Yikes! Is A440 really going away for the summer?
Avatar 8:23pm bethany:

Hello - some of you may know that I'm living upstate in a until November (no joke!) will have to wait for the fall for the return of A440!
  8:24pm G:

Sounds good! Know anything about the replacement show for the slot?
  8:29pm emily:

I love this twinkly piece!
  8:31pm ranjit:

yeah - "twinkly" is just what i was thinking!
  8:33pm D in Miami:

That Denisov was really taking me to another state. Awesome! I just realized I have that Berg piece.
  8:33pm G:

Bach to basics!
  8:34pm 12539:

Walter Gropius and Alma Mahler's's daughter, Manon, died of polio at age 18. Berg wrote his Violin Concerto in memory of her (it is inscribed "to the memory of an angel").
  8:37pm dale:

have to be honest, i haven't heard music like this since wnyc went all talk. it sounds luscious.
  8:37pm other david:

Drat, I don't get to listen to this show live often enough, hope you'll be back on the winter schedule - best of luck with your work upstate.
  8:39pm dale:

where you headed upstate bethany? seasonality is always nice
  8:40pm seph:

bach blasting from within guest services
Avatar 8:42pm bethany:

thanks, 12539...if I had 3 hrs we'd go through the whole story including that Webern wasn't sure if he could handle the emotional side of conducting the work...
  8:48pm alas:

that's nice !! Polymorphia...
  8:49pm PoutWest:

Hey Bethany - tuned in a bit late as was seeing MIB3... but soon enough to hear you're leaving us... truly a bum deal for us but sounds like it will be interesting for you. Hope you have a really fine time up there and think of all your devoted listeners often. I have been quietly listening out here in the west and enjoying every minute of your shows... just too bad they have not been 3 hours each!... anyway, for what it's worth - thanks!

This is awesome, I feel like I'm being attacked by bees (in a good way).
Avatar 8:50pm bethany:

even after I boosted the levels on this it's very faint here at the beginning. Fear not, it gets up there.
Avatar 8:51pm j4ff:

Love this as always, Bethany.
  8:52pm Richard from Venezuela:

I'm gonna miss your show bethany. All the good wishes to you.
Avatar 8:52pm inland:

There is so much to explore after hearing your show these last months.
  8:53pm ranjit:

I'm gonna listen to all the archives again!

Avatar 8:55pm bethany:

the above (while in ALL CAPS) was said with love and tenderness...but you knew that.
  8:56pm D in Miami:

Aww, just when I was starting to find time to listen in to this fine show. At least we've got plenty of archives! Thanks, Bethany! Hope to be here next week.
  8:58pm 12539:

Eine Stunde ist nicht genug.
  9:00pm ranjit:

Whoa, i like that crackly stuff from Bridge
Avatar 9:00pm bethany:

Das stimmt, 12359, aber drei stunde sind zu viele! (This is, as a purely 'classical' show, under the guise of the one-hour music specialty shows...and I've been elated to be here!
