Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
This episode begins with a poem, first published in The New Criterion, in 2002: Charles Tomlinson’s “If Bach had been a beekeeper.” It speaks of “the honey of C major.” We then duly hear some Bach in C major. We also hear a famous aria—an aria made famous by a movie. And “Estrellita,” in two different versions: the original song, plus what Heifetz did to it, or rather, for it. The podcast includes other appetizing items as well. A fine smorgasbord.
Bach, Prelude and Fugue in C major, “The Well-Tempered Clavier,” Book 2
Catalani, “Ebben? Ne andrò lontana,” from “La Wally”
Coleridge-Taylor, “You Lay So Still in Sunshine”
Milhaud, “Love, My Heart”
Shostakovich, Piano Concerto No. 2, first movement
