"This is Seattle Morning News. They've Ross with Colleen O'Brien, Chris Kelvin. And here's Rachel Bell, because an amazing thing has happened Bookstores, which were decimated by Amazon, and I'm making a comeback because of Ah Cove it. Is that what you found? That's right. It took a pandemic to get people reading again yet, eh? This article was in The Wall Street Journal. And the question that was asked is Can books compete with Netflix in the Sir, was yes. So in August 2020 year over year sales of print books in the U. S were up 13% compared to last year, And it seems like what people are saying is, you know, I'm tired of looking at screens. I'm working from home. So I'm on zoom talking with my friends. I'm reading the news because I'm worried about things like the election, So I don't want to watch TV and movies as much as I did. I want to just look at a book. I don't know why that should be because actually, I don't think I am working. Any less for for being stuck at home here. If anything, I feel like among call all the time. And you have I'm trying to count of 1234567 books in September. Um, books in September alone? Yeah, just cause it's so convenient to have it right there. And you go. You can go from work right to the reading chair. That I you know, I read in three lines like like, like people get used to in Seattle, But I have also binge watched Bleep Creek on Netflix, too, so Well, you're just not sleeping. You're just consuming No 24 hours a day. I'm also I'm also sleeping because I kind of taking a nap, so I don't Maybe it Maybe the commute sucked up more time than I really thought. Another thing that they credit is indeed bookstores during all this because those were the guys that were, you know, not doing very well. But small independent bookstores have been doing a lot of cool things. First of all, a lot of free shipping, which I know is true here in Seattle at my favorite all cookbook bookstore book Larder and Fremont, which is an amazing shop if you love food. They've since stop that, but for you know, at least six months free shipping and then a lot of these in the bookstores are just doing these cool deals, so I'll give you a couple of examples. There is AH bookstore in Tulsa, Oklahoma, called Magic City Books. And if you give him 55 bucks for their literary care package You fill out a form that you say what kind of type a book that you like to read. And then they will send you a surprise package that they've custom picked based on your taste. And then another bookstore. This is the novel neighbor in Webster Groves. Oh, my gosh! I feel like such a dum dum, What is M o misery? Ok, thank you s Oh, They will send you this mystery box as well. But you get like special other goodies in there that are kind of themed with the books that you pick. Oh, I like this one at Kramer Books and afterwards Cafe in Washington D c. You can order if you order a book on Postmates. You can also order food from them so you could get a delivery love like a grilled cheese sandwich and a novel at the same time. So you said you read a ton of books. What would be if people are listening in there like I want to be a smart as Dave Ross's like ever. You're Bill Gates releases his topics. What? What is one of your I don't know what their top picks but the ones that haven't read planet Funny. That was Ken Jennings book. Geography of Genius. Democracy In one Booker last David let he worked for the Obama administration. I speed read, Marry trumps book on. Ah, the Kindle. Now you're just bragging, Julian. Well as in skin Julian Barnes. Noise of Time, which is about Dmitri Shostakovich, which was surprisingly interesting. Steve Martin wrote a book called Object of Beauty about the Art World, which I also that was fascinating. I loved his bookshop girl, which came out now like 15 years. Yeah, well, that's the first Steve Art book I read the other Einstein about his wife, who apparently actually invented the theory of relativity. So there you go. I'm coping. Well, I guess you sure are. I will say my favorite is one. That's a lot of people's favorite. So I almost feel like so basic pumpkin spice latte for loving it. But where the crawdad sing by Delia Owens is worth all the hype. I couldn't put it down. Actually, I forced myself to put it down because I didn't want it to go so quickly. So I started reading to other books so I could prolong it. And so I'm still finishing The diary of Anne Frank, which I picked up which I highly recommend re reading while in quarantine because it really puts things into perspective. Rachel Bell.

"The musical kind of sweet is spelled S. U. I t. e. from the French expression on sweet which means to follow in order French composers wrote the first sweet so they named them.

Also wrote suites for Solo Instruments. So low keyboard wasn't that unusual. Lots of composers did that but backwards sweets for other unaccompanied companied instruments like cello After a while the idea of a sweet changed instead of a collection of dance pieces a sweet turned into a collection of any pieces that had something in common. For example music. Music from a play could be grouped into sweet like Edvard Grieg's music for peer Gin Arrange bits of a ballet or opera for performance at an orchestra concert. You get a sweet like the one from Carmen. By George say you can also group music from several different ballets into who was sweet. That's what Dmitri Shostakovich did in some sweets are made up of folksongs William Grant still like to use tunes from North and South America. The the other sweets are musical descriptions of a particular place. Ferdie grow painted a musical picture of the Grand Canyon onion for a little girl named Dali Gabrielle. Foray composed imposed sweet about her toys and Edward Elgar rounded up a bunch of pieces.

"In the fall of nineteen forty one the Russian countryside was on fire. The German army was marching across the Soviet Union at an alarming rate and villagers were torching. Their own towns and farms to prevent them from being taken. The troops that were bound for Moscow were relentless intent on reaching the Russian capital, but Joseph Stalin, the Soviet leader wasn't about to surrender his city to Hitler. Stalin had a plan if the German forces were to capture Moscow, the city's most prize buildings were read to blow the Kremlin cathedrals the fanciest hotels and the Bolshoi theatre. The theater is as grand as you can imagine towering columns on the outside all velvet chandeliers on the inside. If Hitler made it to Moscow and wanted to celebrate his victory by going to performance at the Bolshoi the Russians were ready for him. They lined the orchestra pit of the theatre with explosives booby, trapping, the building and in an image. I can't shake ballerinas and circus performers were trained to dance on stage while holding grenades to kill whoever. They could if they got the chance lever a composer and a member of the Soviet secret police he had a very specific assignment. If Moscow fell if the German swept in if he could get close enough. He was to kill Hitler. I'm Jade Simmons. And this is decomposed.

We dive into World War Two were music became a weapon for the Soviets as they fought the Germans and sometimes as they fought themselves. There was lead Nipper the composer turned would be assassin. He never had the fire that shot. Those ballerinas never pulled the grenade pins that plan at the Bolshoi was never forced into action, but in another Soviet city. Also squarely in the path of the marching Germans. There was a composer who did harness his music in the darkest moments of war. This is the story of the Mitri Shostakovich and the siege of money grad. Dmitri Shostakovich grew up in political chaos. He watched the fall of the last czar, the rise of communism and the formation of the Soviet Union. He lived in Saint Petersburg, petrograd and Leningrad all without moving the Russian city changed names and regimes around him by the time.

"The first even though they're having fun there sarcasm in the first move and second movement is expressing the fear in a way that Shostakovich with his wife felt living in those times third movement is in between those times like the before danger and then living through trying to go through the motions of Petitjean life living in an environment. That's not very safe and then the fourth movement is reality. Is You wake up and find your best friend is not living in his apartment anymore and nobody he can find where he is. Just a Kovic lost a lot of very dear friends that were also musicians so the fourth movement is very symbolic for the military loss sadness fear all of those qualities and fifth movement is a collaboration and kind of highlighting everything that king previously bringing everything to ahead and looking for hope. There's a little section that he used to call at the C. and you'll see the dancers doing movements that kind of represent waves and that's <hes> the hope that the Russian people felt at that time that perhaps beyond where we live over there over the C.. There'll be a hope one day that we can together. They hold hands in they sway together we can move forward forward and find our way as a people and then within symphony number nine. There's a one principal male dancer that represents he said this the angel it's the part of our cells as human beings that hold onto hope even when there's tragedy and difficulty and he's the representation of better way of a hopeful way of a light at the end of the tunnel in our lives so he weaves in and out of the ballet and everything is symbolic. Everything is abstract but if it's done well there's a lot of symbolism and a lot of deep meaning behind what's happening physically and it is physically very challenging stamina wiser dancers don't stop in terms of what to look for here notice the distinctions between the leading dancers. The first couple you mean isn't actually the main couple of the ballet but instead of kind of archetypical goal perfect Soviet pair dancing steps loosely inspired by Russian folk dance. It's the second couple who are perhaps Shostakovich in his wife and then there's a third leading man watch for him. He's a bit of ambiguous figure. I'm curious what you guys think he's up to. The second ballet in the evening is the most narrative and biographical of the three works at shift in perspective tied to the music itself slots to cope with his chambers. Symphony was a very personal piece for the composer so so here's how Martin West describes it Chamber symphony which started life as a quartet eight quartet and he wrote this in. I think he was nine hundred sixty in three days which is actually mind boggling to me that you could even written down in three days. Let alone composed it in all the way through that Bali is four very important notes Shostakovich D. E. Flat C. B. Goes hit over and over again. Those notes long story translated translated into German become D. S. H.. which in Germany's Dmitri Shostakovich the first letters of his name so if a hmos autobiographical you use the many many times in his in his output eighth quarterback Texas where he use it perhaps the most most insistently and he dedicated to the victims of fashion fascism and war but really for him it was not a biographical thing and he quotes in that particular quartet for tat many pieces which were very important to him? There was a quote from the Opera Lady Macbeth of McCain's which was the work which was denounced by by the authorities which made him have to start writing a little while nearly nearly got killed for it and towards the end ballet the peace and he worked with First Symphony which is the piece that put him on international stardom when he was eighteen years zolt and decreasing the cello concerto all sorts of little things all there but he said himself he thought of as summing-up of his life and I understand that he intended to commit suicide after he wouldn't it but luckily he didn't he hit lesson to the ten fifteen years after that so Romanski took these autobiographical underpinnings in the music and created a ballet that traces the outline of Shostakovich's three great love of affairs his I love Tatyana Glencoe his wife Navarre who was the mother of his children and who died in nineteen fifty four and his third wife Irina Supense Guy who is just twenty seven when she married the fifty six year old Shostakovich in nineteen sixty two Nancy Rafi a few more details about this Bali in the ballet. There's three principal women and they represent the three loves of Shostakovich's life the youngest love that he had which was I love puppy. Beloved that woman through six years never proposed to her. She waited for him to propose he was too shy as a young boy to actually do that and he lost her he she went with another man and he was devastated by that. He had a a couple of other not so great relationships until he met the woman that he did actually have a family with and she was the fortress of his life. He was able to get through all of the challenges that the political situation at the time time put him through with this woman who really was the backbone of the whole household and then he lost her suddenly and his life was broken. I remember Alexi telling me that the very first thing that came out of shift to co voyages mouth when he lost his wife was who's going to take the children to school. She was that much of a foundation for him so he he was devastated for went through a major depression after that loss and later Garon as a as an older man in his sixties he met another woman which was his last wife that was a very mature very grounding relationship and she was the woman that saw him through the last of his days and she still alive and she actually came to a bts premiere of the Shostakovich evening. It was a great honor to have her in the audience and have her presence their positions in the center of the evening. This bally's seems to hold the evenings heart the three women and the central man is artists seem in some way a reference to George Balanchine Seminal Ballet Apollo which also revolves around a man and three women written or rather a god three muses choreographed in nineteen twenty eight after leaving the Soviet Union. There's a way in which Apollo and even maybe balancing himself offer a counterpoint to this work and she shostakovich artist messed Shostakovich artists who stayed way balancing Stravinsky are the artists who laughed so here watch for a moment toward the end of the ballet when as an Apollo the central figure seems to transcend his humanity and become perhaps not quite a god but an immortal artist finally the final section of the ballet concerto number one is perhaps the most abstract and visually arresting of the three the dancers clad in gray and revolutionary red had and a series of Soviet. Ask objects hang from the ceiling. There's no real story to follow here but there is a theatricality and I kind of anxiety that Rask's just below the ballet's athletic playful surface yet. This Bali wasn't always intended to be quite what it is so. Let's hear Nancy Rafi talk about how this piece came about. It actually is funny. How this ballet came about? We were supposed to use symphony number one and we got in the studio and it wasn't working. Nothing was coming out. uh-huh dancers couldn't follow the music Lexi with stuck. Just was one of those moments nightmare moments for an artist where nothing was working so that weakened. I went to my mom's nursing home. WHO's ballet panicked and there is like mom helped? Let me count this out because we're having so much trouble in the studio Monday. Morning came Alexia figured out that counts we're going to be able to like figure this section on he goes no. I scratched it all like we're not using that different choreography different music piano concerto the number one and we took that music he used the choreography he started with symphony number. One put it to piano concerto number one and everything just snowballed it just went it just flowed and that's what we came up with with tonight. It's dancing to the music concerto number. One is one of Shostakovich's earliest compositions concerto number one for a piano trumpet in strings written in Nineteen thirty three and Britain in nineteen thirty three is the oldest of the three pieces used in Romanski Shostakovich trilogy it quotes from a variety of other composers music including Beethoven's a Posse Nada which you might have heard earlier this season as part of Kaleidoscope or program to and Martin West here will tell us a little bit more about this piece of music and then the Hanukkah show nearly on these life and as I said before it's a madcap brilliant combination of all sorts of things he voted for himself so that he go around and playing paying it. No He's so get out and get get to perform. Actually it's interesting people's call it is called Concert Piano Trumpet and strings and originally when he voted he he meant to be trumpet Concerto and then he added the piano part so he could play and then he wrote so much of the part that it became the shelter and in fact although it's now called Conservative trumpetings really the trump is part of the ORQUESTA. It has a few solos but nothing really huge. I don't think it's my personal opinion. This ballet has a sense of nostalgia to it kind of Camaraderie `sensitive fun and humor but also a kind of yearning for lost world. It's purely abstract an extremely sculpture all with the individual dancers creating shapes with their bodies and also the full group coming together to create large scale visual pictures. This kind of shaping of space is one of the things monkeys really known for and it's on high display here here in concerto number one and that is the Shostakovich trilogy and it is the end of our twenty nineteen season <hes> this ballet is one of those that rather exceeds words so I really do hope you can all come yet Romanski. He's truly a master at work and at the height of his powers so the campus event this year of course if you do miss it you can catch it in London at the end of May were airframe out the sets and costumes as soon as the curtain comes down on May twelve so we can open our toward a Sadler's dealers wells on May twenty ninth with this valley for more on that checkout are popular meet the artists podcast..

"Kart tournaments. For me. Definitely the most memorable experience has been playing side by side with some the most prestigious fresh musicians in the country. It was around the second day. They had coaches sit inside though, extre play side by side with us. And that was really intense. It's really moving to see all of the musicians so invested in devoted to the. Music are thought the most absolutely amazing experience. So far was the first rehearsal with the entire orchestra. Just the first few notes of the Mahler and getting to hear the entire group. Play was just absolutely stunning. It's it's like, it's really beautiful thing. We have all these people coming from all over the place. Young people given this opportunity like share our experiences emotional backgrounds to create this one really beautiful piece of music. And it's it's really it's really inspiring every time that I that. I take part in that. And now we're going to let the N Y O USA take break as we hear one of the most beloved pieces of chamber music played by some of its members. The Scherzer from the piano quintet by Dmitri Shostakovich sort of short ride in cranky machine when you say Andrew. We're going to have members of the orchestra to play this. They are violinists Evan Hansen. Andrew Kim Kayla. Cabrera is our list and Isabel one plays the cello in this piece. I'll have the pleasure of joining these guys at the piano, Andrew from old, tappan New Jersey is at the Mike with me. This is really exciting piece. I know it's particularly satisfying for you. Personally. What am I speaking about? Well, I I had my experience with Shostakovich when I first touched the Shostakovich violin concerto last summer, and I would say that was my first time having genuine and individual relationship with the composer himself in that. I didn't know that. There was such a small disparity between the stereotypical prim and proper and elegant class communiqu and what I would describe Shostakovich as rock and roll. And who doesn't love good. Enroll and I think that head banging no matter where it's from. It's still had banging. Guess hand. I'm excited to lose. Some more bow hairs today. I'll try and break stringer to myself. You almost didn't get to the point where you could engage with the violent and shred on Shostakovich because you almost quit playing in the fifth grade if you wouldn't mind sharing with us what happened there. Yeah. That's kind of a heavy heavy topic. But I think it's more or less how I was raised and educated with the violent discipline. My relationship with violin only include lessons, if teachers and me practicing by myself in my room, and because of that kind of daily monotonous procedures I didn't have room to experience community, you know. And I think community is the most important aspect of music because you're able to collaborate with everyone and just you know. Enjoy yourself while other people enjoy themselves as well. And I didn't know that until I got into Juilliard pre college. And I actually saw for the first time while there's other kids who like the violin just as much as I do. And they all understand that we all don't like the practice, but we have to do that. Anyway, and given that kind of mutual understanding with every single person despite their differences and differences in backgrounds and such. I learned to appreciate violence so much more. Well, we're glad we're getting this together. So let's go shred. Let's play this wonderfully fun piece Scherzer from Shostakovich's piano quintet in g minor. Scherzer from by festival played by members of national USA. Evan Joe Hansen. Andrew, Kim, violins Kayla Cabrera viola and Isabel one cello. I was piano. Now, we're gonna speak to another one of these fine players are villas to Kayla Kayla is from Crete, Illinois probably their Kayla really funded together with you great job.
