Unconventional Piano Works

Friday, January 27, 2012

On this New Sounds, hear some unconventional piano works, including some amplified piano in a work by Charles Ives, “Serenity” as played by Jenny Q Chai from a collection of works, “New York Love Songs.”  Also from that same record, a work by Taiwanese composer Ashley Wang, involving digital piano.  Plus, from a new recording, listen to Lou Harrison’s Concerto for Piano and Javanese Gamelan.  The piano has been retuned to “play nicely” with the gamelan tunings in this world premiere recording featuring Gamelan Pacifica and pianist Adrienne Varner.  That and more.
