"That Was Nice!"

Saturday, March 03, 2012

Das war schön! (That was nice!) by the Norwegian composer Rolf Wallin invokes themes by Mozart, drawing on birdsong, freemasonry and parental innuendo in a five-movement concerto for percussion and orchestra. According to the composer’s program notes, the title refers to Mozart’s reaction to his caged bird being able to sing the main theme of the final movement of his 17th piano concerto, although with two small mistakes.

John Cage: City Circus, Program XII

Wednesday, July 27, 1994

For this, the twelfth edition of the John Cage: City Circus programs, listen to the final concert performance by John Cage, featuring Joan La Barbara, Leonard Stein, and William Winant.  It was a world premiere of his work, Four6, recorded by WNYC at Central Park Summerstage, just two weeks before his death in July of 1992. Four6 invites its players to individually choose and number 12 sounds that they are willing to make, and to begin and end them sometime during a set of fixed durations and was dedicated to Pauline Oliveros on the occasion of her 60th birthday.
