SEATTLE CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL

Friday, July 6, 8 PM Pacific (11 PM Eastern)

Broadcast live at KING-FM

Saint-Saëns: Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano in E minor, Op. 92
Karen Gomyo, violin
Bion Tsang, cello
Jeewon Park, piano

This is a great piece with some fine violin writing.

Prokofiev: Sonata for Two Violins, Op. 56
Augustin Hadelich, violin
Erin Keefe, violin

I’ve probably heard this one, and I expect it might be a bit tough on the ear.

Tchaikovsky: String Quartet in D, Op. 11
Ida Levin, violin
Andrew Wan, violin
David Harding, viola
Edward Arron, cello

This is the culmination of ten years work for me. Every year I provide a list of requests for pieces that the festival has never done or has not done in at least a decade. This one has been on my list since 2002. I lobbied the executive director and the artistic director, and I even took one of the cellists to dinner to push for this piece.

Ida Levin resisted the idea of programming pieces from the string quartet literature because they require a different way of rehearsing and performing. After playing first violin in a Prokofiev quartet a few years ago at the festival, she relented, and I’m delighted to see her playing first violin in this piece. She and Rudolf Serkin performed for Reagan at the White House when she was a teenager, and she was surprised to discover that Reagan knew her father, who was a judge in Los Angeles and a jazz lover. In rehearsals, she is tough on her fellow performers.

I’ll tell you my favorite Ida story.

I went to a post-concert party at a condo in the north end of downtown Seattle. Ida and I sat down, ate and conversed about music for much of the party. Note that Ida is now in her forties. As I was walking her to her car, we crossed the street, and I did the gentlemanly thing, offering her my arm. She said, “You know I’ve been crossing the street alone since I was at least twenty.” I said, “But Ida, that was only five years ago.” She laughed so hard I thought she was going to fall over.

This is a wonderful piece. In the first movement, Tchaikovsky spins a great melody in 9/8.

Prepare yourself for the second movement. It’s a four handkerchief piece, and I recommend at least a box of tissues be on standby. When Leo Tolstoy heard this movement, he broke down.

The third movement is a short scherzo that is often used as an encore piece by professional string quartets.

The finale is beautiful, and the coda is absolutely wild.

Looking Back

July 7, 2012

George Matheson, best known for the hymn, “O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go,” wrote another song titled “Ignored Blessings,” in which he looks back to “the road gone by.” It was by looking back he could see that his heavenly Father had led him all the way.

God has an itinerary for each of us, a “course” that we must run (see Acts 20:24 and 2 Tim. 4:7). Our route is charted in the councils of heaven and rooted in the sovereign purposes of God.

Yet our choices are not irrelevant. We make decisions every day, large and small, some of which have life-altering consequences. The question—aside from the confounding mystery of God’s sovereignty and human choice—is this: How can we discern the course to be run?

The answer is clearer to me now that I’m older and have more of the past to look back on. By looking back, I see that God has led me all the way. I can truthfully say, “God has been my shepherd all my life to this day” (Gen. 48:15 NIV). Though clouds surround the present and I do not know what the future may hold, I have the assurance that the Shepherd will show me the way. My task is to follow Him in love and obedience, and trust each step to Him.

O Father of light and leading,
From the top of each rising hill
Let me cast my eye on the road gone by
To mark the steps of Thy will. —Matheson
We can trust our all-knowing God for the unknown future.

Read: Genesis 48:8-16

God . . . has fed me all my life long to this day. —Genesis 48:15
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 133-136

Let me open by offering apologies for last week-end. A couple of hours before Canteen time we had a massive freak storm here on the ridge with wind gusts to 75 and 80 mph. I lost power (along with most of WV, Ohio, VA and KY) for just over 4 days and had quite the adventure in living "off the grid" and I suppose a dress rehearsal for Armeggedon, but I missed ya much and felt bad that I couldn't get in touch with the Canteen or my fellow Dee-Jays. Even the cell service was sporadic for most of the weekend and I stayed busy trying to preserve frozen foods and walking the perimeter (armed of course), clearing downed trees, rebuilding my vinyard trellis and trying to save my corn which was laid low. All-in-all I'm not much worse for wear, I learned some important lessons about holes in my preps and disaster assistance as friends and neighbors pulled together. I got to use my propane camp stove and break-in my lanterns. By Sunday afternoon I had moved all my various freezers contents to my church in Ohio and had minimal spoilage. God blessed me once again buckaroos with yet another wake-up call and that is my testimony and I'm stickin' to it.

This week (Lord willin') I'm featuring a true icon in popular music although he's often overlooked. Since the early 60's he's be making his mark on multiple genres of music and before I'm done I hope everyone finds something they can cherish in his massive portfolio.

Stephen Lawrence "Stevie" Winwood was born 12 May 1948, in Handsworth, Birmingham, England. Stevie began as a choirboy at St John's Church in Perry Barr, England and it was there that he first encountered an organ and taught himself to play. At the age of eight he began performing with his father (Lawrence Winwood) and older brother Muff in the Ron Atkinson Band in pubs and music halls. From an early age he played drums, guitar and keyboards and excelled at each, but, it was his distinctive soulful vocal abilities that set him apart from his peers and led to a professional music career.

While he was still young, the family moved from Handsworth to the semi-rural suburb of Kingstanding at the northern edge of the city. Winwood was living on Atlantic Road in Great Barr, close to the Birmingham music halls where he was encouraged to play. Even as a pupil at the Great Barr School, before his teen-age years, Winwood was a part of the Birmingham rhythm and blues scene, playing the Hammond B-3 organ and guitar, backing blues singers and pop singers such as Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, T-Bone Walker, Howlin' Wolf, B. B. King, Sonny Boy Williamson, Eddie Boyd, Otis Spann, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley on their United Kingdom tours. The custom at that time was for US singers to travel solo and hire pickup bands and this allowed young Steve to establish himself as a sought-after sideman despite his youth. Young Winwood modelled himself on his idol, Ray Charles, and despite his excellence on most any stringed or percussion instrument, it was that fat, soulful Hammond B-3 organ that became his stock-in-trade.

At the age of 14, Winwood joined the Spencer Davis Group, along with his older brother Muff, who later had success as a record producer. Steve's distinctive high tenor singing voice and vocal style drew comparisons to Ray Charles and Jackie Wilson and led the Spencer Davis Group to success. The first known recording of Steve is this James Bracken; John Lee Hooker cover which he sings and plays guitar on in early 1964:

Yes...we have had some lovely sunny days, punctuated by violent thunderstorms. Linda feels she must protect me from the thunder so she barks at it.

Wished I was home to yell at those imbecilic politicians over that. A minute of silence in congress over Michael Jackson????

Anyway, thanks also. (((hugs))) Janey

Yeah....”normal” is highly overrated...and not much fun. :)

Glad you’re good and hope the internet settles down soon!

This lovely little pop ditty from 1964 was written by Spencer Davis producer Jimmy Miller who would later team with Steve to write some of the group's biggest hits and rock's most enduring anthems including "I'm A Man". This song got the band onto the UK pop charts for the first time with Steve singing and doubling on organ and piano
