New Music for Chorus and Folk Singers

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.

Where Are They Now?

Monday, September 19, 2011

For this New Sounds, we'll hear music from the late Bo Hansson of Sweden, who was known for his progressive rock record based on the Lord of the Rings, back in the early days of the show (when cavemen roamed the earth.)  However, since then, Hansson had written a string quartet and some lovely choral music besides.  We'll listen to some of these works and revisit German keyboard player and electronic music master Klaus Schulze, sampling some of his classic material and some of his most recent works.
