Episode #2853

New "Concert" Music

« previous episode | next episode »

Thursday, November 26, 2009

Listen to music by composer/pianist Missy Mazzoli and her band Victrola – a blend of winds, strings, keyboards, and lo-fi electronics. Consuming and arresting clarinet, violin, and keyboard melodies meet swirling strings, spoken samples, and minimal processing in Mazzoli’s “I Am Coming For My Things” and “A Door Into the Dark.” Also, hear Evan Ziporyn’s motoric minimalism on his work “Drill,” featuring the composer as bass clarinet soloist. There’s also new music of a concentrated micro-minimalist sort from David Lang with his storm of oboes surrounding a percussive glass bottle (or CAN, if you prefer) in the buzz-saw sharp, “I Fought the Law,” as performed by Sentierri Selvaggi. And, much more.
