#3219: Reworking the Renaissance

Email a Friend
Composer Charles Wuorinen

We’ll hear the re-shaping and reworking of centuries-old music on this New Sounds.  From New York composer Charles Wuorinen, we’ll hear some of his very early works (from 1962) - pieces recomposed and reworked from a German cathedral Songbook – three of the six of his “Bearbeitungen uber das Glogauer Liederbuch.” 

Also, listen to some recasting and re-composing of music by composer Guillaume Dufay (1397-1474) by both German composer Isabel Mundry and UK composer Ambrose Field.  Field, on his record, "Being Dufay," takes some of the vocal fragments by the Flemish master, and re-shapes them into fuller works, using tenor John Potter’s voice and electronics.  Plus, music by Nico Muhly which takes as its starting point a madrigal by English composer and organist Thomas Weelkes (1573-1623.)
