Hi Bethany and aficionados!

Reading about Ernst Bacon on the Wiki as the next piece comes on: "Sometimes compared with Béla Bartók..." Howdy Bethany and classy listeners.

vynil!
Avatar 8:32pm Bethany Ryker:

Actually, the $20 MVP ;)
  8:33pm P-90:

20 bucks?! was that the total budget?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Matt from Springfield:

Scriabin!

Avatar 8:36pm Bethany Ryker:

That was the budget. Great lot, eh?
Avatar 8:36pm Droll:

. o O ( Any butcher is fine, as long as it's not "vinyls" )

P-90, $20 will buy a bunch of classical albums! It's difficult to sell classical, most stores won't even take it. Prices and LP condition are typically VG or VG+.
Avatar 8:37pm Bethany Ryker:

@fleep - I read that too, *after* thinking the two would match well aesthetically. The wiki abides!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Evening, P-90!
Avatar 8:40pm ranjit:

i like saying "scriabin"
Avatar 8:41pm t_J:

and now the tour .. much better :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@ranjit: As do I! Listening to him, too.
  Swag For Life Member 8:44pm 12539:

Now all we need is some people who like *performing* Scriabin. Luckily, there's a Symphony on nearby vinyl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Matt from Springfield:

@12539: Approach maestroso on that, next time we see him :)
Avatar 8:46pm Bethany Ryker:

I do recommend hunting down Kurt Gottschalk at the record fair and commissioning him to buy records for you. Best personal shopper ever.

what color do you all think about listening to this one?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...beautiful performance these New Yoirkers w/ this Dimitri fellow...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Matt from Springfield:

@n a: Sea green, unusually enough. Notwithstanding the title, this could work both as the birth of fire, or as an undersea voyage.

BBQ sauce
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@Bethany: Softer tones, a drama is present in the symphony; not quite roaring but strongly simmering in the arrangement..
  8:55pm mike east:

I can totally see an undersea voyage in this. Something very adventurous about it
  8:56pm P-90:

This show BADLY needs another hour
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Color projections! Certainly influences how we would hear a piece.

@Mike: Yes, agree!
@P-90: Night People fill-in!! A natural choice! Or, a 3 hour fill-in sometime this summer!
  Swag For Life Member 8:58pm 12539:

Time has flown.
Thanks, Bethany.
And thanks to Kurt as well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Many thanks Bethany for another amazing show! Scriabin is a rare treat, definitely could use more airplay!

Have a good night everyone!
  8:59pm Faye:

I love this program!
Avatar 9:00pm Bethany Ryker:

Avatar 9:00pm Ed in Scotchland:

Thoroughly enjoyable show to take me into 2am, and one I need to catch live more often.
