Tuesday is definitely in the running for my favorite day of the week.

You're the best - this is the very first Brahms piece I ever played! I hardly knew who he was, I was probably 16.

...culturally in over my head again @ last; it's so shallow most everywhere out there w/ gills gasping...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/27/16 8:17pm Bethany Ryker:

Personally I don't think (at least I hope) that nothing in this program is over anyone's head - just sounds afterall...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/27/16 8:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Oh - not in the inaccessible sense. In the contextual sense maybe. For me. Culturally in over my head is where I want to be - not patronized, but learning...

I like these sounds.
  Tue. 9/27/16 8:30pm Lisa:

Heya! Question...what's your talk over music? I was really digging it, plus my 10 year old son just stared cello today and he might like it . Thanks and much love!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/27/16 8:32pm Bethany Ryker:

The last piece was by Andrew Bird, "Skin" from the 2003 album Weather Systems - amazing album!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/27/16 8:33pm Bethany Ryker:

@lisa - fantastic that your son started cello _ such great repertoire out there for that instrument!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/27/16 8:33pm ranjit:

Moldavian themes are apparently quite energetic!
  Tue. 9/27/16 8:34pm Will:

Must say, really good to have this show back, it was an hour I got hooked on for a while then it disappeared.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/27/16 8:36pm Bethany Ryker:

Ranjit! Well in this case, yes, but I cropped out the first three or four minutes of down-tempo Moldavian grooves for the sake of time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/27/16 8:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

What a privilege to have you to select these pieces.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/27/16 8:40pm Bethany Ryker:

Anyone got the (obvious) thread to tonight's program?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/27/16 8:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Bohemian Rhapsody' ?
  Tue. 9/27/16 8:45pm byram:

sink me, you ARE great.
  Tue. 9/27/16 8:45pm listening out there:

No wonder I felt rhapsodic....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/27/16 8:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...no 'Bohemia' = Czech...
  Tue. 9/27/16 8:46pm listening out there:

...Ah couldn't figger it out...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/27/16 8:48pm Jack Scheff:

Hahaha, I played it quite a bit slower and more melancholically than that fellow did! I am not on his level at all, don't worry....
  Tue. 9/27/16 8:54pm Lisa:

The Andrew Bird piece is great. I think I'm looking for the piece you played right before the Ravel, right at the top of the show, after Brahms.:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/27/16 8:58pm Bethany Ryker:

Ok! That was from the Royal Tenebaums Soundtrack; original music by Mark Mothersbaugh, "Lindberg Palace Hotel Suite"
  Tue. 9/27/16 9:01pm IFisher:

Catching up with the archive, what a fabulous show. More than one piece I've never heard and must now go and find (hopefully on LP tho that's probably impossible with the Ruders).
Thanks Bethany!
