McEnroe won seven Grand Slam singles titles—three at Wimbledon and four at the US Open—nine Grand Slam men's doubles titles, and one Grand Slam mixed doubles title. He is remembered[citation needed] for his shot-making artistry and superb volleying; for his famous rivalries with Björn Borg, Jimmy Connors, and Ivan Lendl; for his confrontational on-court behavior, which frequently landed him in trouble with umpires and tennis authorities; and for the catchphrase "You can not be serious!" directed toward an umpire during a match at Wimbledon in 1981. He was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1999. After a 12-year absence from the professional tour, McEnroe returned to top-level doubles competition in 2006 and became the oldest male player to win an Association of Tennis Professionals title in 30 years at San Jose.

  • Aero-TV: Babbitt Addresses NBAA 2010: Next-Gen, Fatigue, Safety (Part 1) FAA Boss Talks To BizAv Industry In a October 19, 2010, address to the National Business Aviation Association, FAA Administrator J. Randolph Babbitt, expanded his familiar aero-stump speech to a crowd assembled for the this year's reinvigorated BizAv convention. His speech covered a lot of ground but was based in the usual topics this Administrator has emphasized time and time again when his audience is an aeronautical one. Babbitt started his address by noting that when "the NBAA formed in 1947, the industry was just starting to grow after World War II. The United States Air Force had just become its own department. The Boeing 377 Stratocruiser debuted that year. And Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier. The founders of this organization met at The Wings Club in New York and realized that to be successful, they would have to chart a course for the role of business aviation. They didn't know exactly how the industry would evolve. But they knew that business aviation would help companies visit customers more efficiently, make sales more easily and service their products more quickly in order to stay ahead of the competition." From there Babbitt emphasized his concerns over the building of the Next-Gen ATC environment, emphasizing the already growing role of WAAS, RNP and the fact that, "We have published more than 2000 new satellite-based WAAS-LPV approaches and departures at more than 800 airports in the United States. There are now more WAAS-LPV procedures than ILS ...

  • Milton Babbitt, Composition for 12 instruments, ensemble conducted by Ralph Shapey Completed in 1948, this is one of Babbitt's earliest works in which the formation and transformation principles of the 12-tone pitch class system were applied to other musical dimensions, particularly the temporal. Other pieces notable for the same reason are his "Three Compositions for Piano" and "Composition for Four Instruments." Although in a single movement, "Composition for 12 instruments" divides obviously and externally into two sections, which are complimentary insofar as the explicitly presented materials of one function as the source material for the other. Milton Babbitt, Professor of Music at Princeton University, also has been a member of the faculties of the Salzburg Seminar in American Studies, The Berkshire Music Center (Tanglewood), and the Princeton Seminar in Advanced Musical Studies. His honors include a Joseph Barnes Prize, a New York Music Critics' Circle Citation, an Award of the National Institute of Arts and Letters, and a Guggenheim Fellowship. He is a member of the Committee of Direction of the Electronic Music Center of Columbia and Princeton Universities. [Notes adapted from the son-nova LP release] Conductor Ralph Shapey was well known both as composer and conductor. He studied composition with Stefan Wolpe and violin with Emanuel Zeitlin. As a composer, his honors included honorable mention for the George Gershwin Award, a Frank Huntington Beebe Award, an Italian Government Grant, and a Brandeis University Creative Arts Award.

  • Milton Babbitt : Three Compositions for Piano pf: Robert Taub In 1947, Babbitt wrote his Three Compositions for Piano, which are the earliest examples of total serialization in music, pre-dating Olivier Messiaen's "Mode de valeurs et d'intensités" by two years, and Pierre Boulez's "Polyphonie X" by four.

  • Milton Babbitt, String Quartet No 4 1970 Part One "Listen, don't worry about whether or not the music sounds coherent to you the first time you hear it. What about the first time you hear a sentence in Hungarian? -- assuming youre interested in listening to and learning Hungarian." Milton Babbitt Although Babbitt is disinclined to discuss his music in terms of aural or aesthetic pleasure, it undoubtedly provides both. And no work better proves this than the String Quartet No. 4, composed in 1970 and dedicated to the Julliard Quartet. Cast in a single movement, the quartets musical surface is filled with widely-spaced, pointillistic gestures, some of bleak austerity, some of ferocious intensity. Textures are constantly in flux, but always possess a luminous transparency redolent of Webern. Individual voices and embroidered by an ornate filigree of dynamics, timbres, articulations, and performing techniques, all of which change from note to note. Lines are fragmented, leaping precipitously from one register to another, dislocated by the absence of metrical pulse. Never doctrinaire in his employment of 12-tone theory, Babbitt turns repeated pitches into a recurring motive, and uses an increasing amount of doubling as the quartet progresses. Like his teacher, the great composer Roger Sessions, Milton Babbitt also reinterpreted Schoenbergs legacy, but he was more interested in systematizing the method than in imitating the language. Babbitt, who was introduced to Schoenberg shortly after the latters arrival in New York in ...

  • Milton Babbitt- Lagniappe (1985) Lagniappe by Milton Babbitt, for solo piano. Babbitt is one of the most important composers of the Serialist movement, and, along with Carter (and to a lesser extent Wuorinen), represents what basically amounts to America's response to what Boulez was doing over in Europe. Just a little piano piece, but it's one I really like, so I thought I'd share. It was written specifically for the performer here, who is Robert Taub. This recording comes from a set of complete piano works, and this particular piece is a juxtaposition of his earlier, more rigid 12-tone style, and his later contrapuntal style.

  • Milton Babbitt, String Quartet No, 4 1970 Part Two Milton Babbitt was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and was raised in Jackson, Mississippi. He studied violin and later clarinet and saxophone as a child. Early in his life he showed ability in jazz and popular music.[citation needed] Babbitt's father was a mathematician, and it was mathematics that Babbitt intended to study when he entered the University of Pennsylvania in 1931. However, he soon left and went to New York University instead, where he studied music with Philip James and Marion Bauer. There he became interested in the music of the composers of the Second Viennese School, and went on to write a number of articles on twelve tone music including the first description of combinatoriality and a serial "time-point" technique. After receiving his bachelor of arts degree from New York University College of Arts and Science in 1935 with Phi Beta Kappa honors, he studied under Roger Sessions, first privately, later at Princeton University, where he joined the music faculty in 1938 and received one of Princeton's first Master of Fine Arts degrees in 1942 (Barkin & Brody 2001). During the Second World War Babbitt divided his time between mathematical research in Washington, DC, and Princeton, where he became a member of the mathematics faculty from 1943 to 1945 (Barkin & Brody 2001). In 1947, Babbitt wrote his Three Compositions for Piano, which are the earliest examples of total serialization in music, pre-dating Olivier Messiaen's non-serial "Mode de valeurs et d ...
  • Milton Babbitt, Du, a song cycle - Bethany Beardslee, Robert Helps Du, composed in 1951, is a setting of seven short poems by the German poet, August Stramm. Although the pitch structure is in all dimensions twelve-tone determined, the rhythmic structure derives from the sonic and rhythmic structure of the poetry. In our opinion Milton Babbitt is one of the two or three leading figures in contemporary music, and needs no introduction. Nevertheless, the following is his current biography from Wikipedia: Babbitt was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and was raised in Jackson, Mississippi. He studied violin and later clarinet and saxophone as a child. Early in his life he showed ability in jazz and popular music.

  • Bob Babbitt with Craig Alexander and Chris Lieto Pt.1 Bob Babbitt: We put together an awesome Q&A with Craig Alexander and Chris Lieto last for the Tri Club of San Diego and we had 400 folks there. It was our largest crowd ever for one of our Q&As. My favorite part was when Chris Lieto was chatting about racing Craig at the Boise 70.3. Lieto led onto the run and had a lead cyclist with him. He asked the guy to let him know if someone was coming. 8, 9, 10, 11 miles in, the guy tells him hes fine. Then just past 12 miles, without any warning the guy screams out CRAP! Turns out Crowie was only 50 yards back and closing fast. At that point it was too late. Crowie ran Lieto down and won the race by 2 seconds.
