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 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.
