GERM on ZOOM (Sept 23, 2020)


If you are the sort of person that HUNGERS for the new, the strange, the astonishing music you MAY NOT KNOW, then Golden Era Recorded Music project is for you! It's all about the great vinyl from 1948 to 1988. We play LPs on a classic WELL-TEMPERED turntable direct to ZOOM via computer!


Tonight's show will explore OUT OF THE MAINSTREAM LPs, music of protest, organized vulgarity and the forgotten past.


We will start with a New York rock band, THE FUGS, that was closely associated with ALAN GINSBERG and became THE counter culture statement of the 1960s. Indeed, some of the band members were also literary poets.


GUSTAV MAHLER'S early symphonies often nearly incited riots in the 1890s because he seemed to relish breaking the prevailing rules of decorum and tradition. We will hear 2 sections of his 3rd symphony entitled “THE MOB” and “THE CLIFFS & PEAKS.”


A return to the early 18th century will happen with Henry Purcell's birthday ode to Queen Mary, “COME, YE SONS OF ART.” This late analog gem may make believers of you early instrument skeptics; wait until you hear the countertenor duet!


We send out a link for the Zoom meeting every Wednesday by email! Please contact us and let us know if you'd like to be added to the mailing list.


See you all at 7 pm TONIGHT!
