Music courtesy of Bellevue Presbyterian Church & Dr. Ming Wang Answer on terrestrial radio they cost you more! Ask Kim Komando!A token of my appreciation is winging its way toward podnews an online podcast development service from the UK.A podcast critic from the UK dinged a podcast host for “doing it badly”. Of course, he's entitled to his opinion. If you're lucky enough to have a sponsor, treat them well.The only thing poor performance can cost you is listeners & they are everything. Yes, it helps to “separate” commercial content from “editorial” but that's a function of “stingers”. Those little broadcast squiggles are so beloved of “real” radio. I am reminded of a comment by Mark Twain “Never pick a fight with anyone who buys ink by the barrel.”I have changed it to: “Don't pick a fight with anyone who only goes by initials which includes: IRS, BMI, & ASCAP.”FYI/Internal Revenue Service (the income tax guys - for the benefit of listers in the UK), Broadcast Music Inc, American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers. You don't want to get that message “Show us your copyright”.Fortunately for this podcaster, my Apple is populated with stingers & jingles, “Apple's” royalty-free music This podcast critique reminds me of those words of George Bernard Shaw “England & America are one people separated by a common language."

As I have been reminded by Scott, we do in fact have "Composers" in our title. As such, I figured its time to throw out some awesome opinions for our followers to debate. It should be noted that this list was incredibly hard to compile, but I would be remiss to not do it now. Also, chances are if you ask me again in a month this list will be quite different. But the top spot hasn't changed in quite some time... Being a composer myself (Scott is also a composer), I have lots of opinions what makes a good film score. I am also aware that it is an ever changing soundscape that has evolved over time. Additionally, what makes up a good film score is hard to quantify. Personally, I tend to rely on a few things: - Was it memorable? Did the themes and soundscapes stick with me after? - Did it help create the "world" that the film exists in or was it just background filler? - I love leitmotif. How well does the composer employ themes for characters, places, feelings, etc. I tend to be biased towards my favorite composers like John Williams, Hans Zimmer, and Danny Elfman. That being said I also love discovering new composers like Bear McCreary and Ramin Djawadi. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/composerscape/support

Mass in B minor: Christe eleison

A Moment of Bach

The “Kyrie” section of a mass comes first and must make an impression. Composers of ages past had learned to write a contrasting phrase in the middle: “Kyrie eleison, Christe eleison, Kyrie eleison.” Bach takes this to an extreme; two grand archaic Kyries frame a stylish, Italian opera style soprano duet. It couldn't be more opposite.    The beautiful intervals of thirds and sixths make the duet harmony, except when a special moment is called for, when we hear tense seconds and sevenths. But everything has its opposite, even within this duet. Thirds later become sixths, and seconds sevenths. Bach uses these relationships to balance the structure of the delicate prayer “Christ Have Mercy.”   Christe Eleison (Netherlands Bach Society): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FLbiDrn8IE&t=667s   Renaissance Kyrie example: William Byrd, Mass for Four Voices (Ensemble Morales) Creative Commons License 3.0

In her new book, Sound Within Sound, writer and BBC presenter Kate Molleson tells the stories of 20th century composers whose work was groundbreaking, but who are underrepresented in history because what they made didn't sound like "traditional" classical music. Though conversations around race, gender, diversity, and classical music have seen progress in recent years, Molleson tells Talia Schlanger that there is still a significant gap in the canon when it comes to recognizing many of the trailblazing composers outside Europe and the United States.

Synopsis On today's date in 1931, the Russian-born American conductor, and composer Nicolas Slonimsky was in Paris conducting the first of two concerts of ultra-modern music from the New World. These were presented under the auspices of the Pan American Association of Composers, and funded by an anonymous philanthropist Slonimsky later identified as retired insurance executive and fellow composer Charles Ives. Slonimsky had approached Ives early in 1931 with the idea of presenting a series of new music concerts in New York. When that proved too costly, they suggested mounting the same concerts in Paris. “In 1931, the dollar was still almighty among world currencies,” recalled Slonimsky. “Ives gave me a letter of credit to the Paris branch of the Chase Manhattan Bank in the amount of $1500, an enormous sum of money in French francs at the time. The prestigious Orchestra Straram was engaged for my first Paris concert. I had a brilliant audience: composers, journalists, painters, Italian futurists. There was applause, but also puzzled responses.” One French music critic even entitled his review “The Discovery of America,” writing, “We have, (without joking), just discovered America, thanks to a Christopher Columbus called Slonimsky.” As for Ives, he was very pleased with the success of the concerts, and for a time jokingly addressed Slonimsky as either “Columbus et Vespuccius,” Music Played in Today's Program Henry Cowell (1897 – 1965) –Synchrony (Polish National Radio Orchestra; William Strickland, cond.)
