Today's indictments describe an egregious plot to steal public funds meant to care for children in need in what amounts to the largest pandemic relief fraud scheme yet. Okay. I have these children are involved. Yeah, I just, I don't know. How much do we blame Trump for that we've just become a nation of lunatic conspiracy theorists and fraudsters and con men and grifters and I blame your thoughts for giving them permission. They were always there. They were just under the rocks because they were like, this sounds crazy. I shouldn't say this out loud. And then all of a sudden there's someone in power and they're like, he said something crazy. And no one's doing anything about that. So maybe I should start saying all these things out loud. But it isn't just like a party that's always told us work hard. You should play by the rules. Donald Trump has not ever played by one where he has cheated absolutely everything in his entire life. He is a lifelong criminal. He's cheated at absolutely everything that you could cheat at in life, right? He's also a failed failed businessman. The reality television bolstered this guy.

Yes, he did. Okay. I get why it's hard to keep cocaine from coming into the country. People in the United States. Like using cocaine, they seek it out. They pay high dollar amounts for it.

"And men secretly wanted to be him. People would follow him concert to concert, venue to venue, city to city. He was not like the others, because he broke all the rules. His name was Franz Liszt. Long before there were beetles and way before Elvis the pelvis, list was the original rockstar. Franz Liszt was a classical composer who lived between 1811 and 1886. An outrageously talented Hungarian list set classical concert halls on fire during his performances. He did it by breaking the rules of stage decorum. He was the first to enter the stage from the wings, making a grand appearance, sending an almost electric shock through the audience. He was the first to set his piano at a right angle to the stage, so the audience could watch his hands move up and down the keyboard at unimaginable speed. He tossed his shoulder length locks in time with the music and used incredibly dramatic facial expressions to match the mood of the music. None of this had ever been done before. Older patrons rolled their eyes, younger ones screamed with delight. Classical music performances in the 19th century were cultured, formal, exceedingly polite affairs. Lists concerts were wild. He would bring The Crown to a near state of delirium with his provocative moves and his dramatic keyboard style. Women wore lists image on cameos and necklaces. When his piano wires broken concert, they would clamor to grab the wire and turn it into bracelets. Women would tear at his clothes and hair and try to storm the stage. They would observe him through binoculars. From.

"Showed off his playing. Franz Liszt wrote music that reflected his native country, Hungary. Other pianist composers put their roots into their music, too, like Spaniard isaq Albania. He made the piano imitate the guitar. While we're on the subject of pianos pretending to be other instruments, Louis Moreau got chalk, the first American pianist to become famous in Europe, used his instrument to imitate the banjo. There was a 19th century pianist composer who invented the short piece called the nocturne. Joan field was born in Ireland, but he spent most of his career in Russia. One of the last of the great pianist composers was Sergei Rachmaninoff, Rahman of lived long enough into the 20th century to make recordings. Some of them for Thomas Edison and some of them on paper rolls for player pianos. Some pianists didn't necessarily compose, but they did make arrangements of other people's music. When Vladimir Horowitz played his version of the stars and stripes forever, and almost sounded like John Philip Sousa's entire band was on stage. I'm Naomi Lewin.

"Bach's first job was as a church organist, and that's how many people in his day thought of him, an organist and choir director who did what was expected of him writing music for church services. For a while, Bach spent time conducting a court orchestra and playing harpsichord for a prince. Plenty of composers played keyboard for royalty, like Francois couperin. Cooperan wrote for the harpsichord and ancestor of the piano. The harpsichord was the instrument that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart started out playing as a child when he performed for royalty. But by the end of his life, Mozart was playing the piano. Mozart could play just about anyone under the keyboard. Long before people knew what a genius Ludwig van Beethoven was as a composer, they were thrilled with how he played the piano. It's interesting that today pianists mostly perform music by other people. Audiences used to expect pianists to play the latest music they had written. Franz Liszt was an amazing showman at the piano. He loved to dazzle people and to compose music that.

Where if you accomplished multiple things you would just keep adding names and this seems a little odd to us to have the family name in the middle and then a series of kind of descriptive or delimiting titles.

"Ten all right. I'm gonna give you a list of some stuff right now. Franz liszt frank sinatra elvis presley the beatles the rolling stones and the jackson five. What are they all have in. Common teenage girls. Were right about them before everybody else. The same thing is happening with k pop as we speak you know what else. Teenage girls were right about the movies. It's hard to imagine now in a world where everything seems catered teenage boys but the earliest and most passionate fans of films in the nineteen hundreds nineteen. Ten's were teenage girls. And young women and there was much tut-tutting and finger-wagging among the pundit class about how silly those teenage girls young women were that they were absorbing the images on the screen on an emotional service level without having any deeper analysis which is obviously nonsense and at the same time some of that was true for twilight which is why some of the culture wide snickering. That was directed at it. Didn't really sit all that. Well with me. I mean if edward cullen was good for anything he'd be an expert eyewitness for all of this stuff given that he was a teenager for a hundred years but even if some of the knox twilight were unfair that doesn't invalidate any criticism of it and the general feeling among the critics. Was that while kristen. Stewart and robert pattinson had genuine chemistry. It was all a little bit too self serious to work as a whole. It's at forty nine percent on the tomato meter with two hundred twenty two reviews but it does have a seventy-three percent audience score. So what did the critics have to say in a rotten review. Genevieve polski of the av club wrote while the movie attempts to find a compelling middle ground between gothic supernatural ism and teenage romance usually winds up stumbling into the name territory implied by both descriptions however in fresh review. Kim joiner movie city. News wrote stewart is a fine talented actress and she ups the ante considerably here. Her strong performance makes twilight far better film than it would have been with a lesser actress in the part the rotten tomatoes critics consensus reads having lost much of its bite.

"That's a swedish rhapsody by hugo alphand. But the word rhapsody is greek. It means songs stitched together. Ancient greeks told stories about their heroes in huge long epic poems. And they took parts of those poems and recited them using lots of vocal ups and downs for emphasis. The sing song recitation of poem pieces was called a rhapsody in music. Rhapsody is a free form composition that stitches different huhne's together lots of rhapsodies us popular or folk melodies from a particular country like the romanian rhapsody number one by georgian enescu and. That's actually got annoyed that his first rhapsody became so popular audiences never wanted to hear any of his other music. Franz liszt was born in hungary in spite of the fact that he spent very little of his life their list composed twenty. Hungarian rhapsodies anyone. Who's at bugs. Bunny fan knows the list. Hungarian rhapsody number. Two charles stanford only composed six rhapsodies about his native country. This is stanford's irish. Rhapsody number. Five french composer camille sounds souls based his rhapsody van on folk songs from a region of france. Another frenchman got inspired by a trip. To southern spain emmanuel shabri called his rhapsody espana which is spanish for spain. Not all rhapsodies are about foreign countries. The second rhapsody for piano and orchestra by george gershwin describes a walk through manhattan one of the five boroughs of new york city because gershwin used music to imitate the sound of skyscrapers being built. His second. rhapsody is sometimes called rhapsody. In in rivets rivets are what hold the metal beams of a building together.

"I'm naomi lewin. Welcome to classics for kids. We think of franz list as a composer but in his day he was really famous as a pianist. So were mozart. Beethoven chopin and rachmaninoff and a lot of others. You may or may not have heard of domenico. Scarlatti played one of the earliest keyboard instruments that we would recognize as a piano. Scarlatti was born in italy but he spent most of his life working for royalty in spain and portugal he composed five hundred fifty five keyboard sonatas. Luzio clementi was born in italy too but he moved to london. India's buried in westminster abbey with a tombstone that reads father of the piano forte. Which is the full name of the piano. Clementi helped make the piano popular and he taught a lot of people including carl czerny. Czerny is most famous for writing a set of piano exercises. You'll probably run into if you take lessons. Jeremy's most famous teacher was beethoven and he wound up being the soloist for the premiere. The first performance of beethoven's fifth piano concerto. Because beethoven was deaf to hear the orchestra by then another famous pianist. Composer was clara as a teenager. Clara veep was known all over europe. As queen of the piano she married. Robert schumann who also started out as a pianist after he hurt his hand and couldn't play anymore. Clara played the premiere of all his piano pieces in nineteenth century america. Amy beach became famous as a pianist and composer at a time. When most americans still traveled to europe to study music. Amy beach studied in boston. Her family moved there from new hampshire where she was born one spanish pianist composer who performed in america never made it home when an week.'. Granados came to new york for the premiere of his opera. He was also invited to give a piano recital at the white house. This was in nineteen sixteen during world. War one a ship that granados took to get home was hit by torpedo from german submarine and he didn't survive frenchman. Eric not made his living as a pianist for most of his career. So did american. Composers scott joplin Greek used to spend the spring and summer at home in norway composing but he spent the fall and winter on tour as a pianist. Some people we know today as pianists are also composers. Marc andre hamlin. Who's from canada and gabriela monteiro. Who was born in venezuela. She performed at president obama's first inauguration. Montano is very good at improvising. That is taking a melody and making up music from it on the spot. It's interesting to think which people we know as pianists might be better remembered one day as composers..

Lister stokowski my congratulations sir. The first american born conductor to become an international superstar was leonard bernstein.
