    Stokowski Recordings with the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1930


    In 1930, Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra recorded much less music than during the three previous rich years of 1927, 1928, and 1929.  Perhaps this was due to Victor caution, following the great stock market crash of the previous October, 1929.  In any case, there were only four days of recording during the year 1930: Saturday, 15 March 1930, and following the final concert of the Philadelphia Orchestra 1929-1930 season, on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 28, 29 and 30 April 1930. 


    From these sessions, thirteen 78 RPM sides were issued.  As an indication of the direction of Stokowski's interests at that period, it is remarkable that 7 of these 13 sides were of Stokowski transcriptions or orchestrations.  Five sides of Baroque music, and two sides of Debussy piano music.  The other two recordings were of works Stokowski and the Orchestra had performed during this 1929-1930 season: SibeliusFinlandia, and the Tchaikovsky 1812 Overture.

    A Panel of Two Authors Shining the Spotlight on Hubert Harrison

    in Writing

    The Virgin Islands Literary Festival and Book Fair will feature several events highlighting the historic Crucian writer and  activist, Hubert Harrison, the weekend of March 26-29. Saturday evening, March 28th, there will be a performance of David Edgecombe’s play Hubert Harrison. 


    Today we meet two gentlemen who diligently worked to bring the biography of a forgotten Virgin Islander to the forefront. One, an author, the other, a playwright, but they both wrote about Crucian-born Hubert Harrison,


    Dr. David Edgecombe, writer, director, instructor, and playwright has worked at the University of the Virgin Islands from 1990 to present. In 1992, he became director of the Reichhold Center for the Arts. He's "internationally known for several plays, including Strong Currents and Coming Home to Roost. Upon returning to the Islands, David joined the faculty at the University of the Virgin Islands and became their artist-in-residence, premièring his play, Heaven.


    Dr. Jeffrey Perry, formally educated at Princeton, Harvard, Rutgers, and Columbia,  preserved and inventoried the Hubert H. Harrison Papers and helped to place them at the Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Columbia University and to develop the Hubert H. Harrison Papers, 1893-1927: Finding Aid. He is the editor of A Hubert Harrison Reader (Wesleyan University Press, 2001) and the forthcoming Writings of Hubert Harrison.


    Dr. Perry will deliver a keynote address and a presentation discussing his work uncovering Harrison’s writings and documenting his story and work in Perry’s book, Hubert Harrison: The Voice of Harlem Radicalism, 1883-1918 (Columbia University Press).


    Follow Dr. David Edgecombe and Dr. Jeffrey Perry on their Facebook page.

    The Heretics' Hour: Why Tolerance is the 'toxic trait'

    in Education

    TOLERANCE is the by-word of the post-1960's era. It is enshrined today in academia, taking the place of "Truth" as the highest ideal to be achieved through  education. The why and wherefore will be explained.


    Carolyn Yeager will discuss Adolf Hitler's views on Tolerance, using references from Mein Kampf in 1925, his paper "Road to Resurgence" in 1927, Table Talk in 1941-42, and his "Talk to Officers at Platterhof" in 1944. His views on tolerance, race and rulership remain surprisingly consistent. His economic views will also be discussed in regard to "Road to Resurgence."
