Extractions: This is a wonderful collection of the sort of little pieces that used to form the latter part of many violinists' recitals in the early part of the 20th century. They aren't often heard today, and that's a shame. This is a great collection for anyone who loves violin music and likes to hear the violin smile (although it contains a few teary pieces as well). My personal favorite piece on this CD is Jeno Hubay's Zephyr (although I loved many of the others also) and I felt that hearing this one piece was worth the price of the CD. Sherry Kloss does well to express the feeling in each of these little pieces. They aren't all played in the same style she brings out the individual character of each one. Ayke Agus does a fantastic job of accompanying Ms. Kloss at the piano, no doubt due to her familiarity with the pieces. The two of them play as one.

Edward MacDowell lessons at eight with Juan Buitrago, a Columbian emigré living with the MacDowells (later the teacher of the American violinist, albert spalding), and took http://www.eroica.com/phoenix/jdt148-emd.html
Extractions: After marrying Marian Nevins, MacDowell settled for about three years (1885-1888) in Wiesbaden where the couple received among other musical friends, George Templeton Strong, Jr., George Whitefield Chadwick, Arthur Foote, and most importantly, Benjamin Johnson Lang, one of the arbiters of musical taste in Boston. Lang subsequently convinced MacDowell to move to the Boston area to pursue his career as a composer, performer, and teacher. He made his American debut in Boston as composer-pianist at a Kneisel Quartet concert at Chickering Hall, November 19,1888 playing three movements from his First Modern Suite and assisting in Goldmark's Piano Quintet in B-flat. On Lang's recommendation, Wilhelm Gericke invited MacDowell to play Ids new Second Piano Concerto, Op. 23, with the Boston Symphony Orchestra in the spring of 1889, but he actually played the work with an orchestra under Theodore Thomas in New York, s Chickering Hall on March 5, 1889, a month before the Boston concerto April 12, The conductor Frank van der Stucken invited MacDowell to play the concerto in a concert of American music at the Paris Exposition Universelle on July 12. From that inaugural year of 1888 to 1896, when he left Boston to accept an appointment as Columbia University's first professor of music, MacDowell's successes as a virtuoso and composer continued unabated. It was during this period that most of the major works on which his reputation as a composer rests were created: Hamlet and Ophelia, Op. 22; Lancelot and Elaine, Op. 25; Six Love Songs, Op. 40; First Orchestral Suite, Op. 42;Sonata tragica, Op.45; Eight Songs, Op. 47; The Indian Suite (Second Orchestral Suite), Op. 48; Sonata eroica, Op, 50; and Woodland Sketches, Op. 51.
"Handel"_Concerto_By_Henri_Casadesus Also contained on this disc is the Sinfonia Concertate in E by WA Mozart, Primrose is joined by violinist albert spalding, conductor Fritz Stiedry, and the the http://www.geocities.com/Vienna/2107/viola/casadesu.html
Extractions: Henri Gustave Casadesus, 1879 to 1947 , was a gifted violist. He was also very interested in rare instruments and found a society in Paris that gave performances on such instrtuments up until the beginning of the second world war. Some of Casadesus' instruments are still in the collection of the Boston Symphony. Becoming something of a "musical diplomat", Casadesus traveled the United States performing in various quartets and orchestras, often with his brothers. One of the things the Casadesus brothers became famous for was debuting 'rediscovered' works of 18th Century composers such as Mozart, C.P.E. Bach, and Handel. At the time, these works were taken at face value, but stylistic analyzation since has revealed that these works were not what they seemed. In fact, during the last few years, evidence has come to light that the Casadesus brothers wrote these pieces themselves! It is worth mentioning that the Casadesus family has never denied these allegations. At any rate, the concerto is a solid, delightful work, displaying the the skills of the preformer well. While it seems unlikely that a concerto would have been written by Handel for such an obscure instrument (in his time!!) as the viola, the work never-th-eless is deeply rooted in the late Baroque/Early Classical style. That is: rigid structure, piano to forte dynamics, and the three movement form. The work was well-recived when it was debuted, though it has dropped from the spotlight in recent times. Its fortunes rallied, however, when the Suzuki method books selected this concerto to complete their Viola Method Book 8 and have since made a recording to bundle with the book.

Extractions: Maker of Violins, Violas and Cellos Movie Star: "Bethany Violin!" MOVIE STAR! One of Thurmond's violins, Bethany stars prominently in the 1999 video "Covered Bridges of New England," produced by Fritz Wetherbee for PBS. As the program opens, viewers are told Thurmond made the violin using wood from the Cornish-Windsor Covered Bridge. What follows is a beautiful serenade on Bethany , played by violinist Victoria Kehler of Concord, NH. Victoria teaches violin and viola at the Concord Community Music School in New Hampshire. The Bethany violin, named in honor of Thurmond's wife, Bethany Greeley Knight, was commissioned in 1990 by Leo Maslan, of Cornish, NH, as an anniversary gift for his wife Kathleen. The violin was presented in 1990 as a surprise gift after an unsuspecting Kathleen was treated to a concert on the Bethany violin by Drusilla Macy, staged at an intimate dinner at a Hartland, Vermont restaurant. Kathleen graciously loaned Bethany to Victoria for the "Covered Bridges" production. Here Leo is presenting the violin to Kathleen, seated, while Thurmond and violinist Drusilla Macy of Barre, Vermont look on.

Extractions: There are enough musical instruments in Nicholas Brooke's small apartment to equip a sizablealbeit motleyorchestra. But the 33-year-old composer is mostly preoccupied these days with recorded music, specifically a 1915 Victrola, one of the first phonographs manufactured. In fact, Mr. Brooke is using the phonograph as an instrument, incorporating snippets of recordings into his work. An interest in recorded music and its relationship to live performance has led Mr. Brooke, recent recipient of a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship award, to embark on a project based on the Edison tone tests, a series of marketing events that were held in the 1910's and early 1920's to promote Edison's diamond disc phonographs. In the tests, blindfolded listeners compared the singing and playing of musicians on a stage to the phonographic reproduction of similar performances. In "Tone Test," Mr. Brooke plans to outfit some musicians with small speakers; others will hold boomboxes as they alternately perform and broadcast the music from several linked compositions that he is writing. Two narrators will interact with the musicians and with an original Diamond Disc phonograph. "I intend my tone test piece to be a cultural commentary on how sound technologies affect how we hear music," Mr. Brooke said. "We usually think of music as a purely sonic phenomenon, yet much of what's interesting to me is the tension between what you see and hear, and whether what you hear and see is faked or not."

Extractions: Originally built in 1933, the Memorial Chapel, as it was initially referred during its planning stages in 1920, was to be devoted to those who went from Tennessee to the service during the Great War and would contain about 2,000 people, be equipped with a fine pipe organ and have a stage whereon the student plays may be given and other exercises of the university held in proper fashion. In 1926, with funds generated by a tobacco tax initiated by then Tennessee Gov.. Austin Peay and contributions from university alumni, the Alumni Memorial Auditorium came to fruition. It was formally dedicated to the universitys "war dead" during 1934 homecoming activities. A host of university activities soon found a home at Alumni with Commencement moving from Jefferson Hall, and Carnicus, the carnival/circus benefiting athletics and the YMCA, Torch Night and All Sing following. In addition to these time-honored university traditions, November 1937 featured the "Tennessee Nightingale" Grace Moore returning to her native East Tennessee in her first concert under the auspices of The University of Tennessee The program, according to the papers of Ralph Frost housed in Hoskins Library, was sponsored by the Student-Faculty Entertainment Committee and was a tremendous success, both financially and culturally, with an attendance of 3,911. This resounding turnout by Knoxville and the university community more than indicated a strong desire of the public for other attractions of similar type.
