The Palace of Nostalgia
Roaming through musical history. The magic of Rodgers & Hart. They were an impossible duo. One of them was tall, slim, single-minded and disciplined; the other was a sad, insecure, alcoholic wreck. Yet, in the years they worked together, they wrote songs like “My Funny Valentine”, “The Lady is a Tramp”, “Oklahoma”, “Bewitched”, “Ten Cents a Dance”, “Glad to Be Unhappy”, “There’s a Small Hotel” and “Blue Moon”. Until it was no longer possible. Richard Rodgers continued with Oscar Hammerstein II as his partner, and Lorenz Hart slipped away to a sad death. An hour-long stroll through their repertoire with Frank Sinatra, Sophie Tucker, Lee Wiley, June Christy, Alfred Drake, Doris Day, John Coltrane, Etta Jones, The Four Freshmen, Shirley Horn, Liza Minelli and Ella Fitzgerald.
Bach Ad Infinitum
Govert Jan Bach’s weekday programme about the oeuvre of Johann Sebastian Bach. Episode 962. In this Bach Week, we’ll listen to cantatas, concerts of Bach’s sons, Bach by Glenn Gould, and many more. Today we’ll listen to cantata BWV 167, the concerto for flute, violin, and harpsichord BWV 1044, soprano arias, and Glenn Gould performs Preludes & Fughettas.
Frank Bridge before and after the war
An Early Evening Stroll on Tuesday 15 June 19:00 CET features two works by Frank Bridge (1879-1941) that perfectly illustrate the transformation in his style that was brought about by the First World War. The light, almost salon-like, works for piano trio from before the war are followed by the gruesome sounds of the war expressed in the form of a cello concerto.
Difficult Student VI
Tuesday 1/6 20.00. In ‘ Difficult student’ episode VI we’re in Bonn for Christmas 1790. The whole town is in a frenzy because the great Haydn is coming to visit. When he goes to church on Sunday morning he’s greatly surprised to hear one of his own Masses, played by an outstandingly good ensemble including the 20 year old Beethoven on viola. We’ll hear excerpts from that brilliant Mass and some of the works Beethoven wrote at that same time.
A stroll with Wolfl
Tuesday 1/6 1900. There is very little music from Wölfl recorded. In the Wölflhaus in Bonn they’re doing something about that. They’re using a computer programme which reads scores and translates them into music. Sometimes the results are unlistenable but what can you do ? Fortunately there are musicians who do record his music. In Paris Wölfl reached his peak and composed a lot, for example for the Opéra Comique . We’ll hear a lovely piano sonata, an overture to a very successful opera and a surprising symphony.
Let’s wander and wonder: the concertzender in June
This june, the concertzender wanders from Tennessee, to Paris, Vienna and Vught. We like you to join Guy Livingston on his travels through the magnificent American Landscape. May the spleen be with you, taking you to many unheared of places. Dutch composer Ton de Leeuw deserves your listening ear, too, as well as the unique Carnaval of threatened animals, which will be touring the Netherland this summer. Always wanted to know what master painter Duke Ellintgton did before he became, well… the Duke? We’ll be broadcasting some of Duke’s earliest recordings, with his band, the Washingtonians, this month. Have a good one, and don’t forget to fieverishly endorse us on any platform you are actively involved in!
Endangered animals on tour
This summer, four aspiring young musicians will tour around the Netherlands (yes, we can!), presenting a contemporary musical take on a series of endangered animals. With Camille Saint-Saëns lurking somewhere in the background, Sophie de Rijk and Hilke Bressers talk about their initiative.
