Arts and Music airing this week

Screenwriter Mardik Martin, and the producer of "Baghdad to Hollywood," Ramy Katrib explore Martin Scorsese's film "Mean Streets," one of the pivotal films of the 1970s. Mardik co-wrote the screenplay with Scorsese and is in the elite group of screenwriters on WGA's list of the 101 Greatest Screenplays ever written.

The Quintet in E-flat Major amply supports the contention that Mozart wrote superbly for wind instruments. Composing for an unusual combination of instruments, Mozart speaks directly to the character of each; the short and often rapid phrases for oboe, clarinet, bassoon, & horn are beautifully supported by the piano's rippling, fluid lines. This piece is not about virtuosity, but about musicians putting themselves at the service of the music. Recorded on 11/22/2017.

Jazz has been hailed as "America's original art form," and the annual Jazz Camp at UC San Diego is a five-day immersive summer program designed for intermediate to advanced level jazz musicians, ages 14–adult. Students work directly with internationally renowned jazz artists, exploring styles ranging from classic bebop to contemporary open-form. The Camp culminates in a finale concert performed by eight student ensembles, each under the direction of a faculty member. This program showcases an ensemble mentored by bassist Mark Dresser. Recorded on 06/29/2018.

The Beatles' final concert, their late-era conflicts, and the complicated history of director Michael Lindsay-Hogg's Let It Be documentary all arise in this discussion between musician Alan Parsons and Music Professor David Novak (UC Santa Barbara). Parsons was a teenage sound engineer at Abbey Road studios when he was assigned to record audio for the Beatles as they worked through this iconic album. Novak draws Parsons into dialogue about recording equipment, studio layouts, and the musical personalities of each member of the band. Recorded on 01/25/2019.

In this fun and informative program Conductor Steven Schick guides the audience through excerpts from Béla Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra and Florence Price's Violin Concerto No.1 as well as the complete William Tell Overture by Rossini. Schick places particular emphasis on the orchestra's organization and how the various sections interact with each other, with each of the musical selections serving as examples. He also invites questions from the audience. Recorded on 11/01/2019.

Steven Schick conducts the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus in their first concert of the 2019/2020 season combines the popular and the unfamiliar. First up is Giachino Rossini's "Overture to William Tell," a perennial concert favorite with deep roots in pop culture. Next is Florence Price's "Violin Concerto No. 2," a lyrical piece forgotten for seventy years until its chance rediscovery in 2009. The concert concludes with Béla Bartók's dazzling "Concerto for Orchestra," one of that composer's most popular and accessible works. Recorded on 11/03/2019.

Adventurous programming is a signature trait of La Jolla Symphony and this concert is no exception, featuring a newly commissioned work along with two popular favorites. Nee Commission recipient Celeste Oram's "a loose affiliation
of alleluias" is an ambitious concerto for violin and three voices. Robert Schumann's "Violin Concerto" features virtuoso violinist Keir GoGwilt in one of that composer's most adventurous and popular pieces. Finally there's John Adams' "Harmonium," the large-scale work for orchestra and chorus which signaled the arrival of a major new talent. Recorded on 12/08/2019.
