Friday, August 29, 2003

This highly varied program from March 10, 1994 includes a special, rare appearance in the New Sounds studio by R. Suppangah and the Royal Court Gamelan of Solo, an Indonesian court gamelan orchestra. We also hear from Steven Gorn and Robert Dick, a pair of very talented dueling flutists, electric guitarist Gary Lucas, the Turtle Island String Quartet, and Irish flutist Seamus Eagan. The show kicks off with works by Michael Nyman (pictured) and Alan Hovhaness, a dean of American composition who was also an improviser. We hear him improvising at our piano on a traditional Armenian song.
