The Pacifica Quartet WFIU’s Artists of the Month

Artists of the Month WFIU’s featured artists for the month of June is the Pacifica Quartet. Named Musical America’s 2009 Ensemble of the Year, the Pacifica Quartet has gained international stature as one of the finest chamber ensembles performing today. In the same year, they received a Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance for a recording of Elliott Carter string quartets. Formed in 1994, the Pacifica Quartet is known for its varied, daring repertoire and virtuosic performances. Among its many honors, the ensemble won the 1998 Naumburg Prize and was appointed quartet-in-residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, a position previously held by the Guarneri Quartet.

In March, the Pacifica Quartet was named ensemble-inresidence at IU’s Jacobs School of Music. The four members of the ensemble—Simin Ganatra and Sibbi Bernhardsson, violin; Masumi Per Rostad, viola; and Brandon Vamos, cello—will join the school’s full-time faculty, beginning in fall 2012. Jacobs School of Music Distinguished Professor Menahem Pressler described the Pacifica as “without a doubt one of the finest young quartets playing today.” “It is with great delight that I heard the wonderful news that the Pacifica Quartet has joined the faculty of the Jacobs School of Music,” he said. Lawrence Hurst, chair of the Jacobs School’s String Department, noted, “The Pacifica has everything one associates with great chamber music: artistry, passion, precision, communication, and great style. Added to these attributes is a dedication to teaching and students that is unusual among such ensembles.” The quartet has an extensive touring schedule and performs at many summer festivals, including Music in the Vineyards and Music@Menlo. Last year they presented the complete cycle of Beethoven’s string quartets at Suntory Hall in Tokyo—doing so in a series of five concerts in only three days. This spring the quartet will embark on its second European tour of the season with stops in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and Great Britain. The ensemble recently released its second CD in a four-part survey of Dmitri Shostakovich’s complete string quartets with a new album on the Cedille label that pairs the composer’s first four quartets with one by Prokofiev, The Soviet Experience Vol. II: String Quartets by Dmitri Shostakovich and his Contemporaries. WFIU will feature performances by the Pacifica Quartet during the weekday morning program Classical Music with George Walker throughout the month of June.

WFIU’s featured contemporary composer for the month of June is Steven Mackey. Mackey received his musical training at the University of California at Davis, the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and Brandeis University. He credits his experience playing electric guitar and Renaissance lute as inspiration for his musical compositions. A professor of music at Princeton University where he has been a member of the faculty since 1985, Mackey teaches composition, theory, 20th century music, and improvisation. Mackey has performed his own works for electric guitar with the Kronos Quartet, Arditti Quartet, and the London Sinfonietta and under such conductors as Michael Tilson Thomas, Peter Eötvös, and Dennis Russell Davies.

Steven Mackey

He has received commissions from many ensembles, including the Chicago Symphony, Dutch Radio Symphony, Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Borromeo String Quartet, and the PRISM Saxophone Quartet. Many of Mackey’s works incorporate theatrical elements, such as his musical theater piece SLIDE with the ensemble eighth blackbird, singer and actor Rinde Eckert, and Mackey narrating and playing guitar. Steven Mackey’s works can be heard on the Bridge, BMG-RCA, Albany, New World, and CRI labels, among others. On the BMOP label Mackey’s oratorio Dreamhouse, for amplified vocal ensemble, electric guitar quartet, and orchestra, was nominated for four Grammy awards for 2010. WFIU will feature compositions by Steven Mackey throughout the month of June.

Dick Bishop

Dick Bishop is Back! After a seven-year absence, veteran jazz producer Dick Bishop is returning to WFIU with a new 13-week program. Longtime listeners know Dick as the station’s founding father of jazz. Beginning in the late 1950s, he presented jazz on WFIU for nearly half a century, winning a wide following in the south-central Indiana community. Dick’s most popular and long-running program was Afterglow. He took the title of the show and his theme from a Marian McPartland composition; all of the rest— the elegance, the passion, the laid-back expertise, the congenial charm, and the delivery with a “martini moon” quality to it—came from Dick himself. In addition to his considerable knowledge and love for the jazz and American popular song that he played every Friday evening, Dick also drew on his personal relationships and encounters with many of the performers that he featured. He signed off on his last Afterglow program in 2005, turning the show over to David Brent Johnson. Now Dick returns to the airwaves with a new program, Standards By Starlight, emphasizing the classic composers and performers of the Great American Songbook. It airs Fridays from 9 to 10 p.m. just before Afterglow, beginning June 1. So, why did Dick come out of retirement? “American popular song is becoming a rarity on the airwaves,” he says. “Not at WFIU; we’ve done a great job of keeping it

Greensburg 98.9 fm • Kokomo 106.1 fm • Terre Haute 95.1 fm

alive. But in general, you hardly ever hear it on the radio these days. And yet it’s so timeless . . . songs that speak of the same kind of emotional ups and downs and the human experience, and they were written many decades ago.” Standards By Starlight will spotlight “the classic composers: Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer . . . the classics of American popular song, performed by people like Stan Getz, Ella Fitzgerald, and Frank Sinatra.” According to Bishop, his new show will be “more ballad-driven and less jazz-driven” than his vintage Afterglow program. He also feels that it will be a good lead-in for the current Afterglow, which continues to air at 10 p.m. on Fridays. “I have enormous respect for what David has done with Afterglow,” he says. “And in order to be a little bit different, I’ll play singers like Vic Damone and Jack Jones that you probably won’t hear on Afterglow, and that I stayed away from when I was hosting the show myself.” Standards By Starlight has already gotten one key blessing, from the person who wrote its theme song (“Twilight World”): pianist and longtime Bishop friend Marian McPartland. “When I told her I was quitting Afterglow a few years back, she wrote me and said, ‘Darling, as Duke Ellington once said, retire to what?’” Bishop says, laughing. “So maybe you can go home again.” June 2012 / Directions in Sound / Page 3

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 on our Web site ( under the Podcasts link.

Her followup Overheard stays in the same territory, but expands to feature music for the English horn as well. Composers on the album include Alyssa Morris, Erin Goad, Gilles, Silvestrini, and Susan Kander. June 11–17 Les grâces françoises: Music of the French Baroque (MSR Classics MS 1396) Les grâces By the beginning of the 18th century, sonatas and cantatas were so omnipresent in France that one Parisian writer declared in 1715, “Cantatas and sonatas are born here beneath one’s feet. A musician does not arrive anymore without the one or the other in his pocket.” In this recording by the Baroque ensemble Les grâces, these forms are explored along with notions of musical grace.

Voyagers of the Titanic by Richard Davenport-Hines Airs: June 14 to July 12 Most of us know about the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 and the loss of more than 1,500 lives. But while many accounts of the Titanic’s voyage concentrate on the technical aspects of the disaster, Voyagers of the Titanic follows the stories of the men, women, and children whose lives intersected on the vessel’s fateful last day. It covers the range of first, second, and third class—from plutocrats and captains of industry to cobblers and tailors looking for a better life in America. The acclaimed biographer Richard Davenport-Hines delves into the fascinating lives of those who died aboard the mythic ship, such as John Jacob Astor IV, the wealthiest person on board, whose comportment that night was subject to speculation and gossip for years after the event; and Archibald Butt, the much-beloved military aide to Theodore Roosevelt and William Taft, who died helping others into the Titanic’s few lifeboats. The book also brings to life the untold stories of the clergymen, teachers, hoteliers, engineers, shopkeepers, and clerks—each with a story that both illuminates the fascinating ship as well as the times in which it sailed. Davenport-Hines also explores the politics behind the Titanic’s creation, which involved larger-than-life figures such as J. P. Morgan, the ship’s owner, and Lord Pirrie, the ship’s builder. The memory of this tragedy remains a part of the American psyche and Voyagers of the Titanic brings that clear night back to us with all of its drama and pathos.

A Year of StateImpact

Bill Kroll Remembered

StateImpact Indiana, the collaboration between Indiana Public Broadcasting Stations and NPR, is seeing its first year moving rapidly to a close. What a year it’s been! Since last June, our StateImpact reporters, working from the WFIU newsroom in Bloomington, have roamed the state to bring Indiana and the nation stories about how educationrelated decisions made in the Capitol affect day-to-day life in the classroom. Our stories have aired on WFIU, public radio stations around the state, and periodically on NPR stations across the country during programs such as Morning Edition. Our stories and daily blog posts, created by our reporters but hosted within NPR’s Web site, have been seen by more than 125,000 different people.

WFIU staff members note with sadness the passing of William “Bill” Kroll, who began as an engineer and rose through the ranks to direct the entire broadcasting enterprise of Radio and Television Services at Indiana University, which includes WFIU and WTIU. He was 86. Kroll oversaw the creation of Indiana University’s Radio and Television academic department (now Telecommunications), and he guided the department’s growth to national stature. Kroll’s 36-year career at IU began in 1955, when he came to IU to pursue a degree in instructional film (“audio visual,” as it was commonly known). A strong work ethic took him from Bill Kroll posts as a lecturer and film supervisor, technical supervisor of the broadcasting services, operations supervisor, a tenured professor in Telecommunications, deputy director, and finally to the executive director position of the Indiana University Radio and Television Services and general manager of WFIU and WTIU. In the 1960s Bill oversaw the construction of the Radio/ TV Building with the largest TV studio between the East and West Coasts. In the late 1970s, he shared his expertise with the international media community, doing film work in Tunisia, consulting in Chile, and co-directing the design of a national educational technology program in Saudi Arabia. Bill contributed to more than twenty television series and individual programs that aired in Bloomington, statewide, and nationally on public television. Among those was Doc: The Oldest Man in the Sea, a 1980 documentary about IU swim coach James (“Doc”) Counsilman’s record-breaking English Channel swim. After his retirement in 1991, Bill continued to enjoy the friendship and respect of many who continue to work here. Known for his unfailing optimism and good humor, in recent years he had been a loyal volunteer for the Membership Department. Suzann Owen, former public information director of WTIU, recalls how Bill returned to the Radio-TV building after he retired. “He helped with the monthly mailings of the WFIU and WTIU program guides, paperwork during Fund Drives, and generally was a helpful and supportive person,” Owen says. “When he entered the building, however, his first stop was generally to the Engineering department, where he talked shop with the engineers about the latest equipment they were using. He could never get far from his roots and his passion.” Bill was a mentor and friend to many who continued on to careers in broadcasting, and Radio-TV Services has received numerous donations in his memory. He will be greatly missed.

Some highlights: • More than 10,000 visitors have seen the Web post for the StateImpact report, “How YouTube Is Changing the Classroom.” This report engaged visitors to the StateImpact blog in a substantial discussion about using technology to create new ways of learning, and whether the state should be involved in promoting these methods. • Also seen close to 10,000 times: an interactive map titled “Where Are All of the Graduates Going? Brain Drain in Indiana.” Our StateImpact team, working with NPR staff, delivered a visually striking map that lets users view higher education and student retention by county. • StateImpact Indiana created a sortable database for the blog post “Are Indiana’s ‘Rich’ School Districts Getting Richer?” that examined the history of referendums, sortable by income, home value, and enrollment.

Adam Schwartz

• StateImpact has engaged listeners and Web visitors by finding education angles on the stories many people are talking about. One piece, “The Indiana Schools a Supercommittee Failure Could Hurt Most,” came at the height of coverage of the Congressional budget “supercommittee,” but focused on the aspect of education funding. The post reaped hundreds of “Likes” and comments from Facebook users. With a new StateImpact reporter, Elle Moxley, on StateImpact reporters Elle Moxley and Kyle Stokes board to augment the in the Indiana Public Media news bureau work of Kyle Stokes, we’re looking forward to another fruitful year of discussing, in-depth and across multiple media, the stories that take place between the Statehouse and the schoolhouse.

WFIU Recognized for Journalistic Excellence

This month on WTIU television.


The Indiana chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists gave WFIU and WTIU twelve awards in their 2012 Best in Indiana Journalism competition. The awards were given at the 33rd annual awards banquet in Indianapolis.

Kyle Stokes

Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and his son Yeshi

Troy Cockrum, a middle school English teacher at St. Thomas Aquinas in Indianapolis, talks with students as they write papers on their school-owned laptops. Cockrum was featured in WFIU reporter Kyle Stokes’ award-winning report on “flipped” classrooms.

WFIU News Director Stan Jastrzebski was awarded first place in the Best Feature category for “Legislative Comedy.” The report focused on the lighthearted tone of the first few weeks of the Indiana House of Representatives’ 2011 legislative session, which saw an unusual amount of comedic banter on the floor of the House. The WFIU News Department won second place in the Best Documentary or Special category for its series of reports called “How 9/11 Shaped Indiana.” Broadcast ten years after the September 11 attacks on the Pentagon, United Airlines Flight 93, and the World Trade Center in New York, the series reported on how our world and daily lives have changed since then. WFIU reporter Kyle Stokes received a second place award in the Best Education Coverage category for his report on “flipped classrooms,” that studied teachers who replace inclass lectures with short online videos that students watch at home. The flip-flop of homework and lecture leaves class time open for students to complete their assignments, with their teacher standing by to offer one-on-one help.

POV: My Reincarnation Thursday, June 21, 10 p.m. My Reincarnation tells the story of Tibetan-trained Buddhist master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and his Italian-born son who refuses to accept the destiny he inherited from birth. Filmed over twenty years in seventeen countries, the documentary follows Namkhai Norbu’s rise as a Buddhist teacher in the West, while his son, Yeshi— recognized at birth as the reincarnation of a famous spiritual master—breaks away from his father’s tradition to embrace the modern world. Norbu feels responsible for keeping an ancient spiritual and cultural tradition alive in the face of a 50-year long diaspora that threatens Tibetan identity. Along with the Tibetan Buddhist community, he is convinced Yeshi is the reincarnation of his own master and destined to take up the teaching. Yeshi, however, was raised in Italy and feels and looks more like an upand-coming young businessman than anybody’s spiritual master. Yet he can’t quite turn away from his father’s legacy. My Reincarnation is also an intimate account of Norbu’s life and work. Fleeing Tibet in 1959 in the wake of the Chinese takeover, he settled in Italy, married an Italian woman, had two children and began the work that brought him worldwide recognition as a spiritual master and scholar. The film shows 20 years of constant travel as he lectures, counsels, and leads ritual Buddhist observances. Over the years he appears to take on extra burdens—for the hopes, fears and challenges of Tibetans scattered in foreign lands, and for the survival of Tibetan Buddhism itself.
