Avoid Dehydration

July 6, 2013

A couple of times in the past few years I’ve experienced dehydration and, believe me, it is not something I want to repeat. It happened once after I suffered a torn hamstring while cross-country skiing, and another time in the 115-degree heat of an Israeli desert. Both times I experienced dizziness, disorientation, loss of clear vision, and a host of other symptoms. I learned the hard way that water is vital to maintaining my well-being.

My experience with dehydration gives me a new appreciation for Jesus’ invitation: “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink” (John 7:37). His announcement was dramatic, particularly in terms of the timing. John notes that it was the last day of the “great feast”—the annual festival commemorating the wandering of the Jews in the wilderness—which climaxed with a ceremonial pouring of water down the temple steps to recall God’s provision of water for the thirsty wanderers. At that point, Jesus rose and proclaimed that He is the water we all desperately need.

Living like we really need Jesus—talking to Him and depending on His wisdom—is vital to our spiritual well-being. So, stay connected to Jesus, for He alone can satisfy your thirsty soul!

Dear Lord, forgive me for thinking that I can do life
without the water of Your presence, advice, counsel,
comfort, and conviction. Thank You that You are
indeed the living water that I so desperately need.
Come to Jesus for the refreshing power of His living water.

Read: John 7:37-39

If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. —John 7:37
Bible in a Year:
Job 32-33; Acts 14

I got absolutely NOTHING done I planned on. Lots of phone calls....”my money isn’t in the bank”. Well, we sent it. Finally called that particular bank....they were having computer problems and were finally able to post deposits just before noon.

I am off for home now, via the store for my Mom. Short side trip. Be back shortly.

To: AZamericonnie; ConorMacNessa; Kathy in Alaska; MS.BEHAVIN; LUV W; left that other site
It’s time for the Seattle Chamber Music Festival! We have a concert scheduled for Wednesday, July 10. Thanks to the miracle of the Internet, you can hear the concerts live at the website of KING-FM. I’ll be providing programs and links to the concerts throughout the summer festival. As we approach each concert, I’ll introduce one piece per evening at the Canteen with commentary about the piece. On concert nights, I’ll introduce the musicians.

In 1815, Beethoven sent away to the publishing house of Salomen in London for their expensive Collected Works of George Frederick Handel. Two things happened almost immediately. Up until now Beethoven had been saying that Franz Josef Haydn was the greatest composer who had ever lived. Now with Haydn safely in his grave, Beethoven said that Handel was the greatest composer who had ever lived. The second thing that happened was that fugues started popping up like mushrooms in Beethoven’s work. Thanks to this greater exposure to Handel’s music, Beethoven’s interest in counterpoint was rekindled.

The Heroic Decade of Beethoven’s life was over, and now the composer was looking back to earlier forms of music while attempting to leap ahead into the unknown. This marked the beginning of his Late Period, the years of groundbreaking works that were often not understood until the 20th Century.

His Sonata for Cello and Piano in D, Op. 102/2 is an example of this because the fugue in the finale is one of the compositional monuments of Beethoven’s output. The first movement, marked allegro con brio, one of Beethoven’s favorite directions, starts out with an attention-getting phrase in D Major, and from the beginning it is clear that counterpoint is the major idea.
Less than a minute into the piece Beethoven settles into a placid second subject in A Major. The exposition repeats.
At 3:48 it’s development time, and it starts by going in tonal territory that is unmoored from the concept of key.
The recap starts in the wrong key (G Major) and then slips into the correct key after a few bars. The second subject appears in the correct post-development key of D Major.
The coda at 6:26 shifts uncomfortably through a variety of keys before Beethoven brings it to a close with a final D triad. What is most noticeable with this movement is that Beethoven is working with a short, concise form, with the intention of making his finale the main movement. This is new for the composer.

The second movement, marked adagio con molto sentimento d’affetto, needs no translation. This slow movement in D minor, in ternary format, has a series of phrases broken by silences. It’s a good example of how to use rests as part of your melodic line. The middle section in D Major is a wonderful respite from the gloom and darkness. Just before darkness descends again, this is a little figure on the piano that Max Steiner stole for “Gone With the Wind”. He sneaks carefully into D Major at the end so that he can lay down an A7 chord to lead without pause into the finale.

Ron Thomas, who will be playing this piece, once told me he hesitated to program this piece for concerts because the fugual finale is so thorny for the listeners to comprehend. Late Beethoven tends to be like that, which is why a century – and Wagner – had to go by before people could understand the late works. When the second violinist of the quartet that premiered all of Beethoven’s string quartets told him that the members of the quartet had problems understanding his latest quartets, Beethoven said, “Oh, I didn’t write these for you! I wrote them for a later generation!” Rather than explain all the details of subjects, counter-subjects and stretti, the best way to understand the allegro fugato is to just lie back and let the sheer mathematics of the music flow over you like Bach.
