Villa lobos always makes me think "wolf town!"

p.s. hi Bethany!
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 10/1/19 8:13pm ranjit:

without googling ... "canope" sounds like a star or constellation or something? I'm pretty sure there's a star or constellation or something with a name like that!

Cassiopeia ?

Canopus ?

So glad this show is back! Hi Scott, love "Peter Grimes."

ranjit: I think you mean the star Canopus

Googling confirms that the star Canopus is what I was thinking of!

DJ Bethany: So elated that you and SHP are back!
Had to catch the first two shows on the archive, but I’m listening live tonight and I just wanted to say I’m perfectly chuffed to see/hear you return.

Bethany I mean! I saw the mention of Scott and didn't see the date, hs!
  Tue. 10/1/19 8:27pm Dean:

Oh, damn, I forgot about this show. Am now spinning a trio by Galina Ustvolskaya (topic of a recent NYT article).
  Tue. 10/1/19 8:30pm Dean:

Ended! Now enjoying the show!

Canopus was a character in the Iliad. He worked for Menelaus, King of Sparta, whose wife was that Helen that all that trouble was about...
  Tue. 10/1/19 8:36pm Ivan:

happy birthday Vladimir Horowitz...if people understood what Horowitzs tone meant, he would be banned from the keyboard...Prokofiev and Samuel Barber loved his work...had his detractors as well...truly an unashamed romantic...your shows are mesmerizing...thank you...
  Tue. 10/1/19 8:38pm Dean:

HB, VH, indeed.

From the Fanfare review of the Rhodes Moszkowski recording, which never mentions Moszkowski (because most of the program was Bach, Beethoven, and Chopin): "Rhodes is presented as a sort of cool, yet despairing James Dean kind of artist. My kids would call him emo. There are so many photos of him in sunglasses that I thought he might be blind."
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 10/1/19 8:39pm TDK60:

..just read recently that Britten and Shostakovich were friends.
  Tue. 10/1/19 8:42pm Dean:

And Fanfare in 1996 on this Aldwell Hindemith (which I'm loving): "Right from the opening statement, Aldwell brings great imagination and insight to his performance of Ludus Tonális. One is continually reminded of Bach, but that is perfectly appropriate for this work. Few other performers find so much variety in this music; although Aldwell does not use the work as a springboard for pianistic display, as Richter does, there are moments which show that he has as high a level of digital dexterity."
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 10/1/19 8:43pm ranjit:

I'm going to imagine Britten and Shostakovich as Frog and Toad from the classic children's book "Frog and Toad are Friends" but I don't know which is which

Thanks Bethany, enjoying much
  Tue. 10/1/19 8:46pm Dean:

In his work about Britten, Michael Oliver relates an account of B praising S, to which S replied, "No, no: You great composer; I little composer."

breathtaking stuff, thanks Bethany!

Very nice pinano set, Bethany.

Hi folks!! Thanks for being here and for these bits of conversation that make me curious to explore so many things!!
  Tue. 10/1/19 8:49pm Ivan:

Im sorry the quote I used...was by William Kapell stating Horowitz being banned from the keyboard...thanks
  Tue. 10/1/19 8:53pm Dean:

I get a kick out of comparing performances of Hindemith's string quartets by Juilliard and Amar SQs.
  Tue. 10/1/19 8:55pm johnzo:

no mascot in 2020?! what is this?!
  Tue. 10/1/19 8:56pm Dean:

Do you know Ernst Toch's Geographical Fugue, probably his most popular work, not counting his Hollywood soundtracks? A friend is one of Toch's grandchildren.

Hey, @khd. I have to remind myself to "tune in" to this show.

  Tue. 10/1/19 8:59pm Dean:

Richard Meltzer used to "preserve" dead birds in jars full of jello. Are those jars of viscera?
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 10/1/19 8:59pm TDK60:

Thanks Bethany, it's great you're back.
  Tue. 10/1/19 9:00pm Dean:

This show needs at least two hours, better four.
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 10/1/19 9:00pm ranjit:

Don't have dessert at Richard Meltzer's house
  Tue. 10/1/19 9:01pm Dean:

I took Meltzer to lunch once in Southern California, and dinner in Portland, OR. He didn't order squab.
  Tue. 10/1/19 9:02pm P-90:

Thanks, DJ Bethany!
