Hot Choral Properties

For this New Sounds, we’ll listen to some of the budding and now fruitful partnership of the BYU Choirs (Concert Choir, BYU Women’s Chorus, and others) and composer Eric Whitacre.   Hear Hebrew love song settings by Whitacre, from a recent recording by the BYU Choirs, along with music sung by Chanticleer.  Plus, there’s also choral music with and without instruments from Osvaldo Golijov, Gavin Bryars, and Estonian Veljo Tormis.  Some of these works have sound design, another work is accompanied only by a Tibetan singing bowl.  All that, and more.

New Music from Keyboardists

Saturday, June 30, 2012

The old tradition of the keyboardist/composer (think Bach, Beethoven, Mozart) lives on in the works of England’s Andrew Poppy, whose music might be a mix of rock/pop, with some ambient, minimalist, electronic, and contemporary chamber thrown in.  He calls it a “stew” and rather than fusion music, has dubbed it “con-fusion” music.  We’ll hear some of Poppy’s works, along with some keyboard-informed works by Russian Anton Batagov, music from French-born American Elodie Lauten, and more music for piano, with electronics, tape, and other sounds.

Electroacoustic Chamber Music

Sunday, January 29, 2012

Today’s chamber music can include electronics, electric guitars and bass, and other sounds borrowed from pop music.  It’s not just string quartets and wind quintets anymore.  On this New Sounds, we sample some electroacoustic chamber music from the likes of Bing & Ruth and Build. Plus, music from English composer Andrew Poppy and his amplified orchestra.  And more.
