Artist of the Month Featured WFIU’s featured performer for Contemporary January is Uriel Segal, principal guest conductor and adjunct senior lecturer Composer in orchestral conducting at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.

Uriel Segal

Uri Segal was born in Jerusalem in 1944. He won First Prize at the 1969 International Mitropoulos Conducting Competition in New York, and invitations to conduct several prominent American and European orchestras followed. He made his operatic conducting debut in 1973 with a performance of The Flying Dutchman at the Santa Fe Opera. This led to further opportunities to conduct operas in Italy, France, Germany, Japan, Israel, and the United States. In his career Segal has led many orchestras including the Berlin Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebouw, London Philharmonic, Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Warsaw Philharmonic, Stockholm Philharmonic, and Spanish National Orchestra. In the U.S. he has conducted the Symphony Orchestras of Chicago, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Dallas, Houston, and Rochester. He also frequently conducts the Israel Philharmonic and the Jerusalem Symphony. Segal founded and led the Century Orchestra in Osaka, Japan for eight years and still serves as their Laureate Conductor. The year 2007 marked his eighteenth and final season as music director of the renowned Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra in New York State. In February of 2009 Segal conducted the Japanese premiere of Ligeti’s opera Le Grand Macabre in Tokyo with the Tokyo Chamber Opera Theater, and he made his debut appearance in the Republic of Korea with the Bussan Philharmonic. WFIU will feature performances by Uriel Segal throughout the month of January.

WFIU’s featured contemporary composer for January is Peter Maxwell Davies. English composer Peter Maxwell Davies was born in Manchester in 1934 and began his studies at Manchester University. He then studied with Italian composer Goffredo Petrassi, a tutelage that led to Davies’ first experimentation with modern, serial music culminating in Prolation. He later studied under Earl Kim, Roger Sessions, and Milton Babbitt. Davies then turned to the works of the great English Renaissance composers such as Thomas Tallis and William Byrd for inspiration. It was his study of these composers that led to his opera Taverner, based on the life of another English Renaissance composer.

Radiolab and The Moth Radio Hour Sundays at 11 a.m. Radiolab January 1 “Zoos” Humans can stand just three feet from a ferocious animal and still be perfectly safe. We visit the zoo to learn about our need to get close to wildness, and examine where we stand in this paradox. January 8 “Sperm” Sperm carry half the genes needed for human life. We begin by asking, Why so many sperm? We turn to the animal kingdom for answers. We end with a widow struggling to keep alive some essence of her husband. The Moth Radio Hour Some stories on The Moth Radio Hour are emotionally intense and not for children. January 15

Peter Maxwell Davies

At the same time, he had co-founded the Pierrot Players with Harrison Birtwistle. Later called the Fires of London, this chamber ensemble would take up much of Davies’ composition and conducting energies, with works such as Revelation and Fall and Antechrist, until the group’s disbandment in 1987. Davies’ large output of orchestral works includes eight symphonies and thirteen concertos, as well as the popular An Orkney Wedding with Sunrise. His orchestral work Worldes Blis is widely regarded as one of the greatest orchestral works of the 1960s. Davies’ dedication to education shows in the many summer music programs with which he has worked and established, and his composition of staged works for children. Also active as a conductor, Davies has led many major orchestras in Europe and North America. WFIU will feature music composed by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies throughout the month of January.

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 Web site, wfiu.org, under the “podcasts” link. January 2–8 New Joy: Orthodox Christmas Music (Harmonia Mundi 907410) Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir Paul Hiller, director In this week that leads up to the Eastern Orthodox Christmas on January 7th, we present this collection of 19th and 20th century Orthodox music from Russia and Ukraine that celebrates the Nativity. There is also music by Tchaikovsky, Arvo Pärt, and others. January 9–15 The Spanish Masters (Zenph Studios 1001) Zuill Bailey, cello Isabel Bayrakdarian, soprano This CD is a collection of re-performances of Isaac Albéniz, Manuel de Falla, and Enrique Granados. Sourced from some of the earliest known sound recordings in history, it shows how the composers played their own pieces at the piano.

With the Liszt bicentennial still fresh in our memories, piano virtuoso Lang Lang selects some of the most famous, poetic, and virtuosic solo pieces written for the piano, including a new recording of the Piano Concerto No. 1. January 23–29 Birth of the Strings (3-CD set) (Solo Musica SM 161) Julius Berger, cello Casal Quartet Rebekka Hartmann, violin The idea behind this release is simple: Some of the oldest-known string repertory from the Baroque and Classical eras is played on some of the oldest extant instruments. Rebekka Hartmann performs on Amati and Stradivari violins and Julius Berger plays Italian Baroque ricercari on a 1566 Amati cello.

Every Day by the Sun by Dean Faulkner Wells Airs December 29 to January 20 Dean Faulkner Wells, niece of William Faulkner, is the oldest surviving Faulkner of her generation. Her memoir explores the close relationship between her uncle, William Faulkner, and her father, Dean Swift Faulkner, who was killed at age twenty-eight during an air show four months before she was born. After Dean’s tragic death, William, out of grief or guilt or love, or all three, helped raise his niece. He paid for her education, gave her away when she was married, and maintained a relationship with her throughout his life. Wells tells intimate stories about her family—in particular her uncle William, or “Pappy,” with whom she shared colorful, sometimes utterly frank, sometimes whimsical, conversations and experiences. The book recounts the story of the Faulkners of Mississippi, whose legacy includes pioneers, noble and ignoble war veterans, three never-convicted murderers, the builder of the first railroad in north Mississippi, the founding president of a bank, an FBI agent, four pilots (all brothers), and the women who shared their lives. From the 1920s to the early civil rights era, from Faulkner’s winning of the Nobel Prize in Literature to his death in 1962, Every Day by the Sun explores the changing culture and society of Oxford, Mississippi, while offering a rare glimpse of a notoriously private family and an indelible portrait of one of the twentieth century’s most celebrated writers. Dean Faulkner Wells is the author of, among other works, The Ghosts of Rowan Oak: William Faulkner’s Ghost Stories for Children. She and her husband run the Yoknapatawpha Press, a publishing house that concentrates on southern writers. January 2012 / Directions in Sound / Page 5

WFIU Highlights This Month Growing up in Brooklyn, NY, Matt Munisteri was likely the only bluegrass banjo player on the block. Now also a singer, songwriter, and prominent guitar stylist, Munisteri tours and records widely and performs with his own band, Brock Mumford. He’s Judy Carmichael’s guest on the January 6th edition of Jazz Inspired. The January 9th Chicago Symphony Orchestra broadcast features the Finnish conductor Susanna Mälkki making her debut with the CSO. Reviewing the performance, Chicago on the Aisle wrote, “Mälkki displayed an easy brilliance that bespoke intimate understanding [and] a rich technical vocabulary for putting her consistently original ideas across.” In a career spanning over fifty years, lyricist E. Y. “Yip” Harburg wrote the words to more than 600 songs, including the lyrics in the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz. Known as “Broadway’s social conscience,” Harburg wrote the 1944 stage musical E.Y. "Yip" Harburg Bloomer Girl with its prowomen’s rights and civil rights agendas, and the 1947 Finian’s Rainbow, which was anti-racist and critical of capitalism. WFIU jazz producer David Brent Johnson salutes Harburg on the January 20th installment of Afterglow. Organist, conductor, and composer David Briggs has a worldwide reputation as an innovative musician and dazzling performer. Sought after for his orchestral transcriptions and improvisation, his performances are praised for their musicality, virtuosity, and ability to excite and engage audiences of all ages. Briggs is Peter DuBois’ guest on the January 29th installment of With Heart and Voice. Composing music that combines strong rhythm, emotional power, and a strong connection with religious and social themes, Scotsman James MacMillan is one of the pre-eminent composers of his generation. His most widely-known work to date is his percussion concerto Veni, Veni, Emmanuel, which has received more than 350 performances. Marjorie Herman samples MacMillan’s music on the January 31st edition of Sounds Choral.

Topics discussed: The realization of Monteverdi’s operas; remembering Joan Sutherland Pieces include: Mozart: Rondo in A Major, K. 386 (Pascal Rogé, piano) Massenet: Le dernier sommeil de la vierge Bach: Prelude, “Allein Gott in der Höh’ sei Ehr!” Haydn: “Andante cantabile” from Quartet in F, Op. 3, No. 5

Some Enchanted Evening The Saturday, January 21st broadcast of the Met Opera is a world premiere Baroque extravaganza, The Enchanted Island. The new work places the four lovers from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream on Prospero’s island from The Tempest. It’s all set to the music of the greatest Baroque master composers, from Handel and Leclair to Vivaldi and Rameau. The all-star cast includes Joyce DiDonato and Plácido Domingo. In the 18th century, composers repurposed their own work to create fabulous theatrical evenings that showcased the greatest artists of their day. The Met is breathing new life into the pastiche form as a way to celebrate Baroque opera’s renewed popularity. Conductor William Christie calls The Enchanted Island “an enormous departure from what is generally done at the Met. Essentially, you create a new piece out of existing material.”

Joyce DiDonato as Sycorax and David Daniels as Prospero in The Enchanted Island

“I’ve done Handel opera in English,” says countertenor David Daniels, who plays Prospero, “but I’ve never done anything like this—I’m not sure if anyone has!” Librettist Jeremy Sams, who has listened to all of Handel’s forty-three operas, calls The Enchanted Island his my way of saying, “Listen to this—this is fantastic!” He hopes the opera will communicate to the audience “a sense of discovery.” “Of people coming to an island, of an audience coming to a theater, of a writer coming to a whole century of music. That idea of coming to something you thought you knew and discovering that you didn’t.” Courtesy of the Metropolitan Opera and originally published in Playbill January 2012 / Directions in Sound / Page 13


We Answer Your Questions about Leaving a Legacy by Nancy Krueger, Gifts and Grants Officer  About 85 percent of people who plan to make a gift to charity do so through their will. Below are answers to questions about the process of making a gift in your will to an organization you value—such as WFIU.

W IU This month on WTIU television.

wfiu.org

Moyers & Company

PROGRAMMING AND OPERATING SUPPORT Indiana University

Friday, January 13 and January 27, 11 p.m. Bill Moyers returns to public television this month with a new series based on the novel idea that to understand politics and democracy, as well as the game of life, “you have to take your eye off the ball.”

Must I have an estate in order to leave a gift? I’m not that rich! And what is an “estate” anyway? If you own anything that can be left to someone after your death, you have an estate. “Estate” simply describes any money or belongings you have at the time of your death.

Who can help me arrange for a gift? An attorney, accountant, financial planner, or insurance agent can help you plan your gifts and can tell you about possible tax benefits to you and your heirs. It is important that your wishes be written in a clear and legally correct fashion.   Can I leave a gift in memory of a person or for a specific purpose? Yes. A charitable memorial gift is a wonderful way to recognize someone who made a difference in your life. Consult both your advisor and the charity you are considering, for specific details on how to arrange a memorial gift. When considering the charitable organizations you may wish to include in your planning, remember that WFIU qualifies as a charitable non-profit organization through the Indiana University Foundation. For more information, contact Nancy Krueger at WFIU at 812-8552934 or nkrueger@indiana.edu.

What is a bequest? “Bequest” refers to a gift left in a will, passed on to another; something that is bequeathed, handed down to future generations.  

Bill Moyers

That was the advice given students by writer Roger Rosenblatt when he taught journalism. “He meant,” says Moyers, “that you miss some of the most important action on the field if you only follow the ball, just as you can miss the real meaning of politics if you only watch the candidates.” That approach has long marked the work of Moyers and his colleagues, who for years have empowered millions of viewers to see the world differently by looking at it through the lens of other people’s experience. “Joseph Campbell once told me that if you want to change the world,” Moyers says, “change the metaphors. If you describe our political process as ‘drowning in money,’ for example, you get closer to the truth than when you report the results of ‘the Iowa straw poll.’ Both are metaphors, but the first says it all, and the second was meaningless the moment it was over.” Whether talking to the novelist Salman Rushdie about faith and reason, the lawyers David Boies and Ted Olson about equality in marriage, or the theologian James Cone about lynching’s “strange fruit,” Moyers has demonstrated time and again how human imagination enriches our own lives and helps us understand the lives of others.
