Short history of Arnold Schoenberg!

Arnold Schoenberg was born Sept. 13, 1874 to a lower middle-class family to Pauline Nachod and Samuel Schoenberg in Vienna and died on July 13 1951. His development of the twelve-tone series in the field of music and atonal music are the two greatest developments that the twentieth century had seen. Schoenberg’s works added vigor to the maturing romantic period. Arnold Schoenberg’s life helped to inspire one of the great novels of the twentieth century, Thomas Mann’s ‘Doctor Faustus’.

He will share with you

How being self-taught ended up in crazy music
Thoughts on the Sex-tet poem Transfigured Night
Handling the riotous, conservative Viennese audiences
How bankers are girly men
How teaching and eating go together
How he was always the first in the family to try…
His strange remembrance of the words of Pierrot Lunaire
The meaning of 12 tone music – 6 pack vs. 12 pack
What it means to be an undecipherable genius
and much more.

And we will hear excerpts of his music:

Mozart

On Wednesday, July 13 at 12 noon on KKSM Radio, AM 1320, the radio revolution, and www.palomarcollegeradio.com Mary Ellen’s guest will be Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Short history of Mozart!

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on January 27 1756 and died Dec. 5, 1791. A prolific artist and Austrian composer he created a string of operas, concertos, symphonies and sonatas that profoundly shaped classical music. One other composer of the time who came close to matching Mozart’s genius was Franz Joseph Haydn. The two became great friends, learned much from each other, and together created the models that future composers used to write symphonies and string quartets.

He will share with you

Mozart speaks to you directly:

How he was teased on the playground as a child.
Why he changed his name from Theophilis to Amadeus.
How he was rumored to be a dwarf instead of a child of 9.
The poem he wrote for his pet starling when it died.
What he thought about the soundtrack from the 1984 movie Amadeus.
How he likes scatological humor and his new composition to demonstrate.
What animal costume he would wear if he were a rock star like Elton John.
His joy that “The Magic Flute” helps microbes break down sewage.
Why archbishop of Salzburg’s secretary kicked him in the butt.
and much more.

And we will hear excerpts of his music:
