« previous episode | next episode »

Friday, September 06, 2013

For this New Sounds, hear a load of European music from composers responding to American minimalism, including music from pianist and composer Arthur Jeffes – son of the the late Simon Jeffes, founder of Penguin Café Orchestra.  Hear some music by Sundog, the first new project on the Penguin Cafe Label, which is Arthur Jeffes on piano and Oli Langford on violin, and is something like "chopped up post-electro" minimalist chamber.

Also sample works from Switzerland’s Nik Bartsch and his band Ronin, and Italy’s Ludovico Einaudi.  Plus, Belgian composer Wim Mertens' work from the 80’s, “Gentlemen of Leisure” and music by Sicilian cellist/composer/producer Giovanni Sollima.
