Why when. You have just heard the world premier of Richard Wernicke's hearings from one time one. Said to three points from the collection one time one by economics. The piece was played by members of the contemporary Chamber Players of the University of Chicago. The soprano soloist was neither Pilgrim. Mr. Wernecke an assistant professor of music at the University of Chicago was in the audience tonight.
And is being called up to the stage to take a bow. Richard Wherrett. Assistant Professor of Music at the University of Chicago and conductor of the University Symphony Orchestra. Through his works. Lyrics. To his work. Lyrics from one time one has just been given its world premier by members of the contemporary Chamber Players of the University of Chicago. Now once again here are members of the University of Chicago contemporary Chamber Players. In just a moment you will hear Eric salesman's in praise of the all in the cuckoo after William Shakespeare. This work is in two
parts. Part one is titled there's the spring and part two is the winter. These two songs from Love's Labour's Lost with lyrics representing winter and spring create an ironic even bitter mood at the end of what is a light early comedy of courtly manners and wit. The two lyrics. Are. Really two verses of a single poem of identical verse forms but highly contrasting verbal sonic and meaning characteristics. This duality constitutes the basic idea of Mr. Salzman setting. Ralph's AP will conduct members of the Chicago chamber of contemporary Chamber Players and once again Soprano the Pilgrim will be the soloist. Now here is rough shape the conductor and the Pilgrim soloist for Eric salesman's in praise of the awl and the cuckoo.
Rule. Oh.
Oh.

It's intermission time now in Mandell hall at the University of Chicago. And we want to take this opportunity to let our stations identify themselves. This is the national educational radio network. On the second half of tonight's program we will hear works by Milton Babbitt and Robert Lombardo. Now members of the contemporary Chamber Players of the University of Chicago have returned to the stage. The work you're about to hear two sonnets for baritone and three instruments by Milton
Babbitt was completed late in 1955 and first performed in February one thousand fifty six at the Juilliard school's festival of American music for which it was commissioned. The two poems by Gerard Manley Hopkins are spelt from Sibyl's leaves and that nature is a hair on fire. Milton Babbitt was born in Philadelphia in 1916 and studied at Princeton University where he is currently a professor of music. He has received numerous prizes and awards including an award from the National Institute of Arts and Letters. He is also known as an author and lecturer and is a member of the committee of direction of the Columbia Princeton Electronic Music Center. Say people conduct this performance of Milton Babbitt's sonnets.
