Signal @LPR 4/2010 Signal, Live at LPR April 2010 (Nouveau Classical Project)

We’ll hear a quintessential Philip Glass piece, “Glassworks” (1981) from a live recording made in April of 2010 at the Manhattan venue Le Poisson Rouge.  Featuring the super-tight new music all-star ensemble, Signal, conducted by Brad Lubman with keyboardist/composer Michael Riesman, this happens to have been the New York premiere.  For this New Sounds, we’ll sample from the six-part work and listen to music by other keyboardist/composers for hybrid ensembles.

PROGRAM #        3157, Keyboardist/Composers & Hybrid Ensembles                     (First aired on 1-10-11)
