Props to @emmagineering and Ranjit for their composer requests last week, here's your serving of Khachaturian and Villa-Lobos!

Thanks Linda - I do hope your spirits lift. The Villa-Lobos makes me want to hike those mountains in Brazil. Stat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Linda Lee:

i wonder if someone's done something similar up in my neighborhood ~ catskills peaks
Avatar 8:19pm Bethany Ryker:

Make it happen, Linda! Twin mountain and the Platte Clove range are my favorite!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Linda Lee:

ho! i'm just down the mountain from one of our last fire towers ~ could get a nice spread up there :-)
Avatar 8:24pm Bethany Ryker:

@redkayak - thanks for the cold weather suggestion! My first reaction might be to play the opposite to warm ourselves up, but I'm excited to do some audio hunting and see what comes up :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Linda Lee:

i'd like some warm tones for sure, myself. we're looking at negative single digits up here this weekend. not excited.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I'm kind of partial to Panther Mountain, myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Linda Lee:

all of our mountains are luscious! :-)
Avatar 8:31pm Bethany Ryker:

If I had an intern (!) on the playlist right now I'd have an image of the painting. Then again, you all have access to Google. Munch. Die Sonne. Ready, set, go.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Zats, if I lived in the JC area, I'd apply for that intern job. Do interns have to be at the station?

this is BEAUTIful
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm redkayak:

What was that Kronos Quartet piece -- Winter Was Hard? That would do it.....
Avatar 8:52pm Bethany Ryker:

Nice, redkayak!!
Avatar 8:55pm Bethany Ryker:

So folks, I'll be away the next two weeks, but can't wait to be back the first Tuesday of 2017. Be happy and safe!! Xx.
Avatar 8:59pm JakeGould:

Goodnight and have some good times (hopefully) during the holidays! And see you next year! Ha! I said that!
  9:00pm P-90:

Thanks Professor, enjoy your holidays!
  1:12am bunyan:

Thank you for the Stravinsky _Scherzo_ : you catch just the barest hints of some of the melodic lines he would be unleashing within the subsequent five years. Otherwise, one would scarcely guess on hearing this cold that it was his work (rather like the Mahler Piano Quartet I recently heard)...
