Bonjour Mlle. Bethany.

Welcome, La Maestra.

Good evening. Music to grade final research papers by. Thanks.

Obstreperous? Truculent, even.

Good Evening, Bethany and everyone!

Always felt one hour is way too short for Bethany
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm mariano:

Agree, Brian. 'Evening Bethany and crew, folks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm G:

@Brian: Yes -- In a 168-hour weekly schedule, one hour of not-overplayed classical is not exactly over-weighting...

we are here

And here I thought strepitoso was caused by a bacterial infection...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Michael 98145:

this one was poco
  8:13pm Dean:

Jean-Féry Rebel's "Chaos" ("Le Cahos"). c.1737, is respectably noisy.
  8:13pm Dean:

And here I thought Poco was Rusty Young's band.
Avatar 8:16pm Bethany Ryker:

Hello all, so glad you are here and that my noisy self is contained in the
mic breaks ;)
Avatar 8:18pm Soul Captain:

Obstreperous can't even begin to describe
Avatar 8:18pm TDK60:

  8:20pm Dean:

So many obsolete words rooted in strep-. There once was a verb, strepitate, "to make a noise often, to make a great noise, to rusle."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Bethany and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Michael 98145:

@Dean, have to remember that one ...
  8:22pm P-90:

Well, that was tart ‘n’ tangy

This is a good night on WFMU

  8:26pm Dean:

From the sole review of a work by Lillian Fuchs in Fanfare magazine, this from 2013:

Lillian Fuchs, originally a violinist, lived in the shadow of her famous brother Joseph. In a 1986 interview in *The Strad*, she said she didn’t mind this at all: “I just developed quietly because nobody paid any attention to me.” Oddly, however, her father *did* pay attention to her, so when she was invited to play second violin in Marianne Kneisel’s string quartet he put his foot down, saying she wouldn’t play second fiddle to anyone, but when Kneisel invited her to be the violist her father thought that was OK! Thus Lillian switched instruments. The group was the Perolé Quartet, and Lillian played viola in it from 1925 until the mid 1940s. She composed her unaccompanied *Sonata Pastorale* in 1953, by which time she was a busy and sought-after viola teacher. It is in two movements, a “fantasia” and a “pastorale.” The former is rather mysterious in both its thematic material as it snakes around C, later modulating to D. The second movement, though beginning rather “pastorale,” modulates into a busy section which then alternates with the slower melody.

hello, Bethany and everyone. enjoying the show
  8:27pm Gaylord Fields:

This program is precisely what I needed on this day. (I’ll tell you more offline.)

Honey pistachio energy chunks and a low-cal IPA.

I find at least one Sorabji piece marked strepitoso...

This piece by Jan Cikker makes me so happy I'm playing it twice.

First intro to your show. Looking, found something new with your programming. Brightened my day. New follower. Three Madrigals is just what I needed.

Hang in there, Gaylord.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Michael 98145:

let's call it "music"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Michael 98145:

whatever. loving this.
  8:43pm WM:

Bethany: I agree with Brian in New Orleans - you deserve more than one hour a week on WFMU.

Live in a piano bit.ly...

"we need something snoozy and familiar"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm spodiodi:

i love this show is anything but
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm deborah:

@8:43WM Yes, I would like to hear more than one hour of what is called "classical" music. Maybe in Fall?
  8:46pm Gaylord Fields:

Thanks, UM!
  8:47pm Dean:

LA's KUSC remains at least somewhat daring as classical radio goes. But I'm not opposed to snoozy and familiar now and then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm spodiodi:

KDFC makes me disappoint most of the time i tune in
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm spodiodi:

(looks like it's also owned by USC... maybe i need to spend more time, possibly at different times listening)
Avatar 8:51pm Bethany Ryker:

I'm glad that I can leave y'all wanting more of this strange classical stuff. To explain a bit, a one-hour show format is of my choosing...I haven't been sidelined or anything! It goes by fast though, doesn't it!!
  8:52pm Dean:

I think the "USC" that now owns KUSC is not in fact the university. My understanding is that they sold it ages ago. Fortunately, to some extent its quality remains.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm spodiodi:

way fast
  8:53pm Dean:

WFMU needs a regular 4'33" show that plays the catalog of recordings of, well, you know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm spodiodi:

noted, Dean, thank you

and thanks Bethany! great show.

see you all soon

thank you, Bethany

It's a great show. Thanks Bethany.

  8:59pm Gaylord Fields:

@Dean: In these days of home broadcasting, WFMU does feature 4’33’ quite a bit during random programs in an unplanned manner.

Mlle. Bethany always a pleasure listening to your broadcast. All 440’s stay safe & healthy. Bonsoir
