  • #3484: Variations on Themes by Brian Eno

    On this New Sounds, listen to distinctive takes on the music of Brian Eno.  Hear composer/pianist Timo Andres weave at least four different tunes by Brian Eno into his “Paraphrase on Themes of Brian Eno,” very much in the way that Franz Liszt might have done on themes of favorite operas.  There’s music from the English new music band Icebreaker, in collaboration with the great pedal steel guitarist BJ Cole, taking on “Apollo,” a score originally written by Brian Eno, Roger Eno and Daniel Lanois for Al Reinert’s documentary on NASA’s Apollo missions. Plus, young pianist and composer Conrad Tao, inspired by Eno, in a work for piano and iPad.  Also, the Bang on a Can All-Stars in Evan Ziporyn’s arrangement of Eno’s classic “Music for Airports.”
