Episode #2916

Three Post-Minimalists

« previous episode | next episode »

For this New Sounds, we hear a jaunty and combative work of many different textures by young Irish composer Andrew Hamilton - "Music for Roger Casement." 

In Hamilton's work, 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 from years past.  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.
