Tobias Smith and PR news Boston. The composer George Gershwin, heard only one best sing in porgy and Bess, the soprano and brown. When she auditioned for the part, she was a student at Juilliard, the first black vocalist ever admitted there. Critic bob mandelo marks what would have been Anne brown's hundredth birthday month with a look back at a life filled with operatic moments, both on and off stage. For audiences in 1935 and Brown must have seemed to own the role of Bess at a time when there were precious few classically trained black singers, this newcomer was a revelation. Brown was 23 when she stood before George Gershwin, auditioning for the part of Bess with the schubert Arya she was studying at Juilliard, but he wanted to hear her sing a Negro spiritual after letting him know that she was offended. She sang city called heaven without accompaniment, and Gershwin knew he had his leading lady. Except it is folk opera didn't have a leading lady part. In the dubose Hayward novel called porgy, Bess is just one of many poor black

"And it's too sad but I am in love with you Right here I'm Raleigh James and Charlotte Illinois I wanted me to play that and I'm happy to do it Love Lenny Welch and that of course was his biggest hit Not our favorite John and I have a different fave of his but still I don't think he's ever done a bad record Does an interesting country stuff too didn't hit but some good stuff so happy to happy to play it And I was just answering an email from Kathleen Hi Kathleen And she was saying that a lot of the voice-over guys sounded white and she said is that where white voices considered more believable at the time or were they packages They weren't packages Most of them were in-house people but it was more about the style of announcing at the time We all used to joke that they weren't announcers They were pronounced you know or the pear shaped horns and everything was just perfectly enunciated And that was pretty much the style But the interesting thing to me was while they were eloquent no doubt about it The disc jockeys often came across the street you know the Riemann E O papadaki diddly I am all that yeah right Frankie Crocker was wonderful at the rhymes to later But some of these people were the real deal no doubt about it But for many this was the on air affectation the rhyming and stuff And I was talking about Jocko Henderson because his dad was head of the board of education in Maryland and Baltimore And clearly he was very literate but he came across as one of the best rhymers ever He didn't start it though I think more than anybody hot rod holbert who had come to Baltimore from Memphis was the first real rhyme or we laughed that today the records wrapped back then the disc joke is wrapped in the record song which was pretty much the way it way it was but a lot of the guys who were just just terrific at shucking and driving as it were you know rhyming every possible word These folks very often were absolutely literate but that wasn't the act on the radio And yeah I loved the soul jocks She thought they were tremendous So let's see And I bet you I should play some Jocko some night because he later did that rapid series of history records where like I said he was very bright man and very educated And he tried to bring history alive through rap and it was a pretty good series Sally he's been gone now what about almost 20 years I do think Tom and Covington welcome back to WGN radio I never know what I'm gonna learn when I listen to you But last night you had mentioned about WTI X and I have an air check from 53 I'm sure because when WTI ex sign on I remember my dad coming home and said is it going to be a new station coming on And it's going to play classical music And this air check was all George Gershwin music And it had a couple of commercials on it And both sides of it were playing George Gershwin And I don't know how long after that stores got over the station and made a top 40 But it was interesting to hear an air check As a classical station It didn't work very well for them And that's when they were at 1450 of course And it worked so poorly that Todd was able to pick up that frequency for $25,000 And so he bought it in 53 but then it was butt Armstrong who he sent down the program And that was yeah it was it was lucky to get out of my house at night because it was 250 watts And at night it was hard to hear I was about 9 or ten miles out of the city Right Well it was nice and wanted license to be a thousand day two 50 night Well in those days there were all two 50 Day on night Yeah and then they went to a thousand day and two 50 night I don't remember exactly when that was if it was 70s or when it was then they went you know a thousand at night Yeah full time right Absolutely Interesting Had vacated 1450 in either 49 or 50 when they went to ten 60 Right Right And that's the deal they made with a baptist of New Orleans the church And they had to carry that Sunday morning service in perpetuity And that was fine until decided they were going to try surround sound where they were doing that reverb And they managed to put the reverb on the pots that would be appropriate for it but what they forgot was the pot that was bringing in the church service And so that first morning it really did sound like God was talking on the service because the reverb was so heavy Yeah I can just barely hear you I hear you fine You say this so often And you know what We checked with other people and nobody else has the problem So I was talking to somebody today and when he got cut off the phone just about blew my ear out with that stuff they put on Yeah well I don't know I don't know what to tell you As far as as far as that goes But yeah I know you've complained about the further regular So I kind of checked about it as much as I could and nobody else is complaining and I don't see what the problem is So I don't know what to pick I'm blaming it on you AT&T that's all I can say Well there you are So it wasn't all I was going to say but now it's a well maybe it is Yeah I can remember when they were you know they had to surveys I've got some original surveys But they have all the caricatures of

"Break I swear it's really the words that resonate for so many of us this year What do they mean to you Honestly for me it really talks about the African American experience And we bend we don't break You know we had so much pushback and it had been so many people against us And so even during the storm there might be high winds but the winds don't break the tree We just sway because our route runs so deep and our roots are our foundation And I just think it's such a powerful piece Okay let's contrast that with an opera about the black experience by a white composer Porky and Bess was written by George Gershwin back in 1935 Let's listen to Marin alsop conducting She is the first woman to lead a major symphony orchestra I'll stop step down this year from the Baltimore symphony podium that's your home orchestra Here's the operas most famous song summertime I mean this is music that I grew up around for a long time Especially summertime Also I just think this is incredible recording just these highlights of porgy and Beth You know maren I'll stop at one of my mentors and actually even one of my teachers And this is a full circle moment for me anyways because during this recording my little sister was actually in the choir the Morgan State University choir We recorded this And then I also thought it was really cool as well because I'm angel blue who's a soloist was also a soloist and fire shut up in my bones so also props Great connection It was a great moment of the year Speaking of Marin allsop you also take note of a new documentary about her It's called the conductor I think I.

"What those songs mean to different types of artists and musicians. And so I opened it with this long keening held clarinet note that for me, I stole from Gershwin from George Gershwin's rhapsody in blue. But I presented that to the musician and said, this is what I want. I want it to hold for way too long. And then we'll bring the song in underneath it and allow that to be the introduction to the album. With the books I'm doing the same thing. And if you look at the beginning of each book, there is something that in the second book, you're literally the first image is a window that's blackened. And it's inviting you into this unknown place. That book is quite, I think, accomplished. The first book as well, did Jonathan Berger book. The third book with Tilda Swinton on the cover is my pandemic book. And it is a little bit like me in third grade, not being able to read the clock quite right. It's a little stunted. It started as something that was quite tight in terms of the idea that I had for what the book was going to be. And it became something very different under the madness that became my COVID year of 2020. I went a little bit like I think a bunch of us did. And that is well represented in the book. But you need a little bit of a legend to get through it. Now the book does come with a QR code but with me describing audio describing. It's a little podcasting. If you scan the QR codes, you know, it's in a good way. If you can, so for our listeners, if you scan the QR codes on the various pages, they lead you to audio recordings of Michael talking about why he included the photographs and thinking about the narrative arc, the placement, which is super important, it's a real sort of multilayered experience that I think is really interesting for the format. It helps unravel the puzzle. And it changed my intention. My intention hasn't I hit the word artist. But as an artist, my intention is always always to not have anyone feel left out. I want every single person that encounters anything that I do to feel smart when they walk away from it to feel like they get it. They understand it on some level, whether it's visual, whether it's emotional, hopefully whether it's a deeper understanding of themselves or a deeper understanding of something that's outside of what they might expect from a former pop star. You know, I want everyone to feel smarter when they come away from this. Even if they just go, well, that's a really pretty picture of Tilda Swinton. Isn't she a magnificent creature? Well, yes, she is. She also represents a ton of stuff that this book explores. And that's why she's on the cover. But anyway, I want everyone to step away feeling smarter, you know? That's one of my great heroes as Dolly Parton. And I think she's really good at describing her intention behind her work the same way. Everyone should feel lifted by and a part of what the piece is. The thing that I like so much about the books though, is that they, while they are really inclusive, I don't think that they would exclude anybody. They have different ways in. So in terms of your brand new book, that to me feels more like a play, a play with different parts. You're going through it. There are very distinct emotions that you experience, whether you're looking at ceramics, whether you're looking at photographs. I think there's something kind of almost installation Y about it, whereas our interference times feels much more conceptual. It's much more abstract. It feels like you're diving into an experience. And a lot of the photographs feel like they're surrounding you, whereas in still life, portrait still life, you feel like you're going into something. If that makes any sense. You completely nailed it. I'm my mouth is hanging open. I can't believe that you just said what you said about the new book, because all the work that I'm doing right now is actually from if you can picture two things uncle vanya and the film Birdman. So a lot of it is coming from a proscenium stage using language of the theater and conceptually using all these ideas of being either an actor or someone on the side who's watching who's a significant and important part of the production, but not in the public eye. So I'm using all these and God knows there's tropes and there's layer upon layer upon layer of stuff around that. But that's what I'm using not only in this book, but in all the work that I'm doing right now in the studio. And you just nailed it on the head with no provocation at all. I'm super excited. That's super exciting to me, Debbie. Thank you. Well, I'm really loving the work and I think especially portrait still life feels like it needs to be explored materially if that makes sense, like in a location. Thank you. It will be in Milan, fall of 22 at the ICA Milano, the institute of contemporary art. They're doing my first giant exhibition of my work and it's going to focus on these three books. The vases that are in the book, which are real vases that were photographed made by the ceramicist Caroline Warner and the books which are real books. But in that language that we were just speaking of the theory. They're photographed to look like a digital image of a book rather than a real book itself. And so what you're looking at is a real image that looks like a fake image, and if you look closely, you just get a little shadow here and there. And you realize that the background of the books, the edges of the books are not exactly the same from one picture to the other. They are real. And so they're going to be a part.

"There are intriguing. Parallels between battelle and george gershwin another brilliant energetic jewish kid who infused the classical canon with the buoyant new genre. He loved tells most arresting scores. Tend to fuse. Both ends of his musical education succession is eighteenth century court. Music married to heart. Pounding beats moonlight chops and screws a classical piano and violin duet as if it's a three six mafia track what i've found in the past jon. Burlingame told me is that people have found it impossible to incorporate such modern musical forms as hip hop into dramatic underscore for films. When nick did it and moonlight. I was frankly stunned. I didn't think it was possible. Hip hop was tells initiation to the fragility of sound how it could be sampled stretched and broken and somehow through the breaking made more powerful. He loves hearing a story in the sounds around notes. The hiss of spun vinyl or the musicians breathing. Battelle signature may be music. That's been through. Something as barry jenkins puts it a productive line of inquiry for the two of them has been. How can we break this. Take the scene in beale street when daniels struggles to tell funny. What happened to him in prison. Arabe unmistakable. In james baldwin's novel that the movie seems to allude to through tells music and brian tyree. Henry's remarkable face on the surface. Miles davis plays cooley on a record player but underneath brutal has taken the cello from arrows which scored an early romantic scene and bent them. We talked abounded almost like we were harming them. He told me hurting the sound making. It feel like the sound is damaged. you find. Similar damage in tells breakout score for the big short as the movie opens in the nineteen seventies. Funky horns are the sound of irrational exuberance. Later when steve corrales character realizes the industry is built on forty years of sand. They return as a faint wine. Like a chastened mosquito. That's what happened to his understanding. Brutal said it's been mangled and stretched out and transformed the question of what hip hop means for. Brazil may come together most concretely. On succession he had read the pilot script and visited the set without a mckay. Who suggested him for the project. The show had to have gravitas. Jesse armstrong told him but it was also deeply absurd and the music would have to both these things at once. It wasn't clear how brutal could make that happen. Then he started thinking about kendall roy one of the heirs apparent who anchor the show. The first thing you see brutal said is. He's in the back of this car. Robbing to the beastie boys. It's hard not to think about kendall as a failed retell a parallel universe version of what he might have been if he had stayed in finance a wall street bro who hides inside his headphones and disconnects from the world. He chose the scene a young man wrapping earnestly inside a chauffered car offered a window into how the roy's self conception might contrast sharply with their destructive incompetence. What if the sound that they imagined for themselves was this dark courtly late seventeen hundreds harmonic sound brutal asked himself. I played jesse some of these chords. He said and he was just sort of lake. Yes it was just a wonderful hairs on the back of your neck feeling that you don't often have armstrong told me to get that feeling to feel like. Oh my god. This is something which just feels like the show. The waltz like rhythm reflecting the unsteady dance between the three central siblings was a smart insight that continues to shape the way armstrong writes the series. The show is addictive title. Sequence was the last recording battelle made for season one he had structured the season's music like a symphony the title theme like an overture. Introduces you to all the elements you'll hear in the show which propel recited for me the beguiling melody the d. tuned pianos the cello melody. The idea of these huge beats the weird sleigh bell. The sleigh bell. That's its own thing. Brutal admitted that actually doesn't appear in other parts of the show. The main theme is everything but brighter. You're presented with these ideas so you will both recognize them but also notice how they change. And you'll have this set of expectations. This is the world you're about to enter. When patel sent the title theme to the production team. He reminded himself. The nature of his profession is adapting easiest to coming up with a hundred ideas presenting a director few dozen and possibly seeing them all rejected but he also thought. I really don't know what to do if they don't like this. I'll never forget it. Brutal said jesse sent an email back and he was like i think the right words for this are as jenkins and i sat on the little studio couch. Mattel played an early sketch for the opening of the underground railroad. A violin bent into a brass fanfare. And then a piano walstein suggesting mystery another winding melody that makes bewitching missteps at this point he and jenkins had about three hours of music drafted and at least as many still to go. He scroll down a long list of file names some of these things. We have a sort of very loose amorphous idea. He said hitting play on another piece. So this is an idea of descending downward. I think this comes from the sakata jenkins said just that one melody. He started singing softly. Doo doo. doo. Doo jenkins had been making recordings onset. Collecting natural sounds the battelle would pitch down to make instruments. The piano track. He'd played me earlier. Started out as a field. Recording the whistle of cicadas and bird noise and airy crackling that turned out to be cotton. I just do plato. With some of this audio battelle said filtering out high frequencies and adding reverb until the cicadas sounded blurry and spectral in one track an insect caught in the plato turned into a bell. Tolling the same three ghostly notes. We don't know what that is by the way jenkins said we just call him fred now. Brutal started in new piano track jenkins and this piano was to match. Burtel trying to match fred's melody jenkins. So fred. the bug has to get a co producer. Credit jenkins had also been drawn to the noises of the human environment during the shoot. We were shooting down in savannah. He said and there was a construction site next to our said and i was like oh. That drill has a really nice rhythm to it. And so i had the pa's go out and record it and sent it to nick. Rebels started laughing. I remember getting these texts from you. In the middle of the day he said and it was just noise. There's a slight willy. Wonka vibe to propel in his studio and as i processed fred and the drill he and jenkins grinned like the inventors of the everlasting gob stopper overtime the to have grown more comfortable with thinking about a score in terms of manipulated recordings not just a composition for instruments. If everything's in context bartels said. The drill is music in moonlight. They used ocean. Sounds in beale street. Subways they were looking forward to getting new fire. Sounds we actually do have people onset..

Pdf's i'm probably on wikipedia thirty forty times a day. I'm googling all over so at at some point you know your eyes get tired. You know she got old like me and so. I think there's a limit to how much time you should spend. And especially when. I say special young people doing it in dark rooms and stuff in the contrast between the bright screen and the darkness around you. I don't. I don't think to do that long term. I guess these movie critics sit there and watch fifteen movies in a row. They figured out how to adapt to it. But none o- books are just an and i don't know if you've looked at the numbers but you know Print books are growing faster than he books and have been for several years bookstores. Which you really been the ringer with amazon. Everything they've bounced back. The best independent bookstores in the country. Now are doing pretty well. The ones that are allowed to open people people understand. And and get the idea books. And i see more and more websites about books. The best books to read fiction non fiction. So i think the trends are going the right direction and and books are going to around forever. 'cause i think about. Oh what are all these books going to be worth. When i die and are they going to be worthless. They just take them and put them in the dumpster. Or are they going to be worth a fortune I hope the ladder because the money will go to my favorite charities. So how'd you organize your books. Do you do we decimal system or do you have your unique jerry hoover in my head in my head Each of my rooms here this. I found just a bargain on a community. Health clinic with like thirty. Some little exam rooms that had gone broke and was sitting here vacant for a couple of years in this little historic railroad town flat tonia taxes and a and i. So that's the place for me to move to so each room is a different subject. There couple subjects take two rooms and the rooms are different sizes. Pick me about three months to plan out all two hundred bookcases of sixty thousand books. What went wear how many i have each subject and Fit him in small rooms in big rooms. I've been told on advisory council of the graduate school of information at the university of texas at austin and that used to be the library school we still trained librarians. But we the school also does User experience and how to use the web and all that but they told me that when a big library gets a gift of some big private library one like mine that they often find that the owner has had their own system and they usually learn from that they see a different way of connecting things. And i learned haven't developed with my friends bookstore chain. I learned there lot of books. I never realized but a lot of books can go into two subjects. You have books that are like about philosophy and physics. So go and phosphate or is it going. Physics bookstores have a biography section. But if you have a goofy of george gershwin or ebor stravinsky. Is that going to music. Section is that going to biography section. And it's very difficult to put a book in two different sections and keep track of that. That really challenges the technology to make that all work. And you know if you sell out in one area and forget to refill it so you pretty much have to put them in one place or the other. So no. I essentially have my own system but but i think went when when i move onto the big library in the sky my house will become a used bookstore and i think most good book collectors will find it. Great because Oh that's the railroad room. Oh those are the two architectures that's the nature. That's the bird book. Cabinet the cabinet or bookcase. The tree book section so for most people.

"Song is a cover of the beatles all my loving by the group holly ridge strings. Who specialized in lush string versions of popular songs released on commercial records. It was released just months after the original came out in the us in nineteen sixty four. This song came out. As beatle mania was sweeping america but the holly ridge strings version of the song was still so popular that it managed to crack the billboard hot one hundred singles chart they would later go on to release five five full albums of instrumental beatles song today.

It served forty three of the fifty largest industrial companies in america it was even reportedly played on the apollo eleven mission to help keep buzz alternate and neil armstrong calm. But in retrospect this was a crucial moment for muzak whole new way of thinking about music was on the rise and it would soon become mainstream and music was not in line with the new mainstream at all if in decades past the more or less swam in line with the currents of popular music. Now they started to actively swim against them. It's most notable in their adaptations of pop songs. They were still recording standards. By composers like cole porter and george gershwin at this time but they would look at the singles charts and see what they could reasonably adapt rock and roll songs were ignored but they would take on softer tracks from groups like simon and garfunkel in the beatles and they sounded and felt.

Polly, the big loved it. Marquees. Chris. Keep hitting them. Dude. Love that. Here's cur on centers taken big threes. Well, you know, it's the way of the world these days. Everybody practices threes, so marquees has worked really hard. On when his three point shot. I think he made a few of them. You know, we we've got, you know all of our bigs out there every day in practice, stretching the floor and you know, with the ability to knock that down, and it keeps the defense honest so We take 43 3 pointers tonight so He took 42. This is this is the modern MBA. This is the modern India. Yeah. Where is George Gershwin in the mid range. Aw, dude. Where's Bernard? King On the basis of the names. Give me another one. Give me one more. Uh, we're sure Shaun Livingston from 2014 range, Right, living in one of the great jump shooters. He didn't have to go out to the three point line, right? You know, it's funny, you know? For all the kids out there playing basketball. I mean, you know what? We're going to grow up thinking That's how the game is played. Yes, it's too early to start working on your free. Yeah. Yeah, well, that's all that most kids want to do like. If you watch kids like just before, like a practice starts and the balls and just kind of rolling around the gym and stuff what most kids will take the ball, go right to the three point line and you start throwing them up. Yeah, You've seen it. I'm sure you've seen it. There's something about that line. Yeah. Yeah, well, I really want to be like stuff like that. There was a big step Curry effect. I think on the youth playing the game because they all want to be like stuff and hit that long distance Texas, saying it was negative effect earlier, it was remember fundamental game drive a dish. What's funny about that, though, in hearing her talk about the big men like with the way Big men are just sort of built and used in today's NBA game, That's a factor too like it's not just all Steph Curry and said, a big man now has to be able to stretch out like you. Almost. You want to Dirk Novitski type player who can shoot the three and who can bang in the paint like it helps you team to have a more versatile players Kind of like with an edge rusher in the NFL now like you almost have to be able to drop back a little bit, but also attack at the line of scrimmage. I feel like big men have to be able to doom or if they want to play. Four quarters because the game is just it's conducive to having to stretch out and beam or more agile in London. I mean, they want part of those video. The Warriors released the other night was the other day was James Wiseman shooting threes. Well, he was out there and bother. They made sure to release one where he stroke three in a row. Which, by the way, look, I mean, of course, it's not gonna be accepted me that way every time, But when he does stroke three in a row, it's it looks majestic. Looks cool. Yeah. Yeah, but it's funny coaching kids, and I'm sure you're talking to a lot of moms and dads out there who coached youth basketball. Although You know, in the pandemic indoor basketball is one of the worst like did you see what we need to talk about that New California High school our youth sports guidance thing that got released on Tuesday, which is pretty exciting, or Monday, which kind of opened the door to the possibility of late January, actual games being played again in California. Which is pretty exciting. But indoor basketball was like the last on the list in terms of just spreading the virus. One of them wanted to let them be played. Like things they're saying they think they can let high schools Start playing golf matches, which is a no brainer. I mean, coaxes out playing yesterday. I'm I'm playing Friday and Saturday and all that. But on then baseball, that's a big one. For all of us. I know a lot of our listeners, Aaron Youth baseball that they're saying that that one can get greenlighted pretty quickly, too. Going to revisit it again in January, but they're saying it possible but I was really depressed. I was reading down the list, and then it got to indoor basketball is one of the last things they're gonna let happen in California. Which is tough. Yeah, he really is. One ball to one kid touches the Balinese down Now. Just 100 around. Yeah. How terrible. Seriously. I mean, that's what you can't deal with talking about the ways of passing the room catch here.

Apocalyptic Battle for Take-Out Dollars: Uber Eats Pits Star Wars against Star Trek
"A. From wondering David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Wednesday September thirtieth. It's hardly a stretch to say that the pandemic has been delivery services, best friend, take-out meals, or so much more attractive when we're avoiding other people that's meant a surge in revenue for leaders and Hungary rivals Uber Eats and door dash in the second quarter ubereats. Gross delivery bookings totaled almost seven billion dollars a jump of well over one hundred percent from q one. Before we all started eating in as a privately held company door dashes keeping a lot of data to itself but the number of people using dash doubled from ten million last year to twenty million now according to research firm Emarketer. Possibly, to Ubereats Chagrin Jordache became so ubiquitous that it was responsible for more than half of all US meal delivery in April. Wow. That's according to market researcher. Edison Trans last week linked in named DOOR DASH number two on its list of top fifty startups based in part on exuberant hiring plans. The companies expected to go public by the end of the year Uber eats holds about thirty percent of US market share despite their rapid growth neither door dash nor ubereats has yet turned a profit chew on. Then these rivals are employing ever more creative marketing strategies in their efforts to. Become or remain top takeout dog ubereats constructed a quirky ad campaign that celebrates competition itself a sort of Meta Mezei the latest ads featuring unusual rivalry between get this star wars and star Trek. They star none other than Mark Hamill Luke skywalker in star wars and Sir. Patrick Stewart's Star Trek's Captain John Luc Picard they compete ferociously almost grimly in games of air hockey and connect for. But when an uber driver delivers a delectable dish, each breaks the foreboding mood to politely thanked the driver in this Ad. Stewart. Armed with Cricket Bat and Hamill carrying a baseball bat in a dark empty warehouse. Tonight. I'll be eating a Veggie cheeseburger. On Shibata. No tomatoes. Tonight I'll be eating four cheese. Tortellini. With extra tomorrow. Tony. Stewart so it's come to the. Thank you. Proper. Part of what makes the spot? So amusing is that the argument tomato tomato is, of course from the classic George Gershwin. Song, let's call the whole thing off. But of course, neither UBER EATS NOR DOOR DASH is planning to call the whole thing off quite the opposite if takeout became essential in March, it's remaining. So in could see even more growth this winter, a second wave of the virus causes more lockdowns. In Uber Eats case, the company says the campaign celebrating rivalries already been a huge success in Australia Taiwan Japan, where it launched last year and ad featuring Kim Kardashian and a fictional Australian character pushed uber eats brand awareness in Australia two levels quote on par with McDonnell's the company told Ad Week the new Stewart Hamill Lads bring the campaign to the US in Canada but whether the cleverness of ubereats his ad campaign can steal away

Welcome, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor!
"Not during a scene with her finish said later, my new I was acting, but my heart didn't and my body. Certainly didn't I won't discuss it more because of the degree of intimacy involved. That was Finney the chemistry between the two is unmistakable Harris writes, and perhaps at its most powerful during the scenes when you're wondering whether Mark and Joanna should stay together at all a counter to your point about the Manzini score. He says, Don and gives their dilemma a great glossy coat from the gorgeous animated opening credits by 007 genius MAURICE binder to what may be the most melancholy romantic theme, Henry Mancini ever composed and then on its poignancy. He says undone in steady hand to for the road. Does what only a Hollywood movie can do it convince you to beautiful movie stars tooling through France and car are just like us. It's everybody's marriage. That's on trial in this film. If you've ever failed to let a fight go or said one thing too many or kept silent rather than apologize. You're likely to recognize a bit of yourself in the shards of the Wallace's the point about how they're just like us the scene that I think does that. So well is when they are forced to stay in the chichi hotel and have to kind of dodge around the fact that they can't afford to tell the restaurant. I mean, those charged for it is just a great secret. So fun so two for the road, my choice. Maybe Mark Harris's choice. If indeed he was participating in the marathon Thanos pick. I know it's not your choice though, Josh. And you know, what it's also not the choice of another guest. We have teased at last week that my daughter Sophie has been watching all of these films with me the first film finding marathon any of my children have fully participated in. And she wanted to play along and weigh in with her choice for best picture. I'm Sophie Manar in my awards for best picture goes to funny face. I was sucked in soon as the bundle of pink fabric hits the camera during the opening number it sets the tone for the whole movie fun wins ical, vibrant that. Coupled with an excellent performance from Audrey Hepburn led to experience where to quote, my dad. I couldn't wait to rewatch it as I was watching it. So there's my daughter quoting me quoting same van Haldeman? But that's fine. We'll go with it all goes round and round. Well, I knew Sophie was sharp. But this seals the deal. I mean, she she got the pick. Right. Funny faces the best picture of this marathon. I'll admit I probably enjoyed charade as much while watching it. But I think for me funny face has those musical production numbers that just are going to put it over the top. If you're comparing the two not only what I've already mentioned in these awards, but how about on how to be lovely that satirical, duet with Hepburn and Kate Thomson. I think that one really is crucial because it undercuts some of the movies fashion fascination that that they got into labout. That's great. Irene George Gershwin's. He loves and she loves I don't think we talked about this when we reviewed it at all. But this is where Hepburn an Astaire are at an. Outdoor wedding photo shoot. And they dance their way across a stream by lightly stepping onto a floating raft. I mean, here's another almost over the top Don touch could have been a pick for physio seen as well. So funny face. It's just stuffed with production numbers. Most of them quite delightful. Domine, of course, will forever be known for co directing singing in the rain. But I do think funny face has deserves a place in the top tier musicals conversation. Well, it's my runner up certainly for this marathon film. I did enjoy and has so many of those great done in moments. And touches that's our marathon. Are thanks again to Sophie to Nathaniel, of course, for all of his insights and launching all of these conversations. We hope you enjoyed this marathon whether you were following along or not and able to watch every film, we do have another marathon coming up. We don't have the date set exactly for when it will commence, but we're going to take a look at the work of Josef von Sternberg and Marlene Dietrich that collaboration. You can find.

Georg Philipp Telemann 3: Self-Taught Composers
"Hello. I'm Naomi Lewin. Welcome to classics for kids. Garrick Phillip Telemann never studied composition. He taught himself. How to write music turns out that's not so unusual. A lot of composers taught themselves. As a kid Edward elgar wrote music for a play that members of his family put onto entertain each other elgar never had any music instruction other than instrument lessons, but he wound up making a very good living as a composer. When Nikolai rimsky-korsakov was in the Russian naval academy. He met up with mealy Bollock ringleader of a group of Russian composers Rynski Korsakov thought that Bella cure. Ed had taught him how to compose. But after he was hired to teach composition at the Saint Petersburg, conservatory rimsky-korsakov's suddenly realized how little he actually knew about it. So he got some books and studied hard always managing to keep just one lesson ahead of what he was teaching his students. After he'd gotten started on his composing career Francie spoon. I got a few pointers about writing music from his teacher, but Poulenc was mostly self taught. African American composer. Scott Joplin was the son of freed slave Joplin figured out. How to play the piano all by himself, and he also figured out how to write the NO rags? Scott Joplin did eventually take college classes in music, so that he could fulfill his dream of writing an opera when American composer, Amy beach was three years old. She taught herself to read when she was four. She started writing piano pieces in her head finally any beach went to a composition teacher. But all he did was show her how to teach herself by studying the work of other great composers. Someone else who believed in studying the work of other great composers was Johann Sebastian Bach. Learn composition from his family members. He came from a long line of musicians who handed down the profession from poverty to sun. But the concerto was pretty new in box day. So he taught himself to write concertos by studying on Tonio vivaldi's music. Twentieth. Century Brazilian composer, Etabe LA Noche was a big Bach fan when nobody was a kid. His father took him to concerts and quizzed him about the music. He was listening to what are those instruments who wrote that piece eventually below Bush became fascinated with Brazilian folk music and ran off to perform with street musicians, then below Bush found a connection between Brazilian music and Johann Sebastian Bach. He wrote a whole set of pieces based on that connection. By the time. George Gershwin finally got around to taking composition lessons. He was in his mid twenties, and he was already famous for writing popular songs, which he figured out how to do all by himself. There's a story that Gershwin asked to famous composers MAURICE rebel and eagles Stravinsky if he could study with them, but they both said no because they really liked his music and thought he was doing just fine without their help. And of course, someone else who started writing music as a kid without the help of composition lessons was this month's composer, Georg Philipp Telemann. That's the jig from Gail Phillip Telemann sweet indeed next week on classics for kids. The Jake is up. I'm Naomi Lewin. I write classics for kids and produce it with Tim Lander at W G UC Cincinnati, please join me for a program of Jake's next time on classics for kids.
