  8:32pm Irwin:

Totally diggin' the Reich piece, Beffany.
  8:33pm Richard from Venezuela:

Greetings Bethany and all the listeners.
  8:40pm Ike:

Yeah that Reich piece was great.
  8:43pm Richard from Venezuela:

Agreed Ike. By the way, I discovered Le Mystère Des Voix Bulgares through the VAST's samples in the song Touch: http://youtu.be/8S_R13jV11Q .
Thanks Mr. Jon Crosby for that.
  8:47pm Beige:

Darn, I just missed the Reich. And Ives, too. The only other weird classical dudes I can think of are Remi Gassman and Oskar Sala. I am so under-informed.
Avatar 8:48pm bethany:

Well...you never truly miss anything with the archives at full disposal!!
  8:52pm G:

From my distant days studying for classical guitar exams set by The Royal Schools of Music, I can add that Albeniz wrote a lot for guitar, and also ended up with a lot of his non-guitar pieces getting re-arranged as major pieces in the classical-cuitar repertoire... I'm pretty sure this piece exists in guitar arrangement -- you can tell by listening how easy the change would be from piano to guitar...
  8:55pm Charlene Tilton-Thomas:

Whatever became of Tomita?
  8:58pm G:

This Tomita? http://www.isaotomita.net/ If so, that's his site.
  9:34pm listener John:
