"From Houston and speak to businesses and workers holding out for a full recovery. That's next time on one a be with us for 18 tonight at nine. This is KQED public radio. From NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Ailsa Chang. Um I'm Ari Shapiro. The ballots are in and the votes are being processed in the momentous Union fight at an Amazon warehouse in Alabama. It's a majority of workers vote Yes, it would be a huge union victory in the traditionally anti Union South, not to mention the first unionized Amazon workplace in the U. S. Joining us now from Birmingham is reporter Steven Facade of member station W. B. Hmm. Hi there. Hey. Okay, So what are people saying about this about what's the mood down there? So there's lots of excitement. When you drive around Birmingham and Bessemer, where the warehouse is located, you see lots of pro union signs. There have been high profile visits from people like actor Danny Glover and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. But there are very few workers in the crowd listening to them. Usually, these crowds are filled with Out of state organizer's and red Union shirts or local was in Blue Alabama Democrat shirts but just the same couple of workers at each events. Now it's possible workers or afraid of retaliation. Amazon has been very aggressive with its anti union campaign, lots of online ads and places like Facebook and Twitch. We've heard of mandatory anti union meetings for workers signs plastered across the workplace. So it's just hard for one Sanders visit to compete with the constant daily anti union messaging. The stakes are so high as we've said When was the last time there was this significant to union vote in the South? We have to go back to 2017, the Nissan Assembly plant that was voting to unionize and Canton, Mississippi, like Amazon, attracted a lot of big name celebrities on pro union workers told me they felt like they had the world behind them. But that's a big lesson of caution. For this Amazon vote outside enthusiasm doesn't necessarily mean worker enthusiasm. The Nissan workers at the time voted almost to the one against the union and many, many of the reasons I heard why the vote failed are similar to what's happening with Amazon, yet strong opposition from the employer and Both places pay wrote of Lee. Well, Amazon $15 an hour more than twice the minimum wage and Nissan not some workers were making more than $26 an hour and workers say they really needed those jobs. So there's a real chance of this vote could fail. Is there also a real chance that it could succeed? Even in a place like best Amar Alabama? Actually, yes, there are lots of union winds that happened in the South every year. If you look at Mississippi and Louisiana membership has actually been slowly growing for the last decade. The thing is, the big wins don't happen at places like Nissan or Amazon. They tend to happen at smaller workplaces with less than 100 workers, and it's just because he's unique and pains have become so expensive. And it's very easy for them to be outspent like a place like Amazon, which might explain why we haven't had a big union win in the south in the last nine years. Okay, that's Stephen. The saga of WB HN in Birmingham, Alabama. Thank you. Thank you. The world's oldest ballet company is doing some soul searching. The Paris Opera Ballet is addressing questions of race and racism in its ranks and repertoire. NPR's Eleanor Beardsley reports. The fall of 2018 La Traviata was performed at Paris's Bastille Opera house with a character in blackface despite most Western operas banning it in 2015 last month, another of Giuseppe Verdi's 19th century operas. Aida was performed on.

"Hello welcome to classes for kids. I'm naomi lewin from the name. You think that fronts schubert's marche militaire. The military march should be played by an army band. But schubert didn't write the piece for a band. He wrote it for a pair of pianists. Schubert never really meant for anyone to march to his march. But you're welcome to march along with some more marches that weren't written with bands or uniforms in the prince of denmark's march by jeremiah. Clarke pops up. A lot of weddings usually played by a trumpet. That march was also originally written as a keyboard piece and so was the world's most famous funeral march Frederic chopin stuck his funeral march in the middle of piano sonata. Pretty strange place for composers. Find all kinds of reasons for people to march when they're on stage in the opera. The prophet by giacomo meyerbeer march celebrates the coronation of the title character. A profit being crowned king an onstage march. That sounds exactly like its name is the triumphal march from giuseppe. Verdi's opera aida. The egyptians had just one battle and they're celebrating In the opera ton heiser richard wagner wrote a march for people who are filing into listen to a singing contest and of course the march wagner wrote for an event in his opera low in grin has come down off the stage and our lives Use the march that felix mendelssohn wrote for an onstage wedding. The one in shakespeare's play summer night's dream tchaikovsky. Put a march into his nutcracker ballet under the fantastic symphony or symphonie fantastique by actor. Barely ohs has marched to the scaffold. Where a guillotine is waiting to chop off someone's head movies have some great marches to like the one john williams wrote for raiders of the lost ark. I keep going all day with marches. That weren't necessarily written for people to march two. But i'll just wind up with the mush militar or military march number one by franz schubert The first marche militaire by franz schubert next month is black history month. So we'll be listening to music by the man known as the dean of afro american composers. William grant still..

"Alabaster wool performed by members of the Quartet and written by eighteen year old composer, William J., the performance of Williams piece, is made possible with support from the ads cap. Foundations Irving, Caesar Fund William and I spoke via video conference. William I love that piece. It's so colorful it's it's creative. In the way you take these three instruments and turn it into an entire soundscape I can't believe that that was just a trio. It was such a full rich tapestry of sound Bravo. Thank you such a great piece. As I've been saying throughout the show today we're making this special home studio episode during the height of the coronavirus pandemic and I like to think that music has been a really powerful healing force in the midst of all this it certainly has been for me and I found it really compelling that you William discovered a love for music at one of the hardest times in your life. Would you share that story? So my parents were immigrants from South Korea's and during my early years, it was pretty hard to come by with income, and for for a short period of time. We're actually couch. Surfing from places place, so it's really difficult and then to add on top of that. was also a difficult for me to. Just adjust in school. Because I was as constantly moving homes at one point and I back then I was really shy and awkward, so I had a really hard time, so school and home life was a bit. It was pretty difficult for me. Right and then through all this turmoil and struggle, actually ran across a a youtube video. Titled Moonlight Sonata. I didn't know what it was I thought was the car, but. I clicked on it and it turned out to be a music video. And it was, it was pure music and after listening to it. I was just sitting on my bed, just looking up and like I I just started balling crying and I. I didn't know why. At the time I asked know why, but then. Looking back I think that piece was the first one that really spoke to me. And then from that point on I was so moved by that I want to pursue it and also try achieving it myself. So, William you? You described your parents coming here from Korea and to me it seems like in that situation it must be hard to be a parent and encourage a child to jump into pursuing something like music, which is maybe not the most practical field to to go into. So can you talk about your parents and how they feel about this whole thing, the talk about like having music as a career was a it was a real thing at home, and the first few years were actually quite stressful and difficult, and so during those years. They try like encouraging to like steady other stuff, or like what everyone else does become a doctor, engineer or lawyer like one of the more practical fields and. I, do enjoy learning at school. But then the thing was that I didn't find. Joy In. Doing doing all those assignments I kind of felt empty for me and the only way I found anything fulfilling in life during that time was just music. And now have you. Have you expressed that to your parents? And how do they respond? Yes they want to support me, but they're hesitant. About it for a long time. And so. I want to prove that I can I could do it through sheer passion, aunt and hard work, and so over the years I actually I applied to a lot of competition, Scott and scholarships like the Herbertson scholarship and. Towards the later years of high school actually started cheating a lot and through that I. Think they have some security? Because I think for the most part, they just wanted security for like future and I totally understand that. Yeah, I mean what better way to show your commitment to something. Than to go out and apply for those scholarships and achieved those fellowships well. We've been impressed too, and that's why you're getting the Jack Kente. Cook scholarship from us. What do you plan to do with that? I'm planning on building a mini home studio. For for fulfill music, and so and also by a bunch of books and scores for me to have I want. I want to build a personal collection of scores to study awesome. That'll be a very cool thing for you to Amass I. Wish you all the best. Things are just going to keep going great for you. William Thank you. Thanks for being with us. The seventeen year old pianist up next approaches, the piano with the power of an athlete, which isn't surprising, because he's also the captain of his swim team, and as I was watching him perform over video conference I was amazed by these massive hands that he has so what rep for him to play than the music of Franz Liszt. His name is Ryan Gannon and he's from Redwood City California. Ryan I'm so impressed by the way you play this list first of all, tell everyone the name of this piece. So, this is lists. Paraphrase on these leto. And, Recoleta is an opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi, and that opera was written based on the play Lewa S`amuse by Victor. Hugo so a lot of generations of art kind of coming into this one piece. Yeah, and when list would write a piece like this. It was sort of the nineteenth century version of covering pop song on the piano. These these tunes would have been the hits of the time. So this paraphrase comes from famous scene in act three describe what's going on here and what our audience should be listening for in terms of the characters right? Here is a quartet four characters the Duke of. Who is a tenor rigoletto who is like a hunchbacked court jester? He's a Baritone Gilda, who is regulators beautiful daughter, who is also in love with the Duke and Maddalena, who is the dukes lover who Gilda is jealous of so? Right here is just kind of like MENA interacting with the Duke and kind of flirting and Gilder getting really upset, right and Rigoletto, the overprotective father getting upset in return. Can you play and demonstrates some of these particular characters, so we can get a sense of their personalities and the Music Yep. So. I I'm GONNA play the Intro of the Duke in the spare phase..

"Welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin. Can you imagine what it would be like to sing opera and be famous all over the world? When Denise graves was a kid in Washington DC. She never dreamed. That's what she would do when she grew up. I come from a family of music lovers and singers, and I was the Shaya st- member of my family, and I was always the one who was grasping onto my mother's skirt, you know. But I loved music I loved the freedom in that. Off. Yeah. Denise came from a very strict religious household. The only kind of music they saying or listen to was gospel in school. Her music, teacher noticed, how well she sang and suggested that she auditioned for the Duke Ellington, high school of the performing arts, that's when Denise discovered a whole new musical world for the first time in my life. I heard classical music, I heard symphonic works heard operatic, Arias, even jazz and folk music. I was mesmerized it spoke to me, and I thought I found what I'm supposed to do in my life. Denise had never seen an opera until she was fifteen and went on a school field trip. And we got to hear real live. Opera singers in a real live off on these territories, costumes, and some of them chat with us afterwards at just was there with my mouth wide open at this other world, but Denise never dreamed that she could be an opera singer until my girlfriend found a recording of leontyne price singing, Pechiney Arias. And she came to me, one dance Denise you've got to come with me to the music library. I just heard this woman sane. And you won't believe this sound and we went to the library in we listened to that recording until they kicked us out of there. And here was woman, this African American woman who looked like us, and she was seeing the strange thing called opera and we were in love. And we thought she could do we could do. And we made we shook that they this is what we're going to do. Denise took voice lessons worked hard and continued to listen to recordings, my voice teacher was teaching me. What the meaning of Lagarto singing, what is connecting one note to the next. And he said, Denise I want you to take this recording home and notice how she connects one note to the net. And I really think that did it. I mean I listen to the recording until everybody in the house was screaming. Give us a break. I mean night and day night and day and I fell in love hopelessly. One of the things that make learning to sing so hard is that you can't pick up or touch your instrument. The way you can, if you play something like violin, or piano, when she first started learning, how her instrument worked, Denise couldn't imagine how anyone could sing so loud without a microphone. But Finally, I felt powerful when I was able to make a big sound come out of my body that was supported by my body was created by my body. That. Now Denise graves can't imagine being anything. But an opera singer she loves learning new music, and playing you opera characters. When I walk into a theater, as Denise and I leave out as Carmen, getting to be these different personalities. That's really fun. When you see yourself transform I feel different, I do, when they put the costumes on you, and they put the Whigs on any change. Look of your face, and I don't feel like myself. I think my goodness, who this. I remember the first couple times that I was doing Carmen after got out of my fake eyelashes and my wig, and my costumes, and I stood in the mirror. I thought gee that other girl was much more fun than I liked her better just like when she was in high school. Denise graves still listens to all kinds of music in my CD player at home. There's definitely classical music. There's definitely opera symphonic works. But there's also blues jazz. You know, I still listen to gospel music, I love some of the pop divas that are out there. These days, the beat of the music, gives me energy when I'm on the treadmill and that sort of thing, and then other times, I listened to vanity. Triumphal March from Giuseppi Berties opera Aida, one of the operas that Denise graves loves to sing the triumphal March is one of those pieces that has become famous all by itself, even outside of the opera Aida next week on classics for kids music. That's so well known without the opera, it was written for that people have almost forgotten. It came from an opera, I'm Naomi Lewin. I write classics for kids and produce it with Tim Lander at W. G UC Cincinnati. Please join me again for more classics for kids.

"Welcome to classics for kids. I may me Lewin. Giuseppe Verdi was a politician a revolutionary and one of the greatest opera composers who ever lived. Sippy Verdi, that's talion. For Joseph greed was born in eighteen thirteen in the tiny town of natural Verdi's. Parents ran the village in. So they didn't have a lot of money. But when they saw how interested their son was in use it. They bought him a small keyboard instrument when Verdi was eleven he started studying in the nearby town of Boucetta. And that's when his musical fairy godfather stepped in. A music loving grocer named on Tonio. Patsy wanted to pay for Verity to study at the best Italian music school the conservatory in Milan, but they wouldn't let him in by the time very applied. He was nineteen older than the usual first year student. So the conservatory turned him down years later when Verdi was famous the Milan conservatory wanted to name itself after him, and he turned them down as he said, they wouldn't have me young. Now, they can't have me. Back then Italy was not a unified country. It was a bunch of separate provinces and city states at the time Verdi was born they all belong to Napoleon's empire later, the northern part of Italy where he lived was ruled by Austria. But there was a growing feeling among talion that it was time to get rid of foreign rulers and bring all the different parts of the country together. One of the earliest opera's Verdi. Composed was Nobuko about Nebuchadnezzar. An ancient king of Babylonia who held the people of Israel captive in Bukavu Verdi wrote a chorus in which he Bruce slaves sing about their country's so beautiful and lost. When talion heard that chorus called Bob Pensieroso. They felt Verity was talking about their country being held, captive, volunteer. Oh instantly became an unofficial national anthem for a country that wasn't even born yet. Verdi's music became part of the Italian fight for independence and unity. And so did he he held elected office hung out with revolutionary patriots. And even made a political statement with the way he had his beard, then Verdi's name became a political statement, the letters B E R D I are the first letters of the words in the Italian phrase Tokyo Iman waylay rate d'italia Victor, Emmanuel king of Italy victory manual was the man Italians wanted to be their king since Austrians knew how much Italians loved opera the Italians could shout. Viva Verdi long live Verdi with its double meaning right under the Austrians noses and get away with it. Lots of Verdi's operas have political plots and almost all of them are tragedies, even the ones from which music turned up later in some very funny movies like the Marx brothers night at the opera. Verdi wrote only two comic operas one at the beginning of his career and one at the end his very last opera Falstaff is a comedy based on Shakespeare. Verdi did write some music that wasn't opera, but even his requiem a setting of the Catholic mass for the dead sounds so dramatic that it's been called the greatest opera never written. Gary was eighty seven rich and famous when he died an enormous crowd followed his casket singing Seattle now music from Verdi opera in which the title character longs for her homeland. This is the triumphal March from Asia. Triumphal March from Giuseppi Verdi's opera Aida. I'm mayo me Lewin, I write classics for kids and produce it with Tim Lander at WG UC Cincinnati next week on classics for kids the story of high ADA, I hope you can join me then.

"Hello, welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin. When someone says opera, what do you think? If your answer is a large woman with long blond braids wearing a metal bra and a helmet with horns you've been watching too many cartoons. An opera is like a play. It's a theater piece performed onstage with sets and costumes. Most plays have some music in them between the scenes or in an overture to get things started. But in an opera the music never quits. Around sixteen hundred a group of talian came up with the idea of theater with music all the way through it. Instead of speaking characters in an opera sing their lines. The really amazing thing about opera singers is that they make a huge sound with their voices big enough to fill a whole hitter without using a microphone it takes years of studying practice to be able to do that. That's channel poverty, a very famous. Tenor tenor is what you call the highest male voice in opera, or maybe I should say the highest natural male voice men who have developed the very high part of their voice known as the full Seto are called counter tenors. The baritone sings lower than a tenor. And the lowest voice of all is the base. The highest woman's voice is a soprano. Women who are called contralto or mezzo sopranos. Mezzo is talion for half. Since opera started in Italy. A lot of the terms are in talian a solo in an opera is called an aria. That's another Italian word when two people have a singing conversation. It's duet. If there are three singers. It's a tree. You can go on and on any soloists opera. Also has musical numbers for chorus a large of singers with no solos. Once upon a time. I learned some other words to that chorus from Faust that have nothing to do with the opera my goal roasted a kangaroo gay me the recently end to choose while. I was that very nice thing to do to give me the grisly end of a kangaroo who to there are other. Alternate words in German that have to do with passing the potato salad. Speaking of words, by now, you've probably noticed something else that operas a lot of them are in foreign languages opera. Singers, learn to perform in other languages, but you can enjoy opera without knowing those languages because most opera companies in America project English translations of the words above the stage. So that you know, exactly what's going on. Of course, there are presenting Lewis. This. That's from an opera by my father, Frank Lewin. He based his opera burning bright on a play by the famous American writer, John Steinbeck next week a bit about one of the most famous of all opera, composers Duceppe Verity. I'm Naomi Lewin. I write classics for kids and produce it with Tim Linter at WG UC Cincinnati, please join me again for more classics for kids.
