en.wikipedia.org... :
...'Alfredo entered the Conservatoire de Paris in 1896 to study piano under Louis Diémer and composition under Gabriel Fauré; in these classes, George Enescu and Maurice Ravel were among his fellow students. During his Parisian period, Claude Debussy, Igor Stravinsky, and Manuel de Falla were acquaintances, and he was in contact with Ferruccio Busoni, Gustav Mahler, and Richard Strauss as well.
Casella developed a deep admiration for Debussy's output after hearing Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune in 1898, but pursued a more romantic vein (stemming from Strauss and Mahler) in his own writing of this period, rather than turning to impressionism. His first symphony of 1905 is from this time, and it is with this work that Casella made his debut as a conductor when he led the symphony's premiere in Monte Carlo in 1908'...

Interesting to me being more familiar w/ Blues & Jazz (& Rawk) - that 'Classical' people 'rework(ed)' previous stuff in much the same way (?!)...

and a lot of composers were probably more rebellious towards life and creation than a lot of otherly musicians we found of

As I was puitting this David Diamond piece into the playlist, it popped up as something that a DJ had played in the past. I looked it up, and it was Rix (!) This set is dedicated to his memory. Without him A440 might not have come to fruition. When I was just starting out, he played more 'classical' music than anyone else, and his shows gave me the signal that it was 'ok' to go into that territory and not be afraid of souning too conventional on a station such as FMU....thanks, Rix.

or something like backstage talk: "oh, you cannot put think on that maestro playing that piece with those orchestra in that hall, can you imagine the impetus on that crazy flow of takts and ictus ?"

sorry late hour 4 me / just thought of saying hi

- Joshua Bell was recently on PBS Newshour talking about playing in subway stations (Context)
- & how Not Applauding between Movements is actually a more recent thing - & people even sometimes demanded Beethoven repeat movements in his own time !...Also interesting looking up wigkey (wiki) about Villa-Lobos - a Brazillian - the intereaction of 'Classical' (/'Academic') music & 'Folk' musics - but of course it would be - in Stravinsky (Russian) - & anybody....
