We listen to some of the coolest works of this Krazyszy Polish compozszer.
The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra is coming to Athens day after tomorrow (November 5th) to play at the Hugh Hodgson concert hall. I play the works that they’ll be playing… you can use this either to prep for the concert, enjoy the concert from the comfort of your own home, or kick yourself that you missed the concert.
Find out that that tune that you hear all over the place, but never knew where it came from, is really a 14th century Gregorian chant! Fire and Brimstone awaits! Happy Halloween!
I betray how much of a Beethoven fanboy I am by playing the most famous Beethoven symphony and a “minor” work by him (even though the most minor work by Beethoven is as important as many composers major works). I LOVE BEETHOVEN!!!
4 really awesome piano concertos, ranging from one of the first back from 1785, to an ultra-modern concerto for two solo pianos.
Here’s an episode with all of YOUR wonderful requests!
Tune in to the first hour of this post to hear a few scenes from Philip Glass’ 1976 minimalist opera “Einstein on the Beach!” It’s pretty ridiclous! After that is an interview with Heather McIntosh from local band Circulatory System where she talks about the upcoming Faust show!
Today we hear pieces that experiment with their form. Click the link below to hear a sonata that’s both in one movement and four movements, an entire orchestra used as a solo instrument, and a piano concerto that puts the finale at the beginning!! WHAAAAAA?
Today we listen to two of my favorite symphonies ever, and they just so happen to be closely related. Click the button below to hear why one of the most obnoxiously overused symphonies is worthwhile, an inversion of that symphony, as well as why this composer might have gotten cholera from the fecal-oral route!
