RevRabbit: you'll soon find out how prescient you are with that comment!

It's a rare person who heard rehearsing bands marching past each other in the 1870s and said, "Yeah, I wanna make orchestral music outta that!"

Yes, bunyan, Ives is a treasure - he liked that so much he did it many other times!

Rock it, Sergei!

Prokofiev is cool.
One of the musical highlights of my life was seeing a pianist (I have no idea what her name is) playing Romeo and Juliet (solo piano) at Middlebury College in an amazing auditorium. (Saw Steve Reich there too.)

Hello! I for one am glad February is almost over.

most expressive music. The year prior to the birth of special grandparents.

Ranjit: will you supply us with a link so everyone knows what you've been up to all month?

In a whole different genre, Sondheim has come up with some great moments where two characters sing independently yet simultaneously about the things which concern them individually... they sing past one another, the lyrics and notes cross like ships in the night, but with moments where they intertwine.

Dave in Vermont - that would be amazing to hear. That piece, specifically the 'Death of Tybalt', is something I can listen to over and over and over and over

I was checking on a date, but found the _Skandalkonzert_ had already occurred in 1913. On the other hand, this is the centennial of Satie and Cocteau's premiere of _Parade_.

Sure! This is what i've been up to all month: www.moonmilk.com

Glad you are all out there and stirring the proverbial soup of music, memory and experience. Now, in true WFMU spirit, let the discussion of soup begin...

Progresso's Chickarina is the best canned soup.

This show is soup-er good!
Listening Out There:

What Ken sailed....

As another "Bridge" between composers whose work is played here today, Clementi helped spread the word of Beethoven to England...

A musician is ordering a meal which includes soup or salad..."I'll have the super salad." Har.
Listening Out There:

Gerf. Friggin' touch screens...
Listener Robert:

Doesn't Mighty Mouse eat super salad? With cheese dressing, of course.
Listener Robert:

That was shown in "Mouse of Tomorrow", after which your pledges to get the streaming service going was named.

Another interesting centennial: the American Federation of Musicians adopted the A440 tuning in 1917 (although in searching for this, I had no idea there was still such contention over tuning standards)...

Calming us down before the press-less briefing. Thank you, Bethany!

Goodnight! I'm excited for the marathon!

We should do "Three Places in New England" with BSO.
