The Arab Spring erupted eleven years ago when a wave of "pro-democracy" protests spread throughout the Middle East and North Africa. The effects of the uprisings reverberated around the world as regimes fell in some countries, and civil war began in others. This week, we remember the years leading up to the Arab Spring, and its lasting impact on three people who lived through it.

Synopsis On today's date in 1972, almost two decades after its premiere, Erich Wolfgang Korngold's Symphony in F-sharp received its first successful concert performance by the Munich Philharmonic led by Rudolf Kempe. A recording was made with the same performers, supervised and produced by the composer's son, George Korngold. Korngold had died in 1959, so was not able to enjoy the eventual success of this major work. He completed his Symphony in 1950, and its Austrian Radio premiere in 1954 had been a disaster. As the composer himself put it: “The performance, which was an execution in every sense of the term, took place under the most unfavorable conditions imaginable, with inadequate rehearsals and an exhausted and overworked orchestra.” Korngold had become an American citizen during the 1940s, and dedicated his Symphony to the memory of America's wartime President, Franklin D. Roosevelt. The postwar European premiere of his Symphony came at a time when shifting tastes in music made his late-Romantic style seem hopelessly old-fashioned to many of critics of that day. “More corn than gold” was one dismissive appraisal of his style. These days, Korngold's music – including his Symphony –make more frequent, better-played, and eagerly welcomed appearances on concert programs. Music Played in Today's Program Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897 – 1957) — Symphony, Op. 40 (Philadelphia Orchestra; Franz Welser-Most, cond.) EMI 56169

The Lady Dame returns to the show this week to watch one of the greatest musicals ever made, specifically because it's an anti-musical. Of course, a film that wins a Palme d'Or doesn't really need us to gush over it, but upon first seeing this, it's so against every musical trope you've ever known that it might turn you off entirely. If you hang with it, though, this movie will unfold as a sweet, thoughtful, mature story told entirely (and we mean entirely) through music. The French New Wave was known for breaking rules, but the subtle subversion of tropes in this film is so potent as to do something nearly impossible - make a movie musical that might be better on screen than on the stage.

Synopsis On today's date in 1934, after 10 intense rehearsals, the Orquestra Sinfonica de Mexico, conducted by the Carlos Chávez, gave the premiere performance of the Symphony No. 2 of the American composer Aaron Copland. Copland's Second was titled ‘The Short Symphony,” but there was a lot packed into its 15-minute duration. Said Copland, “The Short Symphony's preoccupation is with complex rhythms, combined with clear textures. Sonority-wise, the most rhythmically complex moments have a certain lightness and clarity.” “Shortly after its Mexican introduction,” recalled Copland, “the piece was announced for an American premiere by Leopold Stokowski with the Philadelphia Orchestra but was never given. A similarly announced performance by the Boston Symphony under Koussevitzsky was also cancelled. Both told me subsequently that they had announced performances because they had admired the work, but that the composition was so intricate from a rhythmic standpoint that they dared not attempt a performance within the allotted period.” In 1937, Copland recast his “Short Symphony” as a chamber sextet, leaving the music fundamentally unchanged, but re-barring the score to make it less challenging for performers. It wasn't until the 1980s, decades after its Mexican premiere, that Copland's Symphony was performed by American orchestras in its original form.

Unfortunately, it's also kind of a hot mess, especially because our directing is so disjointed that it makes two fairly good actors turn their compelling romantic leads into utter cardboard cutouts.

CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE ON YOUR FAVORITE PODCATCHER CONTENT WARNING: Discussion of sexism, mind games, manipulation. AJ Ganaros of Christmastide, Ohio and Shattered Worlds RPG joins us this week to talk about a weird movie. This time, it's not the script (which is outstanding, funny, and thoughtful) or the directing (bold, energetic, gorgeous). For once, it's the cast that just doesn't make any sense, because Marlon Brando doesn't belong in this movie, and he knows it. Worse yet, Frank Sinatra also knows it, and just seems bitter that he's not playing Brando's role. The two of them just seem to be so miscast, and so out of their element, that they can't really match the magic of their co-stars and supporting cast. Which is a testament to everything else about this movie, because even with the awkwardness of those stars this movie is still an absolute banger.

Stravinsky in C Major

Synopsis On today's date in 1940, the Chicago Symphony helped to celebrate their 50th anniversary with the premiere performance of a specially commissioned symphony from the famous Russian composer Igor Stravinsky. Stravinsky himself was on hand to conduct his “Symphony in C” – a work that attracted a great deal of attention at the time. For starters, writing a symphony in the key of C Major seemed a defiantly anti-modern gesture at a time when Arnold Schoenberg's “twelve tone” method of composition was gaining ground with prominent American musicians and critics. Now, traditionally the key of C Major was deemed a “happy” or “bright” key, but Stravinsky composed his Symphony during one of the unhappiest periods of his life, when his wife, his mother and one of his daughters had all died in rapid succession. “It is no exaggeration to say that in the following weeks I was able to continue my own life only by my work on the Symphony in C,” wrote Stravinsky. “But I did not seek to overcome my grief by portraying or giving expression to it in music, and you will listen in vain, I think, for traces of this sort of personal emotion.” Music Played in Today's Program Igor Stravinsky (1882 – 1971) — Symphony in C (Chicago Symphony; Sir Georg Solti, cond.)

Beethoven and Brusa take it slow

Synopsis For later Romantic composers like Richard Wagner, Beethoven's Seventh Symphony was “the apotheosis of the dance,” and certainly sitting still during the Symphony's dizzying finale is not always easy… … but for those in the audience at its premiere in 1813, as part of a benefit concert for wounded Bavarian and Austrian soldiers, it was the somber slow movement that proved most attractive. Perhaps audiences read more into it than Beethoven intended, given the occasion, but over time, the slow movements of many symphonies not only got longer, but by the time of Bruckner and Mahler also became the emotional “heart” of the composition, and are sometimes performed as stand-alone concert pieces. On today's date in 1999, this “Adagio” by the Italian composer Elisabetta Brusa received its premiere performance by the Virtuosi of Toronto. Brusa was born in 1954 in Milan and studied music at the Milan Conservatory. “My Adagio,” she writes, “is a freely structured composition in a single movement inspired by well-known masterpieces, such as those by Albinoni, Mahler, and Barber. Independent of a pre-established form, sonata, or suite, it originated as an autonomous composition in the expressive style which have distinguished the numerous Adagios of the past.” Music Played in Today's Program Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 – 1827) — Symphony No. 7 (Berlin Philharmonic; Claudio Abbado, cond.)

Synopsis At the dawn of the 20th century, Teddy Roosevelt was president and America was in an upbeat, prosperous mood. Cultural affairs were not forgotten, either. To the already established American symphony orchestras in cities like New York, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati and San Francisco, new ensembles would spring up in Philadelphia, St. Louis, Cleveland, and Seattle. On today's date in 1903, it was Minneapolis' turn. On November 5th of that year, a German-born musician named Emil Oberhoffer led the first concert of the newly formed Minneapolis Symphony. In those days it was a 50-piece ensemble, but in the course of the next 100 years, would double in size and change its name to the “Minnesota” Orchestra. As this is the Composers Datebook, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention that the Minnesota Orchestra has enjoyed a special relationship with a number of leading American composers. Aaron Copland conducted the orchestra on a memorable and televised Bicentennial Concert in 1976, and two young American composers, Stephen Paulus and Libby Larsen, served as composers-in-residence with the orchestra in the 1980s. The orchestra has also given the premiere performances of works by Charles Ives, John Adams, Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, Dominick Argento, and Aaron Jay Kernis, among many others.

This movie's such a Hollywood tragedy, it's been made 4 different times in this title, and a good number of times as different scripts. But as we get into in this episode, we're discovering that there might be a solid reason to remake this - because up until 2018, no one had gotten it right. One version has the right emotional balance, but is overlong, packed with too many performances, and was utterly destroyed by the studio. And one…well, one of these might just be the worst movie we've ever had to watch for this show. Get ready to be a star as we discuss the 1954 and 1976 versions of A Star is Born this week on Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?!
