Welcome to the Blog of Rich Samuels, Host of “Anything Goes”

Wednesday, 17 October 2012 | Rich Samuels

On the left is a photo of me (snapped by April 14, 2009, by Chicago Sun-Times photographer Brian Jackson) seemingly yelling at Rod Blagojevich. The former Illinois governor had just exited Chicago’s Dirksen Federal Building where he had entered a “not guilty” plea to a wide variety of corruption charges, including the allegation that he had attempted to market, for personal gain, the seat in the U.S. Senate left vacant when Barack Obama was elected President.

I was part of the media scrum (a correspondent for the “Chicago Tonight” show which airs on WTTW, one of Chicago’s public television stations) that pursued Blago that day: and, to be quite frank, I only appear to be yelling at the disgraced former governor: in reality, I was trying to locate my camera operator who had disappeared into the crowd, nowhere to be seen.

A month short of three years after that picture was taken (it’s recently been recycled as the cover art for Natasha Korecki’s book “Only in Chicago”), Rod Blagojevich began serving a 14 year sentence at the Federal Correctional Center Englewood near Denver. I wasn’t around to witness the denouement of his prosecution: I retired from television journalism at the end of 2009 and, as Garrison Keillor once put it, “moved up to radio”.

Since November of 2010 I’ve been hosting WORT’s “Anything Goes” show, bringing my listeners classical music every Thursday morning between the hours of 5 and 8.

To the greatest extent possible, I try to feature the work of local artists and composers, especially those who are younger. When necessary, I have the capability of recording interviews and performances in the field.

I hope you’ll be able to join me each week. I also hope you can continue to provide WORT with the financial support that makes this kind of programming (which is obviously not for everyone) possible.

When I’m not on the air you can follow me via this blog, via Twitter, Facebook or my personal website.

Thursday, July 18 7 pm at Rennebohm Park, Madison The Capitol City Band in concert. Friday July 19 7:30 pm at UW Music Hall, 925 Bascom Mall, Madison. Repeated Saturday, 7/20 at 7:30 pm, Sunday 7/21 at 3 pm, Thursday 7/25, Friday 7/26 and Saturday 7/27 at 7 pm, Sunday, 7/28 at 3 pm). The Madison Savoyards present their production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s “Iolanthe”. The Madison Savoyards first production in 1963 was Iolanthe so it is fitting that the second fifty years of Gilbert & Sullivan in Madison also begins with Iolanthe in 2013. All performances will be in Music Hall on the UW-Madison campus (on Park Street near State at the foot of Bascom Hill) There will be seven performances: Iolanthe was last performed by the Madison Savoyards in 2001 (program cover from that performance, right) and previously in 1988, 1979, 1971 and 1963. The Gilbert & Sullivan archive says about Iolanthe: Iolanthe, or “The Peer and the Peri”, opened at the Savoy Theatre on November 25, 1882, three nights after the final performance of Patience at the same theatre, and ran for 398 performances. Gilbert had taken pot shots at the aristocracy before, but in this “fairy opera,” the House of Lords is lampooned as a bastion of the ineffective, privileged and dim-witted. The political party system and other institutions also come in for a dose of satire. Yet, both author and composer managed to couch the criticism among such bouncy, amiable absurdities that it is all received as good fun. Both Gilbert and Sullivan were at the height of their creative powers in 1882, and many people feel that Iolanthe, their seventh work together, is the most perfect of their collaborations. Saturday July 20, 11 am at Overture Center-Overture Hall. Free Farmers’ Market Organ Concert with organist Wyatt Smith. Wyatt Smith has thrilled audiences at the Free Farmers’ Market Concerts for several seasons. Now he returns with a program that includes J. S. Bach’s Toccata in F, and an amazing selection of movements from from Kurt Knecht’s Missouri Sonat, and Louis Vierne’s best and most popular work, the Symphony in D. Everyone is welcome and no tickets are needed. Sunday July 21 4 pm at Holy Wisdom Monastery, 4200 Highway M, Middleton. Father Bob Koopman, OSB, presents a piano concert “Celebrating Benedict”.

The WORT 89.9 FM Madison, Wisconsin Area Classical Music Calendar for the Week Beginning June 27, 2013 Prepared by Rich Samuels, Host of “Anything Goes”

06/26/13 5:22 PM | Rich Samuels

Thursday June 27, 7 pm at Tennebohm Park, 115 N. Eau Claire Ave, Madison. The Capitol City Band. Concerts last one hour; bring a lawn chair and a friend for listening comfort Concerts continue each Thursday through August. Friday, June 28, 7:30 pm at the Stoughton Opera House, 381 Main Street, Stoughton. The Bach Dancing and Dynamite Society Presents “Poker Face” (repeated Sunday, June 30. 2:30pm at the Hillside Theater, Taliesin, Spring Green). More information at Poker Face program: Copland Flute Sonata (Transcribed from Violin Sonata) Mozart Piano Concerto #22, E-Flat Major (Transcribed by Hummel for Piano, FLute, Violin and Cello) Brahms Sextet in G Major (Transcribed by Kirchner for Piano Trio) A Poker Face gives no hint of whether you’re telling the truth or bluffing. Our musical take involves works written for one instrumental medium that are so artfully transcribed for another, you can’t tell they’ve been transcribed at all. We begin with Aaron Copland’s great Flute Sonata, transcribed from his violin sonata. Mozart’s Piano Concerto no. 22 is presented in a masterful version for piano, flute, violin, and cello created by Mozart’s pupil Hummel. We conclude with one of Brahms’s masterpieces, the String Sextet in G Major, arranged by Theodor Kirchner for piano trio. Saturday, June 29, 7:30pm at the Overture Center-Playhouse, 201 State St., Madison (repeated Sunday June 30, 7:30pm at the Hillside Theater, Taliesin, Spring Green. The Bach Dancing and Dynamite Society Presents {Play the Hand You’ve Been Dealt”. More info at: Program: Dick Kattenburg Quartet for Flute, Violin, Cello, and Piano Korngold Suite for Piano Left Hand, 2 Violins and Cello Beethoven Archduke Trio: Sponsored by Norma & Elliott Sober When you Play the Hand You’ve Been Dealt, you make the most of whatever situation you’ve been handed. Our musical version features composers who were handed lemons and made lemonade. Dick Kattenburg was Dutch Jew who died in the Holocaust. Despite the terrible hand he was dealt, he composed fantastic music, including the Quartet for flute, violin, cello, and piano. Erich Wolfgang Korngold was commissioned to write a work for pianist Paul Wittgenstein, who had lost his right arm in World War I. The Suite for two violins, cello, and piano left-hand is a thrilling work in which Korngold literally plays the hand he was dealt. Our season concludes with Beethoven’s “Archduke” piano trio, one of his greatest creations. The premiere performance of this trio was Beethoven’s last appearance as a pianist in public, for deafness soon overtook him. Musicians will include artistic ….
