Arts and Music airing this week

A stellar roster of performers present the music of Franz Joseph Haydn, a seminal figure in the development of classical form and an inspiration to Mozart, Beethoven and many other composers who followed.

E. Randol Schoenberg, the grandson of the composer Arnold Schoenberg, is an expert in handling cases involving looted art and the recovery of property stolen by the Nazi authorities during the Holocaust. He tells the story here of his most prominent case, "Republic of Austria v. Altmann" which resulted in the successful return of six paintings by Gustav Klimt, including the "Golden Lady," to their rightful owners. Recorded on 05/06/2015.

"She is Fierce: The Art of Joyce Cutler-Shaw" is an exploration of the multimedia artist's expansive and diverse body of work, featuring commentary from colleagues and an in-depth interview with Cutler-Shaw. Throughout her long career the art of Joyce Cutler-Shaw has taken on a wide spectrum of forms, from melting iconic "ice words" and reflective light sculptures to installations and public commissions to intricately drawn depictions of the human form. Her subjects are human identity and the natural world; her themes are evolution and survival - from reptile into bird, from mammal to human, and from human, perhaps, to humane. But always at her art's core, according to Cutler-Shaw, is her use of drawing "as a way of knowing, as a mode of inquiry, as a visual language." Her "word images" have been central motifs, informing her works from the outset. Culter-Shaw's works are exhibited in museums and library collections worldwide.

In the finale concert for UC San Diego Jazz Camp 2016, drummer Willie Jones III leads an ensemble of talented students in a performance of standards and new works. Recorded on 06/24/2016.

Conductor Steven Schick and the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus perform music composed in mid-life, a time when the exuberance of youth begins to transform into the reflections and measured responses of mature adulthood. Each of the three composers represented managed to retain some of that youthful vitality, though expressed within the kind of disciplined structure and mastery of craft that results from experience. Recorded on 2/12/2007.

Giuseppe Verdi composed his "Messa da Requiem" in memory of writer and humanist Alessandro Manzoni, whom Verdi greatly admired. This monumental work for four vocal soloists, double chorus and orchestra premiered in Milan in 1874, with Verdi himself conducting. Though the Requiem enjoyed contemporary success it disappeared from the concert repertoire for a time, before being revived in the 1930s. It is now the most frequently performed major choral work, and is regarded (along with Mozart's Requiem) as the supreme composition in that genre. Recorded on 3/19/2017.

In "Pictures and Snapshots," La Jolla Symphony offers an eclectic program that mixes old with new and newer. Flutist Carols Aguilar shines in Carl Nielsen's virtuosic yet playful "Concerto for Flute and Orchestra;" Vivian Fung's evocative "Biennale Snapshots" receives its U.S. premiere accompanied by Tina Tallow's original video; and the concert concludes with that perennial favorite by Modest Mussorgsky, "Pictures at an Exhibition," in the popular version orchestrated by Maurice Ravel. Recorded on 5/7/2017.

Paola Antonelli, the senior curator of the Department of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, delves into design's many directions and into its future. She takes us on a fascinating tour of design to ask some very serious questions.

UC San Diego's annual Jazz Camp concludes with performances by its gifted attendees. The student ensembles play both standards and new compositions in a variety of styles, under the guidance of distinguished faculty members.
