We start this week with some wonderful music - Silvestre Revueltas' String Quartet No. 4, "Música de Feria (Fair Music)" (1932) and George Crumb's Vox Balaenae, Part I (1971). Please share your thoughts on theses pieces and get the dialog started!

I'd also love to hear your reactions to this week's Pytheas Sighting Der Brandstifter (The Arsonist) (2003), a film by Ütz Matthias Stocklöw with music by Arnold Schoenberg . What a wild and creapy little film . . .

  1. This is not necessarily the kind of film I would have imagined for "Begleitungsmusik zu einer Lichtspielszene," but I really enjoyed listening to the piece in some kind of film context. I always wondered what the film music that Schoenberg did for Hollywood was like, but I suppose we'll never know, right?
