Reworking the Renaissance

Sunday, October 27, 2013

We’ll hear the re-shaping and reworking of centuries-old music on this New Sounds.  From New York composer Charles Wuorinen, we’ll hear some of his very early works (from 1962) - pieces recomposed and reworked from a German cathedral Songbook – three of the six of his “Bearbeitungen uber das Glogauer Liederbuch.”

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.
