(Albert Schweitzer: physician, theologian, philosopher, musician 1875-1965 )

This month you can win a cd with choral works from Richard Strauss, Wagner and Mahler, if you know the correct answer to our question.
Our question in October was: 'Which well-known American was sold a vacuum cleaner by Captain Beefheart?' The correct answer was: Aldous Huxley (although he was born in England, he emigrated to the United States).The winners are W. de Haan (Utrecht), W. de Bres (Dordrecht), J. Maas (Berkel-Enschot), R. Doesburg (Rotterdam) and W. Verbraeken (België). The cd ‘Selling Hoovers in Mojave’ by
the Rosa Ensemble is on its way to the winners.
This month's question
The question this month is in three parts: Who arranged the choral
works by Richard Strauss for a 16-part choir? Which choir did he
establish? And who was

even longer, if you include the earliest developments in blues and
ragtime. But jazz itself, when did that begin? Maybe in 1917, with the
recordings by the Original Dixieland Jass Band? And what is left of
jazz after the ’70s and ’80s? Are there still new developments?

May I introduce myself…
Karin van den Boogaert: programme maker Acoustic Roots
Karin has been working for the Concertzender since October 2012. “I left the Dutch department of the Wereldomroep in May 2012, saying goodbye with a spectacular 24-hour broadcast on radio and tv - the last 10 minutes can still be seen on YouTube. I had worked there for more than 20 years and was devoted to them. I started with radio, but also presented tv-programmes for the satellite channel BVN for 10 years. Although I also made programmes for many other stations (including Vroege Vogels for the VARA and the Radio 1 Journaal for the NOS) I still treasure my time at the Wereldomroep the most. I could do everything there and learnt so much.”
The next newsletter from the Concertzender will appear in December.
