Sonnet by Elizabeth Bishop

I am in need of music that would flow
Over my fretful, feeling finger-tips,
Over my bitter-tainted trembling lips,
With melody, deep, clear, and liquid slow.
Oh, for the healing, swaying, old and low,
Of some song sung to rest the tired dead,
A song like to fall like water on my head,
And over quivering limbs, dream flushed to glow!

There is magic made by melody:
A spell of rest, and quiet breath, and cool
Heart, that sinks through fading colors deep
To the subaqueous stillness of the sea,
And floats forever in a moon green pool,
Held in the arms of rhythm and of sleep.

Afternoon Classics, Thursday, April 16, 2009

The heart of today's program comes out of a discussion I had with Patrick Murphy this morning. We both have an affinity for Brahms and therefore as the topic of our discussion gravitated to Brahms so did the core of this program. However to begin with we will start with our old friend the Red Priest - Antonio Vivaldi.
Vivaldi: From Il cimento dell'armonia e dell'inventione - Concerto in B flat RV 362, "La caccia" performed by Europa Galante with Fabio Biondi leading and on the violin.
Schubert: Rondo Brillant in B minor, Op 70, D 895 with Denes Szigmondy and Anneliese Nissen, this time the whole thing.
Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 28 in A major, Op. 101, John O'Conor at the piano along with the Scherzo from his Sonata No. 29 "Hammerklavier."
Brahms: the jewel of the showcase: Symphony No. 2 in D, Op. 73, an historic recording with Bruno Walter leading the Columbia Symphony Orchestra.
---- and more Brahms - Book 4 of his Hungarian Dances with Veri & Jamanis.
