A Little Bit of Broadway

Finian's Rainbow

Between now and the awards ceremony, we are going to listen to as many of the Tony Awards nominated shows as we can. Finian’s Rainbow tells the story of the Irishman Finian McLonergan and his daughter Sharon who travel to a small Southern town in the mythical state of Missitucky with plans to bury a stolen pot of gold in the shadows of Fort Knox, in the mistaken belief it will grow and multiply. The musical's lush score by Burton Lane and E. Y. Harburg contains several beloved standards. It’s been nominated for 3 awards –

Best Revival of a Musical
Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical Kate Baldwin
Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical Christopher Fitzgerald

Music: Burton Lane
Lyrics: E.Y. Harburg
Book: E.Y. Harburg, Fred Saidy

A Little Bit of Broadway

A Little Night Music
2010 revivial

The Tony Award nominations were announced last Tuesday and, as per our custom, we will listen to as many of them as we can get our hands on between now and the awards show on June 13th.

Best Musical nominations went to:
American Idiot
Fela!
Memphis
Million Dollar Quartet

Best revival of a musical nominees are
Finian's Rainbow
La Cage aux Folles
A Little Night Music
Ragtime

Not all shows have cast recordings, but we’ll listen to as many as we can.

Today, we’ll start of with the first Broadway revival of my second all-time favorite Broadway show. Stephen Sondheim based A Little Night Music on Ingmar Bergman’s film Smiles of a Summer Night. It evolves around 3 families and surprising liaisons and long simmering passions. I’ve loved this show since I first heard the cast recording in 1973, then first saw it in Pittsburgh with Dixie Carter as Desiree. Being in the cast of Juneau Lyric Opera's production is certainly a highlight of my singing life.

For a show that was nominated for 12 tony’s and won 6, it’s amazing it has never had a major revival until now. The only reason I can think of is that it’s the only Sondheim show with a top 40 hit – Send in the clowns.


Nominated for 4 awards:

Best Revival of a Musical
Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical: Catherine Zeta-Jones
Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical: Angela Lansbury
Best Sound Design of a Musical: Dan Moses Schreier and Gareth Owen

Music: Stephen Sondheim
Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim
Book: Hugh Wheeler
Basis: 1955 Ingmar Bergman film Smiles of a Summer Night

We only have time to listen to Act 1 today.

Act 1
Overture — Mr. Lindquist, Mrs. Nordstrom, Mrs. Anderssen, Mr. Erlanson and Mrs. Segstrom (Quintet)
Night Waltz — Company
Now — Fredrik Egerman
Later — Henrik Egerman
Soon — Anne Egerman

Welllllll, this is the last day in the old corral, we will be in our new studio tomorrow with all its new technology and a window to look out of! Yes! So for our last program something new to look forward to the new studio and some "lasts" to close off the old experiences.
Here is the last of the six Solo Suites for Cello by Bach, BWV 1012 played by Zwill Bailey on a 17th century cello.
A new composer from the Netherlands, well not new but new to me a umdoubtedly he will be new to you. His name is Tristan Keuris and his dates are 1946 - 1996. A mere 50 years and of limited output. The Netherlands Radio sent us a complete set of his works on 11 cd's. So as an introduction:
Variations for Strings written in 1985. We will hear the Netherlands Radio Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Henrik Schaefer.
One of the composers of the day is Ernest Bloch. We will close out our second hour with his Prayer from "A Hebrew Life" to be performed by Julius Burger with the Polish National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Antoni Wit.
In the second half we open with another anniversay boy - Joseph Haydn. This time it is his Symphony No. 104 AKA the London Symphony. Sir Charles Mackerras and the Orchestra of St. Luke's.
Following is more from Ernest Bloch: his Hebrew Rhapsody performed once again by Julius Burger with the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra.
And then to Stravinsky, his Symphony ion C which I believe is one of his best neo-classical pieces: The Symphony in C. We will hear the CBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by the composer.
For the last piece we shall hear the last piiece of music written by Dmitri Schostakovich - his Sonata for Viola and Piano, Opus 147 and -
tomorrow I will see you in the new studio!
