Thursday, June 07, 2012

On this New Sounds show, hear a world premiere recording by Dylan Mattingly written specifically for the New York-based ensemble of young musicians, Contemporaneous.  Mattingly is a composer, cellist and one of the founding co-artistic directors of the group (he’s also a pitcher for Bard College’s first ever club baseball team.)  Listen to part two of his epic and emotional poem for chamber orchestra depicting Amelia Earhart’s final flight, called “Atlas of Somewhere (On the Way to Howland Island): Islanded in a Stream of Stars.” 

There are also other large scale works, including a portion of a nine-movement suite that blends jazz and flamenco from bassist/composer/bandleader Alexis Cuadrado.  Rounding out the show is music by composer and guitarist Dave Flynn, featuring fiddler Martin Hayes, and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra in Ireland.
