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 liturgical piece by James MacMillan—a living composer—and ends with another liturgical piece by Wynton Marsalis—another living composer. In between, you’ve got some Saint-Saëns, some Sibelius, and some other music. Jay says some provocative—possibly offensive—things about a couple of cello concertos. Otherwise, it’s sweetness and light, mainly. A good show.
James Macmillan, Miserere
Saint-Saëns, Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor
Bach, Sarabande in E flat
Sibelius, Scherzo from Symphony No. 1 in E minor
Marsalis, Gloria Patri from “The Abyssinian Mass”
