Episode #3178

Requiem-Based New Music, Part I

« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

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.

From the melodious inflections of phone messages, listen to a number of works sourcing voicemails, most from tape(!) on this New Sounds program. Hear Irish composer Roger Doyle’s “Memento Mori,” composed around intimate verbal time capsules culled from various answering machine messages of Doyle's family, close friends and partners, all of them recorded and preserved in the late 80's.
