shocking, but the only part I really understood so far.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 7:44pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i suspect that says something about you, james, but i don't suspect i should be suspecting things.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 7:48pm James Douglas:

No, it's true I am a simpleton when it comes to this experimental stuff, but I always give it a try.

oh, i just meant, like, you giggle at dirty words or something.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 7:49pm Kurt Gottschalk:

anyway, i'll play some music later in the show.

This is the oddest Dr. John tribute yet, but I get it.

hahaha! i just stepped out to the kitchen and heard a bit of devon's dr john tribute going on at the moment, sounded pretty good.

hi Kurt! enjoying the show
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 8:30pm northguineahills:

Nice Bartok!
  Tue. 6/11/19 8:34pm mzzmz:

I've listened many conductors' of this piece. Reiner was the best having the great drive. incredible that he commissioned it then got it completely.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 8:36pm Kurt Gottschalk:

mzz, i didn't realize it was his commission! interesting.
  Tue. 6/11/19 8:36pm mzzmz:

some modern recordings have painfully obvious pasting at some sections. this 1958 recording was live as it should. pretty amazing.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 8:39pm Kurt Gottschalk:

yeah, i've long loved it, although to be honest it's been ages since i've listened to it. something just struck me this week to play it.
  Tue. 6/11/19 8:41pm mzzmz:

whhops Reiner wasn't the once commsisioned it. my bad.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 8:42pm Kurt Gottschalk:

haha, no worries.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 8:54pm northguineahills:

Du Yun, new to me!
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 8:55pm Kurt Gottschalk:

yeah, she's pretty great.
  Tue. 6/11/19 9:02pm Dean:

This is a sorely needed breath of fresh air. I wish I'd tuned in earlier. The BoaC folks are channeling latter day King Crimson.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 9:03pm Kurt Gottschalk:

dean, jah, i was thinking this had a crimson hue too.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 9:05pm TDK60:

How do, was just over in the blues show...
  Tue. 6/11/19 9:05pm Dean:

And I don't even like latter day KC, but this is a refreshing piece. Kinda fun that it's a "capriccio" of mourning.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 9:07pm Kurt Gottschalk:

welcome over to the other side, tdk.

dean, written after the death of a friend and inspired by bach's "capriccio on the departure of a beloved brother" according to the notes - a piece i'm not familiar with by that name.
  Tue. 6/11/19 9:09pm Dean:

Nor I. Have to look that one up. Among my most favorite pieces is Buxtehude's Klaglied for his departed father. It is *not* a capriccio.
  Tue. 6/11/19 9:12pm Dean:

Here's the marvelous Tureck performing that Bach "Capriccio": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIxxnEkOjf0

How have I not heard this before?
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 9:13pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i listened to my whole box set of every single goddamned extant bach composition so presumably i've heard it, but i can't remember them all...
  Tue. 6/11/19 9:14pm Dean:

There are Bach compositions, "Bach" compositions, and Bach "compositions." That's a hard corpus to nail down.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 9:14pm TDK60:

there's a box set of /all/ of Bach? How many boxes?
  Tue. 6/11/19 9:15pm Dean:

Didn't Telefunken try something like that one hell of a long time ago?
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 9:16pm Kurt Gottschalk:

dean, indeed.

tdk, it's 155 discs in a box that can't support the weight.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 9:17pm TDK60:

..even Bach is finite (but doesn't seem so!)..
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 9:18pm Kurt Gottschalk:

the same label -- brilliant classics -- has a mozart set that's even bigger. but then you're stuck with mozart.
  Tue. 6/11/19 9:21pm Dean:

Ah, Brilliant. I just acquired a 26CD box of recorder music. "Hey, everybody! I'm having a party! Wait 'til you hear what I'm playing."

"...stuck with Mozart." One day, Kurt, you'll come to appreciate him. Really, Mozart gets a very bad rap these (and in earlier) days. Listen to him.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 9:22pm northguineahills:

Still doesn't hold a torch of John Zorn and co's 500 disc set from mostly live sets in China in 90s (mostly w/ Yamataka Eye). I only saw it advertised in the Wire once 20 years ago....
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 9:23pm northguineahills:

cthulhulu knows what they included for that much material....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 6/11/19 9:24pm chresti:

I don't think I'd mind a party with recorder music
  Tue. 6/11/19 9:25pm Dean:

Come on over, chresti! It's marvelous. Starts with solo stuff by, naturally, Van Eyck, moves into some German and Italian stuff, Vivaldi (admittedly, a hard sell, due to market saturation), but nothing "modern," sadly.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 9:27pm northguineahills:

I have a bunch of recorders, but over the years, they seem to break (I sometimes get percussive w/ my instruments live).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 6/11/19 9:32pm chresti:

The only recorder music I remember hearing was of a elementary school recorder band, I think, could of been a high school band
  Tue. 6/11/19 9:34pm Dean:

I have a few recorders and a good deal of recorder music. I once traveled to Europe to traipse around with Rene Clemencic's Consort. His "Et Ses Flutes" LP is an essential record for recorder admirers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 6/11/19 9:35pm chresti:

wow, sounds like fun!
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 9:37pm Kurt Gottschalk:

dean, i've listened, i have.

i love telemann's recorder music, tho.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 6/11/19 9:39pm chresti:

This is lovely, thanks Kurt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 9:39pm SeanG:

tune in, turn on, drop out, locked in
  Tue. 6/11/19 9:42pm Dean:

I adore Telemann, my favorite "boring" composer. A DJ in LA, Jim Svejda used to devote shows to Telemann's music precisely because he can't stand it. I loved those shows, because I in fact love Telemann, played well or badly, and because Svejda was unrelentingly critical, which was fun.

But Mozart deserves ongoing attention. Dark, dark stuff, beautiful, touching, scary, mind-bending...I don't often listen to his work, but just enough to recall how moving and gorgeous it remains.
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 9:45pm Kurt Gottschalk:

maybe one day one of us will change our minds about mozart, dean. or maybe not.
  Tue. 6/11/19 9:46pm Dean:

Heh, I've changed my mind about Mozart many times.
  Tue. 6/11/19 9:47pm spodiodi:

ah yes
Avatar Tue. 6/11/19 9:52pm TDK60:

..even the Purple one is finite. good night to DJ KG and all the miniatures..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/11/19 9:56pm SeanG:

crash ensemble sounded real good, thanks kurt!
  Tue. 6/11/19 9:58pm spodiodi:
