Three Post-Minimalists

For this New Sounds, we hear a work from young Irish composer Andrew Hamilton "Music for Roger Casement." It’s a jaunty and combative work of many different textures; one hears organ and horns duking it out, while strings and oboe also tag-team in the musical brawl. Hamilton is one of the MATA Young Composers commissioned for this year’s festival. Also, we'll hear Steve Martland's "Horses of Instruction" a work for an 11-piece varied band that might evoke a jazz-funk summit between Reich and Stravinsky. And a bit of a work by Nico Muhly.
