Difficult Student 5
Tuesday 4/5 20.02 Today in â€˜Difficult Student â€™ an early example of Beethoven’s immeasurably rich fantasy. He was such an in incredible improviser that he felt like a fish in water in the variation form. When he was only twenty he demonstrated his prowess in the â€˜Righiniâ€™ Variations WoO 65. His sunny Octet for wind came two years later, op. 103. We finish with 2 early songs.
Contest : The Night/Jazz about the repertoire of Bart Flos
Since last February, Concertzender has a weekly jazz night again. Jordy de Muijnk digs through his collection every Tuesday from 12 to 7 am. On Tuesday 4 May, the entire programme will be about Dutch pianist Bart Flos. Flos has been regularly releasing his own works under the name Next Step Projects since the year 2000. In The Night: Jazz, we will broadcast some of these early releases in full. After that, we will play the last part of this series, which was released in 2019. On behalf of Bart, we will give away some copies of this last part titled Roots & Reflections to some of you. This 3CD-set contains a suite for solo piano, trio, and a bonus CD with alternate takes on these works. To get your hands on one of the copies, we ask you to provide us with the correct answer to the question: how many volumes of Next Step Projects has Bart Flos released so far? Send your response to Concertzender prijsvraag before 20 May, and you may be a lucky winner!
Composer of the Month: Copland
Itâ€™s almost Motherâ€™s Day in the Netherlands but the title â€˜Father ofâ€¦â€™ is trendy. Last month Mikhail Glinka was the father of Russian Music. In May, weâ€™ll go to the United States; Aaron Copland will be our Composer of the Month. He lived through the first nine decades of the 20th century. What made him special â€“ and gave him his honorary title â€“ was that Copland took elements from pop music, hymns, and jazz and poured them into symphonic moulds. He also added his own style and interests for new developments to his music, like the twelve-tone technique, combined with jazz rhythms. In 1943, he created his most famous piece, music that is forever added to the canon of American music: Appalachian Spring. The piece was written as a ballet for Martha Graham. Later, Copland turned it into a piece for symphony orchestra. The accessible, heroic style was to become an example for American composers like Barber and Bernstein and is now in every American orchestraâ€™s repertoire. Listen Every workday, starting Thursday 6 May from 4 to 5 pm.
