  • Requiem-Based New Music, Part I

    For this New Sounds program, the first of a two-part series, we'll listen to many works that draw inspiration from the text of the requiem mass, but have come from different parts of the world. For starters, there's Mistico Mediterraneo, a collaboration involving three different artists: Sardinian trumpet player Paolo Fresu, Italian bandoneonist Daniele Di Bonaventura and Corsican all-male choral group A Filetta.  We'll hear music from the principal composer of A Filetta, Jean-Claude Acquaviva, with his “Rex tremendae” and “Figliolu d’ella”  from a requiem written in 2004.  And much more.

  • Joshua Rifkin Presents Wildflowers

    Judy Collins' 1967 album "Wildflowers" is a lovely collection of thoughtful songs sung beautifully to inventive, timeless orchestral arrangements. There hasn't been another album quite like it, before or since. Joshua Rifkin, who created the sensitive arrangements for "Wildflowers," and conducted the recording, joins David Garland in the WNYC Studio to tell of his experiences helping to make this timeless album at age 23. We learn how he was at first stuck for ideas, and how at a convivial California lunch of wine and Collin's Beef Stroganoff, inspiration suddenly struck. Rifkin shares insights about a few specific arrangements, and we learn a bit about Rifkin's own diverse career as a member of The Even Dozen Jug Band, arranger of "The Baroque Beatles Book," catalyst for the revival of interest in composer Scott Joplin, and Rifkin's life-long involvement with the music of Johann Sebastian Bach.

  • Requiem-Based New Music, Part II

    For this second program of a two-part mini-series, we'll listen to more unconventional works that draw inspiration from the text of the requiem mass. There's music by Gavin Bryars, the Cadman Requiem, written in honor of Bryars' sound engineer and friend, Bill Cadman, who died in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.  Also, hear a requiem by Ragnar Grippe from Sweden for soprano and synthesizer, a wordless requiem by Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, and more.
