New Music With Piano


Listen to some new music with piano on this New Sounds, including compositions from the pianist/composer Blue Gene Tyranny, who has worked with John Cage, Iggy Pop, and Carla Bley, among others.  We'll listen to the Digital Music Ensemble of the University of Michigan performing "Intermediary with a Rendition of Stardust." We'll also hear Canadian composer and pianist Lubomyr Melnyk's work, "Song of Galadriel" inspired by Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.  Plus, music from the minimalist tradition by both Terry Riley, and Belgian composer Wim Mertens.
