New Music for Chorus and Folk Singers

« previous episode | next episode »

Saturday, January 25, 2014

For this New Sounds, hear music for the rich and unexpected combination of folk singer and ensemble.  We’ll take a listen to Swedish composer Bo Hannson’s work for chorus & folk singer, (along with string ensemble), written on chryptical latin text from ancient times.  The singer is fiddler, composer, and voice magician, Lena Willemark, who is as at home with folk music as she is with avant jazz.

There’s also a work for chorus and sean nos singer Iarla O Lionaird by Donnacha Dennehy, featuring Ireland’s leading new music group, the Crash Ensemble.  And more.
