Synopsis

These podcasts are designed to help listeners of all experiences to gain some understanding of "classical music" from the perspective of a conductor, teacher, performer, and artist - they are a synthesis of what I have gained from my life experience with this music and it is my hope that they will enable you to enjoy this music and be able to utilize the tools I provide for further listening in your life.

    These next 2 podcasts discuss and uncover some of the notable elements in Mozart's final composition, written and completed in 1791. This immortal work became the climax of the made-for-Hollywood movie Amadeus. These podcasts come from a July 2006 series of programs I co-hosted with Tifanny Liong at 91.5, DZFE, The Master's Touch and are used by permission. The program was entitled "Amazing Amade" and was produced in honor of the 250th anniversary of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. These podcasts are for EDUCATIONAL use only.

    Music and Poetry - Approaching Beethoven's 9th. This is the fourth in a series of podcasts intended to simply walk with you through various composers and their music. Any tool, whether for music lovers, musicians or those new to "classical" music, is always helpful in this creative process of engaged listening. I offer these thoughts to anyone and everyone as a musician who has performed, studied, lived, taught and/or conducted the wide array and miscellany of musical works in the repertoire, be they familiar masterworks or gems that are less frequently performed. In this podcast, with the intention being able to eventually approach listening and talking about Beethoven's 9th (Choral) Symphony, I present an interesting opportunity for engaged and responsive listening in order to have a new perspective about the wedding of words and music - in this case, poetry and music. Most of this process is described in the podcast, so I leave much of the details for later discovery. These podcasts are for EDUCATIONAL u

    Poetry, Mahler, and Tennyson - Approaching Beethoven's 9th. This is the third in a series of podcasts I began with the idea to simply walk with you through various composers and their music. Any tool, whether for music lovers, musicians or those new to "classical" music, is always helpful to hear from anyone and everyone who has performed, studied, lived, taught and/or conducted the wide array and miscellany of musical works in the repertoire, be they familiar masterworks or gems that are less frequently performed. In this podcast, with the intention being able to eventually approach listening and talking about Beethoven's 9th (Choral) Symphony, I present just the simplest of ideas about music as language, poetry as an expression of the soul and dare to render a "musician's" interpretation of Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem Ulysses as a means to allow words, poetic words, to just "wash over us." I repeat some of the ideas I presented in my first podcast for emphasis and simply move on to setting up the poem of Te

    Beethoven Symphony No. 5 - Part II. This is the secpmd in a series of podcasts I created that simply walk you through various composers and their music.
