Music for Viola

Friday, April 04, 2014

Besides drummer jokes, there might be almost as many viola jokes tied for the lead in musical humor.  We'll put all that aside for this New Sounds program, where the viola takes center stage, not necessarily as a solo instrument in a concerto or a chamber setting.  Hear new works for viola, some for viola & electronics, and viola d'amore.  From a forthcoming record by new music champion Nadia Sirota, listen to a piece by Missy Mazzoli, "Tooth And Nail."

Music Out of Time

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

New music made on old instruments, and older music in positively modern settings is what’s in store for this New Sounds program.  Listen to a record from the early music vocal group Orlando Consort in collaboration with jazz rock band Perfect Houseplants, called “Extempore” – literally “out of time.”  There’s also a folk setting involving banjo of a 14th Century tune by Guillaume de Machaut, and music by abbess, composer, and recently sainted Hildegard von Bingen in a decidedly modern arrangement from violist (and viola d’amore wielder) Garth Knox.
