Post-classical Chamber Music

« previous episode | next episode »

"Post-classical Chamber Music" might be described as music that grows out of the “Classical” tradition but strips it down to the bare essentials. We’ll hear from the Belgium-based composer Sylvain Chauveau with music for piano and a couple of strings.  Also, listen to music from the Italian pianist/composer Ludovico Einaudi, along with something from the German composer Max Richter’s record “memoryhouse.”  Plus, new music from Christian Frederickson (formerly of Rachel’s), for a live performance/video installation, called “The Painted Bird (Part II): Amidst.” 

PROGRAM #3218, Post-classical Chamber Music  (First aired on 6/22/11)

An absolutely marvelous hour, I enjoyed every single piece in this show. And as much as I like being constantly exposed to new genres on New Sounds, it's these post-rock / post-classical / minimalism shows that made me fall in love with the show in the first place and I still enjoy them the most. Thank you, John.
