Antonio Vivaldi 3: Violin Concertos Through the Ages

"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

Johann Sebastian Bach 1: About Johann Sebastian Bach

"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.

Gioachino Rossini 3: Overtures

"Hello welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Win. Overture comes from the French word for opening vow to. That's what they called the piece of music that opened ballets and operas in Seventeenth Century France. After French overtures became popular all over Europe non-french composers started pending the name overture onto larger pieces of music those overtures or sweets as we now call them consisted of alternating fast and slow sections but they always started off with an overture in the French style. A slow introduction followed by lively second section today the kind of overture we know best is the dramatic overture a piece of music. That gets you ready for a stage. Work that follows sometimes. Those overtures consists of a bunch of hit tunes. That work like the overture to Jacques Oven. Box Operetta the Grand Duchess of Charleston. Dramatic go all the way back to the days when trumpets announced that some royal entertainment was about to start. That's the opening to one of the earliest opera ever written or fail by Claudio Monteverdi. Good overtures really. Get you in the mood for what's coming up for instance you can tell from the very first note that something serious is going to happen in. Mozart's Don Giovanni overtures set the stage for plays to Egg Mont by Gooda is obviously a tragedy as you can hear from the overture that Beethoven wrote for it but when you hear the overture Felix Mendelssohn composed for Shakespeare. Play a midsummer night's dream. You know it's a comedy. Actually Mendelssohn didn't originally right. His overture for production of the play. His midsummer night's dream is yet another kind of overture. A concert overture as the name says it's meant to be performed on a concert and doesn't have to have anything to do with anything. Theatrical lots of times when composers were asked to provide music for a special occasion. They'd write a concert overture. So that people who were sitting for a long time at some ceremony didn't have to sit through a long piece too when you're honest. Brahms composed music for the ceremony at which he got an honorary university degree. He made all the students happy by putting their favourite drinking songs into his academic festival. Overture lots of concert. Overtures were intended for patriotic purposes. Like the one Tchaikovsky wrote for the dedication of a church in Moscow. Tchaikovsky used that occasion to celebrate Russia's defeat of Napoleon in eighteen twelve tchaykovsky certainly knew how to put a rousing end to an overture and of course Soda Gioacchino Rossini. With one he wrote for his Opera William. Tell one of the things where Seaney put into his William Tell. Overture was a musical thunderstorm

How NBA commissioner David Stern helped shape the league

"This is a very sad day for the NBA For anybody associated with the League I think for anybody who is a fan of this league fan of the game. Ah Game of basketball period Here or anywhere around the world because David Stern was. I don't WanNa say singularly but certainly of very much responsible for everybody around the world Loving and appreciating this game being able to see this game the expansion of this game and David Stern of of course is No longer with US and Kind of knew this day was coming a few weeks ago when we got the news that he had suffered a brain hemorrhage throughout all of that I kind of stubbornly Felt like this is David Stern. He'll come out of it. I can't imagine I I can't imagine the League has already you've been without him. I can't imagine the world without David Stern and I'm still not sure how to process that. But I did know that when the moment came to have a podcast to discuss thus David stearns legacy and all the complexities of the man That the first person I would wanNA talk to the person sitting across from me in the studio right now. That's my good. The friend former colleague at the New York Times and of course hall of Famer Basketball Hall of Famer Harvey Aronson. Thank you for being good to be here good to be here solemn occasion I I agree and But it's good to be here. Thank you this is. This is tough so we were talking about this a little bit before we started recording and as I just said I can't imagine it's just the the idea that David Stern would Just that he's that he's not among still. There are certain people who you have in such high regard who are such titans titans who are such just just giants of their field or of the world at large that I feel like they're almost unkillable. David Stern like I would not bet on the David Stern versus death. I'm betting on David. Stern like literally going to punch death in the face and said get the fuck Outta here. I ain't ready yet and I I truly I believe these last few weeks ever since the news of the brain hemorrhage that he was going to rally because he is he's as we know he's a fighter and he's stubborn as hell and I figured that would be That would apply across the board and Yeah I still. I still can't quite believe he's gone. You have known him much longer than I have starting in late Seventies. He made his presence felt he was. He was lead counsel will when he came over from his law firm. Proske our rose in these four. Names and FRESCA Rosen Mendelssohn. I always forget the third one pro scour they always I was just called but he made his presence felt around the league and particularly with the media long before he became deputy commissioner in the early eighties and then commissioner in Nineteen Ninety Four. And you know I always found it interesting especially as we went on into the ninety s and into the new century that people looked at the NBA. And they would say you know. David Stern became commissioner. Larry Bird and Magic Magic Johnson entered the League one thousand nine hundred nineteen eighty season and it was a rocket to the moon right from there. And you know it's just a revisionist sense of history because David did not become commissioner until Nineteen eighty-four and bird and magic. Were already in the League. For four years the league was still a very troubled entity. You know almost you know almost a half decade into the bird magic era. There are a lot of issues. There were teams that were said to be on the verge of close of folding there was no salary cap op. There was no drug testing drug plan. A lot didn't happen until David actually became commissioner but those of us who cover the league regularly knew to him and I knew him I knew him from being around but I got my first as we all know our first David Stern phone call. Aw when I was working at the New York Post and I want to say it was probably around. Nineteen eighty one. Maybe and. He's he's Deputy Commissioner Deputy Commissioner or just about to become deputy commissioner and I I had decided as the Knicks beat writer that I was going to befriend Larry Fleisher. Who is the director of the Players Association and fancied myself as pro-labor Grew up in a labor union household and I was going to side with the players before for even knew anything right so I actually let turned over. My story wasn't a column. I think it was a story. Larry Fleisher who proposed doing away with the entire entire NBA draft. Why do we need to draft right? And I'm like you know that makes that makes a lot of sense to me so I write this evolutionary even now much less and you know for several years I kind of win alone and you can kind of make an argument for it. You know. Sort of a free enterprise system right but I wrote the story and David Stern and get a call the next day from Secretary and I pick up the phone and like I said I probably met him three or four or five times and and I answered the phone and he said he gets on and he goes this harvey and I said yes and he goes. I'm going to educate to. I'm going to educate you you for a few minutes. You fucking idiot and we went from there you know. He was merciless but yet always I pulled it back just enough to make you know that you know there's a possibility of lack of actual relationship here. But that was my first recollection of my have of my first. I Real David Stern W up and renew phone call and we all got those. I considered it. I don't know what point I realized is. This was the badge of honor. But this is a badge of honor. And it's funny harvey when we just seeing all the twitter tributes reading everybody's calms the last twenty four hours and we all have as as journalists. Cover this league so much. The same story these very very similar stories of our relationships with David these kind of love hate push rush poll frienemie type relationships where he was both In some ways mentor and Educator especially for you and Ah David our little closer in age so for some of us who came up and he was already well established as the commissioner for a long time before I come into the League or others is that WHO's pieces of red. He's very much kind of almost father figure and besides that he's the keeper of of all the NBA's history and secrets secrets and everything. So he did he would take on this role of like I want to educate. It's funny that he's saying this to you who was basically his almost pure at that point of. He's still doing his job job. He's not even commissioner yet and and you're covering the league but like that's just who he was I guess from the beginning and it certainly is the experience that I had with him and we all yes at some point. Got f-bomb to desk us. I'm glad we can curse on my podcast because David Stern wouldn't have wanted it any other way than for us to say fuck a few times because it was certainly one of his favorite words I I do think that it was probably very different to work for David. I mean reading a lot of the posts today on facebook and twitter twitter from people like Terry Lions and who's part of the communication staff for many years You know saying things like you know you you you didn't arrive at the NBA. Until David Curse you out in for doing something or doing something wrong and our cases I think it was a different different dynamic because to certain extent we did hold some leverage in power. David was marketing his league and it was important Kim particularly in the early years. You know to get the kind of press that he wanted for the sport and the kind of coverage for the athletes. He was trying to sell. So I think to a certain to a certain extent that you know that pullback from the total annihilation that David was capable of was inevitable because he wanted to Always maintain that relationship I remember in one of the Ninety S lockouts. He had a press conference was an update In the middle of lockout and the Times who's had a sign just kind of out of the Blue Murray Chasse who was a chroma generally baseball writer writer and columnist to cover the NBA lockout and Murray was long known to be essentially an ally of the Baseball Writers Association Association. I mean practically slept with ball them going too far but with G.. Those guys I mean it was. He was clearly pro row union in just about everything he wrote and Murray had written a series of articles for the Times that were clearly anti-star anti league and supporting the players. And I remember I was talking to David but after the press conference and Joel Lipman one of the attorneys attorneys with standing nearby and David started to say something to me. That sounded like you know one of these. I'm going to tell you in confidence. You know what's really going on. And y'all grabbed him by the arm and said David David Wait. Wait wait and David turned around and looked at Joel and said this is not Murray. Hey this is harvey and implicit in that or not. So implicit was the notion that I'm on their side. Not that I'm always going to write it the way they want want. I'm one of the regulars. There was a real difference if you one of the regular news who covered that sport and he kind of understood because I I will say this. We all WANNA be impartial. You'll want to write what we think. But it's particularly in the early eighties. Through the the end of that decade as League began to push more and more higher and higher and out of that ditch that it was in you know in the late seventies that all of us who covered the league felt a real pride that we were part of something that was growing. That was something special and David Sense that in all of us I could name you know whether there is Bob Ryan Alien Verizon you know Jan Hubbard Jack McCallum. I think it was. I think he looked at us. Not Addis he's guys or his writer so we're going to. You know who are going to adhere to is disciplined. Alright well what he wanted to but ultimately that we were pro. NBA Hey we believed in the product and we loved it we love the sport and believe in it and that was the difference. I think some of that changed in the later years when he felt this. There was some people coming along. Who are sort of interlopers? Who didn't necessarily have the League's best interest at heart? You know it's interesting too because you're describing you know a- and a general atmosphere in terms of the media and the sports world in general that that I think maybe a lot of my listeners or a lot of fans today probably don't have a true understanding of just because it was a very different world back then basketball was a distant third at best and you know baseball was still the national pastime and football was already a Bima and the NBA. You know forget whether the teams that were possibly going to fold in in the early eighties. When David I took over as commissioner it just the sport as a whole just didn't have the foothold in the capture of the of the collective the public's imagination that it has today this sport is a global a phenomenon of its own and that wasn't the case back then so it was probably really important and earlier on for David to to be able to identify that right? That's a that those of you covered league on a regular basis. Did so because you believed in basketball and believe in the NBA is a sport that that it wasn't just this little niche sport in America that would forever be overshadowed by football and baseball that it was that it had its own distinct identity in promise and and could be on on equal footing with those sports. I mean today. We don't have that discussion that the NBA is here and it is huge and it is to be reckoned with maybe the predictions of overtaking the NFL were a little premature but the NBA. It's I think people today might take for granted not realizing ising how far it had to come and so I think probably did shape a lot of how David saw the coverage and why he was so protective of it and when you talk about or any of US talk about David Redeeming us out and dropping dropping f bombs and whatever else. It's not because it was ever personal and it's not because we had fucked up that badly. Although occasionally we might have. David was just very protective protective of an advocate fierce advocate for his league. And so that's why I didn't mind badge of honor thing is like I kind of understood where he was coming from after awhile now cinder understood that if I pushed back and held my ground and especially if I did have a solid ground extent.

I'm sure all the the agents are kind of hanging around trying to throw their hat in the ring but yeah I mean I it was I mean it's it's just it's the nature of the game here. We've you see this happen a lot and perhaps the real the real important racist coming up a month from now but if you've you know food for thought as to whether or not the horse that we also at least I thought was the number one older horse in the country. is really that much better than everybody else and amount of quarter. I think it's anybody's game now fold in as well the the result at the Jockey Club Gold Cup and what did you think of the takedown and who do you favor of the two of them coming out west well. I'll tell you what that I I was kind of hoping that it didn't come down and even I thought the three year old is going to win the race going in and what am I ran well. I thought he I thought he had every chance to get by but it was a tough. It's tough to lose a race lightweight like way when push came to shove and unfortunately for her also did come to push he he hung in there I think both both of those are deserving the universal. I'd come already come out west a winner racer over the summer so we subtract and so they'll meet again it's I I. I was talking about this. The other day was Zoe on our podcast and we we were pretty much not baffled. I don't think that's the way but kind of open to in trying to figure out who might win the plastic doors so many possibilities now so many horses that look like they're capable title stepping up some of them that look good or maybe vulnerable so I duNNo. We'll be watching the next couple of three weeks to see who trains the best. Maybe maybe we can come up with a conclusion but right now now. It's really a mess we'll wait till they get the decisions. The final decisions horses like a late and late would add another wrinkle visit I think they're thinking mile and a quarter and the boys aren't that top much tougher for maybe the midnight DC would be if he ran against her again and and a mile an eighth in the in the the staff so that would that would certainly make an interesting well a couple of other thoughts jeff about last weekend the reasons we discussed filled D'Amato just a of magical a couple of days pee wee reese on Friday mirth and Cleopatra Strike in the Rodeo drive and the John Henry able to Geo Story. I keep coming back to it because what can you say and then Sunday Paradise Woods and I ask you the same question that I brought up up with Jay and I asked Sadler too Sadler Sheriff's the other day if she runs that race of the distaff she's she's a major major player and I know she's a notorious in and outer but I thought that was a terrific effort it was it was accomplished under under pristine conditions sitting right outside a speed horse with nobody all rounder nobody in front of her nobody beside her with kind of like a workout for but she did feel the deal as she finished strongly and she earned a beyer speed figure that was something like eight or nine points better than they were not that that means anything but bottom line is she ran really well now whether or not she can do that again I don't know if he pointed out not exactly your model of consistency and I thought maybe your best days were behind her but boy did she work well and I I I yeah I mean you have to go. You have to think that going into the dispatch. This definitely has a legitimate chance I mean if she decides to show up with a game the thing that we're going to start talking about Jeff when when when I'm at clockers corner and and we're watching horses work and when we analyzed the the XP TV workouts leading up to the race between you and Millie Ah Zoe is going to be fitness levels and the one thing you're not going to have to worry about John. The sheriff's Baffert and Sadler is is fitness of these horses on that racetrack and that's going to be a huge factor and I'm I'M GONNA keep referring to the east coast horses that went to del Elmar for the Pacific Classic and God drowned on that deep surface and Steve Asmussen asked me to his credit with with tenfold he learned his lesson and went out early with Mottola because he is not gonna get caught on that element he wants his horses. This is ready to travel over that surface and it's going to be something we we really focus on and then I'm sure in the recap you know after breeders Peter Scott. It's GONNA come up well down. Mars is eat but it's it's not it's not any deeper than in Santa Anita where this is not the old Santa Anita track backwards you know three quarters in eight and change all all day long I mean you have to be did fit to run on. This track is deep. You just tiring you you have to train over it. I think I think it really helps and yeah I think it's going to be very important to to to watch the works and I I do think it's going to be a great advantage for horses to get in early and get a beast of one or maybe even to work over the drag your possible because it's it's not it's it's tough. It's it's it. It's deeper than New York and Belmont Park is I'm convinced of that and I know Belmont to be called the fanny and all that but this track is is big heavy. I mean it's the faith it's safe and that's why they made it so deep but you've gotta get through it and you gotTa. That'd be fit well. Let's get set to look at the weekend and before we talk about Saturday any any day maker ideas for today well. You know it's yeah I mean I I did do a couple of San Anita and I can give the a little bit of an insight today's tough but I like the Philly name swirling in the fourth race she's not the favorite averaged five to two zero six two five in there she's a late running turf sprinter that that I that likes attending through force and they're starting to run five and a half now in the first we've got a couple now they extended the shootout there so she'd found five furlongs on this course a little stripe and she was hitting the boy and running well but just running out of room now she goes five and a half and I noticed in the few couple of five and a half long since we've had so far that the closers have a better chance and she's she's good enough to win. and I think that extra half for a long we'll give her the edge that she needs so I'm looking at number two swirling in the fourth race to kind of heightened me over for that's my play play today. It's an okay car not a great guard but I think we can we can get some value there because she's not going to be the favorite it's excellent all right swirling today and Let's let's go to the weekend and obviously the steak the steak side of things Let's talk about talk about the city of hope I because it it it really is intriguing and I brought up with Jay earlier. Jeff the mixing and matching of older horses. I mean really veteran in six seven eight year olds like synchrony and Ohio and Bolo and catapult facing off against some horses that may be emerging What's your angle in the studio? It's really hard. I handicap this this race and I came up with about four or five that on their best day could win. synchrony is intriguing to me I think he's intrinsically the best of the group but he doesn't have a lot of tactical speed and going a mile on this course even though he's running the tool aww theoretically he could maybe draft into the mid part of the mid packing and save the nangle out and get through he tends to give himself a lot to do and I remember when he came out here for the CBS del Mar last November. The same thing happened. Do that was sixteen. He fell back. He he had some traffic trouble he got. That's where we finished. Fuller Ronnie finished thirty one but but he didn't get there so I I like him at five to one at synchrony shipper I I hope he gets the trip. If he doesn't then you can make a case for a number of these. I mean looking for fifteen to one shot number four on your program. Aziz restrained vengeance. He's GonNa get loose in the lead and if he does that he can be dangerous. TAT upholds training really well but he's form doesn't look all that well you gotta go back to the Kilroy Mile Back in March the finding good but at least it was over this turf fourth and he could pop up Sadler. He's five to one the raises a bunch of the race basically is is a bunch. That's a five to one shots hoping for good luck but I think maybe if he gets through synchrony can win I wanted to I wanted to like River Boyne off the lay off and then John White made him four to one and that that cooled my ardor well you know I looked at him him and he was a very good three year old and he hasn't won at four and haven't made a lot of progress at least according to his numbers and he goes from practice and I'm looking elsewhere. Let's put it that way you know a to go back to an angle from last week as that in fact Jay also came up with and Dash the other filled D'Amato player and here's able to do who the things that just seem to be running for Jeff at at least from what we saw last week while they they ran for a golden gate when he was leading rider up there and I talked to them for a number of years actually we had horses up there and he he wrote for us always felt that he was good enough but he was kingpin up there era and then he decided to make the leap and I thought it might be tough for them but it really hasn't he's really falling favor with the with the horsemen down here and he's a strong writer but he's a good rider as far as and dishes concern. He's coming off a nice win. Del Mar.. He's obviously never beaten this this group although he did run second Mendelssohn and his racing debut of that matters which it doesn't that was way back in two thousand seventeen at the Curragh but but he's he's he's developing. He's he's coming around and the way the model is going. I mean I wouldn't put anything past him and especially in a race like this in which really there is no standout and anything can happen so hey why not wanting to watch a couple of other thoughts. what do you make of this chance Salat Omaha beach matchup the very very different set of three year olds against elders in the in the sprint championship wells twelve sheds lots four to five in the morning line because he's not only the fastest horse in the race in terms of numbers but he's also look controlling speed and he doesn't even have to go that fast my my concern was and it's kind of happened in the Jerkins a little bit then I know that the inside part of the wasn't particularly hit that day but they kinda slowdown down twenty three flat forty five and and he's fast horse and I think you gotta use his weapon and I think going three quarters. They don't have to worry too much about you. Know saving reading anything so I I would suspect he'll bust out there and go. He had a nice breeze over the track. I think Navarro did the right thing by bringing them out early and breezy had a half and forty. He's seven and one third fastest at sixty five last week and he lied did it. The right way looked like he was relaxed like he got over the track very very well so he's going to be it really hard for Omaha Beach the rundown although I my theory about Omaha beach is that he's always wanted to be a sprinter and because he was so good and all the money's going long long that Richard Mandella kept running them wrong and why wouldn't he won the rebel in the Arkansas Derby any may have even able to win the Kentucky Derby had come down with the trap Levada brought his only sprint race of his career only race of seven that he actually sprinted

"But he loved about Mendelssohn Mandelson's music is somehow always positive the first thing I many musicians will will think of when the human Dawson is sort of optimism this happiness smile. And I think that sometimes leads to being associated also with triviality with being superficial, but I've found that beyond this optimism and this positively he has so much to tell. And of course, he was an incredibly talented composer in the concerto performing, the first piano, concerto he wrote when he was twenty one years old. And like many composers who wrote pieces that young. He was had this innate talent to, to write music that had context had story had movements that had a certain concept to it. And he had his own musical Lang. Wjr. And that I think always means that a composer stays with us today and, and the composers that we play in concert halls in the twenty first century being composers, of course from eighteen nineteen th twentieth centuries are the ones who have their own musical, language who didn't just take and rewrite would had already been said. They created their own form of expression. Can you set up this next piece you're gonna play is connected to what you're talking about? Or is this is this a sprite happy peace or is this one of the more dark pieces? We were gonna hear another piece. Okay. Yes. Everything's fine. This is because actually Mendelssohn himself in his life struggled also with the branding of being a composer, who couldn't write serious music. This isn't in this isn't in today, not necessarily looking back at his work, even then frivolous. Okay. And these sets of face is actually titled since it is so serious. He, he felt the need to say okay, you know, I'm writing these various variations. Please don't disregard them for being trivial in any way. And what I'm playing just the coda the very last sort of outburst. But at the very end set of having this very impressive, and he puts it back down to the to the pot that he started at dynamically and emotionally.

"We had a lot of talk with Jane over the summer, but Mendelssohn the talk was that he was going to run again next year Pegasus and the World Cup. That's all been scrapped round the cigar mile finished, fourth retired. A new Brian is pretty disappointed about the fact that they've done that. It was big experiment for them. James overall. Do you think it's something that they've just learned from or was it an opportunity missed with Mendelssohn? When I it's it's always admirable when you try something different. It would have been very easy to do. Keep them at home and do the normal things with him. I think the guys want to try to win the Kentucky Derby, they've made no qualms about admitting us, and they try to before and felt that meant that they learned from us, and they sent that Mendelssohn was going to get a different prep. He was going to run on dirt two loss. And he was going to get experience on this. He ran he ran with credits. In the Breeders Cup this year. But he didn't really maybe produced what he did as a two year old, and especially what he didn't do by this year. So I was disappointed. This didn't finish closer in the scar. Moily taught a mile is really his trip top perhaps he didn't stay ten furlongs in the big race during the year. What's the race? Eluding me. Trevor's movie. The Travers though, the sorry to Catholic. Yeah. So I talked he obviously said quick fractions, and he just didn't get home. So I taught the the minute suit him look at the lure is that he is a gorgeous horse and that he is a group. One winner brothers to intimacy of who's one of the best of the moment in America and beholder who was one of the best mayors of her generation was the best generation. So locate she he's gonna be he's gonna be very popular. And I think when they go back with another horse to the Kentucky Derby, they're going to be even wiser again. So hopefully, someday craft nutshell was it will be if via credit to all these other horses that have been attempting if don't years change, you you would have seen interview. So you can probably confirm. I was in the TD, and there is an interview with Aidan O'Brien their last last week, and it was and he made a very interesting comment. He's obviously talking both. It was with American journalists and very short. He was talking about the Kentucky Derby, and what have you, and he said words to the effect of I think, it might be a Galileo that those of us if any if anything does the first and they're working on identifying a sewn of Galileo as their their derby prospect for next which was really interesting because obviously likes of Mendelssohn and odors, you know, had dirt pedigrees, technically, the fire is obviously Galileo doesn't have that. But it's just interesting that he feels that mentally Galileo's Gallileo might be the one to do it..

"Into the burn zones before the fire is out. We say red carded in the business and lately he's been going out into the burn zones. Every day the Wolsey fire the largest ever recorded in the Santa Monica mountains, which are home to many lesser known species like the endangered San Fernando Valley. Spine flower, it grows or grew near the ignition point of the fire. There is hope that some of the populations did survive. And that even if they were burned over that, they can recover and in all the devastation animals large and small did manage to survive some burrowed underground or flew away and others may have been spared because the landscape did not burn evenly. We've seen a lot of heavily Bern areas. But also some low to moderately burned areas. So that's. What we want to see in a wildfire. We do wanna see that mixture where wildlife have places to retreat to as the fire moves through. And even the weakest moonscape can recover says Mendelssohn there will be help required from human hands. Biologists will remove invasive plant species and protect breeding pools for the threatened red legged frog firefighters will stick around to remove the bulldozer lines. They cut to contain the flames. But most of all says Mendelssohn what the Santa Monica mountains. Need is not in human control. We want rain after this fire to bring the vegetation and wildlife back but not too much. Rain says Mendelssohn because in California that often means that the disaster of wildfire is followed by the catastrophe of mudslides. Jaffe NPR news.

"Presenting the most value. If I was playing multi-race bets, I'll just try to get away with Todd in here earlier in the show JK gave his thoughts on the jockey club Gold Cup, Nick how to use it. Well, I mean, I hate to hate to make it sound simple, but I think diversity is gonna win. I think he's just these significantly better than these horses and the mile and a quarter at Belmont is clearly his trip. The biggest question, the racist, if Mendelssohn, or end or thunder thunder, snow or quick enough to give him any company on the front of diversify is a very, very fast horse. And one of the things that we see we saw in both suburban and the Whitney is that he was successful because he's he's basically able to just run quality horses right off their feet. And I can say this much that Mendelssohn and or thunder snow. They may pressure diversify, but they will ultimately pay the price for that because he will. He will subjugate them as he has basically every other speed horse. His last two starts. So, you know, I don't know necessarily if that's the best approach, I think by either of those jockeys, I think that in terms of the other players, something that's true of both discreet lover and gronkowski other than that, they both need to. Improve in order to win they. They were both ridden improperly last time. Discreet lover probably more so than gronkowski over was much too close to the pace. And if you look back at some of his past races, this has happened before where I think many Franko felt like they were going to be going a little slower than they did, but either way this is a horse needs to lay back and make one run. And I feel like that late run was just totally totally notified by being a little too close to the pace and making a bit of a middle move. And the same thing is true of gronkowski who in the Belmont showed that he's kinda worse that just wants to completely drop out and make one run. And now he'll be able to do that. I think the my quarter at Belmont may suit him quite a bit better. Given that he seemed like kind of that we benefit from wider sweeping turns and and clearly would benefit if there's pace in front of him with under snow, indoor Mendelssohn pushing diversify. So I mean, I'm gonna. I'm going to bet a diversified gronkowski, tie discreet lover trifecta and trying to really just get the two of them behind him. And then all. Also have discreet lover in the second spot a little bit behind diversified trying to inject a little value. What is your view on gronkowski? I've heard that point that Belmont might just really suit him and and the way he moves, is he a horse who will be anywhere as a backup or anything for you, or you really just all about diversify with a tiny little bit of Mendelssohn. I think probably the second one, diversify with a tiny little bit of Mendelssohn. I don't think I don't. I don't think the gronkowski can't win. I just don't see the scenario in which he how he does like like like with Nick, like diversify reminds me a lot of this might be he might be better than this worse, but this horse has a better body of work. So I don't mind pairing them. He reminds me of game on dude, like the faster they go, the better off. He is if he goes forty eight, he's going to get beat. But if he goes forty, six got a better chance of winning. We've talked about orders like that in the past, and I think the diversifies one of those, the only tricky thing that I just worry sometimes that the connections and the writers in situations leading into the next big race, they can sometimes get a little cute rate the horse. Let Mendelssohn go. Let thunder snow, go and try to sit off of them. And if that happens, diversifies four to five suddenly becomes three to one chances of winning. And I just don't. That doesn't make me feel comfortable. What I, what I really would love to see happen is I would love for diversified a wing it in for Mendelssohn. Chase him and for Mendelssohn to stick around. And then I can bet Mendelssohn in the classic because he actually ran well, but it's just you have no idea what these guys are going to do. What Ryan Moore is going to do..

"Welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin Felix Mendelssohn was lucky enough to be born into a wealthy family with loving parents who encouraged him to be a musician. And his first name certainly fit his situation. Felix is Latin for happy. Mendelssohn was born in eighteen oh, nine in Hamburg, Germany, but he grew up in Berlin. His grandfather was the famous Jewish philosopher Moses Mendelssohn, but this was a time when it was very difficult to be Jewish in Germany. There were all kinds of laws and taxes that applied just to Jews Felix Mendelssohn. Father was a banker who didn't want to deal with anti-semitism people discriminating against him because he was Jewish. So he converted to Christianity and had everyone in the family baptized. Then he tacked Christian name onto their last name, making it Mendelssohn Bartoli when he got older Felix told his father, he would stick with just plain Mendelssohn. The Mendelssohn family held regular Sunday afternoon concerts at their house. So Felix Mendelssohn grew up with music all around him as a kid. He was already terrific pianist, and he started composing when he was ten. By the time he was a teenager Mendelssohn had already written some of his greatest music. When he wasn't making music Mendelssohn like poll typical kid tricks, one night, he climbed onto the roof and woke everyone up by yowling like a cat, but he was hardly a typical kid. In addition to German, he spoke French English and talion. He was also a wonderful visual artist, so good that he might have made a living as a painter. Mendelssohn also had a knack for making friends with older people. Some of them much older when he was twelve. He met the great poet and playwright Johann both gun phone good who was seventy two. At the time they became good friends and Mendelssohn wrote music based on good has worked. Mendelssohn loved to travel back then instead of going to college, a lot of young Europeans did what they called the grand tour around the continent traveling for months or years to see famous sites, visit famous museums and soak up foreign culture. Mendelssohn grand tour inspired some of his best music in spite of the fact that he got horribly seasick on the way to England and Scotland when he saw fingle cave in the Hebrides islands. Mendelssohn came up with an overture. When Mendelssohn saw the ruined castle of Mary Queen of Scots, he composed a symphony. And his trip to Italy, inspired another symphony. In addition to having a career as a pianist, Mendelssohn was famous as a conductor as a teenager. He fell in love with Johann Sebastian, Bach music when he was just twenty. He put together and conducted the first concert of the Saint Matthew passion. Since box lifetime, of course, Mendelssohn wrote choral music of his own. Mendelssohn had a younger sister and brother, but he was closest to his older sister fanny. She played the piano and composed to Felix and fanny, not only made music together. They also put on plays like Shakespeare's amid summer night's dream. That's the overture Felix Mendelssohn wrote for a midsummer night's dream more about a midsummer night's dream and Mendelssohn music for it. Next week I'm Naomi Lewin. I write classics for kids and produce it with Tim Lander at w. g. u. c. Cincinnati. Please join me again for more classics for kids.
