On a Large Scale

Friday, July 27, 2012


On this New Sounds podcast, 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 is one more large scale work, a portion of a nine-movement suite that blends jazz and flamenco from bassist/composer/bandleader Alexis Cuadrado.
