M. Chopin always welcome to hear! Especially on drizzly evenings...

Good evening Bethany! And Stochastic 440ers!
  Mon. 4/28/14 8:04pm 12539:

Will there be Shostakovich?
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:05pm JakeGould:

Hey, I asked for Chopin a few weeks back! Thanks!
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:06pm Bethany Ryker:

There will definitely be Shostakovich, as we go around the circle of 5ths and relative minor keys. I placed it prominently!
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:07pm Rectitude:

aHHHH EVEning ........
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Kabalevsky--I haven't heard of him before, so that's another new lead for me from this show!

Circle those 5ths, surround them.
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:08pm ranjit:

prelude overload!
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:08pm maestroso:

Played some Kabalevsky back in my piano study days. Not this one though, holy smokes!

Cool, maestroso.
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Ashkenazy! Make sure to annotate that one.

Feel like I'm in a WFMU *Twilight Zone* moment....
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:18pm maestroso:

Speaking of Shostakovich, Keith Jarrett's treatment of the preludes and fugues is totally wonderful...
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:18pm fleep:

@Rec A pun. There was a play and a movie. I gave myself a time out and I'm in my room.
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:20pm Rectitude:

Hi fleep

"24 - returns! ... to WFMU!..."

Hello, Bethany and A440ers
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi doca!
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:26pm Bethany Ryker:

This one by Karayev has to be the oddest, I love it
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:26pm fleep:

Howdy Rec and gathered appreciators of the finer tings. And Bethany.
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Gotta prelude how ya feel, man...
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:31pm earrie:

I missed the beginning. Er, it's a circle so.. ?
Archive re-beginnings later, perhaps set on 'loop'
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:31pm Bethany Ryker:

Kept C major as the longest and most simple of the bunch. Couldn't stop listening to this one late at night.
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:34pm Matt from Springfield:

C major is the chord of Western civilization! Even if that's because I've been biased towards that through modern tuning, it is the most "beautiful" of the chords!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/28/14 8:36pm TR In MI:

Wow. That was beautiful. I don't think I've heard of Alkan before, will be seeking out more of him.
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:38pm maestroso:

That Shostakovich piece, with the fugue, was so much fun to play... haven't done it in years, must go back to it.
  Mon. 4/28/14 8:44pm gregg:

@earrie circle of fifths is a musical key thing: FCGDAEB
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:45pm Matt from Springfield:

You could certainly do the 24 different composers, though you can't just play them in any order -- I like your sequencing and flow from one to another.
  Mon. 4/28/14 8:45pm mk:

This show is amazing! Thank you! I'm a classical pianist and I can't tell you the joy it's given me to stumble upon this.
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, thanks Bethany for annotating Ashkenazy as a pianist!
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:54pm maestroso:

Thank you Bethany! Only an hour so undivided attention is required for total enjoyment and musical education. Wonderful show.
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey, I've heard this Rachmaninoff Prelude before! Great choice.
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:55pm Matt from Springfield:

@maestroso: I agree! I love that Bethany brings the WFMU treatment to Classical music, shining light on obscure, wonderful pieces and composers.
  Mon. 4/28/14 8:56pm 12539:

Well that flew by.
Thanks as ever, Bethany.
  Mon. 4/28/14 8:57pm mk:

Who's the pianist on the Rachmaninoff?
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:57pm northguineahills:

Thanks Bethany. Enjoyed the theme and the results!
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:58pm earrie:

Thanks @gregg. Yep. I know- though not tonnes. Piano started me at me C decades ago. And F came in like a pop fly from left field after G or maybe after D?
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 8:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Many thanks Bethany!
Always a pleasure here! Have a good night, everyone!
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 9:00pm Rectitude:

Same what matt said
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 9:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow--happy anniversary, Bethany's parents!
Avatar Mon. 4/28/14 9:02pm Bethany Ryker:

You guys are the best! Thank you for tuning in. Back soon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/28/14 9:07pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Zats...missed the show. We were outside.
Avatar Thu. 1/8/15 8:35am DJ Stashu:

I miss you! Please come back :) I miss you AND your show too. Do you have a little dog named Toto? Because if you do, I miss him too.
