#3506: New Music From the Concert Hall

Email a Friend

Listen to some new music from the concert hall on this New Sounds program.  There’s music from composer Bryce Dessner, who has been working with Kronos Quartet on a series of pieces.  We’ll hear his “Aheym,” (‘homeward’ in Yiddish), touching on the idea of flight and passage, and dedicated to his grandmother, Sarah Dessner.” Also, hear new music from composer, singer, violinist and multi-instrumentalist Caleb Burhans and his latest release, the “emo-classical” epic, “Evensong.”

In it, Burhans explores both the secular and sacred, with three pieces for large ensemble - one evoking Arvo Part - and frames the record with songs of worship used in the Christian church.  Then listen to music from the New York-based composer Eve Beglarian, from her “River Project,” in a concert recording from Miller Theatre.  Plus, music by a quartet of guitarists from Argentina, the Nuntempe Ensamble.
