This is exciting because your story is very interesting. And I think that that young people who are interested in getting involved in opera will find it very. Not only inspiring kind of educational. So which is perfect since we are all about the education. So how does your story start? Well, it was, you know, a long story because my my story with music is big big big along loft story it started. When I was a six year old six years old. And you know, as every child I was wondering what what I would be in my life. What I will do. And I remember once I asked my mother. Mommy tells me, please. Everybody's asking me what I want to be in my life, and I really have no idea, and she told me how that this can be possible. You will be the greatest musician. The greatest pianist in the world all. What is that? What is it beyond? No. I didn't even know what it was that they tended what's really fun to me to hear that. And she said, you know, I think I will make you meet this instrument and the classical music, and I think you will love it. And I remember that she brought me to this edition. I was like six years and a half. And they wanted me to sing something, and I was so shy that I just escaped is Cape. From the addition I didn't. And this is what's so funny. Because then my mother had to convince me to come back and she had to to to speak with me. And I I was asking myself, but why she's doing this to me why she wanted me to you know, to expose me so much. I was really somebody very shy. Very timid. And and well, I came back I sank and they said, oh, yeah. She has a nice voice, and she can hear the music. Well, so let's start and that's how I started my long long long loft story with music later on I will continue singing in choruses. And I was the lowest voice in the choruses for kids. So I would sing in the contralto. So this is really really low compared to what I am today. Because when I was fifteen I just discovered I could think even the high, no. Hi started to be soprano. All of a sudden, it was really fun. Yeah. Yeah. My

I'm Dacia and welcome to the classical classroom back in the classroom today for the fourth time because she just can't get enough is violinist. Rachel barton. Pine Rachel is kind of a big deal having played with virtually every major destroyer, you can think of and you know, what I'm actually going to let you Rachel tell everybody what you've been up to for the past year. So what's been going on? Oh, goodness. Just all kinds of stuff. Just the last three weeks. Actually, I was last week with the Anchorage symphony doing some otehr and one of the members of the audience who came up to the meet and greet table mentioned you and and your podcast. Yeah. So I thought that was pretty awesome. Very cool. So then the two weeks before that I was in Vancouver and Pennsylvania doing world premieres of two different recently written violin, concertos and. Yeah. Coming up. I've got everything from Halifax to Oregon to Houston. I'm it's just nonstop was awesome. So when do you sleep, exactly? Well, so so previously you've taught me about Pellegrini. Caprices Mendelssohn violin concerto, an minor the music of earthen grave, perhaps more most importantly, and you've told me about boxing Nahda's. So today, we're going to continue my education from Rachel Barton. Pine, and then we're going to talk about the music of elgar. And It's Brooke max max Bruch is how you say his name. Yep. Like, that's how hard core. I don't know about these composers. Okay. So will the brook is a great place to start because it's one of the most popular of the romantic era violin concertos, you know. Continually performed every violinist ends up studying it, I I learned it when I was eight, and you know, it's I performed countless times since then. Yeah. And this is his greatest hit now. Elgar? Of course, you probably know the pomp and circumstance. Right. Right. Right. Yeah. You know that that that's him. That's the that's the guy. Brooke doesn't have a hit of that magnitude. But actually, he was very prolific. He wrote so many beautiful pieces which are played often enough. I recorded one of his other concertos which is called the Scottish fantasy. And it has all these different traditional Scottish folk themes made into a violin concerto. And you know, Brooke was very interested in folk music from various parts of the world. But this this concerto. This g minor concerto is solidly German, and in the sense of the word, it has a real strength than her real heroism. That is the best of that type of German romantic sound..

And all of it has been really lovely and listeners if that is the kind of holiday episode you're looking for turn back now because today is about the ugly Christmas sweaters of classical music. Welcome to jingle hill. Oh. Lucia? Thanks for coming in today to talk to me about this. I don't even know what to call this. But I, but I feel like it needs to be done. It's a gripe session. Yeah. Exactly. So so let's get right to it. I your your where should we start with terrible Christmas music. I don't know. I mean, there's really great stuff out there. But there's so many little details of bug you. Because you hear them over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again, this that repetitiveness I think of not only hearing the same songs over and over again. But but I think hearing that within the music yes can can make a bad song. What's the first piece of terrible music that we should here. I wanna I wanna hear something. And then talk about why it's terrible. Oh, well, nothing that bad. You are singing about the birth of Christ. You got to have a little perspective here. But I think something that that changes throughout the years in the centuries is the green sleeves piece because it's it's a glorious song, and it's been handed down generation to generation. You know books on and it's been played in different. What's called Mods and a mode is like a scale sophisticated piano. Look at all the white keys play from one. He did the other white key. If you're on a C that's major scale yet. If you move up out DD of called Dorian, so all the different white white keys are named different modes, and this one just has a variety of them. And then there's this particular note in here that if you play at one way half, the people want feel like you're scratching your nails on the chalkboard. And if played the other way, the other half think it's so it's what is his who they to rest on reasons is there's a sharp there yet. Another versions is no reason is it's it's not sharp. So some people get annoyed by one or the other. You can't really please them. Also, I think we go to micro tones and play an half. Just to please everybody because that's what we're all about. Now. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Okay. I see. So it's it's like, it's a it's just a contentious note. Right. Yeah. That's been kind of, you know, elite through the generation. So every Washington because this is this is from like medieval times just second the early days.
