Hey! What’s up?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/4/16 8:06pm Dave in Vermont:

I like to listen when you are on live, not just archivally. Thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/4/16 8:06pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...no, hold the archivallies...
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 8:07pm Bethany Ryker:

Vermont! In real time - I agree - is the most fun. Connects all of us on this here page. However (!) archives are amazing to have...we can't survive with out them. And Europe....they tend to sleep at this hour!
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 8:08pm Bethany Ryker:

@Rev Rabbit - Pizzicatto - good one!

good evening Bethany! so happy to hear you here on WFMU again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/4/16 8:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

efd (reportedly): 'Archives are like mixtapes w/ talking.' I listen to podcasts when out & about tho' - which is about the same...

Was the upstate venue Maverick?

wool socks on for putzing and reading for the first time this season
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 8:17pm Bethany Ryker:

The Brooklyn Rider performance where they played Glenn Kotche's piece was Tannery Pond Concerts, a smaller enterprise than Maverick (which is amazing, by the way.) Checked the location - the New Yorker listed the GPS coordinates - first time I've ever seen that!:

Always super cool to hear Martinů... thanks Bethany! And hi everyone!
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 8:21pm Bethany Ryker:

Martinů - bit of an oddball; love so much of what he wrote; collisions of traditional forms and modern influences. Glad you like it, Jeff!
  Tue. 10/4/16 8:22pm P-90:

Martinu in 1929 sounded a lot like some of the things L. Bernstein would do decades later
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 8:22pm Bethany Ryker:

I've been away - fill me in, what does the radio icon mean? My guess was that it was it meant that the listener was listening via our terrestial FM frequencies, but we wouldn't be reaching the wool sock domain of Vermont ;)
  Tue. 10/4/16 8:24pm Joe stalvey:

Have been wanting to see something at either venue for a while. There are actually too many cool choices in upstate for about 70 days each summer. Really enjoying your show tonight.

come to think of it that was also pretty "oddball"...

current bed is great, pleasurable, invigorating

Paul Wittgenstein is the left-handed pianist in question
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 8:29pm Linda Lee:

Bethany! still have the beautiful postcard you sent up here to the mountains a while ago. still love hearing you. thank you for the music dear!
  Tue. 10/4/16 8:30pm rynac:

Left hand? are you referring to Leon Fleisher? He lost use of his right hand in the '60s and focused on left-hand repertoire. He regained use of his right hand in the 1990s.
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 8:35pm Bethany Ryker:

Left hand pianist who had many compositions dedicated to him was indeed Paul Wittgenstein, thanks @unpopularized for jogging my memory. He lost his right arm in WWI.

Good amount of info at en.wikipedia.org...

greetings Bethany and others

I grew up loving Dvorak, he's remained a fave throgh every stage of my music-listener life. I find I can indeed listen to his pieces again and again...

Hello Bethany. So wonderful. Thank you for introducing me to the music of Martinu.
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 8:40pm Bethany Ryker:

trying to keep up with comments!
Dave in Vermont - that is Mark Mothersbaugh from the Royal Tenenbaums Soundtrack, one of my faves!
Linda - so glad you liked the postcard!!

Bravissimo, big time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 10/4/16 8:48pm Jack Scheff:

This sounds way fresher than 1711 ^^

Greetings, 440-style!
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 8:52pm Bethany Ryker:

It does, doesn't it, Jack....was actually 1710, I made a typo on the playlist and have since fixed it. Fortunately that piece hasn't been taken over by a jewelry commercial like so many of Vivaldi's other works (so far as I know!)
Avatar Tue. 10/4/16 8:58pm Bethany Ryker:

Thanks for tuning in, y'all.

np! Now trying to think of what sort of commercial might actually use that piece...
