Johann Sebastian Bach 1: About Johann Sebastian Bach

"Hello I'm Mayo Lewin. Welcome to classics for. Kids is one of your parents doctor or lawyer and maybe as far back as they can remember everyone in their family has gone into the same profession while that's how it was with the Bach family all of them were musicians Johann. That's German for John. Sebastian Bach was born in sixteen eighty. Five in the German town of is enough. His father was the official town musician. There by the time was ten. Both his parents had died so he went to live with his older brother. Who was also a musician? Of course Johann Sebastian. Bach turned out to have very fleet fingers. He played a mean violin and by the time he was eighteen. He had a job as an organist. Bach held three main jobs over the course of his life. You can tell where he was working by. What kind of music? He wrote the first box. Big Jobs was official. Court organist for the Duke of Weimar so a lot of box great organ. Music comes from early on in his career. That Weimar job also had box serving as concert master. The head Honcho violinist of the Duke's orchestra when the Duke of Weimar decided not to make him conductor of the Orchestra. Bach was pretty unhappy. Then a visiting prince offered a job directing his orchestra but when Bach tried to quit his job in Weimar. The dukes said no way he even threw in jail for a month to try and make its point but it didn't work when Bach got out of jail. He headed straight to the town of curtain to work for the prince the prince had a wonderful orchestra so Bach wrote lots of instrumental music. While he was in curtain eventually balk moved onto his last job at the Saint. Thomas Lutheran Church. In the city of Leipzig. His title was cantor. That's what they called the choir and music director and it was a huge job box trained singers organized music for several churches in town and for the University of Leipzig and he composed new music every week for services at the Saint Thomas Church most of Bach's great choral music was written in Leipzig the choir at the Saint Thomas. Church still performs box music every week. One of the coolest things I ever got to do was sit in the church where Bach worked and listen to the choir sing. His music while Bach was alive. No one outside the towns in Germany where he worked had heard of him and people thought of him as just another working musician after he died people pretty much forgot about him until a century later when another composer Felix Mendelssohn dug out some of Bach's music and performed it after that the whole world recognized what a genius had been and Faulk may even be recognized beyond this world in nineteen seventy seven scientists sent the unmanned voyager spacecraft off to explore the galaxy. They put examples of the best that planet Earth had to offer on board and one of those examples was a recording of Johann Sebastian box. Brandenburg Concerto number.

Johann Sebastian Bach 4: The Story of the Brandenburg Concertos

"Hello I'm Naomi. Lewin welcomed the classics for kids. That's the opening to the fifth of six Brandenburg Concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach. Why start with number five well first of all the concerto numbers don't really have anything to do with the order in which. Bach wrote them. The Fifth Brandenburg Concerto features a Harpsichord and the story of the Brandenburg concertos begins with a trip. That Johann Sebastian Bach took to pick out a new HARPSICHORD for the prince whose court orchestra he conducted. There are actually three solo instruments in the Brandenburg Concerto number five Harpsichord violin and flute. The harpsichord is an ancestor of the piano. But as you can hear it doesn't sound the same. That's because Harpsichord strings are plucked by teeny tiny. Quills in a piano. The sound is made by hitting the strings with small felt covered hammers. Here's a spot where the harpsichord plays alone. So you can hear it while he was on his trip looking at Harpsichord he met Chris. Jon Ludvig the Margrave of the province. That's like a state of Brandenburg. Margrave is a fancy title. They used to give to military governors of German provinces. The margrave of Brandenburg had his own orchestra and when he found out. Bach was a composer. He said he wouldn't mind hearing some of his work. Only own okay. There's the Brandenburg Concerto number one. It has a really huge group of Solo instruments. Seven in all Bach was thrilled that the Margrave was interested in his music. He thought there might be a good job prospect for him in Brandenburg so he pulled together a set of concertos mostly stuff he'd already written for the orchestra he conducted and sent them off with a very flowery letter to the Margrave the Brandenburg Concerto Number. Three IS FOR THREE SETS OF STRING. Instruments Violins violas and cellos. It's a good thing. Bach didn't hold his breath waiting for an answer from the margrave because he never got one in fact the margrave probably never even looked at these beautiful concertos. What A DOOFUS. Part of the problem may have been that his orchestra wasn't as big as the one baulk road them for so the Margaret didn't have the musicians to play them but he could have at least sent a thank you note. That's the six Brandenburg Concerto. It's also just for strings given the Margrave of Brandenburg's rudeness. You can bet that. Bach didn't name his concertos Brandenburg years. After he died one of Bach's biographers attached the name to them and obviously it stuck Bach called his pieces concertos for a variety of instruments which is a pretty good description since each one is written a different instrumental combination. The Brandenburg Concerto Number. Four has a small group of soloists two flutes or recorders and a violin. It's the violin that really gets to show off especially towards the end of the peace. The Selo Group in Bach's Brandenburg Concerto number two consists of four very different instruments trumpet Flute Oboe and Violin. See if you can pick them out.

Johann Sebastian Bach

"The young librarian Doug furiously through the wooden, crates, tossing aside books and manuscripts as he searched. It was the midst of World War Two and the young man had undertaken a reckless mission, to smuggle, some of the greatest works of German literature and music out of Berlin, he finally found the manuscript he was looking for an old musical score bound in cracked leather. It's once ornate lettering, now, faded by time in neglect, he stuffed the book under his coat and ran to the open door of the train. Car trees, whipped by illuminated by the glow of the bomb blasts, wrapping the score tightly in his jacket. He stepped back readied himself and jumped out into the cold, the librarian regained his footing on the rocky ground and made a mad dash for the trees arms wrapped tightly around his prize. The manuscript. The unnamed librarian worked so hard to save was the only existing copy of the Brandenburg, concertos, and obscure piece of music by German composer named Johann Sebastian Bach, though he saw success and acclaim during his lifetime balk never lived to see his fame spread beyond the borders of his native Germany. But by the turn of the twentieth century, a widespread rediscovery had led to a global obsession with the man's complex and extensive library of music today, the Brandenburg concertos are recognized as some of the best and most beautiful compositions ever written and balk is seen as one of the greatest composers to have ever lived.

You've probably heard this song before it's a prelude from box, the well, tempered, Clavier, a collection of preludes and few in the twenty four major and minor keys, meant to be used as an exercise book for students for reference, the Clavier refers to a family of musical instruments with keys, including harpsichord pianos, and even today's electric keyboards, if you've ever taken Pinot lessons you probably have a love hate relationship with this book for centuries, piano. Students have painstakingly plucked out the same notes striving for the level of perfection that beautiful piece demands and Bach a man who rarely held his students in high regard likely wouldn't have it any other way beyond just being a musical textbook the well tempered. Clavier is also one of the most important works in the history of classical music, also. So no pressure on that fifth grader playing it for their recital. Bach was part of what some call the three B's of classical music. The other two Bs being Ludvig van Beethoven, and you'll Hanis Brahms conductor Hans von Bulow referred to them as Bach. The father Beethoven, the sun and Brahms the Holy Ghost of music and father is a very good name for Bach. During his life, Bach wrote some of the most impressive beautiful pieces of music ever heard by the human ear. But many audiences from box time thought his music was extremely old fashioned and overdone and fact in the century after his death Bach was better known for his reputation as a teacher and organ virtuoso than his actual compositions during his lifetime balk never strayed beyond northern Germany, as a result, his reputation failed to spread much further beyond Germany's borders for decades after his death. Bach only became globally, famous eighty years after his death when composer Felix Mendelssohn performed box, Saint Matthew passion in eighteen twenty nine a note on context before we begin in earnest, the vast majority of Johann Sebastian Bach's, work was religious music for the Lutheran church, while he wrote a great number of secular pieces. Many of his compositions were written while he was the organist or musical, director of various churches and as such have biblical themes. Johann Sebastian Bach was born into a musical household. His father uncles brothers and cousins, many of whom shared, his first name of Johann were all skilled musicians at any given time you might hear Johann Ambrosius, the town piper of Eisenach, practicing his music in the attic for an upcoming celebrate. Tori performance other times, you could often hear one of the younger box, painstakingly practicing scales on pipe, and Clavier, and piano, and various corners of the stout. Wouldn't house Eisenach a small town in central Germany nestled at the northern edge of the third engine forest was already six hundred years old, by the time Johann Sebastian Bach came squally into the world on March thirty first sixteen eighty five the box where the preeminent musicians in Eisenach and their house, on the Fleischer, Gaza road was a bustling one as bog grew. He was exposed to an ever changing cast. Of players, including family members musical, apprentices and public officers that frequently came through the buck house door. His father's twin. Brother Kristof was a prolific. Keyboard virtuoso, well known for his fantastic improvisations on organ and harpsichord. He was the organist for the nearby town of arms dot and most excitingly to Bach was a great composer. Meanwhile, his father Ambrosius wasn't accomplished piper and directed, many of the public music performances in Eisenach. It was Ambrosius who taught Bach the violin and the basics of music theory sometime between sixteen eighty nine and sixteen ninety five before the boy was even ten years old and is unable Kristof introduced him to the organ during this same period, Bach showed in those early years that he had a knack for the organ, and it would become his preferred instrument for writing music walks. Happy, childhood was cut short when he was nine his mother, Elizabeth died in sixteen ninety four due to an unspecified illness, his father, Ambrosius remarried in late sixteen ninety four but died just three months later in February of sixteen ninety five with no figurehead to hold the family together. The buck children were scattered across Germany to their various relatives Johann Sebastian Bach moved in with his older brother who was confusingly named Johann Christoph, Johann Christoff. Was the organist at Saint Michael's church in order af- another town, about thirty miles away from Eisenach, if box time with his uncle Kristof piqued, his interest in the Oregon his time, living with his brother Christoff, truly ignited his passion for the instrument at the time the Oregon at Saint Michael's was in a horrible state of disrepair, and was almost unplayable, Christoph sought to fix the instrument as part of his duties as organist box spent many long hours of his preteen years in order of helping his brother repair, the organ, sometimes literally crawling inside the giant instrument to replace a hammer or fix a faulty joint. In return for box. Help Kristof introduced him to the composers that would inspire him for years to come like an older siblings sharing his record collection, Kristof took it upon himself to share his musical taste with Bach. For the first time, Bach was reading and playing the music of great modern composers Kristof introduced him to the music of his mentor. You'll Han Pakalitha bell, who's cannon Indy is probably familiar to everyone who's ever attended a high school. Graduation Christoph also widened box worldview. Introducing him to the French composer, Jean Baptiste, Louis and Louis marshawn north German composers and Italian. Cleverest Girolamo, Frisco, Baldy, the young buck was captivated by this beautiful intricate music in his time living with his brother. He studied performed and copied. The works of these great composers with an insatiable hunger to understand them. The sometimes got him into trouble. The famous story tells of how an adolescent Johann Sebastian snuck into his brothers studied a copy a particular score of Johann Pokka bell Kristof had forbidden, the young boy to do so fearing, he would damage the rare and valuable score or waste sheets of expensive ledger, paper each night, balk, waited until the last candle in the house was cold before rising from his bed, and creeping downstairs to his brothers study, there after carefully removing the score from his brothers library. He would lay it on the desk. In painstakingly copied the notes on the blank paper, he did all of this only by the pale light of the moon through the study window knowing an orange candle flame could give him away in the night. And despite all his precautions Bach was finally, caught by his brother after six months of sneaking around Christoph, promptly confiscated. Both the original score and box copy. He probably also kept the ledger, paper locked up after that probably, but Bach had been bitten by the bug and his passion for music, and composition only grew further.

Now back to the story, of course, you'll Hans a bastion Bach is famous for his greatest love his music. But what many don't know is that buck had another passion almost as great as the first engaging? In petty arguments balk was a genius. The brilliant composer, and an artist of the highest degree. He was also a continuous man who both took offence exceedingly easily, and who manage to Ilya. Nate people wherever he went it all started in seventeen hundred when he left Kristoff spouse at age fifteen by that year, Christoph and his wife had two children with third on the way back left the house in order off and went to school at Lunenburg far to the north where he sang very. Briefly in the choir and continued, his studies in music, bucket originally received a scholarship to sing in the choir and for church services in return for room and board at the school, but the onset of puberty lowered his voice, and forced him out of the choir. He shifted to playing instruments in the orchestra in return for lodging at the school after he graduated it quickly secured work as a musician impressing audiences with his keyboard playing so much that by seventeen three he was offered the role of organised at the new church in orange dot. The job was a cushy one balk had relatively light. Duties, good pay and beautiful new organ to compose upon. However, he soon found fault with his new position box issue wasn't with the church itself. But with the people he had to interact with their as part of his duties, Bach was required to oversee the choir he took offense because this particular duty took up valuable time he needed for composing music, not only that he consistently clashed with choir. They complain that his music was too complex. Whereas he complain that they weren't talented enough to sing it Johann, Adolf, Shaibah a composer and contemporary of Bach famously said of his music, since he judges according to his own fingers. His pieces are extremely difficult to play for he demands that singers and instrumentalists should be able to do with their throats and instruments whatever he can. Play on the keyboard, that this is impossible. The choir at orange dot wasn't just composed of singers. It was a large group of vocalists, and musicians by seventeen five the twenty year old balk founded difficult and draining to deal with a choir students, many of whom were older than him and wouldn't follow his commands, apparently this led to an incident in which he called a musician named Guyer's Bach a zippo Fugger taste in the middle of rehearsal, which has been translated as a week, bassoon, est, greenhorn, bassoon, est nanny goat, bassoon, est, and our personal favorite, a weenie, bassoon, est. Whatever the translation buck, wouldn't get away with hurling insults easily on August. Fourth seventeen o five Bach was walking home with his cousin Maria Barbara while crossing the town square. They came upon a group of rowdy students coming back from christening, feast dyers, Bach was among the group, he approached Bach while brandishing a large stick, and asked him why he had insulted his skills with the bassoon Bach argued back claiming that even if he had insulted guys Bach, there was no way for the man to prove it, it's not quite apparent what Bach meant by this. As the story goes. He had insulted Guyer's Bach in front of the entire choir. Guyer's Bach was enraged by box. Flippant attitude Guyer's Bach attacked Bach with the stick, but Bach was ready. He had taken to wearing a sword on his person balk at apparently grown, wary of his antagonistic relationship with. Students and had begun carrying the weapon in case he needed it for self defense. Now was the moment and he drew the sword. Luckily, the other students pulled the men apart before either was seriously injured though he had barely escaped a beating Bach was still angry. He complained to the consistory the regulatory body of church officials that ran the parish when BOK admitted that he had. In fact, insulted Guyer's box bassoon playing abilities. They reprimanded him ordered him to apologize and told him to try harder to get along with the students. No one on the disciplinary board thought to raise the issue of Bach carrying a sword to defend against attacks by his students. Maybe they were scared of him as well. Enraged by the consistory's response buck, demanded four weeks. Leave from the church. The leave was extensively for Bach to travel to the city of Luebeck where he wanted to hear the great organised. Composer, Dietrich books to Hooda play his four-week leave ended up lasting for months. Alone Bach walks the two hundred eighty miles from Arnstein to Luebeck in November seventeen o five no doubt very happy that each footfall was taking him away from his woes at the new church. He returned the same way walking the two hundred eighty miles back to orange Dodd and arriving in February seventeen o six known quite knows what Bach was up to during his few months in Luebeck, it certainly wasn't only listening to books to Huda. The composer had finished his performances by December twentieth. Seventeen five Bach was most likely looking for a new job. In fact, he left orange dot and the troublesome choir behind in seventeen o seven for a better paying position at the Blasios church in Mulhouse on as part of his job application, he was required to submit an Easter cantata, which is evidence that he was already beginning to be known for his compositions. Cantata is a vocal composition with instrumental accompaniment. They often involve a choir and performed in several movements many baroque composers including Bach. Composed great cycles of seventy two cantatas meant for performance during seventy-two. Holy occasions. Sundays and feast days throughout the year and the Lutheran church. Seventeen o seven was also notable for the young Bach win at twenty two years old. He married his first wife, his cousin Maria, Barbara Bach and Maria would have seven children together, two of whom became composers and musicians as well. But just to see had in our dot Bach found opposition to his music the congregation founded too complex and grandiose as opposed to the more melodic music that was gaining popularity at the time by seventeen eight. He moved again this time to the city of Weimar, the Duke of Weimar Ville, helm, Ernst hired balk, as court organist and musician, it was during this period of his life, that box started composing in earnest as he buried himself into his musical passion. He started to develop his unique and ground-breaking approach to writing music, and approach evident into Cada, and few in d minor. Whether it's a company ING the phantom of the opera silently creeping across the screen or being played by the mysterious captain nemo, deep under the ocean box Takada, and few in d minor has been made famous by its cinematic associations with horror. It's not known when Bach wrote the peace and some musical scholars question, whether he wrote it at all. But looking back to box by mar days, you can see how he honed his craft composing, different types of music learning the skills that would enable him to write such an astounding work of music. We've already heard a few bucks cantatas of which he wrote hundreds composed for solo organ, and other keyboard instruments off cappella and choral, music, and orchestral music on much of his orchestral, and chamber music, was written for solo instruments, like his violin concertos and cello suites, or duos or small on sambas of musicians. Buck cantankerous as he was, was actually a musical innovator. Commonly road four part harmonies, which were popular at the time, but we're many sought to make pleasant chords Bach enjoyed, experimenting often, adding surprising dissonant chords. He also wrote pieces with Mudge relations meaning that he would change the key throughout the piece, many instruments in the baroque period were incapable of changing keys without halting the music and retuning, one of Bach's passion projects throughout his life was tinkering with, and tempering keyboards to allow for a greater range of modulation within a piece, without having to stop and retune. Nevertheless Bach Inc. Modulation into his compositions getting at least one complaint that he was confusing. The singing with his work while he was an orange dot. Much like in his dealings with church authorities box seemed to take the light and upsetting both the status quo and fellow musicians with his compositions. He wrote various specific ornamentation in his music to noting exactly where singers and musicians should trill, slide or otherwise at a flourish ornamentation was usually a product of improvisation and up to the performer. So this undoubtedly annoyed some musicians, who felt Bach was being too controlling before we move on from Bach's musical style. We would be remiss in not mentioning counterpoint counterpoint was a popular style that characterized baroque music in simple. Terms counterpoint is a style of music in which two or more musical parts are played independently, but are interdependent on each other within the music. One example, is around like row, row row, your boat, each different part of roar. Oh, your boat is an independent melody, however when they're staggered at different times, and melded together, it creates a more complex piece of interdependent music from this principle. We get counterpoint from row row your boat. We get to Cada and fugu indie minor. Along with the music techniques. We already mentioned box greatest musical influence was famed Italian composer, and virtuoso violinist Antonio Vivaldi Bach transcribed nine of vivaldi's concertos during his life. This undertaking is seen by many scholars as the most important period in the development of Bach's own personal musical style prior to the Vivaldi transcriptions Vauxhall music as an intellectual pursuit, piecing complicated musical movements together to test the limits of the form, as we've mentioned, Bach was often derided by his audiences and previous employers from making his music, too complex, the volume on the other hand focused on musicality in simple terms. He wanted to write music that first and foremost sounded beautiful box work on the transcriptions led him to blend the two styles. Adding more emotional musical. Ella. Wants to his pieces while continuing to use complicated counterpoint this resulted in complex, but beautiful sounding pieces of music, which required both skill and a motion, we'll get back to box journey through the exalted musical halls of Germany in just a moment.

Now back to the story from seventeen eight to seventeen seventeen Johann Sebastian Bach stayed at the court of Weimar writing music for the Duke during this time he also managed to produce both the twenty four preludes and few of his incredible work, the well, tempered Clavier, as well as six children, four of whom survived infancy again, as was the case in arched, Bach was expected to take on responsibilities that were not in his job description, including directing acquire instead of arguing however Bach put his head down and did what was asked of him, he believed that his hard work would pay off with a promotion to the high paying and prestigious position of Capelle Meister, or music director, his hopes were dashed in seventeen seventeen when that position was granted to the previous. Capelle meisters, son. Bach was furious. When an invitation arrived from his colleague, John Baptist Vallone to hear a musician play in Dresden, Germany balk left, immediately in Hof, John Baptiste had his own agenda. However, he was the concert master to king, Augusta's of Saxony and was lauded for his mastery of the French musical style. But at the time a newcomer to Dresden had stolen, the king's attention Louis Shaw, the top harpsichordist in France was invited to play before the king. Delighted by the man's music the king instantly offered him a position in the court much to Jean Baptiste's chagrin Jean-Baptiste was upset, not only had the young upstarts stolen has position marshawn was also reportedly vain self centered and had an ego. The size of Germany Jean-Baptiste wanted buck to join him in Dresden to challenge, marshawn to see. See who was the better musician, always a lover of good feud, Bach, agreed to help his friend. John Baptiste brought Bach to hear Marcham play at the court buck, who, even then had a reputation among the musical community in Germany kept his face hidden throughout the concert, the second marshawn played his final note box stepped forward revealed himself and challenged, marshawn to a piano, duel Bach road out the terms of the dual and a letter they would each put together a series of musical challenges, for the other, and the best musician would win Marcham accepted the terms, what was first conceived as a small prank soon grew to Royal proportions that king got wind of the challenge and agreed to attend and pay the winner, five hundred dollars a substantial summit. The time tolerance were silver coins, and thus it's difficult to provide an exact conversion to today's German marks but we do know that in that time period, five hundred. Taller would equal to a sum of at least five figures in today's currency. On the day of the dual in audience of the Saxony elite buzzing with excitement assembled in the palace of the kings senior minister, general von Flemming, Bach arrived ready to play only to find out that marshawn was nowhere to be found a messenger was dispatched to track down, marshawn and return to short while later to report that the great marshawn had fled back to Paris, marshawn had apparently not known who balked was when he accepted the challenge. He discovered box reputation just hours before the duel and had chosen to flee rather than face the humiliation of losing to Johann Sebastian Bach. And the whole thing turned out rather well for Bach rather than participating in a duel. He ended up performing an impromptu recital in front of the most powerful men and women in Saxony when buck returned from this adventure in Dresden to the court advisor mar. It was with a noticeable spring in his step while he was gone Ernst, the duke's nephew and political rival had secured Baca position as Capelle Meister to the court of prince Leopold of Khuttan emboldened by how will everything had gone in Dresden, Bach tendered, his resignation and demanded. The Duke release him from service in response to this, slight the Duke had balked thrown in jail, but box seemed to take it all in stride. He spent his thirty days in the Weimar jail writing out preludes for the Oregon. The Duke finally agreed to release Bach from his contract, though. He made a point to warn him that he would not be providing recommendation to whomever hired balk next. Luckily Bach already had a job and was now free to leave Weimar's jail for Kootenai in seventeen seventeen the court of prince Leopold was a great place for musicians. The twenty three year old prince was. Music lover and a musician himself box musical output increased exponentially from seventeen seventeen to seventeen twenty three while he was in the prince's employ the prince a Calvin est allowed Bach. The opportunity to explore secular music, including dance music, which would go on to influence his later, compositions during his time in Kootenai bought composed the famous Brandenburg concertos which an unnamed librarian would save from destruction. Over two hundred years later, everything, seemed to be finally going box way. He had an employer who not only let them do what he wanted, but paid him well for it. Best of all, there was no choir of incompetent students that Bach was expected to teach he could devote all of his time to his own music over the next few years, Bach in the prince took a number of trips to explore the hot news ical destinations of Europe, in seventeen twenty they've ventured to Carlsbad a. Spa town just across the border from Germany in the modern day Czech Republic, but Bach returned to a shocking piece of news while they were gone. His loving wife Maria Barbara had died at only thirty six years old after a brief grieving period, Bach found himself in a whirlwind romance with a court singer named Ana Magdalena. They were married on December third seventeen Twenty-one Bach was thirty six and Ana Magdalena was just twenty on a contributed to box musical career during their time together. She continued singing and acted as a copy for box music. They would have thirteen children. Many of whom became musicians and composers themselves just a week, after and on a Magdalena wed, prince Leopold, married his own cousin Frederica and Reta on December eleventh, seventeen Twenty-one Frederica didn't care for music, and drew her new husband's attention. Away from his former mate, and favorite composer, Bach alternately departed from Putin in seventeen twenty three when he was appointed the cantor of the Toma Shula and Thomas Kershaw in Leipzig Bach spent the next twenty seven years in Leipzig composing furiously. In fact, it was said that throughout the seventeen twenty s he wrote at the furious pace of one cantata a week, even more astounding than box, creative output is how little, we have left of it out of more than three hundred cantatas which bought composed in Leipzig over one hundred have been lost forever. When buck wasn't composing, he had plenty of responsibilities to keep him. Busy of the twenty children. He had fathered with his two wives ten survived past their infancy balked. Delighted in teaching his children in the ways of music Justice, his own father had done for him as the cantor, he controlled the music program for the four principal Leipzig churches.

He was also pointed head of the Thomas Shula, a boarding school for choral singers, that sang in the Leipzig churches just like he had many times before it wasn't long before by clashed with the authorities of the church and the school it came down to an argument over quality and talent Bach thought he was better than the position of cantor in the bureaucracy of the church leaders was only holding him back leaders thought he was a mediocre talent in full of himself. Buck was sick of being bogged down by teaching classes and rehearsing with the chorus when he wanted most was more time to make his own music. It was in the midst of these disputes that balk took over the directorship of the collegium music in seventeen twenty nine this musical society provided most of the public music for Leipzig while holding this role along with his position as cantor. And head of the Toma Shula bought controlled almost all the music in Leipzig, and they're bug found his artistic space, he much preferred it to his official duties and would often skip the lessons. He was supposed to be teaching in favor of composing for or performing with a music him. One of his most notorious pieces from the time is popularly called the coffee cantata inspired by box love of the bitter drink. Schweik Steeler, plowed. Nicked or be still stop. Chattering was first performed in seventeen thirty five at Zimmermann's coffeehouse in Leipzig, the song tells the story of a coffee loving woman who rebels against her father who wants her to lower or caffeine consumption in the song. The female protagonist agrees to drink much less it resolves when she agrees to her father's terms that she drink only three cups of coffee per day on Bach himself new quite a bit about caffeine. It was rumored. He drank up to thirty cups of coffee a day, clearly, lock was distracted, the Leipzig church music come leaders even considered reducing box salary, due to his habit of dropping singing students in leaving for long periods without notice in their official reprimand, one of Bach's employers wrote the Kanter is incorrigible. However, they kept him on and the Leipzig years were incredibly fruitful for Bach in seventeen forty one when Bach was fifty six. He wrote an aria and thirty variations for the harpsichord popularly known as the Goldberg variations if you've ever felt sleepy listening to classical music, you're not alone. The Goldberg variations were supposedly written as a lullaby as the story goes Bach was commissioned to write it by count. Kaiser Ling a Russian diplomat who lived in Germany, the count s Bach to compose a sweet lovely collection of music to help him with his insomnia. They were performed by virtuoso organist and harpsichordist that lived in the counts house, Johann Gottlieb, Goldberg Goldberg would play until the count fell asleep in recent years. The story has come up against some pushback. Well, it is very possible. That goldberg. Played the pieces. At some point, he was only fourteen in seventeen forty one when they are said to be published, and probably was not a court musician for the count at the time whether true or not the name Goldberg stuck by late seventeen forties box health began to fail his one superhuman composition output began to wane, and he was losing his eyesight. While back wasn't diagnosed in his lifetime later, historians believe the cause was diabetes. It not only weakened box eyesight, what was also suspected to cause degenerative brain disease. Scholars of box life and work suspect this after reviewing the dramatic changes in box handwriting in his scores and letters beginning in seventeen forty eight in March seventeen fifty at age sixty five box is had gotten so bad, that he decided to undergo is surgery, even normally surgery in the mid. Mid seventeen hundreds was no picnic. But in box case it would prove fatal John Taylor. Presented himself in Leipzig as a traveling surgeon going from city to city to perform operations in reality. He was a shameless. Con man robbing people of their money before, horribly maiming or killing them with his cures he would perform two surgeries on Bach. I in March seventeen fifty and then a follow up in April the operation that Taylor gave Bach was bar Barrick the procedure called couching involved. Shoving a cataract deep into the eye with blunt instrument at sounds unbelievably painful and not only that it was ineffective to aid recovery. Taylor gave Bach eye drops that were supposed to help with healing. These drops were comprised of pigeon blood pulverized sugar in mercury. Not surprisingly. They only made box is worse, although he dutifully applied the drops after the first surgery in March and the second in April his health rapidly declined Johann Sebastian, Bach died in Leipzig, due to complications from his botched is surgeries on July twenty eighth seventeen fifty. He was sixty five years old. Jonathan Taylor was never caught or punished for his crimes, and would go on to blind possibly hundreds of people in seventeen fifty eight. He even operated on box contemporary, George Friedrich Handel, who he also blinded. Buck was famous in Germany at the time of his death in regarded as a brilliant in influential composer, however, after his death, his reputation put more focus on his prowess is an organised many of his beautiful works were lost or forgotten in only a portion was saved by Bach's, son. Carl Philipp Emmanuel's work collecting them, it would be nearly a century after his death that box work began to circulate among the European symphony circuit by the early nineteen hundreds Bach was one of the most popular and most beloved composers in the world.

Georg Philipp Telemann 2: Go for Baroque

"Hello, welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin. Here. Philippe Telhami composed during the period of musical history known as the baroque era, which ran from about sixteen hundred to seventeen fifty baroque doesn't mean that something needs to be Feick st-. It comes from Portuguese word for a kind of Pearl most pearls around but Faruk pearls are funny. Looking elsewhere early with lots of twists and turns. Suzanne bona is the host of the public radio program Sunday baroque, she knows all about the baroque connection to a misshapen swirly Pearl will really has to do with art and architecture and music and the baroque movement from that time period and the reference to the misshapen nece has to do with a lot of really gaudy stuff that worked its way into the music. A lot of very truly sounds and ornamented sounds lots of very fancy decorations put onto the art or the architecture or the music. That's by Johann Sebastian Bach. Suzanne bona puts him at the top of her list of important baroque composers, the others. She picks are George Frederic Handel. Antonio vivaldi. And this month classics per kids composer, Philippe Telemann. They were the composers who influenced a lot of other composers musicians around them. They had positions of thority writing for the nobility, and the royalty and the churches so their music was heard by a lot more people to Suzanne bona says the baroque biggies influenced each other to they heard one another's music, in some cases, they were friends with one another. So they all shared their music. They all borrowed or some would say stole from one another, and they all influenced all of the players around them. That's a piece that Johann Sebastian Bach based on music by a volley ball was a huge of all the fan. So how can you tell if a piece of music is baroque Suzanne bona says one way is to listen to which instruments are playing some of the instruments that you're here. A lot in baroque music are keyboard instruments, like the harpsichord. The Oregon granddaddy of all the instruments. You also hear a lot of violins. Also will hear ancestors of some of the modern instruments that we know why flu? Suzanne bona says one of the reasons she got interested in baroque music is because she plays the flute somewhere along the line. I thought it would be kind of neat to listen to music by my instruments ancestor, and that goes all the way back to the baroque era when you had people like the king of Prussia Frederick, the great who loved food and flayed the flute and wrote music for the flu. You might think that Suzanne Bona's favourite baroque piece would be for flute, but she likes the concerto for two violins by Johann Sebastian Bach and second movement makes me cry. Suzanne bona also has some Perot favorites that don't make her cry the Spanish baroque composers, wonderful Gosper San's has a piece called Canarios that makes me want a dance and crab Castano. Okay. You can put down the cast nets now most famous baroque composers took composition lessons, but Georg Philipp Telemann taught himself by studying what others had done next week on classics for kids music by some more self taught composers, I may only Lewin, I write classics for kids and produce it with Tim lantern at W, gene UC Cincinnati, please join me again for more classics for kids.

"Hello, welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin. The third movement of frontiers of Haydn symphony number forty five is a minuet a dance that was a favourite of French kings, and queens in the seventeen hundreds, the minuet is a very elegant dance performed by couples with music in three four time that is you can count one two three one two three as you listened to it feel free to dance along with today's show. After a while minuets were just for dancing anymore, Haydn and many other composers started using the minuet form as the third movement or section of a four movement piece, heightened, put minuets into a lot of his symphonies and Luigi buck Arini put this one into a string quintet a piece for five instruments. Minuets found their way onto the stage to in operas plays and ballets when twentieth century composer, Sergei, Prokofiev wrote, a ballet based on William Shakespeare's play Romeo, and Juliet, which takes place way before the twentieth century. He had the characters dance a minuet. There's a play called Lila's yen, or the woman from RO in which the title character never appears on stage. George say wrote music for that play, including minuet. Back in the days when people actually danced, the minuet both I'm adeus Mozart, put one into a party scene in his opera Don Giovanni as they dance. Mozart has the characters in the opera singer about what they're thinking. Some composers wrote minuets for family use Johann Sebastian Bach, put several of them into an exercise book. He wrote for his children to practice their keyboard instruments. Because he and his father and brothers all played string instruments and like to sit around making beautiful music together FRANZ Schubert composed a whole group of you for the family to play. The minuet stayed popular for quite a while in the nineteenth century Czech composer, bedrick Smith on route one for a ball in his country. But the minuet wasn't antique by the time French composer, MAURICE rebel got around to writing one. So he called it just that menu on the antique minuet was the first piece of reveals to get published. He originally wrote it for piano, and then made an arrangement for orchestra. The minuet was an antique to rebel, but it wasn't exactly new to Haydn either, what was new was the string, quartet Heiden was the first composer to write those. I may OMI Lewin, I write classics for kids and produce it with Tim Lander at WG UC Cincinnati. Please join me again for more classics for kids.

Gioachino Rossini 4: Weather in Music

"I'm Naomi Lewin welcomed classics for kids. Gioacchino Rossini was famous for his musical thunderstorms. He put a great one into his barber of Seville overture. Rossini put thunderstorms into several of his operas before they were movies with spaceships and dinosaurs musical. Thunderstorms were state of the art entertainment special effects so composers love to use them. Probably the most famous musical thunderstorm by someone other than Rossini is the one Ludwik on Beethoven put into his symphony number six after the thunder and lightning in that ferocious storm. The Sun comes out and you can just feel everything dry off and warm up In a set of symphonies. He called morning noon and evening. Frontiers of Haydn included a thunderstorm in the last movement of evening his symphony number eight. There's a lot of weather especially thunderstorm activity in Antonio Vivaldi's four seasons but Vivaldi wrote another concerto called storm at sea in which you can hear the waves being whipped up by the wind and rain lose one of the most famous circus. Marches is thunder and blazes. Boulos Food Chick. The thunder stuff comes at the very beginning. Henry fillmore wrote a march called Rolling Thunder. There was a composer in John Fields. Day who wrote a piano concerto called the storm so field decided to top him with a concerto called. The fire caused by the storm. Sure not only does field have thunder and rain. You can also hear the fire exploding. When Richard Strauss put a thunderstorm into his Alpine symphony he went all out. Strauss included parts for a wind machine and a thunder sheet a large piece of flexible metal. That you shake to make the sound of thunder. Even voices can imitate a thunderstorm in his saint. Matthew Passion Johann Sebastian Bach has a double chorus saying the German words. Blitzer and Donna. But this has nothing to do with reindeer. Blitzer and Donna are German for lightning and thunder. Just listen to how Bach uses the voices to make those words sound like lightning flashes and thunder crashes of course the mother of all musical thunderstorms is the one Gioacchino. Rossini put into the William. Tell overture I'm Naomi ruined. I write classics for Kids and produce it at W. G. UC Cincinnati. With Tim. Linter and Bruce Ellis.

Jj He gave a fantastic performance in the semis can be you have this long pause and then you just it's just like you gotta go so what what's going through your mind during finally difficult so I asked Jj about this ending and let's already had to say and then we'll return to the ballade to hear him do it we're listening now to the last few minutes of his performance of the ballade this is a piece which I personally love I love performing it but it's also terrifying Chopin's ballade number four s minor we're talking about over an hour and a half of repertoire to be at the highest level do you is memorization something that you would say comes easy for you or like a calf comfortable silences more like a waiting for something it's just we know it's like a deadly silence and then the CODA comes in it's like I want to ask you about a couple of specific things in that piece first of all what ensure you performed already in three rounds it's a lot of music those bars leading up to the code when everything is for the moment like the calm before the storm yes bars it's almost like how what's your concept for the moment before the CODA s because it's very scary right to perform an in that moment yeah this junk food right so how important is diet the five of the six semi-finalists but what about Keno explosion just torment and it's yeah you just go for it and what you eat during intense period of competition like this that'll change throw war and all those like bombs and everything and it's you know I feel like for a moment everything is silent silent but it's not it's not like a the jury how does that work I sat down with jury chairman. Seo Backs who is originally from Italy and one of the finest concert pianists touring today how does the jury make a decision in terms of who who advances it's very simple and I think I'm afraid to talk about this okay basically until surface great here I yell what is you have some barbecue steak steak Varga to hear this person again and so it's been been quite quite easy and the answer is yes no or maybe are you allowed to discuss amongst yourselves in fact we are not allowed to discuss anything Europeanist of course a very accomplished pianist when you hear a piece that maybe very close it's a great question I mean there's of course there's a bit of that on the other hand I know really well how difficult species is to you that you've performed a lot are there any personal preferences or prejudices that you have that you have to maybe suppress when you hear a piece like the bark roller something that is you know everyone has their own personal preferred approach to that how how difficult is that for you and semifinalists we've met were chosen to proceed to a third round okay so of those six semifinalists three became finalists and received the to come here to Dallas to compete in the twenty Nineteen Clyburn International Junior Piano competition twenty four of those were selected after two rounds the apiece you know because I know how difficult is so I think that the balances itself out Yup I I will never want to sit down and performance in here scoring coming from the music backwards that that I want to hear their interpretation. Yeah wouldn't WanNa meet here interpretation might not like it so I think that's a great answer how do you feel about risk taking in general in a competition is a competition place where people should be quite safe owner of performing a concerto with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Ruth Rinehart performers we've met who went onto that final round where John Yang who Piece that I know well played the exact same way that I that it's in my head I mean I want someone to to have a personal approach to the peace always of course respecting the Australia here's his winning finalist performance the third movement of the Piano Concerto Number Three by Sergei Rachmaninoff Ruth Rinehart Directs The Dallas we've had yes and knows maybes so no great points with the big question was as Jack Marquee issue of carbon said do I want we heard performed low Lieberman's Gargoyles earlier in the program and ever Gevorkian who performed Schumann earlier in the show but the winner of the whole Shebang it's safe or is it a place where you know high risk high reward absolutely I mean I think you'd need to be yourself there is no way that you can you're so I'm the first to feel nervous for kids and and you know once there they deliver a such great performances I want to be impressed if Symphony Orchestra they can be the most beautiful performance ever hear of peace and you can play the most unusual risk taking performance can also be the most beautiful performance and the first prize winner is the one semi-finalist we haven't met yet the absolutely stunning sixteen year old Schwann hearn Lee from Perth yeah predict how to police a jury and play differently I mean that does not work for me in the past I've always tried to play the way I play competitions and What you can see through they clearly as a jury member member is performance that's not honest with how you feel you can play very conservative Aw Aw yeah aw uh-huh from your semifinal round and you mentioned that in between pieces and before beginning you actually took a moment to say a prayer and I was wondering if Yeah right and close my eyes and just send to myself and I feel that without a divine intervention the music will not be able to a symphony orchestra under the direction of Ruth Rinehart I'm host Peter Dugan and as you'll now hear Sean is not only a powerhouse pianist he's also got successfully communicate with the audience or whoever's listening to it so I always pray for God's help when you look at the world around you Brilliant mind I started out our talk by asking him how he started in music so I know that we we spoke with you after you walk off stage we've been listening to sixteen year old Sean Hurley from Perth Australia the winner of the first prize music and arts with essentially critical thinking exactly open-mindedness. Yes I mean that's you don't need a strong argument what do you see in society if anything that that bothers you or that you wish that you could contribute towards or somehow changed really out of the blue but the happens because some brecon view in a totally different battle and you have to respect clyburn junior competition thanks for listening to this week special competition edition of from the top I want to thank all the fantastic musicians who attended talk about what your faith means to you and especially in terms of how that inform your musicianship every time before I perform always take time to like one of Johann Sebastian Bach's well tempered clavier of it yet but it has to be asked to be honest okay so here's the clyburn junior by the numbers two hundred thirty pianists from thirty two different countries applied aw that idea that other people can always think differently from you and that's one of the greatest things in music what an absolute joy and privilege it was to get yeah because I feel that relating back to the society question in our society today I don't mean to be critical but there's lots of conflict a better music teachers need to be thinking very subjective way I've started view things very relatively instead of being impose it on other people and music is one of those things that can really teach you that

Tue. 06/02 - The Introvert's and Extrovert's Guides to Lockdown

"Welcome to the good news ride home for Tuesday June second two thousand twenty Jackson bird a six month. Check in on the corona virus tld are. It's going to last long time where mask recreating what Johann Sebastian Bach music sounded like to him. The introvert and extroverts guide to thriving during lockdown and even more evidence that dogs are indeed very good boys. Now that it is somehow inexplicably June we can pretty much say. The Corona virus has been a part of our lives for about six months. Not that we really have inexact date of when it started but early, January is when it really started ramping up so with the first half of twenty twenty over the New York. Times took a pulse on where things are at. At, and what we know right now, I will have to live with this for a long time. Even the most optimistic estimates about a possible vaccine would be a year or more away before everyone got access to it, and while the cases are declining or holding steady in some places, the virus doesn't really show. Signs of stopping were in this for the long haul. Second, you should be wearing a mask. Quoting the Times researchers know that even simple masks can effectively stop droplets spewing from an infected whereas nose or mouth in a study published in April in nature, scientists showed that when people who are infected with influenza, rhinovirus, or a mild cold, causing corona virus wore a mask, it blocked nearly one hundred percent of the viral droplets exhaled as well as some tiny particles end quote wearing a face mask, it can also help prevent you from touching your face and as Dr. Robert at Mar an infectious disease specialist at Baylor College of Medicine says it's better than nothing. Third American public health infrastructure needs an update quoting again the united. States knows how to fight wars, but as the past few months have shown, the American response to pathogens can easily become a shambles, even though pathogens kill more Americans than many wars have. We, have no viral Pentagon. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is more of an FBI for outbreak investigations than a war machine for years under both the Obama and trump administration's. It's leaders have had to seek clearance for almost every utterance as war does to defeated nations. Pandemics expose the weaknesses of their systems. Our Patchwork and uncoordinated response has produced more than one hundred thousand deaths. Surely we can do better end quote fourth. Responding to the virus is extraordinarily expensive. The federal government has promised to spend over two trillion dollars on the pandemic. This money is going largely to vaccines, testing and economic safety nets, but experts say far more money is needed, and there has already been plenty. Plenty of debate about how the money should be allocated fifth. We have a long way to go to fix virus testing. We're now testing hundreds of thousands of people a day throughout the country far better than we were doing before, but public health experts say we'll need at least nine hundred thousand to a million per day, just to test hospital patients, nursing home, residents and employees returning to work sixth. We can't count on her immunity to keep us healthy apart from us being super far away from enough positive cases to even consider immunity, some doctors say the concept of enough people getting it and being immune, and therefore the virus dine out might not even hold up in this case. Quote Dr Paul Audit of Children's Hospital Philadelphia, and the University of Pennsylvania, noted that while some vaccines eliminated measles, rubella and smallpox, and almost eliminated polio in the united. States Vaccines Against Influenza and whooping cough have not stopped outbreaks, influenza and whooping cough have spread even after enough people in the community have been vaccinated to in theory. Stop the diseases. That's because the antibodies. Antibodies that protect people against viruses infecting mucosal surfaces like the lining of the nose tend to be short, lived end quote seventh. The virus produces more symptoms than expected. There's the shortness of breath coughing, but there can also be sore throat fever chills, muscle aches, headaches gastrointestinal upset a loss of taste and smell and red and purple lesions on the fingers or toes. In more severe cases, it can lead to pneumonia, acute respiratory distress, kidney, failure, blood, clots, stroke, and more. This disease is all over the place, and so much more than we thought just six months ago. Eighth we can worry a bit less about infection from surfaces. The studies proving how long the virus lasted on various types of surfaces, did not test for the live virus only for traces of its genetic material. The CDC has said since March that surface transmission is not the main way the virus is spread. Ninth weaken also worry less about a mutating virus mutations as viruses spread is common and usually insignificant. Sometimes the mutation does have a noticeable effect sometimes making it worse, sometimes making the virus itself weaker. But compared to other viruses, the new corona virus mutates relatively slowly, which is good news for the potential of effective vaccine, and finally we can't count on warm weather two feet the virus quote. A few things are known about conditions that do or do not favor the virus. The ultraviolet rays in sunlight helped destroy the virus on surfaces, and some studies have shown a small effect from humidity. It seems to last longest on hard surfaces like plastic. Plastic and metal it won't survive in pool or lake or sea water wind disperses it. Risk of transmission is lower outdoors than indoors. A wooden bench under a bright sun at a breezy beach is better than a metal and plastic recliner on the shady side of the pool, but if someone infected sits near you and coughs or talks, a lot or sings, it doesn't really matter where you're sitting. And how nice a day it is end quote. And the final word from the article quote, the bottom line wear a mask. Keep your distance when the time comes in the fall. Get a flu shot to protect yourself from one respiratory disease. You can avoid and to help keep emergency rooms and urgent care from being overwhelmed. Hope for treatment, a cure, a vaccine be patient. We have to pace ourselves if there's such thing as a disease marathon, this is it and quote. In interdisciplinary team led by Assistant Professor of Audio Technology at American University Braxton. Boren is trying to digitally reconstruct how Johann Sebastian Bach's music would have sounded to the man himself and everyone else listening back in the eighteenth century. Bach spent the last twenty seven years of his life as the Kanter at Tomas. Kurkova Saint Thomas Church in Leipzig. there. He wrote some of his most famous pieces for the church choir, including two hundred sixty five cantatas the Saint Matthew. Passion in mass in B, minor the acoustics and architecture of space can have a big impact on how sounds and especially complex musical composition sound back is known to have favoured Saint Thomas Church over others in the area and architectural acoustics, Pioneer Hope Bacchanal posited in the nineteen thirties that this may have been due to interior changes made by Martin Luther in the fifteen hundreds when he preached at Saint Thomas Church. Quoting the National Endowment for the humanities to test these theories born, and his team traveled to League together physical and acoustic measurements of the current Saint Thomas Church, which has been altered many times since the Baroque period. Omni Directional speakers allowed them to project sounds onto all surfaces equally in order to record the reverberation clarity and the amount of time it takes for sound to decay within the vast gothic church. These data were used to build computer simulations that would recreate the acoustic conditions of Saint Thomas Church, both as it would have sounded during Bach's time, and in the pre reformation era, these complex virtual acoustic models calibrate for the different reflective qualities of stone and wooden coral galleries, the absence or addition of drapes and tapestries, the depth of the church, and the relative distances between the instrumentalists, Saint Thomas, church choir and audience. The team's calculations also took into account the acoustically absorbent properties of the congregants. In a sound studio back in Washington DC in on some will recorded several versions of the CANTATA haired soon wound, and taught and Leben, which, but composed as his first year as cantor to be integrated into the computer simulations, a computational intense operation says Boren that had to be broken down into or Kestrel segments and quotes. The data and recordings will be released online later this year, during which time people will be able to listen to the CANTATA. CANTATA as it may have sounded, not just generally in the Saint Thomas Church, but from different locations within the Church and people will be able to upload their own recordings and run them through the audio filters, so they can listen to them as if they are sitting in church born hoping that such simulations will become a common part of musical scholarship and be able to inform analysis of musical compositions and instruct accurate performance of them going forward. And while we're discussing Bach I've gotTA plug to musical projects from a friend of mine. The first is called switched off back to play on Wendy. Carlos Synthesizer riff on. The classics switched on Bach in switched off Bach. Joe. degeorge plays Bach's compositions on an unplugged synthesizer, so that all you can hear is the tapping and plunging of the keys. In Joe's other buck tribute project in glove with Bach, he plays box invention number eight I normally, then again will wearing a thin pair of latex gloves, and then he plays it again in knit gloves, and on and on with progressively thicker gloves until he's playing it in boxing, gloves or sometimes mickey mouse hands. It sounds and it kind of is, but it's also kind of great and Bach experts. Love it, so if you WANNA, check it out links to his band camp are in the show notes.

When the lockdown started, and so much of our work in social lives were switched over to video calls I, noticed a lot of my extrovert friends struggling while some of my introvert, friends seemed to be thriving within a couple of weeks. However, the introverts were struggling to no one was enjoying. Video calls as a substitute for real human interaction. Every part of this experience is trying and stressful. No matter your personality type. However. Our responses and potential solutions to stressors can look different based on personality type. Bloomberg broke down some tips for coping during quarantine, using two pairs of personality types from the Myers Briggs test. You know the psychological personality test. Your work might have made you take that sorts. People into sixteen different personality types all with letters like I N T J or ESF P. Full disclosure here while I claim to be an e AF J. I've gotten different results almost every time I've taken the test which leads me to be more than a little skeptical about any very serious applications of the tests, findings, bullets, simple individual tips for coping based on your general personality type, and not on a hard and fast rule still seems useful so in addition to introvert and extrovert which I think. We're all familiar with this article also has tips for people who are judging or perceptive. According to Myers Briggs, quote, those who lean toward judging prefers structure and firm decisions. People who lean toward perceiving are more open, flexible and adaptable and quotes. One thing the article points out. Is that no matter your personality type, introverted, extroverted, perceiving judging deering the stress end unusualness of lockdown. You may find yourself swinging to the opposite personality type in ways you're unaccustomed handling, which is what can cause atypical outbursts or From other people. So to offset any of that here are some tips quoting Bloomberg for introverts find a quiet place to work. If you have roommates, retreat to a space where you can be alone or by noise cancelling headphones be more playful with colleagues. Take opportunities to chat. Make time to sit down and reflect on what's happening, perhaps having lunch in a quiet spot instead of eating at your desk. For extroverts maintain connections by taking part in virtual pub, quizzes or using zoom or skype to keep in touch with pals. Make your home environment stimulating by playing music, taking regular breaks to chat with friends or spending time outdoors. Ask for some quiet time if you need it. For judges try to move as quickly as possible to a new routine to overcome the shock of sudden lifestyle change dedicate a corner of the room for working since you prefer things to be compartmentalized change into work clothes each morning to create a sense of separation from home, life for procedures, mix up your days and change your work schedule to avoid sense of monotony consider taking longer breaks in the day and catching up with work in the evening. When necessary respect deadlines don't start shooting off emails at two am. That might cause panic among colleagues end quote. Advice for coping during this time is not one-size-fits-all so as silly or annoying personality tests can sometimes be. They can be really useful to get advice. That's a little bit more tailored, and to be cognizant of how in our lives may be struggling and how we can help. Ending today with some news about some very good boys, a new study from Arizona State University further confirms what we pretty much know. Our dogs really do want to save us when we're in danger so long as they know how to do so. The researchers conducted a series of tests with dogs and their owners to test. What dogs motivations to help might be. The tests included having the owners sit inside a box and call out in distress, having the owners sit in the box while quietly reading and having food in the box without the owner. The box had a lightweight door that could easily be moved by the dogs, but the dogs had to work it out on their own how to do it. About, a third of the dogs ended up rescuing their owners, but co author of the Study Joshua Vyborg says quote the key here is that without controlling each dogs understanding of how to open the box. The proportion of dogs who rescued their owners greatly underestimates the proportion of dogs who wanted to rescue their owners and quotes. The dogs were much more stressed during the distress test when the owners feigned that they were stuck in a box, quoting van born again when their owner was distressed. Distressed barked more, and they wind more. In fact, they were eight dogs who wind, and they did so during the distress test, only one other dog wind, and that was for food in quotes, psychologists clive win. Another author of the study, said quote. What's fascinating about this study is that it shows that dogs really care about their people. Even without training, many dogs will try and rescue people who appear to be in distress and when they fail, we can see how upset they are. The results from the control tests indicate that dogs who fail to rescue their people are unable to understand what to do. It's not that they don't care about their people next. We want to explore whether the dogs that rescue do so to get close to their people or whether they would still open the box even if that did not give them the opportunity to come together with their humans and quote. That is all for today and I. Just want to acknowledge here that despite the fact that we are focusing on good news on this show, most of the news out there right now is not greats. I haven't included stories about the ongoing protests in honor George Floyd and for justice for black lives, because this show is focused on sharing covid, Nineteen News, and then some good stuff as an antidote to that not any other very serious news. And while the point of the protests is righteous, and will hopefully lead to positive change. I wouldn't really classify news about the protests right now. As a distracting antidote from the realities of the world, just the opposite and facts that are meant to make us wake up and recognize reality. Worried that if I were to offer some of the few of lifting stories related to the protests come across as belittling the severity of the situation overall. That might change as the days go on, because frankly silence on the issue also feels wrong. Police said apart from updating you on krona. Virus News, the point of this show is to be a brief uplifting lifting distraction from the more serious pressing news of the day. Not, a distraction for your whole day, or from the real issues out there just a quick reprieve to reenergize us to face the harsh realities of the world and fight together to make it better. Talk to you tomorrow.

Antonio Vivaldi 3: Violin Concertos Through the Ages

"Hello welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin. Some people love to show off or perform in front of other people. A concerto is a piece of music. Which one or more solo instruments get to show off in front of a larger group of instruments and also in front of an audience? The starring instrument in Vivaldi's Four Seasons concertos is the violin. The violin was invented over a hundred years before Vivaldi came along but not the concerto concertos for Solo instruments were born in Italy in the late. Sixteen hundreds soon composers in other countries wanted to write concertos in the Italian style. Johann Sebastian Bach Pot himself to compose concertos by copying out the Valdis music as he copied out the parts box. Study what he had done and how he had done it based on that. Bach wrote his own concertos for most of his life. Franz-josef Haydn held a job that involved composing music for the Court Orchestra that he conducted in Haydn's Day conductors didn't stand in front of the orchestra waving their arms. The way they do today back then. The head Honcho violinist or concert master. Who is a member of the orchestra was also the conductor so heighten was also a very good violinist and wrote concertos for his instrument by the Time Felix? Mendelssohn came along. The conductor of an orchestra didn't play in it anymore. When Mendelssohn became conductor of one of the best orchestras in Europe. He hired his good friend segment. Davi to be the concert master head. Honcho violinist then. Mendelssohn wrote a concerto for his friend to play. Mimbo Cement Dhabi also helped popularize an earlier violin concerto. One by Ludwig van Beethoven Beethoven's Concerto never caught on during his lifetime which may have been because at the first performance of the piece. The violinist hadn't bothered to learn his music. He was sight reading seeing the music. For the first time. Which you're not supposed to do in concert. People don't sight read Beethoven's Concerto in performance anymore some violin concertos got labeled unplayable. Because they haven't found the right violinists to play them. The first violinist Tchaykovsky asked to perform his Concerto. Said it couldn't be done turns out he was thrown. It makes sense that the history of Violin concertos follows. The history of great violinists Joseph. Yokneam was the greatest violinist in Europe in the last half of the nineteenth century was happy to give advice on how to get around the violin to composers. Who wanted to write concertos for him? Like Max Bro. Up until recently most great violinists also wrote concertos for themselves to play. Not many of them do that anymore today. But Mark O'connor does you can definitely hear bits of folk music which is what. Mark O'Connor grew up playing in the PC calls his fiddle concerto. Fiddle is what folk and country musicians call the violin. Classical violinists sometimes call it a fiddle to even when they're springing into Vivaldi next week on classics for Kids Spring Fever with a show full of music for the season. I May Omi Lewin.

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.

Johann Sebastian Bach 2: The Sons of Johann Sebastian Bach

"Welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin Johann. Sebastian Bach was the greatest member of a musical dynasty beginning in sixteenth century Germany. Three Hundred Years. Worth of box held jobs as town. Musicians organist and choir directors Johann Sebastian's. Father was a musician. His grandfather was a musician and his great grandfather was a musician. All the male members of the family were trained by their fathers uncles and older brothers to carry on the tradition. That's by no handsome. Asean box Uncle Johann Michio or John. Michael Bah his daughter. Maria Barbara Married Johann Sebastian. Who was her second cousin? I guess that made her Maria. Barbara Bach. Pa IN GERMAN WORD MEANS STREAM BUT JOHANN. Sebastian produced a whole ocean of box. He and Maria Barbara had seven kids when Maria Barbara Died Balk married. A singer named Anna Magdalena and had thirteen more children twenty in all J S. That's short for Johann. Sebastian Bach expected his sons to follow in his footsteps and several of them became well known composers. Box oldest son bill him. Freedom on or W. F. Baugh worked mostly as an organist. He never quite lived up to everybody's great expectations even though he wrote some Nice music the fifth child the third son of J S Baugh was Carl Philipp Emanuel Norse EP. Aw He was very successful. Cpi box spent years working for the flute. Playing King of Prussia. Frederick Great Frederick. The great never went anywhere without his flute. Not even into battle so. Cpa Bach wrote a lot of music both CPI and W. F. were sons of J s Bach's first wife Maria Barbara Anna Magdalena Baw. Second wife was the mother of his youngest son. Johann Christian J C Bach was the most radical member of the clan for starters. He left Germany and went to study and work in Italy in order to get a job at the cathedral in Milan Italy. This Bach did something. Nobody had done before he changed. Religion converting from Lutheran Catholic and J C Bach. Did something else. His father had never done. He wrote operas after Italy. He moved to one of the hottest cities in Europe for Italian opera and became known as the London Bach. That's right people in London. England were crazy about Italian opera even or especially if it was written by Germans. There's a man named Peter Shakily who claims to know about yet another box son P Q. According to Peter Shakily until he discovered P Q. No one wanted to admit that he existed. Peterson says that's because PD Q. Box Stole Music from other composers and came up with things so outrageous that they make people laugh because it makes people laugh. Peter Shakily keeps right on composing. I mean discovering music Cuba that's from PD Q. Bach piece called Kanaya in Brooklyn. That's written for Double Reeds. When a COMPOSER SAYS MUSIC IS FOR DOUBLE REEDS? He means oboe. Zampa Soons instruments that have double reeds sticking out of the top of them. Blowing into the reads is what makes the instruments sound but PD. Cuba wrote for double reeds without Hobos and bassoon. Attached the words pretty funny to watch it to us to be home you know moves run grounding knows PD. Cuba may be big. Newton of someone's imagination but Johann Sebastian. Bach certainly wasn't at the beginning of this show. You heard a bit of his Brandenburg Concerto number.

In one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty three, he met the great Spanish guitarist under Segovia and a changed his work. From that time on Ponce spent a great deal of time writing pieces for the guitar. Nearly all of them dedicated to Andre Segovia. In one, thousand, nine, hundred thousand nine six years after their first meeting Segovia wrote to ponce requesting peace. The Peace Segovia got was differentiator sobre La Julia variations on La Familia. It's kind of amazing to think that in just the space of a few months ponce completed a piece that has become a cornerstone of the guitar repertoire. Here's how it begins with the famous La Olivia tune accompanied by some gorgeous harmonies. Music by manual PENSEE. Johann Caspar merits was a nineteenth century virtuoso on both the guitar and the flute, though I suspect not at the same time. He was born in Bratislav and toured all over Europe from Bavaria to Russia. Merits performed on various kinds of guitars, including eight and ten stringed instruments. He died of a heart problem at a relatively young age at fifty, but was posthumously awarded the first prize in the Brussels Guitar Competition Eighteen fifty six for his composition concertina. Oh Here's how Concertina begins. That was music by Johann Casper mattress it's. Just gone spits gable is a composer and guitarist who plays regularly with musicians of many different styles. Everything from jazz to Baroque music. In twenty, nine, thousand nine, he wrote a new piece for his colleague Johan Smith. The featured artists on this podcast.

The composer asks one would happen if the darkness emitted reflections, what would be their nature? What textures would they adorn? Would they be colorful or prominent? Then he goes on to say. Our universe redesigned by these mysterious iridescence -is would get carried away like a kaleidoscope gone mad, projecting us into a whirlwind of hypnotic sensations. That was music by Shos. Cash Fits Gable. The music in this podcast is all from new NAXOS. Featuring Guitarist Johan Smith who was the twenty one thousand nine hundred winner of the Guitar Foundation of America Competition.

Johann Sebastian Bach 3: What's a Concerto?

"I'm Naomi Lewin. Welcome to classics for kids. Concerto comes from two Italian words with sort of meanings first concerto means in agreement or together like the word concert. You go to a concert to hear people playing together but the Italian word contract. Tari has to do with struggling. And a concerto also has to do with one or more solo instruments doing friendly battle in concert with a larger group. Italian COMPOSER GIUSEPPE. Torelli gets most of the credit for developing the instrumental concerto. In the late sixteen hundreds an Italian who lived a bit later on Tonio Vivaldi wrote Zillions of Concerto will actually only five hundred or so. But it seems like Zillions Vivaldi's most famous set of concertos named for the four seasons the earliest concertos were written for violins. But you can have a concerto for any instrument. Here's one that you'll have nipple Makoma road for trumpet. One for cello by front-seat high one for Tuba by Refund Williams who in the late twentieth century Scottish composer James Macmillan wrote a concerto called vinnie Emmanuel for percussionist. Evelyn Glenn you can also have a concerto with more than one Solo Instrument Wolfgang Gone Medina's Mozart wrote this one for flute and Harp Dmitri Shostakovich wrote a wonderful concerto for piano and trumpet the end of the peace sense just like music for a silent movie. Let's because when he was young Shostakovich had a job playing piano for silent movies in box day composers also wrote something called the Concerto Grosso which does not mean. A concerto with slimy stuff. Losing out of it grow is Italian for great. Instead of just one or two soloists. A Concerto Grosso has a whole group of soloists. A smaller group pitted against a larger group. George Frederic Handel. Who lived at the same time as Bach wrote quite a few Concerto Grossi? That's the official plural of Concerto Grosso. a lot of Bach's Brandenburg concertos fall into the Concerto Grosso category in the Brandenburg Concerto. Number two the small group consists of Trumpet Flute Oboe Violin and the big group is made up of string instruments. You've heard music from Johann Sebastian faulks Brandenburg Concerto number. Two so by now you might be wondering how many Brandenburg concertos there are and how they got a name like Brandenburg. I'll tell you that next week. I'm Naomi Lewin. I write classics for Kids and produce it with Pimm Lander at wgn Cincinnati. Please join me next. Time for the story of the Brandon. Birds on classics for kids.

"Blanket Fort II" - Fantastic Home Studio Performances

"Hi, this is Peter Dugan the episode you're about to hear his dedicated to the memory of Kaelin Rats left a beloved staff member from the top. He was warm, accessible, incredibly caring and generous colleague and friend he approached his work with a very deep sense of purpose, and he had a laugh that lit up the office like fireworks. We lost him too soon and he is sorely missed Kaelin. This is for you. From NPR extend the Tom, celebrating, the power of music in the hands of America's. Here's our host pianist Peter Dugan thanks, Joanne, and thank you for joining me today for our Second Home Studio Show, otherwise known as blanket fort show number two as we all went into lockdown during the covid nineteen pandemic, the staff at from the top got together, and devised a special high tech recoding kit kind of studio in a box, and we sent it out to are selected young musicians. We then coached them on how to use it and we. We made this episode. You're listening to right now from that material and it's called a blanket fort show due to the fact that in order to get a good sound in their makeshift home studios, all of our young musicians had to pad their home, recording spaces with blankets and pillows I've got to say this show was pretty therapeutic to make during these isolating times, and I hope some of that good feeling translates to all of you right now. The first young person we're going to meet is sixteen year old violinist, universally from Irvine California. This girl is such a solid player. Every take she did with us was basically note perfect, and her rhythm was so precise. It was easy for me to follow along here. She is doing a long distance collaboration with me and we're performing the Caprice Bosc by Pablo Sarah Satay. A Sixteen year old violinist universally from Irvine California performed caprice. BOSC BY PUBLIC ZARA. Say this pianist. Peter Dugan I performed with her, but remotely through a back and forth exchange of recordings given that this show is being made during the coronavirus pandemic. She and I sat down afterwards to talk through video conference call. Units that was such an amazing performance. I just watched. You play that at your home and. Your precision is just mind boggling, and yet you also have this fiery passion that you bring to that caprice just beautiful. So given that we're in the middle of this pandemic and we can't travel very much for the moment. Let's take a little time to do a different sort of travel using the technology of storytelling in conversation, and let's go visit some of your favorite places. Shall we okay good? You told us that some of your best memories that you've made anywhere have been in Aspen Colorado and that's something that we actually sharing common, probably for the same reason, which was the Aspen Music Festival and school. Why was that such an important time for you it aspen the first time I went there. I still had a lot of fun but I went with my mom and my sister. And that was great but I would have liked that if I stayed by myself. So then this. Summer I went by myself and I stayed in the dorms there and I had so much fun. meeting people and share, making lots of memories and also like just Aspen. Self is so beautiful. So Do you feel that that summer and the independence that you fell in the connection? You felt with your friends. Has that changed you in any way actually I heard. My parents say that I've changed ever since I came back from aspirin. Really I don't know if it's in a good way or a valet, but I've heard that a lot. Did they elaborate in how they saw that change. I think it was more of me, not listening to them and doing whatever they WANNA do well. You know you're growing up and you're becoming that independent thinker and that's a beautiful thing. So, let's let's go to a different place now. Different Travel Destination Las Vegas. Oh I love being s okay. I have to say we don't necessarily see eye to eye on that, but I'm really curious what you love about Vegas. Whenever I go to Vegas, it's always me not having my violin. When I was little, I used to absolutely hate practicing so whenever we will go to Vegas. I would never have to remember. Ireland and it was. We would go for like three to four days to today's So when I was, there was just a complete Freetown could do whatever I want without having to practice or like having like that mind. Of Oh I need a practice now or something right? I love the idea that Aspen for you as a place to bring the violin and leave the family at home and Vegas Bring the family leave the violin at home, yeah! Okay so let's go to different destination now, Korea. I know you have family there and it's a really meaningful place for you. All of my family is in Korea, my relatives, my cousins and like my grandma. GRANDPA, all live in Korea. What are some things you love to do? There I think since I love Korean food so much I. Love going to like different restaurants and like the market. Sometimes they have so much good food so whenever I come back always gained like thirty pounds and I know that your grandmother. There has a sort of special music dream for you for Korea right? Yeah, she. My grandma lives in front of the so art center, and it's her dream, and also one of my dreams I think to play there and to have like my poster like posted on the. Place I on. That'll happen, and then you'll get to keep that poster and frame it in your music room and intimidate all of your your private students. When they come in for their lesson, they'll see that big poster. They're hanging up and they'll be like man. My teacher unions is a big deal. Thank you so much for being with US thank you? For the last fifteen years from the top and the Jack Kente Cook Foundation have awarded over three million dollars in scholarships to talented young musicians who have financial need. We still have more to give go from the top dot Org to learn more Peter. Thanks Joanne next up. One of the youngest classical guitarists from the top has ever featured. This is eleven year old Emilia Diaz Delgado from Santa Clara California performing a to eleven by a third Villalobos. Eleven year old Guitarist Amelia Diaz Delgado from Santa, Clara. California performed a eleven by Villalobos during this time of social distancing. She recorded that performance in her own home. Emilia you perform that so beautifully for eleven years old. You play with such poetry. You know that was a really haunting and beautiful performance. is that you're living room that I'm seeing you in. Does it feel different than it normally does now that you have all this equipment in there well. Yeah, but if I just looked the other way I'm like okay. I'm just playing for SOFA as usual. Playing for the SOFA, just as usual I love that so you're just eleven, but you have really discerning taste when it comes to music and performers for instance you have very interesting thoughts about this guy. This is the sweat though by Iraq Leo Fernandez. But who is this performer that I'm playing for now through video conference? John, Williams. His mouth they weren't guitarist. Yes John Williams is this legendary Australian guitarist not to be confused with the composer? Who's WHO's also legend has the same name. Why is he so special? And how is he different for you? Then maybe some of the other guitarists out there. I've heard him since I was little until like six or five. Maybe. It was also like Adele like practicing so much because I play. It hurt my fingers and they were like that hurt a do it but i. also want to play guitar because I like how it sounds. So I look at his video. He makes seems so effortless. Well if I practice a lot at some point, it will be easy to play I'm going to practice law so at some point, it will be right, so he inspired you to want to practice. And also I know you talk about the fact that some some musicians tend to emotes a lot with their with their face with their body. But you think John Williams when he plays. It's a little different than that right. Yeah, I've seen a lot of dishes are like just around you know. Make those complicated faces. And most people seem to think that that means that they're really feeling. The music and Don Williams never does any of that, and but I can still tell that he really enjoys. It accurately connects with it, you know. I, think that the discernment you show in terms of. How you admire John Williams musicianship that comes out in in the way you feel about another art form, which is opera, right and that that was really your introduction to classical music in a way. Yes, my grandparents, my maternal grandparents they live in Australia and they really love Oprah in classical music. So it was my grandmother, who introduced ME TO OPRAH? So, see watched broadest press corps with me and like there's so much I asked her to make a cost you. It was one of the ladies and deal. There are a lot of kids your age who liked to dress up as Disney princesses or you know Harry Potter characters. You're dressing up after after a board in opera. You also dressed up as a character. Magic Flute Ones Yeah. I grew up as Pelicano. But then you went, and you saw it live, and you weren't so pleased with this particular production that you saw right. Well Yeah, the San Francisco Oprah in I think sixteen. They made a production of the magic flute, so I will excel excited to be there and then turns out a hair first song. Thamento screaming for someone to help him, 'cause he going to be bitten by a giant snake or something. Like, that is not German. Why did they do to my magic food? So it turns out. They translated into English. So I mean yeah, it's with the rhythm, but it doesn't have the same lyrical right. Right. Well, you're quite the purest and. I I can't blame you for that I think it's wonderful that you're getting out there. And and absorbing not just great guitar music, but opera and you're thinking critically about it and you're. You're turning into such a well rounded and thoughtful independent musician, and you're only eleven years old, and that's really inspiring to all of us, so keep keep it up, thanks. We're now going to travel to Elizabethtown Kentucky and to the home of the eighteen year old saxophonist Jacob. Pirie Jacob is one of our Jack. Kente Cook Young Artists and here he is performing the second and third movements of Pablo de Provence Bipolar Maurice. The second and third movements of Tableau the Provence by Paulo Maurice performed by eighteen year old saxophonist Jacob along with yours truly collaborating through technology and the exchange of recordings on the piano. When I call Jacob to interview him, we talked a bit about the fact that he unlike a lot of from the top kids does not come from a musical family so i. asked him if that ever feels like disadvantage. You know no matter where you come from. If you work hard, you can always achieve. The same thing as anyone else that I definitely think you know it's not as easy 'cause when you're trained so young from a musical family you start learning piano, and you start getting pitch training, and all these different things, and you just get more time on the instrument. You choose to play as well versus when you start later, you don't have that pitch training and the piano experience and you're really trying to focus on your instrument. Get the practice. Get as many hours in his you can. And how have you managed to overcome those challenges? Definitely I think ear training is such a huge thing. You know something that's always something I've been trying to work on I started. Later, in high school junior year and I started by just sleeping with Jones in my ear. So I could try and memorizing pitches. It just feel natural and I. think that's such. A big challenge is getting that pitch in your ear when you weren't raised like that more raced and trained to listen to that kind of stuff. Man. It's so amazing because there are people who fall asleep listening to Bach or Mozart or something and you just listening to a single. Roaming. Disciplinary there. I imagine that this quarantine time has been a tough on you. especially you because you describe yourself as a people person, and and I know that for you, actually people is sort of. That's the reason why you love music. Well. I think that that's the reason I feel everyone goes into music because either they love music or they love. The people are both In my case, of course I love music and the people, but I love music because of the people brought together all the honor band. Band that people do the orchestra concerts when people get called in their around a whole new set of people and they're meeting New People in quarantine stuff. We've been more of a challenge, but sometimes now that we're getting to talk online I. Think Everyone's getting to know each other better. Because now pretty much all we can do is talk, and you know play for each other on instruments, but things are getting more personality. You're getting to know your friends more. I guess that's one good thing of quarantine. So you're pretty into the idea of interdisciplinary artistic performances, and the way that a performance like that can connect with an audience. You did a concert that was themed around a message related to gun violence so in twenty nineteen interlocking arts. Academy took a trip to your New York. City to form. Carnegie Hall and That trip was called resolve than it was focused on gun violence, and we played a very famous piece by Frank Kelly that talks about it, and it was written about the columbine shooting. We had a writer that went and read his whole piece allowed, and it was a very powerful concert. Any specific moment from that experience that really stuck with you and maybe made you think about the power that you have is an artist. I think the delicate phrases of that specific piece. I mean when you're listening to it. There's such a story behind it for instance they. Talked about how there's also sax on Seoul and then the same phrase poise again without the Alto Saxophone Solo and that was because unfortunately the alto. SAXOPHONISTS was one of the victims of the columbine shooting, and so it was represented for him being there, and then when the phrase came again, he wasn't there anymore. And when they sat down in a rehearsal after all the mess over, and everyone started to calm down a little more. than. The director saw that he wasn't there and things like that. When we know the story and we're trying to get that across, makes it so powerful, and that's the kind of moments that I think the audience and the US always remember. It's beautiful how music can bring. Healing and can make sense of even at terrible tragedy, and you know in a way. That's what we're doing here today. You know creating music and art even in the midst of this covid pandemic and Hopefully our music will bring some folks, some solace and comfort during these times, and I certainly appreciated having you with us today Jacob and love getting to know you.

We've got new music written by a young composer from Los, Angeles up next his name is William J he's eighteen, and he's one of our Jack Kente Cook Young Artists. He wrote this piece titled Alabaster Wool as an assignment while a fellow in the La Fills Nancy and Barry Sanders composer fellowship. Program the assignment was to write a piece based on a text or poem. William chose a poem by Emily Dickinson titled It sift from Leaden. Sieves we're going to hear three members of the L.. A. Based lyrics quartet performed now violinist Elissa Park. Violist, Luc Maurer and cellist. Timothy Liu, but before the music begins. Here's William Reading the Dickinson, poem. It cyst from lettuces by Emily Dickinson. It says from that insists it powers all the would it fills with. The wrinkles of the road and makes an even face of mountain and plain. Unbroken forehead from the east onto the east again. It reaches to the fence at wraps it rail by rail till it has lost its leases, it deal celestial veil to stump and stack and stem a summer's empty room. Acres of joints were harvests were reckless, but for them. It ruffles risks of posts as ankles of a queen. Than stills it's arsons like ghosts denying they have been. 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. So. The Duke is kind of this. Deep Voice Charismatic, and pretty powerful. He has it. In the way that he sings yeah I love that melody so much. And it sits right in the center of the piano. It's a nice juicy spot for the for for piano transcription. What's next well? Actually what comes before the Duke is Maddalena. So that goes like this? Very Cheeky, very flirty. We're going to hear next. We can go to Gilda, so the Duke and Maddalena are flirting, and then guild is watching through a people and getting very upset. Yeah and those those half steps are her just sort of crying out and feeling so heartbroken at what she's what she's witnessing. Really makes you go with her and finally recoletos last and. Right after he sees. Gilda becoming sad after she sees meddling and the duke flirting. He gets very overprotective as you can hear here. Cool well now that we've met all of our characters, let's hear them interact. Give us some of this drama. Okay here goes. Aw. We heard seventeen year old pianist. Ryan Gannon perform the paraphrase on Verdi's rigoletto by Franz Liszt. To take out of the program today we're journeying back into from the top twenty year archive to enjoy a flashback finale. Only a couple of times in from the tops, history of young musicians approached us as a horn trio, but back in two thousand five, the teenage twists photo horn trio from the Chicago area, amazed us with the performance of the Scherzer from the horn trio, and e flat, major by Yohannes Brahms.
