"True Blood" is one of my greatest guilty pleasures. I don't miss an episode, in fact I record it so I can watch it a second time to catch any bit of dialogue I missed the first time.

Warlow looks like one of the guys from ZZ Top. I was expecting him to materialize with a guitar in hand.

During the years that the teenaged Jo Brahms had barnstormed through German-speaking Europe as straight man pianist to Hungarian violinist Eduard Remenyi, he had performed professionally at the piano while Ed hot-dogged it on stage with the violin. That was the essence of the “Ed and Jo Show”, and Jo was absolutely sick of “gypsy violin” by the time he and Ed called it quits. As a result, Brahms never wrote a passage for gypsy violin in his serious works, except for the finale of the Violin Concerto he wrote for his old crony Joseph Joachim.

But the idea of gypsy writing was a part of Brahms’ music, and he moved it to different instruments. In his Quartet for Piano and Strings in G minor, Op. 25, he wrote a cadenza for gypsy piano. In his String Quintet in G, Op. 111, he wrote a passage for gypsy viola. In this Quintet for Clarinet and Strings in B minor, Op. 115, he writes for gypsy clarinet.

The slow movement. marked adagio in ternary (A-B-A) format, contains some of the most emotional writing of the piece. It starts quietly and pensively in B Major, but at 3:30 the clarinet plays a “gypsy violin” passage of utter anguish as the cental section. At 7:17 the opening section repeats in re-composed form. At 10:00, the coda resolves the movement with a sense of peaceful resignation.

Brahms: Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op. 115, second movement

I've kept up with "Game of Thrones", and I've read through the first four books. I'm keeping track of where the TV show and the books diverge and why.

Next week "Dexter" returns on Showtime. He's my favorite serial killer. If you're a murderer, rapist or child molester who has managed to cheat the justice system, there's a reservation for you on Dexter Morgan's table.

After all the heaviness Brahms opts for a short intermezzo marked andantino for his dance movement in the Quintet for Clarinet and Strings in B minor, Op. 115. Andantino is used a lot by Schubert, but few other composers use it. Here it signifies a reasonable walking pace.

It has a sunny beginning in D Major, but at 1:40 the clouds return for a pensive middle section marked presto. At 4:16 the opening section returns in truncated form for a quiet and peaceful end.

Good evening, Maestro! Bravissimo for the Brahms this evening! And I must say, that rendition of the Immolation Scene you posted last evening was one of the best I have seen! The conclusion to that work really gets me going - full adrenalin!

In his clarinet quintet, Mozart ended with a theme-and-variations movement with four variations. Brahms just had to outdo that, and the finale of his Quintet for Clarinet and Strings in B minor, Op. 115, has five variations. The movement is marked con moto,which simply means “with motion”. He wants to keep it moving.

It’s a simple theme in B minor that starts off the movement.
At 1:09, in Variation #1 the cello sings around the melody while the clarinet and other strings accompany.
At 2:14, in Variation #2, the strings take up the theme while the clarinet sings around them.
At 3:30, in Variation #3, all five instruments dance around the theme.
At 4:51, in Variation #4, the obligatory major key variation sounds a bit like “I Am Sixteen, Going on Seventeen”.
At 6:15, in Variation #5, the tune sounds a lot like “Sunrise Sunset”.
But at the end of the variation (7:04), Brahms shocks by returning to the melisma of the first subject of the first movement, indicating that is going to be a cyclical piece. Having made this statement, he finishes the variation but co-mingles it with the first subject in a genuine masterstroke. The end is bleak and uncompromising. In a good performance the audience is sobbing before the applause begins.

I was thinking hard about classical items about fire, smoke, burning, etc., and after hours managing the thread I finally hit on Wagner. Of course, right after that Mary Lou jumped in with all the stuff I should have thought of.

Welcome To All Who Enter This Canteen, To Our Serving Military, To Our Veterans, To All Military Families, To Our FRiends and To Our Allies!



Missing Man Setting

"The Empty Chair"

By Captain Carroll "Lex" Lefon, USN (RET), on December 21st, 2004

"In the wardroom onboard the aircraft carrier from which I recently debarked was a small, round table, with single chair. No one ever sat there, and the reasons, both for the table being there, and for the fact that the chair was always empty, will tell the reader a little bit about who we are as a culture. The wardroom, of course, is where the officers will dine; morning, noon and evening. It is not only a place to eat – it is also a kind of oasis from the sometimes dreary, often difficult exigencies of the service. A place of social discourse, of momentary relief from the burdens of the day. The only things explicitly forbidden by inviolable tradition in the wardroom are the wearing of a cover or sword by an officer not actually on watch, or conversation which touches upon politics or religion. But aboard ships which observe the custom, another implicit taboo concerns the empty chair: No matter how crowded the room, no matter who is waiting to be seated, that chair is never moved, never taken.

The table is by the main entrance to the wardroom. You will see it when you enter, and you will see it when you leave. It draws your eyes because it is meant to. And because it draws your eyes it draws your thoughts. And though it will be there every day for as long as you are at sea, you will look at it every time and your eyes will momentarily grow distant as you think for a moment. As you quietly give thanks.

AS YOU REMEMBER.

The small, round table is covered with a gold linen tablecloth. A single place setting rests there, of fine bone china. A wineglass stands upon the table, inverted, empty. On the dinner plate is a pinch of salt. On the bread plate is a slice of lemon. Besides the plate lies a bible. There is a small vase with a single red rose upon the table. Around the vase is wound a yellow ribbon. There is the empty chair.

We will remember because over the course of our careers, we will have had the opportunity to enjoy many a formal evening of dinner and dancing in the fine company of those with whom we have the honor to serve, and their lovely ladies. And as the night wears on, our faces will in time become flushed with pleasure of each other’s company, with the exertions on the dance floor, with the effects of our libations. But while the feast is still at its best, order will be called to the room – we will be asked to raise our glasses to the empty table, and we will be asked to remember:

The table is round to show our everlasting concern for those who are missing. The single setting reminds us that every one of them went to their fates alone, that every life was unique.

The tablecloth is gold symbolizing the purity of their motives when they answered the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and their loved ones who kept the faith.

The yellow ribbon around the vase symbolizes our continued determination to remember them.

The slice of lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their fate.
The salt symbolizes the tears shed by those who loved them.
The bible represents the faith that sustained them.
The glass is inverted — they cannot share in the toast.
The chair is empty — they are not here. They are missing.

And we will remember, and we will raise our glasses to those who went before us, and who gave all that they had for us. And a part of the flush in our faces will pale as we remember that nothing worth having ever came without a cost. We will remember that many of our brothers and sisters have paid that cost in blood. We will remember that the reckoning is not over.

We many of us will settle with our families into our holiday season, our Christmas season for those who celebrate it, content in our fortune and prosperity. We will meet old friends with smiles and laughter. We will meet our members of our family with hugs. We will eat well, and exchange gifts and raise our glasses to the year passed in gratitude, and to the year to come with hope. We will sleep the sleep of the protected, secure in our homes, secure in our homeland.

But for many families, there will be an empty chair at the table this year. A place that is not filled.

WE SHOULD REMEMBER."

Thanks To Alfa6 For Finding Capt. Lefon's Chronicle Of "The Empty Chair."
