Post-classical Chamber Music

Saturday, October 26, 2013

"Post-classical Chamber Music" might be described as music that grows out of the “Classical” tradition but strips it down to the bare essentials. We’ll hear from the Belgium-based composer Sylvain Chauveau with music for piano and a couple of strings.  Also, listen to music from the Italian pianist/composer Ludovico Einaudi, along with something from the German composer Max Richter’s record “memoryhouse.”  Plus, new music from Christian Frederickson and the late Jason Noble (formerly of Rachel’s), for a live performance/video installation, called “The Painted Bird (Part II): Amidst.”

"Full Fathom Five": The Tempest in Music

Monday, November 12, 2012

It’s the latest literary edition of New Sounds, featuring music inspired by Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” and just one hour to fit in as much as we can.   There are many references to music in the play (and surely, many a term paper written to that end…) and this “Full Fathom Five,” one of Ariel’s songs, describes a death by shipwreck.  It’s also the title of one of the songs on the album, "Tempest" by the group The Young Scamels (the late Jason Noble and members of Rachel’s.)
