Brahms composed the Trio in E-flat Major in 1865 to commemorate the death of his mother, Christiane, earlier that year. The four movements of the piece represent the stages of mourning, alternating sombre and lively lively and ending on a note of hope for the future. Recorded on 8/16/2014.

Actress Diane Ladd discusses her Academy Award-nominated performance as the comical, independent and vulgar Flo in Martin Scorsese's Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore. This film was Scorsese's first Hollywood studio production and marked his first (and only) attempt at a female-centered story.

Jazz made its path abroad in 1918 during the "Great War" when one black officer, Lt. James Reese Europe, volunteered for service with members of his Harlem Society Orchestra, forming the 369th Regimental Band. Because the U.S. Army did not allow black soldiers to fight alongside white comrades, the soldiers instead fought with the French and earned the moniker "Hellfighters," along with the Croix de Guerre for their heroism. The Harlem Hellfighters also brought jazz with them, and from Paris the music spread around the globe, becoming the rhythm of the 20th century. The 19th Annual Lytle Benefit Concert pays homage to the Harlem Hellfighters' enduring legacy and raises scholarship funds for promising students attending the Preuss School at UC San Diego.
