Greetings, Bethany
  8:08pm Mrs P:

What a wonderful piece. I want to learn more about Benjamin Britten now.
Avatar 8:10pm Bethany Ryker:

Greetings everyone! I hope this 'tempestuous' programming finds you on an otherwise quiet evening!
Avatar 8:11pm doca:

Hi, Bethany, hi, people! I love those crazy french composers from the eighteenth century
Avatar 8:12pm Bethany Ryker:

@Mrs P - definitely check out the other Sea Interludes and for something unusual and beautiful, listen to the Serenatde for Horn, Tenor and Strings
  8:12pm Mrs P:

Greeting to you too Bethany. All pot stirrers tonight? Welcome back.

Hi doca, P-90, Tome, and 12539
  Swag For Life Member 8:14pm 12539:

Is that your puppy, Bethany?
Avatar 8:16pm Bethany Ryker:

That is SKITTLES. He was my childhood pet. Yep, that's right. I named him Skittles. I was 9!!
Avatar 8:19pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...my last name is 'Basso'
...well - it's *almost* a good thing *here*...
  Swag For Life Member 8:24pm 12539:

Skittles is a happy name.

Today I was pleasantly surprised at receiving my Underwater Dog t-shirt. I think it's the first time I received a premium before the marathon was over.
Avatar 8:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...hadda listen to some Cream in honor of Jack Bruce ( - hey - sue me.) - & this set actually makes a good transition...HolyCrow ! This pianist !!...
  8:27pm Rynac:

I've never been known as a techno-savvy, but tonight is a first. I'm listening via the WFMU Android app and have connected my phone to an external speaker system. Concert hall in a phone -sounds much better than computer speakers.
  8:27pm Mrs P:

I still miss the Vicki and Bethany lineup. Is anybody at WFMU in touch with her? So happy to have Bethany here still with her musical treasures and wisdom.

I'm going to get the Four Seascapes on my IPod as soon as your program is over.
Avatar 8:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- good speakers is the easiest Upgrade on yer sound, wouldn't you say?
...DIY to 440 was pretty great...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Matt from Springfield in Germany:

Hooray for Sibelius! And all these tempest tunes!

Hello Bethany and A440ers!
Avatar 8:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Hey Matt! Where ya been? Oh - Germany.
...To be Schooled by Bethany w/ such unfailingly tasty selections is indeed a wonderful thing. Appreciated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Matt from Springfield in Germany:

@RRN63 8:19: For this program(me), you can be "Bass in the Key of O"!
Avatar 8:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Basso Profundo or Absurdo - I've never been quite sure...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Matt from Springfield in Germany:

Deutschland, and Polska! A new appreciation for *Central* Europe...I want to visit Austria and Czech/Bohemia sometime!

I always thought the profound and the absurd were kinda similar...
  8:43pm Mrs P:

Hello Matt. I hope you are having a wonderful trip. My husband and I visited Berlin this past May and still talk about it with reverence. How nice of you to stay up late to listen with us!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Matt from Springfield in Germany:

Thanks Mrs. P! (Although, I flew back to the USA on Saturday ;) Still, I enjoyed Berlin so much, and felt disappointed I couldn't make it to Potsdam. A good trip should immediately give you ideas upon leaving what to see the *next* time you return! :)
Avatar 8:46pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...is it ignorant to say I'm put in mind of 'Night on Bald Mountain' ? I have a new idea of what Strauss is about !...
  8:47pm Todd:

Fucking great show. I used to run a comic store in Brooklyn Height's, and I always insisted on a performance when any of the St. Ann's kids came in with an instrument. One rosy cat took out his French horn and played a haunting Sibelius piece evoking the arctic
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Matt from Springfield in Germany:

@Todd: What a cool (or should I say *cold*) cat! How lovely to suddenly get a Sibelius performance on French horn.
Avatar 8:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...not an easy instrument ??...
Avatar 8:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...takes lungs, anyhow...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Matt from Springfield in Germany:

@RRN63: I have heard that, from other Brass players.
  8:51pm Robert:

My friend Nadine's father Fred, with the OSS, commandeered Richard Strauss's home and ushered him out to a detention facility. Fred was an opera fan & was very pleased to meet him, but had to take care of business 1st.
  8:51pm bunyan:

The French Horn players of the Boston Symphony Orchestra used to have an ongoing "bet" that they would all go out to dinner at one of the best restaurants in town if they got through a concert without anyone making a flub. They rarely had to pay off...
Avatar 8:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- jeepers Robert !...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Matt from Springfield in Germany:

@Robert: What a piece of history!
Was Strauss' home in the Alps at that time? Germany or Austria?
  8:55pm Mrs P:

Lovely stormy program tonight Bethany. Have a good week everybody.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Matt from Springfield in Germany:

@bunyan: Sounds about what I've heard.
  8:56pm Robert:

Matt, according to what I see in Wikipedia now, it was "his Garmisch estate". I don't know if that was its name, location, or a description!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Matt from Springfield in Germany:

Garmisch, in southern Deutschland, in the Alps!

Yes, thank you Bethany, especially great musical theme tonight. Have a good one everybody!
  Swag For Life Member 8:58pm 12539:

Thanks for a grand and sweeping episode, Bethany.
  8:59pm bunyan:

Garmisch is a mountain town in Bavaria. Nowadays, one finds the Richard Strauss Institut there [ http://www.richard-strauss-institut.de/ ]
  8:59pm P-90:

Thanks, Bethany!
  9:00pm bunyan:

Thanks for all the tumult and turbulence!
  9:00pm Robert:

I see by Google Maps it's merged w Partenkirchen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Tome:
