Classical Transformations

Friday, November 11, 2011

Alarm Will Sound, the chamber orchestra, explores the boundaries of acoustic and electronic music with their new collected "a/rhythmia."  We'll hear some of their arrangements on this New Sounds. Also,  pianist Christopher O’Riley offers classical variations on songs by Tori Amos, Pink Floyd, Tears for Fears and others.  All of that, and a whole lot more.

Orchestra of the 21st Century

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

For this New Sounds, we'll focus on the orchestra of the 21st Century.  Chances are this orchestra is a bit leaner and more versatile than a  100 member-plus symphony orchestra and most likely includes electric and/or electronic instruments.  We'll hear many examples, including Alarm Will Sound, the Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP) and Sujian Stevens' The BQE Project, a work for a quirky symphony orchestra. And more.

NightMusic II

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

Listen to another program of works that evoke the sounds rhythms, unsettled nature, and stillness (or not) of the night for this New Sounds.  There are works by pianist and composer Ludovico Einaudi from his latest release, "Nightbook," along with Ingram Marshall's "Fog Tropes" for brass sextet and ambient sounds on tape.  Plus, we'll hear an excerpt from the "Politics of Quiet," from Meredith Monk and her vocal ensemble, together with Alarm Will Sound. And more.

Hear excerpts from new music's biggest annual event - the 2008 edition of the annual Bang On A Can Marathon, recorded live at the World Financial Center on this edition of New Sounds.  There's music from Alarm Will Sound tackling the Beatles' Revolution #9, and perhaps a bit of post-rock pulsetronica from Dan Deacon.

New Orchestral Music

Saturday, June 26, 2010

What will the new orchestral music of the 21st Century sound like?  Perhaps not quite full-sized orchestras, the likes of which can fill a concert stage, but rather chamber orchestras that incorporate rock instruments - saxophones, electric guitars, and drum kits.
