Gamelan Beatles

« previous episode | next episode »

Sunday, March 08, 2009

We hear from New York City-based gamelan ensemble Gamelan Son of Lion, in John Morton's "She (really) Had To Go," which riffs on Lennon and McCartney's "Yesterday." Also, a more conventional version of that particular Beatles hit from guitarist Goran Sollscher, and Bach transcriptions for piano duo by Hungarian composer György Kurtág.

Miguel Frasconi from New York City (Inwood)

Just a short note to mention that my last name is
" Frasconi "
with only one "n." (Not Fransconi.)
Thanks in advance for playing my music tonight!
