Now over two decades running, the annual American Festival of Microtonal Music offers New Yorkers a feast of microtonal works - those which use pitches and musical scales not organized in the standard twelve tone to the octave equally tempered way. Microtonal music includes works that make finer divisions within the traditional tuning system, usually by dividing each semitone into two quarter-tones. Host John Schaefer welcomes Johnny Reinhard, microtonal composer/bassoonist, who presents highlights from recent installments.
