The latest installments of our Live from Jacobs series present a master of the French art song and the first live opera partnership by the Jacobs School of Music and WFIU. On Saturday, February 15, at 8 p.m. we present a live performance of the first opera set in the Vietnamese culture: The Tale of Lady Thị Kính, by Jacobs School faculty composer P. Q. Phan. According to Phan, “The opera depicts the transcendental journey of a woman who becomes a Buddha. The music becomes more substantial as she moves through each step in her journey, uplifting the audience.” The production has stage direction by Vincent Liotta, costumes by Linda Pisano, set design by Erhard Rom, and music direction by David Effron. Tune in on Wednesday, February 19, at 8 p.m. for a live recital from Auer Hall by world-renowned French baritone François Le Roux performing songs by Debussy, Ravel, Fauré, and Poulenc. Le Roux will be accompanied by IU faculty member Jean-Louis Haguenauer, who has recorded Debussy’s complete works for piano. The concert is part of Haguenauer’s multi-year project funded by an IU New Frontiers Grant. Le Roux is one of the five singers on Haguenauer’s recording of the complete vocal music of Debussy, which is slated for release this year.

Ask the Mayor, WFIU’s interview program with mayors of communities in our listening area, has a new format. Formerly a half-hour call-in program originating from the WFIU studios, the new Ask the Mayor segments will now feature conversations with the mayors recorded right in their communities. Reporters from the WFIU/WTIU News Bureau will visit the mayors on a regular schedule—starting with Greencastle the first week of the month, followed by weekly visits to Terre Haute, Bloomington, and Kokomo. The Ask the Mayor segments will run on Wednesdays during Morning Edition and All Things Considered. The segments will also air on WTIU’s weekly news program Indiana Newsdesk, which covers the economy, politics, education, and the environment. The half-hour program airs Fridays at 6 p.m. One thing about Ask the Mayor that hasn’t changed: It’s still a great opportunity to have your mayor’s ear about issues that concern you.

WFIU’s featured artist for the month of February is jazz trombonist Wayne Wallace, professor of practice at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. Wallace directs the Latin Jazz Ensemble and teaches courses in jazz trombone and jazz history. One of the most respected exponents of African American-Latin music in the world today, Wallace is a six-time Grammy nominee who was placed in both the trombone and producer categories of the DownBeat Critics Poll. Born and raised in San Francisco, Wallace credits the diverse soundscape of the Bay Area with shaping his career. In addition to performance studies at San Francisco State University, he studied privately with Julian Priester, Bobby Hutcherson, and Will Sudmeier and has also travelled to Cuba, New York City, and Puerto Rico to study Afro-Latin music and jazz. Over the past four decades, Wallace has performed and recorded with numerous acclaimed artists, including The Count Basie Orchestra, Ray Charles, Lena Horne, Gladys Knight, Patti Labelle, Tito Puente, Sonny

Rollins, The Temptations, James Taylor, The Asian American Jazz Orchestra, Dionne Warwick, Irakere, and Stevie Wonder. An accomplished composer and arranger for both film and television, Wallace has received grants from the Creative Work Fund, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Lila Wallace Foundation, the Zellerbach Foundation, and the San Francisco Arts Commission. In 1993, he won the Bay Area Theater Critics Award for best original score in a drama for the musical Pecong. Wallace also co-composed and arranged the soundtrack to Speaking in Tongues, a documentary about bilingual education that has been broadcast nationwide on PBS. As the head of Patois Records, Wallace has fostered a label dedicated to the promotion and support of improvisational music. Under Wallace’s leadership, the label has released more than 13 discs, including recordings by the Wayne Wallace Latin Jazz Quintet, Marc and Paul van Wageningen, and vocalists Trelawny Rose and Kristina. Since 1983, Wallace has conducted lectures, workshops, and clinics in the Americas and Europe and is a member of the Advisory Committees of the San Jose Jazz

Featured Contemporary Composer WFIU’s featured contemporary composer for February is American composer George Theophilus Walker. Internationally celebrated as a composer and pianist, George Walker (b. 1922) studied piano at the Oberlin College Conservatory with David Moyer and organ with Arthur Poister. He went on to study with Rudolf Serkin at the Curtis Institute of Music, where he graduated with Artist Diplomas in piano and composition in 1945. That same year, Walker made his debut in New York’s Town Hall, becoming the first black instrumentalist to perform in that venue. In 1950, Walker was signed by National Concert Artists and took part in a tour of seven European countries. He later became the first black recipient of a doctoral degree from the Eastman School of Music in 1956 and had additional studies with Nadia Boulanger at the American Conservatory, Fontainebleau after receiving both a Fulbright Fellowship and a John Hay Whitney Fellowship in 1957.

George Theophilus Walker

A distinguished teacher, Walker has held positions at Dillard University in New Orleans, the New School of Social Research, Smith College, the University of Colorado, Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University, the University of Delaware, and Rutgers University (1969– 92), where he was chairman of the Music Department. Walker’s style reflects the influences of Stravinsky, Schoenberg, Debussy, and Ravel and is characterized by neo-classical forms along with aspects of serialism. His compositional output includes over 90 works for orchestra, chamber orchestra,

Wallace has also taught workshops in Germany and at the National School of the Arts in Havana, Cuba. WFIU will feature performances by Wayne Wallace in our jazz music programming throughout the month of February. piano, strings, voice, organ, clarinet, guitar, brass, woodwinds, and chorus. Awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1996 for his work Lilacs for Voice and Orchestra, Walker became the first African American man so honored. His works have been commissioned and performed by major orchestras and ensembles worldwide, including the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, Boston Symphony, and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. In April 2000, Walker was inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame in a ceremony at the Library of Congress. He served as the composer-in-residence for the Ritz Chamber Players during their 2008– 2009 concert season, and was honored by the Newark School of the Arts in 2011. Additional awards include Guggenheim, Rockefeller, and MacDowell fellowships, a Fromm Foundation commission, an American Academy of Arts and Letters Award, and two Alumni Awards from the Eastman School of Music. WFIU will feature music of George Theophilus Walker in our classical music programming throughout the month of February. February 2014 / Directions in Sound / Page 3


Featured Classical Recordings Selections from each week’s featured recording can be heard throughout WFIU’s local classical music programming. A weekly podcast of our featured classical recordings is available through our website, wfiu.org, under the “podcasts” link. February 3–9 Between Worlds (Deutsche Grammophon 0289 479 1069 5) Avi Avital, mandolin The mandolin is usually associated with Bluegrass music or moonlight serenades on Venetian canals—not with the classical repertoire. That hasn’t stopped Israeli mandolinist Avi Avital, who is building a fresh legacy for the mandolin through virtuosic performance and the commission of new works in a range of genres. In his hands, the instrument dances through Dvořák and Bartók and travels from Baroque fantasies to Yiddish melodies and Romanian folk dances as if all this were the most natural thing in the world. February 10–16 Telemann: Double Concerti for Winds & Strings (Bridge 9421) Rebel Jörg-Michael Schwarz, director When Georg Philipp Telemann began writing concertos, he already had a solid foundation as a skillful violinist, and among the concertos recorded here are the two double violin concertos in G major. No less a musician than J.S. Bach, then Kapellmeister in Weimar, made a copy of one of them. The Concerto for Violin and Trumpet is the most Italianate of the concertos presented here, and the Concerto in e minor for Recorder and Traverso is one of Telemann’s best known concertos.

Jazz Notes

The New York Virtuoso Singers is a twelve- to sixteen-member professional choral ensemble dedicated to presenting seldom-heard works by past and contemporary masters, with a special emphasis on supporting American composers. The ensemble celebrates their 25th season with this recording of works by 25 contemporary composers commissioned for this milestone. February 24–March 2 Bach Concertos (Decca B0019301-02) Janine Jansen, violin Janine Jansen releases a brand new Bach recording, joined by a hand-picked group of exceptional musicians. Recording the popular E major and A minor concertos alongside the Violin and Oboe Concerto in C minor and two violin sonatas for the first time, Jansen and her ensemble explore these well-known works with a spirit of complete freshness. In the Double Concerto she is joined by two-time ECHO Award-winning oboist Ramón Ortega Quero. Jansen’s ensemble accompaniment on the recording includes her brother, cellist Maarten Jansen, and her father, harpsichordist Jan Jansen.

Owen Johnson hosts. (repeat) February 23 – Glenn Close, Pamela Harrington, and Bernice Pescosolido

February 9 – Ross Gay

This hour, a search for order and balance in the world around us. We ask how symmetry shapes our very existence—from the origins of the universe, to what we see when we look in the mirror. Along the way we look for love in ancient Greece, head to modern-day Princeton to peer inside our brains, and turn up an unlikely headline from the Oval Office circa 1979. February 9 Fate and Fortune What decides the trajectory of our lives, our successes or failures, our steps and stumbles? Do we achieve through force of will, or does fate have us by throat? This hour, Radiolab explores the tug of war between destiny and self-determination— from a kid reaching for a marshmallow to hints of dementia in the words of a 20-year-old. February 16 Sperm

Peering through his microscope at the seeds of human life, the discoverer of sperm thought he was seeing the smallest incarnation of a human soul. If that was the case, why so many wasted souls? We turn to the animal kingdom to answer that question, which launches a tour of flying pig sperm, promiscuous whippoorwills, and sperm battles in ducks. February 23 Dead Reckoning From a duel with the world’s deadliest disease to a surprising peek into the way doctors think about death, in this hour Radiolab reckons with the grim reaper. And in the end, we confront the question at the heart of it all—when the time comes to finally leave, how do we want to go?

It is taught in schools and has been turned into a Broadway play. Now, nearly a quartercentury later, Grisham has written a sequel. Sycamore Row returns to that famous courthouse in Clanton as Jake Brigance once again finds himself embroiled in a fiercely controversial trial—one that will expose old racial tensions and force Ford County to confront its tortured history. Seth Hubbard has assets of 20 million dollars and is dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. The day before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten will that disinherits his children and gives 90 percent of his estate to his black caretaker, Lettie Lang. It is an act that drags his adult children and Jake into a conflict as riveting as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County’s most notorious citizens. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why did Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to Lettie Lang? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly? And what does it all have to do with a piece of land once known as Sycamore Row? A New York Times #1 bestseller, Sycamore Row returns to the setting and the compelling characters that first established John Grisham as America’s favorite storyteller. Filled with intrigue, suspense, and plot twists, it is the story of the elusive search for justice in a small Southern town. Page 6 / Directions in Sound / February 2014

Ken Howard/Metropolitan Opera

Drama Queen

Johan Reuter as Barak and Christine Goerke as the Dyer’s Wife in Die Frau ohne Schatten

Christine Goerke, returning to the Metropolitan Opera in Die Frau ohne Schatten, talks to the Met’s Philipp Brieler about taking on some of the most challenging dramatic soprano roles in the repetorire. The Dyer’s Wife in Strauss’s Die Frau ohne Schatten is often mentioned together with roles like Elektra or Brünnhilde—both of which you’ve sung—as one of the pinnacles of the soprano repertoire. What makes her so challenging? Challenging is a very good way to put it! The writing of the vocal line is often angular and the range spans two and
a half octaves. I can’t help but giggle when I see an F below the staff written into the part. Not many soprano roles allow you to sing that low. Add to that the fact that the Dyer’s Wife is, to say the least, a difficult character to add dimension to. She’s not incredibly likable, and the fact that her husband is the nicest man in all of opera doesn’t help. What attracts you to the role—musically and dramatically? Really, everything. Strauss’s writing is so brilliant, it makes her transformation, her journey, so clear just by listening to the music. It gives the singer an opportunity (and dares us!) to do everything—vocal fireworks and an incredible legato line. You have an opportunity to sing with a giant orchestra, and then at the next moment he scales it back to nothing. As far as the character herself, the first time I saw the piece, I thought, “Wow, she’s really a witch!” When I finally took on the role, I knew that I had to find out why she is the way she is, what causes her to be so on edge and so awful. I think that she is terrified of having children because she will lose a chance at the life she thought she wanted. I think it’s a common thing that women go through when we have

children. I remember when I found that I was pregnant with my first child, I was so incredibly overjoyed, but I was also completely terrified. How would I live my life? We are very afraid of taking the initial step forward, but once we do, we see how much we have to gain, and how little to lose. The Empress is the opera’s title character, but Barak and his wife are really at the center of the story. How would you describe their relationship? Tense! Barak is such a good and patient man. He loves his wife and sees in her things that no one else can see. He sees the conflict and fear in her, he sees the goodness, he sees, or wants to see, a maternal instinct. It’s what we all hope for in a spouse. Even though the Dyer’s Wife lashes out at Barak rather relentlessly throughout the first two thirds of the opera, she does love him. Her fear drives her further
and further from him, until she finally realizes that she has everything she could possibly need or want right in front of her. I know a few couples like this! Hofmannsthal’s story is famously symbolic and can be hard to get into for a first-time audience. In two sentences—what is the opera about? If you take away all of the symbolism, you’ll find that it’s about love, sacrifice, strength, trials, loyalty, and fear. You sang a lot at the Met early in your career but recently we haven’t heard from you that much. How does it feel to be back? This house will always feel like “home”
to me. I am a native New Yorker—well, a native Long Islander—and it was the house where I saw some of my first operas. I sang quite a bit here when I was younger and my voice was still growing. All signs pointed to the dramatic repertoire, but that type of voice often takes time to “cook,” as it were. There’s an entire new repertoire to learn, gigantic sings, gigantic orchestrations. Sometimes it’s best not to do these roles for the first time in a house that seats four thousand Are there new roles you’re working on? I am going to be involved in a few Ring cycles as Wotan’s most headstrong girl in the next few seasons, the first being at Houston Grand Opera, with Maestro Patrick Summers.

The Limestone Legacy Society WFIU depends upon regular membership contributions for its existence. But in the long run our future will depend more and more on individuals who have named WTIU in their will, living trust, life insurance, or retirement plan. To recognize those who have left a legacy gift, we’ve created the Limestone Legacy Society. The Limestone Legacy Society is made up of community members who have included us in their estate planning, and have given us permission to publicly acknowledge their support. Legacy gifts come in a wide range of levels and vehicles— from a $1,000 bequest in a will to a seven-figure life insurance policy or retirement plan beneficiary. You can make an “unrestricted” gift intended to help the station achieve its everyday goals, or you could add to our existing endowment funds supporting news, jazz, or classical music. (Learn more at WFIU.org/support.) This approach to a gift allows you to make a lasting contribution without affecting your current financial security and freedom. Benefits of membership in the Limestone Legacy Society include invitations to special events, recognition in station publications if desired, and a special thank you lunch from our general manager. If you decide to include a planned gift to WFIU, we encourage you to let us know about your decision. Notifying WFIU of your intent will allow us to work with you to complete a gift agreement, ensure that there are no questions as to how your gift will be used, and allow us to recognize your generosity, and include you in our recognition program, if you wish. If you need help contact Nancy Krueger, Gifts and Grants Officer at 812-855-2935 or at nkrueger@ indiana.edu, or consult with your attorney.

The Amish Shunned: AMERICAN EXPERIENCE Tuesday, February 4, 9 p.m. Follow seven former members of an Amish community as they reflect on their decisions to leave one of the most closed and tightly knit communities in the United States.

Alice Walker

Born into a family of sharecroppers in rural Georgia, author Alice Walker came of age during the racism and seismic social changes of the mid-20th century. Her influences—which include her mother, poverty, and participation in the civil rights movement—formed her thinking and became the inherent themes in her writing. NOVA: Great Cathedral Mystery Wednesday, February 15, 9 p.m. The dome that crowns Florence’s great cathedral is a masterpiece of Renaissance ingenuity and an enduring source of mystery. Experts have long debated how its architect kept the dome perfectly aligned and symmetrical as the sides rose and converged toward the center. To test the latest theories, a team will build an experimental “mini-Duomo” using period tools and techniques. FRONTLINE: Secrets of the Vatican Tuesday, February 25, 9 p.m. Go inside the Vatican to unravel the remarkable series of events that led to the resignation that shook the world, through interviews with those at the very heart of what happened. This special gives a first-hand account of the final days of Benedict’s papacy and the current battle to set the church on a new path under Francis.
