The final moments of Wagner’s Götterdämmerung is an epic cataclysm that pulls together a multitude of dramatic, musical, and narrative strands developed over the course of four operas and nearly seventeen hours. The Met Opera production, broadcast on WFIU Saturday, February 11th at 12 p.m., creates a vivid human world, explains director Robert Lepage. “Götterdämmerung is the only opera in the Ring that has a chorus. A chorus is always about society. It’s about mankind. Before that, you have a kind of hierarchy among gods who represent elements or emotions or ideas. But now, in Götterdämmerung, we’ve arrived in the real world, where the idea of the divine has been pushed back onto altars. Gods are not present anymore: they’re statues, superstitions.” The opera deals specifically with its human characters. Siegfried and Brünnhilde begin this final part of their story reveling in their love, but their relationship is polluted by their contact with human society, which is new for both of them. “I feel like Siegfried’s innocence is still intact because he is not a willing participant in the betrayal of Brünnhilde,” says tenor Jay Hunter Morris, referring to the potion his character is given to make him forget Brünnhilde. Its effect wears off before Siegfried dies, stabbed in the back by the treacherous Hagen. For Deborah Voigt, who plays Brünnhilde, the idea of transformation and renewal applies to her character in very human terms. “Brünnhilde develops from a rather carefree, high-spirited teenager, indulged by her beloved father, into the fully developed, seasoned-by-experience, all-knowing woman we see at the end of Götterdämmerung,” the soprano says. The characters, in other words, transform to become more authentically themselves. Director Lepage agrees that Brünnhilde’s emotional growth is central to the Ring, as is Siegfried’s. “These roles are sung by mature singers, and they’re often depicted as very strong heroes, Jay Hunter Morris and Deborah Voigt but they’re teenagers basically. Their emotions are the emotions of teenagers who are discovering love, their bodies, their identities, their goals. And we all identify with that. At one point in our lives, we all have had that conflict: I follow the person I respect the most, my mentor, my father, my teacher, but I also have to betray him if I want to be faithful to who I am becoming.” Photo: Ken Howard/Metropolitan Opera

School of Music.

Marietta Simpson

A mezzo-soprano, Simpson has sung with major orchestras throughout the United States, under many of the world’s greatest conductors, including the late Robert Shaw in her Carnegie Hall debut in 1988 as soloist in Brahms’ Alto Rhapsody with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. She grew up in Philadelphia and received her master’s degree in music from the State University of New York at Binghamton. Simpson sang the role of Maria in Porgy and Bess with the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Los Angeles Opera, Opera Birmingham and Washington National Opera. She is also known for her performances of new operas including the world premiere of Peter Eötvös’s opera, Love and Other Demons, with Glyndebourne Festival Opera. She sang the world premiere The Thread, composed by J. Mark Scearce to text by Toni Morrison, with the Nashville Chamber Orchestra under its music director, Paul Gambil. Her oratorio and concert performances range widely from Bach’s Christmas Oratorio to contemporary works such as Donald McCullough’s Let My People Go, a choral work that integrates AfricanAmerican spirituals and code songs around a narrative text. She made her New York Philharmonic debut under Kurt Masur in Mendelssohn’s Elijah. This was followed by performances, also under Masur, of Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis and Symphony No. 9, and Bach’s St. John Passion. WFIU will feature music performed by Marietta Simpson throughout the month of February.

WFIU’s featured contemporary composer for February is Barbara Harbach. Harbach is a composer, harpsichordist, and organist who completed her doctoral work at the Eastman School of Music and is now a professor of music at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. Her compositions include works for symphony orchestra, string orchestra, organ, harpsichord, choir and chamber ensemble, and has arranged Baroque pieces for brass and organ. She has written two symphonies: Veneration for Orchestra and One of Ours—A Cather Symphony; a musical, Booth!; and the opera O Pioneers!

Barbara Harbach

Harbach has given organ and harpsichord recitals in North America, Asia, Europe and Siberia, and she has made numerous recordings of organ and harpsichord music. The American Record Guide wrote, “She deserves to be recognized as one of the eminent Bach players among organists of the present day, in both the United States and in Europe.” She is involved in the research, publication, and recording of manuscripts of 18th-century keyboard composers as well as historical and contemporary women composers. Harbach is the editor of Women of Note Quarterly, and she founded Vivace Press, a music publishing company specializing in works by women and other traditionally under-represented composers. WFIU will feature music by Barbara Harbach throughout the month of February.

Maya Angelou’s Black History Month Special Monday, February 6, 7 p.m. Global renaissance woman Maya Angelou—poet, memoirist, novelist, educator, dramatist, producer, actress, historian, filmmaker, and civil rights activist—celebrates Black History Month in this special. It features discussions on the politics, music, education and poetry of the civil rights movement. This historical trek takes us from the 1950s to the 1990s, portraying the day-today lives of African Americans during the civil rights era—when artists and activists, musicians and ministers joined hands with people from all walks of life to bring about a historic change in our culture. Participants in the program include: Congressman John Lewis, Presidential Medal of Freedom 2011 recipient, shares some of his experiences during the Freedom Rides of 1961 and the civil rights era. Nikky Finney, winner of the 2011 National Congressman John Lewis Book Award for Poetry, discusses her acceptance speech and shares stories of growing up in a civil rights family, as she talks about how her work was affected by the era. Singer and songwriter Mary J. Blige, who will play Nina Simone in an upcoming film, discusses her fiveyear preparation for the role aimed at encouraging and educating a new generation on the life and times of the singer and civil rights activist. Economist and Bennett College President Dr. Julianne Malveaux discusses the effect of the civil rights movement on education and economics, and how knowledge has begun to translate into a new prosperity with continued challenges. Ambassador Andrew Young talks about his relationship with Martin Luther King and the fight for equality during a time when separate but equal was not enough.

The Eighty-Dollar Champion by Elizabeth Letts Airs January 23 to February 24 November 1958: the National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Into the rarefied atmosphere of wealth and tradition comes the most unlikely of horses—a drab white former plow horse—and his rider, Harry de Leyer. They were the longest of all long shots— and their win was the stuff of legend. Harry de Leyer first saw the horse he later named Snowman on a bleak winter afternoon between the slats of a rickety truck bound for the slaughterhouse. He recognized the spark in the eye of the beaten-up horse and bought him for eighty dollars. On de Leyer’s modest farm on Long Island, the horse thrived. But the recent Dutch immigrant and his growing family needed money, so he reluctantly sold Snowman to a farm a few miles down the road. But Snowman has other ideas. When the horse turned up back at his barn, dragging an old tire and a broken fence board, the man knew that he had misjudged the horse. And so he set about teaching this shaggy, easygoing horse how to fly. One show at a time, against extraordinary odds and some of the most expensive thoroughbreds alive, the pair climbed to the very top of the sport of show jumping. Here is the dramatic and inspiring rise to stardom of an unlikely duo. It’s a story of unstoppable hope, inconceivable dreams, and the chance to have it all. The message is simple: Never give up, even when the obstacles seem sky high. February 2012 / Directions in Sound / Page 5

The Moth Radio WFIU Highlights Hour and Radiolab this Month Sundays at 11 a.m. The Moth Radio Hour presents true stories told live on stage without scripts, notes, props, or accompaniment. Some stories are emotionally intense and not for children. February 5 Double amputee Aimee Mullins chronicles her adventures as an athlete, actress, and artist; the mother of a bullied teen tells the story of his suicide; ex-New York City Mayor Ed Koch stands up to his antiSemitic platoon leader while in training for WWII; and three teenagers from Grace King High School in New Orleans share their stories on the theme of prejudice and power.

Aimee Mullins discusses her remarkable life on the Sunday, February 5th episode of The Moth Radio Hour. Born without fibula bones, Mullins had both of her legs amputated below the knee when she was a year old. She has competed in NCAA Division I track and field events, worked as an intelligence analyst at the Pentagon, and acted in such movies as World Trade Center. On the Friday, February 10th edition of Jazz Inspired, host Judy Carmichael speaks with Axel Zwingenberger, German pianist of old-style blues whom British critics call “Boogie-meister of the world,” and with his performing partner, Minneapolis opera singer Lila Ammons, granddaughter of the American pianist Albert Ammons.

Gretchen Frazee is WFIU/WTIU’s New News Producer/Director Gretchen Frazee is the newest producer/ director in WFIU and WTIU’s news department. Among other duties, she will be producing WTIU’s monthly public affairs show IN Focus.

The Moth’s founder, George Dawes Green, details the fireworks when his mother learns that her family plantation is slated to be turned into a theme park; a spectacularly eccentric mother and Savannah, Georgia work in tandem to create a true bohemian; and a guard at Sing Sing is intrigued by a prisoner’s mysterious tattoo. Radiolab February 19 “The Good Show” In this episode, a question that haunted Darwin: If natural selection boils down to survival of the fittest, why would one creature stick its neck out to help another? Is altruism an aberration, or just an elaborate guise for sneaky self-interest? February 26 “Lost and Found” Stories about getting lost that ask how our brains and our hearts help us get home. We meet a woman who has spent her entire life getting lost, and go to a military base in New Jersey to learn about some amazing feats of navigational wizardry. Finally we turn to a love story about running into a terrifying, and unexpected, fork in the road.

Harmonia on February 12th includes a look at the glamorous, emotive Catalan soprano Montserrat Figueras. Through her worldwide concerts and on dozens of definitive recordings, she helped revitalize the performance of early music and bring back to life a largely forgotten repertory. New Hampshire singer-songwriter Kyle Anne Carey visits with Bryan Kelso Crow on the February 18th installment of Celtic Connections to discuss her latest Kyle Anne Carey CD, Monongah. Recorded in Ireland, the CD blends Appalachian, light gospel, and Celtic folk sounds. Kyle Carey spent her childhood in the Alaskan Bush, immersed in the Yupik language and its songs, where she developed sensitivity to language that helped her in her study of Gaelic language and song.

Perhaps you’ve heard WFIU’s Day of Dedication announcements recognizing an anniversary, historical event, or a passing during the broadcast day. Now, you can take WFIU’s Day of Dedication a step farther, by endowing a Day of Dedication past your lifetime. You might choose to celebrate the life of a child or grandchild, pay tribute to an important anniversary date, or honor the life of a loved one with a memorial. The Endow-a-Day program creates a permanent day of dedication. For a $10,000 endowment gift, you may sponsor a full day of programming with seven announcements during your selected broadcast day each year in perpetuity. Securing your Day may be done with a gift of cash or securities, and may be pledged over a period of up to five years, if desired. What is an endowment and how does it grow? Endowments are funds of $10,000 or more that are invested and act as a source of continuous funding. The invested endowment capital generates interest income, a portion of which is expended yearly while the remainder interest is reinvested. This allows the principal to grow and the endowment to generate increasing yields over time. How will my Endow-a-Day fund be used? As the donor, you may specify that the interest from your Endowa-Day fund be used to support a programming genre such as classical music, jazz, or opera; the WFIU Arts Desk, or news and public affairs. Or you may allow WFIU to use the annual interest as unrestricted funds for the station, as needed. Contact Nancy Krueger at 812855-2935 or nkrueger@indiana. edu with any questions about giving opportunities at WFIU. Page 14 / Directions in Sound / February 2012

President William J. Clinton

Clinton: American Experience explores the story of an American president who rose from a broken childhood in Arkansas to become one of the most successful politicians in modern American history and one of the most conflicted characters ever to stride across the public stage. It recounts a career full of accomplishment and rife with scandal, a marriage that made history and created controversy, and a presidency that defined the transformative period between the fall of the Berlin Wall and the September 11th attacks. The documentary follows Clinton across his two terms as he confronted key forces that shaped the future, including partisan political warfare and domestic and international terrorism. It shows how he struggled, with uneven success, to define the role of American power in a post-Cold War world. Most memorably, it explores how Clinton’s complex character made history, even as it enraged his enemies and confounded his friends. The program features unprecedented access to scores of Clinton insiders, including White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers, White House Counsel Bernard Nussbaum, White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta and Deputy Chief of Staff Harold Ickes, as well as interviews with foreign leaders, members of the Republican opposition, childhood friends, staffers from Clinton’s years as governor of Arkansas, biographers, and journalists.
