: The Choir of Winchester Cathedral under the direction of David Hill perform Byrd's Mass for 3 Voices while Capriccio Stravagante is heard in two secular pieces-- The Leaves Be Green and a praeludium and ground. The program concludes with two ballades and a rondeaux of Guillaume Machaut from his most famous secular piece, the musical poem Le Voir Dit with Jeremy Summerley directing the Oxford Camerata.  Join Allan Kelly Friday night at 10.

Picture Perfect: July 7 - Rejected Scores

Jul 7, 2017

Rejection! Any film composer of reasonable experience has, at one time or another, had his or her music replaced.  It’s an occupational hazard.  Poor test screenings, creative differences, interpersonal difficulties and producer panic have all contributed to the rejection of original film scores.
