March 28 - Speeding Forward

The day's 21st-Century Music update and out the door,

ever-careful to have plenty of time to spare,

towards Diablo for Quiz 10 review -- including new video excerpts of George Gershwin's Piano Prelude No. 2 and Anton Webern's Cantata No. 1: I, also GG's Rhapsody in Blue (two sections of Walt Disney's Fantasia 2000) and film of Porgy and Bess: Summertime, plus the Sergei Prokofiev themes from Peter in the Wolf, again from Disney, and an old movie re Kurt Weill Threepenny Opera: Ballad of Mack the Knife... all with notational examples, of course.  Finish up the latter's consequent 16-bars of melody, and really conclude for the session with Nicolas's mixed-mode Composition 2.  Again in the lab, producing Garishtone / Tritone Orchestra recordings of

Symphony No. 3: IIb, Op. 75
Psalm 74, Op. 197, No. 2 (troped on Ralph Vaughan Williams's Symphony No. 8: II)
The Cop and the Anthem: I, Op. 198
The Decameron, First Day, Novel II ("Melchizedek and Jehannot"), Op. 200




afternoon sun to produce the next pdf for Merton Songs (50), and ensuing compositional page (59) of The Decameron.  Also begin Psalm 91, mapped on Mendelssohn's analog.
