Second segment: Tradition is the Last Bad Performance
Oregon Coast Music Association in partnership with the Coos Bay Public Library Foundation provides the second in a series of podcasts featuring Associate Conductor, Adam Stern. This segment of Listen and Learn with Adam Stern features the good and poor interpretations by conductors of classical music compositions.  "Tradition is the Last Bad Performance" The quote cited above (courtesy of Arturo Toscanini) could be applied to many "traditional" interpretive stances taken by conductors. Some of the world's most beloved symphonic works have been encrusted with whimsical notions that are nowhere to be found in the composers' instructions. Tune in as we remove the tarnish from some masterpieces and let their original shine come through.

First segment: Music - A World of Codes and Messages
Music: A World of Codes and Messages.  Although a composer's "alphabet" — twelve notes — may seem limited, the information that can be conveyed through these sounds is limitless. Composers can express love, hate, nostalgia, and (in the case of music for theater and films) even tip off major aspects of the story to come. Be prepared to have some buried secrets divulged!
