Perfect song after tonight's Morricone Island.

I've come to do some parading.
  8:06pm Kay in Chi:

Iiiiiii just love a paraaaaaade
Avatar 8:08pm Bethany Ryker:

Parade AND fire brigade - more on that in a moment
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Uncle Michael:

Parading the streets! Trailing your coat! Bowling along! LIVING!
  8:10pm Dean:

From Fanfare's review in 2012 of this issue: "This is admittedly difficult music to bring off convincingly but the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra—one of Denmark’s most illustrious provincial groups—provides brilliant realizations under composer-conductor Bo Holten that must be considered definitive. This first volume supplies an excellent introduction to one of the most individualistic composers of the first half of the 20th century."

@Dean, yes!! Incineratedly! and FIRED UP!

Sordino is a lot like anchovy, right? As in, "Hey, Györgi and Béla! Can I get a pepperoni prestissimo con sordino?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Mister Dobalina:

Good tiime feels!\
  8:27pm a polished polish lady:

Hello! Loving all this!
  8:27pm bunyan:

Should the fourth movement of that Violin Sonata be played "Ligeti-split"?

Getting a late start on cooking tonight -- and the show sounds great, Bethany.
  8:34pm Dean:

I was at a Green Umbrella performance in the late '80s, early '90s, a North American premier of a Ligeti piece, at which I vaguely recall he was in attendance. During preliminary remarks there was some discussion of how to pronounce his name. If I remember correctly, it was

  8:41pm Dean:

Obviously not *that* Paul Jacobs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm WR:

Too bad I'm late because I don't know focoso
  8:47pm Dean:

English is my second language. Drooling and pointing is my first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Uncle Michael:

You remain bilingual, Dean.
  8:48pm Dean:

I also speak with forked tongue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm mariano:

Well, here's a headline for ya: "NYPD trial begins for pilot accused of flying surveillance plane in penis-shaped route"
  8:49pm Dean:

That, @mariano, prompted a genuine LOL.
  8:50pm a polished polish lady:

Hopefully they’re not too hard on him
Avatar 8:51pm Bethany Ryker:

Loving this banter. Keep it up.
  8:51pm Listening Out There:

Evening, y’all!

  8:52pm paulo:

Thank you Bethany, I look forward to this she all week
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm YETI BOB:

Loving this show, keep it up!
  8:53pm Dean:

Alkan's Scherzo Diabolico has been recorded by Vincenzo Maltempo. (Maltempo? Bad timing?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm mariano:

Dean: Yeah, me too. I mean, is there a specific rule or law forbidding flight patterns from resembling naughty bits?

YETI BOB: you missed a song with yeti in the title on micah's show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm DougDeMontréal:

Some kind of Buddy Rich on the ivories.

Sometimes a flight pattern is just a flight pattern.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm mariano:

paulo: Lol! Sometimes I accidentally write "sow" instead of "show" but thus far I've always caught the typo before posting.

Thanks Bethany, really enjoyed the sow! ;) Thanks Crew, take care folks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm spodiodi:

i dunno about laws, but i remembered seeing that the linked story
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm spodiodi:

thanks, Bethany. great show. loved the Scherzo-Focoso
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm spodiodi:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm YETI BOB:

@c∅: this happens from time to time ... it's not skywriting, i don't think you see it in the sky, it just shows up on maps ... a pretty subtle prank
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm mariano:

coela: Yeah, that's what I was wondering. It wasn't sky-writing or anything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm mariano:

Today's headlines are nuts! "Ponzi scheme suspect tried to escape arrest on underwater scooter: feds" [Seinfeld voice] An underwater scooter? An underwater scooter?!
  8:59pm bLeubomber:

Bonsoir Mlle Bethany. Enjoyed the broadcast, now I’m out looking for Leonid meteorites
  8:59pm Dean:

Cage's Freeman Etudes, as they progress, must be at least as difficult as the Alkan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm coelacanth∅:

i must say i'm a little disappointed. normally an audience of classical music lovers would inundate a comment board with naughty puns!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Uncle Michael:

Thank you, Bethany.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Bethany!
Avatar 9:01pm freshsoup:

@coelacanth∅: Uhm the theme was focoso. What more punning do you need?
