The Art of New Songs

Saturday, September 08, 2012

We'll hear works that exist at the juncture of art song and pop song on this New Sounds. There's music from Clogs, who have lately become purveyors of vocal chamber pop, with additions of singers from the indie rock world. There's also a brilliant collection of new work from Corey Dargel, a Texas-born, Brooklyn based composer, who impishly crafts classical pop song cycles. Plus, music by Natalie Merchant, Alex Cline, Brian Dewan, and David Sylvian.

Larger Ensembles

Sunday, November 27, 2011

For this edition of New Sounds, we'll listen to larger ensemble pieces with multiple soloists.  First off, from a 1976 orchestra piece, we'll hear "Runes" by Keith Jarrett, with Jan Garbarek on saxophone, Charlie Haden on bass, and the composer at the piano.  Then there's music by drummer/composer Alex Cline for a 6-12 member ensemble, featuring Jeff Gauthier on violin.  Plus music from a soundtrack to the Merchant of Venice by Jocelyn Pook, with countertenor Andreas Scholl, and more.
