Episode #3178

Requiem-Based New Music, Part I

« previous episode | next episode »

Monday, March 07, 2011

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.

Great show. The Jocelyn Pook work (the one with the wailing placed against the choir's descending microtones, flats or whatever that is called) just killed. Can't wait 'til the playlist gets up.

I loved the "Gradual Requiem" by Ingram Marshall. You always point me to so much excellent music, so thank you!
