Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson would be happy if everyone grew up with “a deep appreciation for his or her place in the cosmos.” And if the Nova scienceNow host’s infectious passion for science has anything to do with it, everyone will. An extraordinary thinker and communicator, Neil shatters any stereotypes you might harbor about geeky scientists. The director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History in New York (one of my favorite Upper West Side haunts), Neil has the rare ability to make science exciting, accessible…and fun. Each week, he and his team of Nova scienceNow correspondents find creative and entertaining ways to bring PBS viewers magazine-style reports on the biggest breakthroughs and most compelling personalities in science today. This month, Nova scienceNow begins its fourth WGBH-produced season with stories from the frontiers of science and technology that aren’t covered elsewhere—including segments on hidden planets, synthetic diamonds, and the controversial computer “pitch-correction” software that turns sour notes into sweet ones (see page 18). “In an era when scientific innovations often resonate on a global scale and rapidly change the way we live,” says Paula S. Apsell, director of the WGBH Science Unit and senior executive producer of Nova and Nova scienceNow, “Neil is there to inform and inspire viewers about these discoveries and explore the connections between science and their daily lives.” Our broadcasts and websites are only the beginning of the science conversation. Out in the community, Science Café gatherings (600 in 30 states last year!) take Nova scienceNow on the road to local pubs and coffeehouses where enthusiasts connect with celebrated scientists (sciencecafes.org). From creating Nova in 1974…to helping science come alive for kids with series like Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman, Curious George, and Design Squad… to bringing science to lifelong learners with our Forum Network (forum-network.org; see below), promoting science literacy is one of WGBH’s core missions. “Gone are the days when a science show on TV was the equivalent of castor oil,” writes one reviewer. “Nova scienceNow is more like a tall glass of really good lemonade.” We couldn’t agree more. Happy science, and happy summer! Jon Abbott

Don’t miss some of the finest works from the golden age of Dutch painting. Created by master artists during the height of Dutch power as a trading nation, these luminous seascapes introduced the world to a new source of inspiration — the drama, tranquility and romance of land and sea.

This exhibition was organized by the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, England, where it appeared under the title Turmoil and Tranquillity. This exhibition is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities, with additional support provided by ECHO (Education through Cultural and Historical Organizations). The public conservation project and related video were made possible through a generous grant from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.

WCAI’s Summer of Science Whether you’re lucky enough to live on the Cape and Islands year-round or are a seasonal visitor, WCAI, WGBH’s Cape and Islands NPR® station, keeps you in the loop with all your favorite national news programs—The World, Morning Edition and All Things Considered. WCAI combines these with local programs that capture the region’s unique sounds and stories, from ornithologist Vernon Laux’s weekly Bird News vignettes to The Point with Mindy Todd, which recently won a 2009 Massachusetts AP Award in the Public Service category (for complete schedule, see page 28). With offices on Water Street in Woods Hole, WCAI rubs shoulders with world-class scientific institutions like the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory and Woods Hole Research Center. WCAI produces two series, Science at Work and Science Minutes, to tap into the exciting work being done just down the street.

For baseball fans: Neal Conan, host of NPR’s Talk of the Nation, calls the Cape Cod Baseball League’s All-Star Game live from Fenway Park on Thursday, 7/23 at 7pm on WCAI.

“These organizations are powerhouses in the scientific world, and are involved in cuttingedge research on topics from climate change to sustainable energy,” says series reporter and editor Heather Handley Goldstone, who herself holds a PhD in biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology-Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Joint Program in Oceanography and Applied Ocean Engineering.“With Science at Work, we’re telling the stories of the scientists who live right here in our community.” “Science often comes to us as a finished product, from somewhere ‘out there’,” adds executive producer Steve Young.“We have a terrific opportunity to show the process of science, and to put a human face on it.” This summer, Science at Work brings listeners the inside scoop on the business of being a scientist in today’s world. It’s not all discovering carnivorous sea squirts and studying coral reefs. The first few episodes explore the connections between science and society, including an insider’s view of presenting scientific testimony to Congress, and a look at a new version of Google Earth that brings ocean science to your desktop. Then the focus turns to the inner workings of science—tenure, the line between science and advocacy, and the challenge scientist couples face in finding jobs together. Science at Work’s second season begins Monday, 6/15 and runs daily through Friday, 6/26 during Morning Edition and All Things Considered. Science Minutes, 60-second snapshots that showcase the work of local scientists, complement the Science at Work stories, and will air throughout the day. Listen to Science at Work episodes online anytime after broadcast at capeandislands.org.

WCAI also launches a second season of its investigative series, Fresh Water, Salt Water this month. The series, which won a 2009 Edward R. Murrow Award for Best News Series, takes a close look at an essential part of the Cape experience: water. It kicks off with the heated topic of bycatch (the accidental catching or entanglement of species other than the target species), which pits New England fishermen against each other—groundfishermen claim that trawlers are destroying the groundfish fisheries, and trawlers fight against being banned from groundfish waters. Fresh Water, Salt Water also explores the continuing trouble with critically endangered right whales becoming entangled in fishing lines, rising sea levels and declining fish populations due to climate change on Cape Cod, and the growing problem of pharmaceuticals in the water supply, among other topics. These episodes also will be archived online. For more local flavor, from where to find the best locally-grown food to reports on the continuing saga of the Cape Wind proposal to build 130 wind turbines in Nantucket Sound, be sure to tune in WCAI this summer! Listen to WCAI, WGBH’s Cape and Islands NPR® Station, on 90.1, 91.1, and 94.3, online at capeandislands.org and in Boston on WGBH 89.7 HD3.

Inside Early Music with Paul O’Dette To our fair city they come in June, bearing lutes and harps, recorders and harpsichords, to celebrate music from the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Baroque periods at the Boston Early Music Festival (BEMF). For nine days, the world’s greatest early music performers present a non-stop program of historical performances, concerts and educational events, including an operatic centerpiece, Monteverdi’s The Coronation of Poppea. Paul O’Dette, BEMF artistic director since 1993, is an acclaimed American lutenist, conductor, and music researcher specializing in early music, and a professor of lute and director of early music at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. O’Dette has helped define the technical and stylistic standards for modern performers of the genre. AudioFile’s Jen Goebel recently talked with O’Dette about early music, public radio and the life of a lutenist.

Q A

How did you get involved with the Boston Early Music Festival? I started performing at BEMF in 1983, and performed in every festival until 1993, when I was asked by the Board of Directors to become artistic director. It’s been a very interesting journey for me, because as a lutenist, I play mostly solo concerts or with small ensembles. As artistic director, I’m responsible for larger projects, like operas with multiple instrumentalists and singers. I love doing the festival because it allows me to explore beautiful but neglected repertoire and to introduce wonderful, unknown artists.

Q A

Why Boston?

Boston was a logical place to start an early music festival because it has a rich tradition of instrument building—great recorder, flute, harpsichord and forte-piano builders—as well as a large number of performers and a very strong audience base.

Q A

How did you become a lutenist?

My mother was an opera singer and my father was an amateur choral singer and composer, and so I sat in opera rehearsals for hours as a young boy. I started playing classical guitar, and

was drawn to 16th-century lute music. When I found a recording of the lute, and heard the colors that the instrument brought to the music, I said to my parents, “I have to find one. I have to learn how to play the lute.”

Q A

How did you find your first lute? My guitar teacher in Columbus, Ohio owned a lute that he was unable to play. So I bought his lute and his library of lute music, and realized immediately that the reason he couldn’t play it was that the strings were too high off the fingerboard. I got a local guitar builder to lower the strings, and played the lute pieces I had been playing on the guitar at my next lesson. My guitar teacher stared at me disbelievingly.

Q A

How do today’s lutes compare to period instruments? There are many excellent lute makers today, but I think the really superb instruments of the 16th and 17th centuries have not been equaled. That’s true of other instruments like violins and cellos, too. The world’s greatest violinists all want to play on 17th-century violins because that’s when the best instruments were built. Playing an original lute is an extraordinary experience—the differences lie in levels of complexity, colors and textures, and a kind of glow to the sound that is really hard to explain.

Q A

What do you like best about playing early music? You have to be a researcher, a musicologist, an archaeologist, an organologist, a historian, a linguist and a practicing musician to find out how best to play the music—it’s never boring. The music of this period is so rich, so moving and so compelling that I can’t think of anything I would rather do.

Q A

Is there a difference in performing early music and performing classical music? In the normal classical world, if you are a recitalist, you have a recital program or maybe two that you offer during the year. When you perform, that’s what you play. In the early music

world, nearly every concert we play has to be a different program because one concert presenter wants lute music from the court of Louis the XIII and the next one from early 16th-century Venice. If you’re going to play in the Hungarian Lute Festival that means finding Hungarian lute music.

Q A

What do you see as the role of public radio in the world of classical music? I’ve always thought one of the reasons that sports are so popular is that everyone knows the rules and strategies—every time there’s a pitch in the World Series, the millions of people watching are thinking along with the pitcher and batter. When most people go to classical music concerts, they have no knowledge about how the music was written, how the harmonies interact, what kinds of things to listen for—and it’s very difficult to appreciate something if you don’t really understand it. Public radio plays the kind of music that helps listeners learn. It really plays a vital role. Recordings from Boston Early Music Festivals past and present will be featured every hour on our classical programs on 89.7 during the 2009 Festival Week, June 8–14 (see page 24 or visit wgbh.org/ classical).
