The Creation

We hold the Universe in the palms of our hands.

 

This show is all about creation — from the grand scale to the tiny, from the universe to three babies who have joined us in this life to navigate the joys and sorrows of this world.

First, The Creation, which holds a special place in my heart. The Heavens Are Telling (about 40 minutes into the show) was the introduction for me to singing in a choir. I think it was my first day of high school, fall of 1986. I had never sung in a mixed choir before, and came in to this in the choir room, and the guy who sang the bass part was the now well-known Eric Owens. He was a senior when I was a freshman. It was as if the heavens had indeed opened up and showed me the glory that choral music could be.

And oh! how out of breath you are at the end of it!

Second, in honor of the babies that have been born in the last week to my circle of friends: Jessica’s Emma in Virginia; Lauren’s grandson Hayden in Ohio; and the as-of-yet unnamed daughter of Sara in Palo Alto — Eric Whitacre’s Lux Aurumque. The text is this:

Light, warm and heavy as pure gold,
And the angels sing softly
to the newborn babe.

Congratulations, and enjoy the show!

Rebecca Miller and Danny Driver (photo: Kathy Anderson / The Times-Picayune)

Tonight we welcome conductor Rebecca Miller and pianist Danny Driver to the studio to talk about, among other things, the music of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. Both artists have performed and released distinguished recordings (symphonies and keyboard sonatas respectively) by this celebrated son of Johann Sebastian (much more famous in his lifetime than his now more famous father was in his).

Serendipity, Strings, and Suggestible Me

The two chamber works for strings featured on the show are pieces I just happened to hear a few enticing seconds of on two different television programs, the British detective series on ITV, Inspector Morse, and Pacifica Radio‘s Democracy Now!, which airs 9:00 AM weekday mornings here on KUSP. Neither composition was in my collection, so I went out and bought both.

 Morse-Brahms Sextet 3_adj

A few measures of the 2nd movement, Andante, ma moderato (theme and variations), of String Sextet No. 1 in B-flat major, op. 18, by Johannes Brahms are heard on the episode of Inspector Morse called The Day of the Devil, featuring the late Richard Griffiths, best known for his portrayal of the unpleasant uncle of Harry Potter, Vernon Dursley. This was a particularly odd episode, I thought, about a serial murderer who worships the devil.  (The IMDB link for this episode allows you to stream the whole episode, if you like.)

Morse-Day of the Devil_adj

The other snippet that caught my attention was from the 4th movement, Adagio, Allegro, of Mozart’s String Quintet In G Minor, K 516, which was used as bumper music following a fascinating and informative segment on Democracy Now! last Thursday (3/12/2015) called Ex-U.S. Official: With Iran Letter, “Reckless” GOP Places Middle East Hegemony over Security.

 
Democracy Now Mozart_smDemocracy Now Mozart 2_smDemocracy Now Mozart 3_sm

 

I hope you enjoy hearing these wonderful compositions by Mozart and Brahms in their entirety. The chances of coming across pleasing classical music on Inspector Morse are immeasurably greater than hearing such on Democracy Now!, which only enhanced my delight of discovery by way of the latter.

Venture into Light: Solo Resurrection

 

Venture Into Light, by Lance Green

This show was somehow difficult for me to put together. It definitely had an arc, and dealt with the death and loss that must happen before a resurrection can occur.

Early spring always brings to me a sense of loss. I have never really understood why. Why, when the birds are returning and the trees are blossoming, do I grieve the loss of the winter?

But even letting go of something painful involves a certain amount of grief. There may be relief, but there is also letting go of the way things were. Maybe that’s why early spring is difficult.

 

The program began with an exploration of solo instruments, including Brahms’ transcription of J.S. Bach’s Chaconne for left-handed piano, and then gradually morphed into an expression of grief, through Schubert’s Stabat Mater. At that point, we listened to a number of choral works, specifically Eric Whitacre’s When David Heard, which to me, is the ultimate expression of the raw grief that one feels when facing the loss of a loved one. It was written upon the death of a friend’s son in a car accident.

The program finished with some pieces to heal, including Tomás Luis de Victoria’s O Sacrum Convivium and Patricia Van Ness’ Cor meum est templum sacrum.

 

The link to the playlist for the show is here.

Cellists and Pianists

Oh, there was a sprinkling of trumpet, flute, and violin here and there, and a short but large choral piece by Schubert, but my hankering for cello and piano was much in evidence. There was also some duality and tension with the Baroque and the Romantic going on there. That’s my pop psychology summing up of the show.

The meat of the program was Jacqueline Du Pré and Daniel Barenboim’s rousing performance of Cesar Franck’s masterpiece (Sonata in A-Flat Major, originally composed for violin and piano, but often performed in arrangements for cello or flute and other instruments in place of the violin.)

As I listened, the arrival of the final movement, its theme presented in the form of a sweet canon, brought me palpable relief  following the dramatic intensity of what came before.

This comes from a 6-disc collection of Du Pré recordings on EMI is called Les Introuvables de Jacqueline Du Pré. For years I didn’t know what les introuvables meant. Apparently it means the ungetables? There must be a less ungainly English word for it, but to my brain ce mot is introuvable. What remains a mystery is how EMI actually did get them (the recordings comprising this anthology, that is).
