Good evening, Bethany. Have been looking forward to this evening's program and what you made of our comments last week. ;)
Avatar Mon. 1/30/12 8:09pm bethany:

Hello all! Glad you are out there. Lots of notes tonight! Short ones at that!
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:17pm Ken From Hyde Park:

There was a kind of heavy metal documentary on VH-1 and they mentioned some bands from Germany, Finland & Scandinavia that incorporate some classical music into their songs.
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:19pm rick in sc:

Lovin' your show!
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:22pm Skirkie:

The nut?
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:22pm T-Zero:

Where you groping for the word "bridge"?
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:23pm other david:

tuned in and enjoying muchly :)
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:25pm A listener:

Wait - we're going to hear Frank Bridge? Perhaps the two bridges canceled each other out and that's why the word was not available to Bethany.
Avatar Mon. 1/30/12 8:27pm bethany:

I like that idea. Thank you for the assist!!
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:30pm T-Zero:

Happens to us all... the mind going blank... ;)
Avatar Mon. 1/30/12 8:33pm bethany:

T-Zero, except we're wrong, I knew it wasn't bridge...it was the FINGERBOARD! Damn! Too many bridges...two in that set!
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:35pm T-Zero:

Ahhh. Sorry! But I've already forgotten now why you were talking about it lol... all I remember is something about him tuning ...
Avatar Mon. 1/30/12 8:35pm bethany:

The 'Bartok' Pizzicato is plucked so hard it slaps against the fingerboard.

Next time I'll do better on my book report.
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:37pm Patron X:

Turning off my phone now...
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:37pm T-Zero:

Ahhhhh. That's right! And the bridge wouldn't have much to do with tuning anyway (so I was wrong all the way round, sorry), as that would be more the pegs, wouldn't it?
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:38pm T-Zero:

@Patron X: lol
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:40pm T-Zero:

Ohhhh, Peter Sculthorpe... I like!
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:41pm listener gary:

Var. on a theme by Frank Bridge is one of my all time favorites. Many thanks...
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:42pm a different listener:

nice transition from Mahler to Schulthorpe, whoever he is. was looking for professor dum dum archives, but might have to stay with this show a while
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:43pm T-Zero:

Unless this is a different person, Sculthorpe is Australian
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:46pm G:

Sculthorpe (no ch)...

wikipedia: Peter Joshua Sculthorpe AO OBE (born 29 April 1929) is an Australian composer. Much of his music has resulted from an interest in the music of Australia's neighbours as well as from the impulse to bring together aspects of native Australian music with that of the heritage of the West. He is known primarily for his orchestral and chamber music, such as Kakadu (1988) and Earth Cry (1986), which evoke the sounds and feeling of the Australian bushland and outback. He has also written 17 string quartets, using unusual timbral effects, works for piano, and two operas.
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:49pm a different listener:

go figure. the wikipedia editorial board allowed the entry for Sculthorpe, but decided that Glenn Jones didn't merit his own entry.
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:52pm T-Zero:

Whoa... These piano piceces... not good after too much coffee... lol
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:52pm G:

Sculthorpe might really be Australia's best-known living classical composer. He's pretty encyclopedia-worthy.
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:53pm T-Zero:

@Bethany... in all seriousness, thanks a lot for the program. It's been great, if as usual all too brief.
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:53pm Emperor Joseph:

Too many notes and not enough time.
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:54pm mrmucho:

Great set, Bethany. This show is making Mondays tolerable.
Avatar Mon. 1/30/12 8:54pm bethany:

2 points of for spelling! I need an engineer, a playlist database administer and another 2 hours ;)
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:56pm 12539:

(Speaking of spelling, isn't it Ernesto Lecuona?)

A most marvelous hour.
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:58pm Drewtube:

Quite the out of body experience to hear Ravel while walking into The Living Room! Great to hear you once more!
  Mon. 1/30/12 8:59pm a different listener:

glad i stumbled in here! long time caller, first time listener, or something like that. didn't know there was a show like this hidden on this here station.
  Mon. 1/30/12 9:00pm 12539:

Spelling is irrelevant on the radio.
  Mon. 1/30/12 9:01pm Skirkie:

Yes, a show with just 2 or 3 pieces would be equally great.
  Wed. 2/15/12 12:14pm Paul H:

Peter 'Shoolthorp'? Must be 'Skullthorpe' surely. That's the way I've always heard it before, anyway. Great to have you back, Bethany. Shame I've only just found out - 2011 could have been so much better! Never thought I'd hear you playing tracks by Beethoven, but where you go I will follow.
