In Reply to: RE: I guess I think of him more as an opera conductor... posted by Ivan303 on June 05, 2017 at 21:23:01
I didn't put (...Wozzeck...) by (...Berg...) in the subject header
to protect a certain Moderator's sensitive sensibilities.
His name has been changed to protect the innocent.
He may live in Lafayette...
Do you remember a performance of whatever that opera might have been by whomever that composer, thankfully long deceased and who shall for obvious reasons remain anonymous here, by the MET in 2005-06?
So sometime one might pull the car over and wait till the end of a tune on the car radio but this was 'Live as the MET' so the car was pulled over for quite some time!
A 'What The $%^& Is This?' moment, for sure!
But the Last 3 Scenes from that anonymous expressionistic Opera ( if it even exists )
are Wonderful, one of my most ( ...only...) vivid memories, playing that
with the Oakland Symphony w/Carlos Chavez, thought the roof would come off at the peak!
He was good!
Did I mention (...Wozzeck...), by (...Berg...)?
I meant to.
. . . who was conducting! (I'll assume it was Jeffrey Tate!) ;-)
BTW, looking over his discography, I find that it's pretty heavily Germanic.
Well, in a thread about Tate, I assumed that was obvious, but I didn't mention him by name.
That's what you get when posting late at night...
Oh GOD, I'm turning into, into, into,
Maybe HE should get him some Wozzeck and mellow-out.
Presitrump, I could have just hijacked the thread, talking about ME,
and not about what's his name or the other one.
But of course I didn't, though I should have mentioned about that Election I just won.
And those Fake 12 Tone Rows.
Fake, I say.
And the entire FTTRM.
Fake Twelve-Tone Row Media.
