Avatar 8:31pm A442:

Was listening in the car driving home from, yes, a weekend getaway. Didn't want to get out for fear that I'd miss something. Apparently not. Love the show.
  8:32pm seph:

I didn't doubt you for a second actually...
Avatar 8:32pm bethany:

Curious if anyone knows what this is - if it's familiar or not...?
  8:34pm giraffe-o:

Sounds Barberesque...
Avatar 8:34pm j4ff:

First time I've heard it. I triple the wow
  8:34pm the glowing one:

sounds like film music
  8:36pm allen:

  8:36pm G:

  8:38pm Jon6v6:

I think this is Scarlatti's Stabat Mater
  8:38pm rick:

I got fm crackle on it like an old record, like allen's guess w/ Gorecki, but don't know!
  8:39pm giraffe-o:

Now I need to know what the next one is, with the string quartet... Telemann ;) ?
  8:42pm rick:

Finland is known for its dangerous vodka... my g'parents are from there....
Avatar 8:53pm j4ff:

Yeah, um, Rick...I think you should take that name calling somewhere else.
Avatar 8:56pm bethany:

No offense. I'm just curious what was so anger inducing. Probably that I played the Arensky movements out of order, right? Gets me in trouble all the time.
  8:58pm rick:

Deep apologies. Was teasing but badly done. It was meant with genuine affection.
  9:00pm yad:

who is the composer of the Arensky piece?
ignorant Dave
  9:01pm ranjit:

I'm just gonna hum "The True Wheel" along with this Sibelius for a few minutes if you don't mind...
Avatar 9:02pm Under the speaker:

You know it's good radio when blood boils over the identity of a symphony orchestra piece. Brava, Beth!
  9:02pm Ian:

Nice choices of pieces! Y'all come on back soon!
Avatar 9:05pm bethany:

Thanks everyone for tuning in, it's been fun. Hope you were able to listen to everything as loud as I was here in Studio A. Take Care!
  9:08pm G:

Itzhak drops the hammer.
  9:08pm john:

so, wait...that was Gorecki's third symphony, final movement?
  9:10pm seph:

thank you bethany!
Avatar 11:18pm bethany:

Yes, Górecki's Third Symphony. Not deterred by grumblings - it's in good humor. Will return next week to stir things up even more.
