And for the record, this was the quote I read yesterday from Obama’s inaugaration:

  In reaffirming the greatness of our nation we understand that greatness is never a given. It must be earned. Our journey has never been one of short-cuts or settling for less. It has not been the path for the faint-hearted, for those that prefer leisure over work, or seek only the pleasures of riches and fame. Rather, it has been the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things — some celebrated, but more often men and women obscure in their labor — who have carried us up the long rugged path towards prosperity and freedom.
-President Barack Obama

See you next week….

Play List 1/20/2009 6-7:10 PM

About the end of the show: If you were listening, my apologies.  We were having some technical difficulties and had to pull the music off the air to try and get the sports game on.  When I left they were still having issues.  I’ll start off next week with the final movement of the Folk Song Suite in case you were waiting for it.

Again, I still haven’t found a format for play lists I like on here.  If you have any suggestions, let me know.

Intermission 5 – Feldman, M – Schroeder, Marianne 
Danket dem Herrn, BuxWV 181 – Buxtehude, D – Vogel, Harald 
Concerto for Orchestra – Carter, E – SWR Symphony / Michael Gielen 
De profundis clamavi ad te – des Prez, J – Hilliard Ensemble / Paul Hillier 
Semblance of Ritual II – Lee, J – Lee, J
Folk Song Suite – I: March, II: Intermezzo – Vaughn Williams, R – U Texas Wind Ensemble / Jerry Junkin 

Over the air I also read this quote by J F Kennedy on the occasion of President Obama’s inauguration:

“The life of the arts, far from being an interruption, a distraction, is very close to the center of a nation’s purpose and is a test of the quality of a nation’s civilization.”


Playlist 1/13/09 6-8pm

So I’m having some issues finding a good format for the playlist.  I also discovered that my mp3 tags got screwed up so I lost performer/album information for a bunch of recordings, which I’ll try to fix this weekend.

All listings are in the order Piece – Movement – Composer – Performer

Celestial Excursions – Act I: “Is it Light Yet?” – Ashley, R -Robert Ashley Ensemble
Sequenza IXa for clarinet (1980) – Berio, L – Valdepenas, J

I also said I’d post the lyrics for the Shostakovich song, so here are the lyrics from the 2nd and 3rd movements:

A Difficult to Fulfill Desire

I am a single man, and I need a lot of money.
I cannot find a wife so as not to suffer from lack of money,
therefore I expressly: send me one as soon as possible,
and if there is such one in Moscow
who would provide me with food and drink and not demand money for that,
advise me her address. P L E A S E.


Although the ruffian Fedulov did beat me,
I did not report this to our remarkable police force.
I decided to restrict myself to the thrashing already received.
