Violin Works

Friday, March 25, 2011

For this New Sounds, listen to the new recording, "September Canons" featuring violinist Todd Reynolds performing a piece written for him by American composer Ingram Marshall.  It’s a soaring, searing work for violin with electronic processing, and is a "lamentation on the events of September 11, 2001."  Also, hear music by new York-based violinist and composer Christopher Tignor, of the band Slow Six, from his release “Core Memory Unwound.”   Plus there’s music from Swiss violinist Paul Giger, with a Tibetan Buddhist-inflected piece for violin and choir, and a work for violin and keyboard by Max Richter.

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.
