Episode #3052

New Music from Keyboardists

« previous episode | next episode »

Thursday, June 09, 2011

The old tradition of the keyboardist/composer (think Bach, Beethoven, Mozart) lives on in the works of England’s Andrew Poppy, whose music might be a mix of rock/pop, with some ambient, minimalist, electronic, and contemporary chamber thrown in.  He calls it a “stew” and rather than fusion music, has dubbed it “con-fusion” music.  We’ll hear some of Poppy’s works, along with some keyboard-informed works by Russian Anton Batagov, music from French-born American Elodie Lauten, and more music for piano, with electronics, tape, and other sounds.
