Special: The Best of 2017

For New Year's Day, on Monday, January 1, 2018, from 3-6 AM, WWUH will feature the best of the year's new music; an exciting, scintillating, creative, fun and rocking assortment of tracks that came out in 2017. 

Since commercial radio stations today rarely play new releases (other than the obvious  mainstream hits), the Battles Zone is proud to keep alive the almost outmoded tradition of  searching out and  presenting the new and promising music so our beloved listeners can be exposed to a rich variety of fresh material! We'll be selecting 3 hours of the best rock music that was created and unleashed on the world throughout 2017...not a countdown, but a delicious rock and roll  stew of tasty tidbits, all carefully chosen for their  freshness and flavor to serve as soundtrack for your New Year's celebration !

Tune in and turn up The Battles Zone on Monday, January 1, 2018, from 3-6 AM for an earful of the  B est of 2017 on WWUH 91.3 FM and online at wwuh.org!

Have An Idea for A Program?

If you have an idea for a radio program and are available to volunteer late at night, please let us know.

We may have some midnight and/or 3am slots available later this year.  Email station manager  John Ramsey to find out more about this unique and exciting opportunity for the right person.

Qualified candidates will have access to the full WWUH programmer orientation program so no experience is necessary. He/she will also need to attend the monthly WWUH staff meetings (held on Tuesday or Sunday evenings) and do behind the scenes volunteer work from time to time. This is a volunteer position.

After completing this process, we will review the candidate's assets and accomplishments and they will be considered for any open slots in our schedule.


   Excerpt from "Insight into WWUH, Semester Report", December, 1973 by Phil Cabot, General Manager

  "First semester was a period of change at WWUH.  First the constitution was changed to correct many discrepancies.  Second, three members of the station were elected to the executive committee.
    "One area of great change was Engineering.  The engineering department under the guidance of Charles Allen, Chief Engineer, and Stew Yager, Assistant Chief, has been extremely busy this semester.  The department has been responsible for the studio renovation which was been started.  Along with the aid of Ed Nelson, Professor at Ward, the studio renovation when completed will make WWUH's facilities one of the best college radio facilities around.  Although we are still tight for space, we have re-designed the studios for the most optimum use.  This includes a combination talk studio and production studio which will be used for producing those much needed educational programs, a completely remodeled FM studio and a news booth.  Also the department is still working to move the transmitter to WTIC's facility on Avon Mountain. If approved by the FCC this move will be made this spring and as a result WWUH will be the most powerful educational station in CT.
        "As always our primary concern is that of programming.  Roger Stauss, Program Director, is attempting to attain our goal for more educational programming.  Once this goal is achieved WWUH will truly become the "Voice of the University of Hartford."  Roger is attempting to get more participation on the part of the University community.  One example of what has already started are the threatre reviews done by John Balmer, Prof. in the Comm and Theater Departments.  Mr. Balmer has been reviewing several plays around the area and makes very knowledgeable comments on each.  Roger and I both feel that the university community is comprised of so many valuable human resources that the limit to our educational programming is virtually non-existent.  WWUH has also been using many educational tape networks including Pacifica, National Public Radio and the BBC.
    "During Marathon last year the Student Association generously donated $2000 for the replacement and enlargement of the record library.  Jim Shanahan, music director, has been busy at work ordering records and it is expected that we will have one of the finest record libraries when he is finished.
    One thing that I have been very interested in, for public affairs, is the installation of a line into the state capitol in Hartford.  If we are able to install this line we will be able to broadcast different sessions of the legislature which are of particular interest to the Hartford community. This is another example of our continued interest for more public service programming.
    "Have you ever wished you could talk back to your radio?  Well soon you will be able to.  Roger Stauss and I are planning to conduct a telephone talk show that will enable our listeners to do just that.  Listeners will be able to ask questions, suggest ideas, and state opinions regarding WWUH.  We need this kind of feedback in order to become a community minded station.
    "The ideas that Roger and his staff have come up with assure me that WWUH will be growing in the direction which will make the university very impressed and excited.  Eventually we hope that WWUH will be one of the major public relations outlets of the university.
    "Unfortunately, unlike the rest of the station, we are weak financially.  (The audit of our accounts) prepared by Business Manager Michael Ditkoff (shows) we have already been forced to spend a substantial portion of this year's budget.  However the excess spending has been forecast due to the many important and expensive projects which had been planned for this year including the renovation and the move.   Although this puts a financial strain on the rest of the station we feel that these projects were very necessary in order to improve and maintain WWUH.
    "A new department which has been formed at WWUH is that of development.  Under the guidance of Judy Corcoran, this department is responsible for the continued growth of WWUH.  This department is also responsible for the Program Guide, Personnel and Public Relations.
    "Although the Program Guide is still in financially poor shape, we feel this is one of the more important products of WWUH and is worth running at a deficit to maintain.  Terry Sobestanovich, Program Guide Editor, is attempting to increase advertising and subscriptions to the Guide.
    "The personnel of WWUH has been substantially increased this year.   We now have more than forty active members and associate members at the station.  Judy and I are both very happy with this large turn out and hope the personnel department continues to grow.
    "Judy and her public relations department have been very busy this semester.  Not only have we been advertising on twenty three busses throughout the area, our Newington Children's Hospital Drive brought the University and our station very good publicity.  WDRC presented a half h our program on this drive alobng with a five minute presentation on channel 3.  Channel 30 and WTIC radio both publicized the event and there were articles in the Hartford Courant and the Times.
    "One of the most exciting departments this year has been the News Department.  Under the leadership of Andy Brownstein, News Director, the news department has started on the road to becoming one of the best news departments in the state.  One of Andy's primary concerns is to go out and get many actualities throughout CT.  This was evident during the recent elections when student reporters were sent to cover the visits of Sen. McGovern, Sargent Shriver, VP Agnew and Senator Kennedy.  As one who took part in covering some of these events I feel that not only are these events interesting to cover but also very educational.
    "Andy, who took over the department early in the semester, has also held a seminar in news reporting for his staff with Paul Kuntz, News Director of WTIC as a guest speaker.  This is one example how professionals from throughout CT are willing to help train our staff.
    "Andy also realizes the importance of using other news sources besides the UPI and has started using newspapers and experimenting with other news services such as "Earth News."
    "Continuing with our goal for community involvement Andy has started a program of training and using high school students in the Hartford area to do news.  Not only does this interest them in our station, but also in the univ. and the field of broadcasting.  Programs such as these benefit everyone involved.
    "Another idea that was instituted by the News staff was the formation of a booklet with all faculty of the university listed and their main field of interest.  This booklet will enable the department to contact "experts" when news stories need further investigation.    
    "I have been very impressed with what Andy and his department have achieved and look forward to a great news department.
    "One department which has always been of great concern to me has been that of minority affairs.  When the Constitution of WWUH was changed earlier this year this department was put onto the Executive Committee.  This alone was one of the station's most worthwhile achievements.  Anne Harte, who was elected director of this department, hopes to increase minority involvement int he station and to increase minority educational programming.  Already this year Dr. Umunna, Professor in the Black Studies Program, has started an African program once per week and has received several letters praising the show.  Also, a Jamaican program has been presented once per week. Several tapes from our tape networks have also dealt with minority subjects.
    "Another area of minority affairs I have asked Anne to look into is some kind of exchange program with Weaver High School.  Weaver has started a station of their own and perhaps why could use some help with their station.  I feel that we Weaver nearby it is very important to start programs such as these.
    "With the aid of Tricia Beatty, Operations Director, I have been attempting to make WWUH a station the university can be proud of.  Being owned by the Board of Regents, we realize the importance of university and community involvement in WWUH.  Tricia and I are attempting to set up a Connecticut College Broadcasting Association which will enable all member stations to use each others programs.  This will allow WWUH to present some of its educational programs elsewhere in the state.  Also Clark Smidt, who is now FM Coordinator for WBZ in Boston, has informed us that eventually he would like to use some of our educational programming on WBZ.  This would help spread the university's voice throughout New England.  Another project I am working on, with Roger Stauss, is a survey of FM broadcasting in CT.  This survey will aid in in determining what is needed in the way of programming on FM.
    "WWUH continues to present editorial opinions on controversial subjects, including the elections and the incident at Baton Rouge.  As a "public service" media we feel editorial opinions are very important.
    "Dr. Daniel Viamonte, Chairman of the Comm and Theater Dept, has also started a program whereby students taking an introductory communications course are able to receive credit for a lab conducted at our station.  We feel this is one more way in which the university can use the facilities of our station.
    "It has been a very busy semester at WWUH and as you can see by this report a very beneficial one.  I hope you have found this report to be of interest and look forward to any comments you may have."

your "lyric theater" program
with Keith Brown
programming selections for the months of January and February, 2018
 Bellini, Norma.  We begin the broadcast year 2018 with what you might call "Golden Age" programming, harkening back to what many opera lovers consider to be a golden age for opera singers in the early and mid twentieth century. Those immortal voices of the past have  been preserved on acetate disc or reel-to-reel tape for us to hear again today in the twenty first century, often sounding even better now thanks to digital sound enhancement technology.
One such immortal voice was that of soprano Maria Callas (1923-77). In 1952 Callas was at the height of her vocal powers when she made her London debut in Bellini's Norma at Covent Garden. She was recorded live in performance on that historic occasion. Norma was a role that Callas made her own. In fact, she sang the role 92 times in her career from 1949 until 1965 when she retired from the operatic stage. Callas possessed the requisite agility of voice for Bellini operas. She took part in the general revival of bel canto singing alongside soprano Joan Sutherland, who also sang that night in November, 1952 at Covent Garden as Clotilde. Vittorio Gui was conducting the Orchestra and Chorus of the Royal Opera House.
This monaural recording of Norma was reissued on two compact discs in 2017 through Warner Classics in the "Callas Live Remastered" series. 
 Eaton, Danton and Robespierre, Partch, Delusion and Fury. This Sunday we explore the byways of American opera. John Eaton (b. 1935) has an international reputation as a composer of opera, as well as electronic and microtonal music. Back in 1979 he was professor of music at Indiana University. In April, 1978 his opera in three acts Danton and Robespierre was first produced at the Indiana University Opera Theater. Thomas Balcher conducted a chorus of 250 people and an orchestra of 120. The singing cast of thirteen portrayed historical figures from the time of the Reign of Terror of the French Revolution, circa 1791-94.
 Danton and Robespierre was recorded live at its staged premiere. The recording was issued in 1980 on two stereo LP's under the Indiana University Opera Theater's own label.
    That American musical eccentric Harry Partch (1901-1974) was, like John Eaton, a proponent of microtonal music. Partch devised a forty three tone scale in just intonation. He invented at least twenty instruments (mostly wooden) which he constructed himself. For his largely percussive instrumental ensemble he wrote a series of lyric theater pieces. He referred to these pieces as "corporeal art." In style they are ritualistic; they employ his instruments as a theatrical backdrop. I have broadcast recordings of certain of these works, notably Revelation in the Courthouse Park (1960) on Sunday, February 3, 1991 and Oedipus (1951) on Sunday, November 10, 2000.
The culminating work of Partch's life was Delusion of the Fury (1969). The composer was on hand in supervisory capacity for its world premiere recording. Danlee Mitchell, however, directed the singers and players of Partch's instruments. Columbia Masterworks originally issued Delusion of the Fury on two LP's in 1971. It was reissued on a single compact disc in 1999 courtesy of Sony Music Special Products. 
 Gluck, Il Trionfo di Clelia.  "The Triumph of Clelia" (1763) was the next opera Christoph Willibald Gluck wrote after the Vienna premiere of his famous reform opera Orfeo ed Euridice in 1762. Gluck was commissioned to compose an Italian opera seria for the opening of the new public theater of Bologna, now known as the Teatro Communale. A libretto by the leading librettist of the age, Pietro Metastasio, was settled upon for the purpose.
While this opera is in the progressive "galant" style of Orfeo, it has some throwback passages of baroque-style secco recitative. The aria numbers also retain the traditional da capo design. Clelia was accounted a success at Bologna. Gluck recycled some of its music for the French language remake of Orfeo as Orphee in its production in Paris in 1774. Yet the complete score of the 1763 Clelia lay totally forgotten for more than two centuries until Giuseppe Sigismondo de Riso run across it almost by chance in an Italian library. He prepared the performing edition of Gluck's score, and employed it in the world premiere recording of Clelia, made in 2011 in the Megaron, the new concert hall of Athens.
It's de Riso who leads Armonia Atenea, the Greek period instrument orchestra, with a cast of six vocal soloists. Il Trionfo di Clelia came out on three compact discs in 2012 through the German label Dabringhaus und Grimm. The Clelia of the opera's title is a noble and virtuous Roman maiden held captive in the course of the struggle of the city state of Rome to throw off its oppressive Etruscan king Tarquin the Proud.
 Moravec, The Blizzard Voices, Pepusch, Venus and Adonis.  Today's primary audio offering reflects upon weather conditions now in the dead of Winter. In Connecticut we remember the Great Blizzard of March, 1888. For us it was New England's biggest snowstorm ever. But in January of that same year there was a monumental snowstorm in the Northern Plainsland, one that also has been preserved in memory.
It was nicknamed the Schoolhouse Blizzard or Children's Blizzard because it struck so suddenly schoolchildren had to leave for home right away. Many little kids froze to death in snowdrifts. Paul Moravec's The Blizzard Voices (2008) is an hour-long cantata or rather oratorio on the subject of this meteorological event. Paul Moravec (b. 1957) has previously composed two other cantatas on historical subjects: Songs of Love and War (1997), a setting of excerpts from letters sent to and from the fronts of four American wars, and Spirit (2002), based on Lindbergh's own account of his historic 1927 solo transatlantic flight. The Blizzard Voices takes its libretto from Ted Kooser's collection of poems about the storm, many of which he derived from historical records.
 The oratorio was commissioned by Opera Omaha, who first performed it. It then went on to the Oratorio Society of New York. It was recorded in Mechanics Hall, Worcester, Massachusetts, in 2016. Gil Rose conducted the Boston Modern Orchestra Project and the New England Conservatory Concert Choir and Chamber Singers, with six vocal soloists. The Blizzard Voices was released on a single BMOP Sound compact disc in 2017.
     We now turn away from the contemporary American classical music scene to focus on some forgotten lyric theater music of the English baroque. Before Handel came to town there was another German immigrant composer in circulation in London at the very beginning of the eighteenth century. Johann Christoph Pepusch (1667-1752) was born in Berlin. He was a permanent resident of England from 1704 onwards. Pepusch is remembered today as the arranger of the popular tunes that went into John Gay's The Beggar's Opera of 1728.
Pepusch had close connections with the Drury Lane Theatre. He wrote much music for the stage in English language, also cantatas, odes, etc., but no Italian opere serie as Handel did. He did compose a series of dramatic English-style masques, the most elaborate of them being Venus and Adonis (1715). Pepusch had worthy English models to follow, notably John Blow's court masque Venus and Adonis (1685) and Henry Purcell's small-scale opera Dido and Aeneas (1689). Pepusch's Venus and Adonis in turn became  the model for Handel's Acis and Galatea (1718). Pepusch was an ardent advocate of English opera. He knew English audiences didn't like the typical Italian operatic recitatives. He contrived his own style of English recitative blended with arioso passages.
 Venus and Adonis incorporates that style. The little English opera received its world premiere recording in 2015 with the support of the British Handel Institute. Robert Rawson leads the period instrument ensemble with the curious "period" name the Harmonious Society of Tickle-Fiddle Gentlemen. There are three vocal soloists portraying Venus the goddess of love, the beauteous mortal youth Adonis and the god of war Mars. There's also a mini-chorus of huntsmen. Venus and Adonis was released on a single very generously timed Ramee compact disc in 2016.
 Zhurbin, Orpheus and Euridice, Charpentier, La Descente d'Orphee aux Enfers.  In the history of opera, from its very beginnings in the time of Monteverdi onwards, there have been so many, many variations on the ancient Greek myth about Orpheus. This Sunday you get to hear two different operatic treatments of the old story. Alexander Zhurbin's Orpheus and Euridice (1975) is a rock opera variant. Orpheus here is a rock star with an impossibly big ego. He's a "one hit wonder." The captivating hit song he sings he got from his beloved Euridice.
In this version of the story she doesn't descend into the Underworld. Alexander Zhurbin (b.1945) comes from Tashkentoriginally. He was one of the most popular composers in the former Soviet Union. Since 1990 he has resided in New York. Zhurbin's Russian Orpheus and Euridice created a sensation in the old USSR in the 1970's. Claims are made that it was performed 2500 times (!) there and elsewhere in Europe. The double LP release of his rock opera sold at least a million copies. The 1977 LP release was reissued here in the US in 2000 through Albany Records on two compact discs. The two vocal soloists are backed by the Poyshchiye Guitary, the 'Singing Guitars" rock band. Zhurbin's  Orpheus and Euridice easily falls within the sub-genre of twentieth century rock/pop/classical crossover stageworks.
The Russian singers have Broadway-type voices. What they sing may remind you of Andrew Lloyd Webber or Claude-Michel Schonberg. Zhurbin knows how to craft really nice tuneful song numbers. The Albany CD has additional tracks that give us another one of Zhurbin's vocal works, Two Portraits (1999), songs set to the poetry of twentieth century Russian poets Marina Tsvetayeva and Velimir Khlebnikov.
   A much more traditional approach to the Orpheus myth is to be found in a work of the French baroque, La Descente d'Orphee aux Enfers ("The Descent of Orpheus into the Underworld," 1686-87) by Marc-Antoine Charpentier. His opera in two acts was the first-ever lyric stagework in French language dealing with this subject. Charpentier (1643-1704) was a contemporary of the great Jean Baptiste Lully, who created French opera. Charpentier wrote a quantity of church music, some small-scale divertissements, two Biblical tragedies for the Jesuit colleges of Paris, and one large-scale Lullian tragedie lyrique: Medee (1693), which was judged a failure. La Descente d'Orphee is a little gem of seventeenth century vocal art.
The Duchess de Guize made available to Charpentier a group of ten singers and a chamber ensemble of instrumentalists, for whom he reworked an Orpheus cantata he had written in 1683. There's speculation he might have written a third act for his Orpheus opera, but it's not to be found in the autograph score that has survived. The action of the opera seems incomplete where it ends. But the first two acts are a joy to hear as performed by the vocalists and period instrument players of Ensemble Correspondences, directed by Sebastien Dauce. A 2017 French Harmonia Mundi release on a single compact disc.
SUNDAY FEBRUARY 11TH Lully, Armide This tragedie en musique, first staged in 1685, was the last and most magnificent product of the collaboration between the Italian immigrant composer Jean Baptiste Lully and the playwright Phillippe Quinault. Their presentations at the royal court of Louis XIV "The Sun King" at Versailles established the model for baroque music drama in French language.
The Lullian model would last for a century, reaching its ultimate development in the operas of Rameau. Armide is a tragedie lyrique in five acts in the form prescribed in the spoken-word dramas of Corneille. Armide has been recorded several times in the course of the general revival of interest in baroque music in the later twentieth century.
On Sunday, March 25, 1990 I presented Armide in an incomplete recording of the work, one that omits the fourth act, released in 1984 through the French Erato label. The Belgian early music specialist Phillippe Herreweghe directed the Ensemble Vocal et Instrumental de la Chappelle Royale. Listen today for the complete five-act Armide as recorded in Paris in 2015 and released on a pair of silver discs through the latterday French label Aparte. Christophe Rousset leads the period instrument players of Les Talens Lyriques and the chamber chorus of Namur, the Belgian city, along with an international cast of vocal soloists
 Schoenberg, Moses and Aaron.  This past Wednesday, February 4th was Ash Wednesday in the traditional Roman Catholic calendar. That day marks the beginning of Lent, the forty-day penitential period leading up to Easter Sunday. In old Catholic Europe (and in Protestant lands, too) the opera houses closed for the duration, but sacred oratorios were often publicly performed rather than staged operas.
 On these upcoming Lenten Sundays I will be presenting mostly sacred vocal music in the general Judeo-Christian heritage, some of it liturgical, some of it merely inspired by that heritage. Long ago on March 31, 1985 I broadcast a 1976 Columbia Masterworks release of Arnold Schoenberg's Moses and Aaron. Jewish by birth and upbringing, Schoenberg converted to German Protestant Christianity in 1898, then reverted to Judaism in 1933 in a liturgical ceremony, just in time to be persecuted by the Nazis!
Schoenberg had always been deeply committed to his Judaic heritage. Yet the Messianic element in Judaism drew him towards the figure of Jesus. Biblical subjects had occupied the composer's mind before. He wrote a huge unfinished oratorio Die Jakobsleiter ("Jacob's Ladder") between 1915 and 1917. His operatic Moses und Aaron was likewise left unfinished at the time of his death in 1951. Schoenberg did complete two full acts of the three he planned. The third act he allowed to be performed as a spoken word drama.
 The choral sections of the first two acts make use of the innovative Sprechgesang technique that lies halfway between speaking and full singing. Schoenberg considered Moses und Aaron to be his masterwork, and it is one of the largest musical compositions written in the twelve tone scale system he invented. Many famous English singers took part in this 1975 studio recording of Schoenberg's "sacred" opera, among them soprano Felicity Palmer, tenors John Noble and Philip Langridge and contralto Helen Watts. Pierre Boulez directed the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Singers and Orpheus Boys' Choir.
The first two acts of Moses and Aaron fit onto two Columbia stereo LP's. Sung in German.
 Honegger, Le Roi David, Schubert, Mass in A Flat. Arthur Honegger (1892-1955) was a younger contemporary of Schoenberg. The Swiss/French composer was a member of Les Six, the school of twentieth century French composers, all of whom were musical innovators in one way or another. Le Roi David (1923) began as extensive incidental music for a play about the Old Testament king staged in 1921 near Lausanne in Switzerland.
The highly successful stage production encouraged Honegger to enlarge his score into an oratorio. The spoken dialogue of the play was replaced by the single speaking voice of a narrator. The chorus and solo singers were  originally backed by an ensemble of seventeen mostly wind instruments, with piano celeste and harmonium keyboards. Honegger rescored this work in its final form for full symphony orchestra. It has, however, been recently recorded reverting to the smaller instrumental group.
Daniel Reuss conducts members of the famed Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and the Ensemble Vocal de Lausanne, with speaker and four vocal soloists. This version of Le Roi David was recorded in 2016 in Geneva, Switzerland. It was released in 2017 on a single Mirare compact disc. Le Roi David the dramatic oratorio was such a success it inspired Honegger to create more in the genre. He composed a Biblical opera Judith (1926) and Jeanne d'Arc au Bucher ("Joan of Arc at the Stake," 1938).
 I broadcast an old Columbia LP recording of "Joan of Arc," with Seiji Ozawa conducting the London Symphony Orchestra, way back on Sunday, April 1, 1984. Keep listening for a large-scale work of Roman Catholic church music that is symphonic in conception and beautifully melodic: Franz Schubert's Mass in A flat major, D678 (1822).
Listen in particular to the sound of the choristers of St. John's College, Cambridge and five British vocal soloists. Normally the famous Anglican church choir would be under the leadership of their longtime director George Guest. In this 1974 recording for British Decca it's Neville Marriner leading the choir and his own Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields chamber orchestra. Decca's subsidiary label Argo released this recording on LP in 1975. Decca has reissued it as CD disc number 28 in a forty two compact disc package of the complete Argo recordings of the Choir of St. John's.
    In this two-month period of programming I have once again drawn upon recordings loaned to me for broadcast by Rob Meehan, former classical music deejay here at WWUH and a specialist record collector focusing upon the alternative musical stylings of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. From Rob I obtained Orpheus and Euridice by Alexander Zhurbin and Harry Partch's Delusion of the Fury. I contributed my own recordings of Gluck's Il Trionfo di Clelia, Venus and Adonis by Pepusch and the Schubert Mass in A flat. All the other featured works to be heard on these wintertime Sunday afternoons are derived from our station's ever-growing collection of classical music recordings. Thanks as always must go to our station's operations director Kevin O'Toole for mentoring me in the preparation of these notes for cyber-publication.
