How About Now

« previous episode | next episode »

Friday, March 06, 2009

We hear Nico Muhly's chamber work for the Now Ensemble, "How About Now" — which begins tentatively but soon morphs into a dancelike melange that bears a salutatory resemblance to the music of Steve Reich. Also, the Borodin String Quartet essay Schubert's Quartettsatz, and master of the bandoneón Dino Saluzzi teams up with the Rosamunde Quartet for his own "Cruz del Sur."

Also Featured Tonight:

Heitor Villa-Lobos / Guitar Concerto
Paul Lansky / Semi-Suite
David Balakrishnan / Mara's Garden of False Delights
Erik Lindgren / Baroque-A-Go-Go
Virgil Thomson / Northeastern Suite
