Musical Portraits of the English Landscape

Tuesday, July 01, 2014

For this New Sounds, listen to musical portraits of the rolling hills and little lanes of the English countryside, and the English fascination with landscape.  There’s music from a recent recording by English sax player, clarinetist and composer John Surman,“Saltash Bells.” Built around loops of synth tones, the work is an audio reminiscence of hearing bells ringing from the church across the river.  Also, listen to a portion of an early work from Mike Oldfield, “Hergest Ridge," named after an elongated hill on English/Welsh border.  Also, listen to music from Brian Eno and Jocelyn Pook.  Plus music by Michael Nyman from “Drowning By Numbers.”

Saturday, June 29, 2013

For this New Sounds program, the first of a two-part series, we'll listen to many works that draw inspiration from the text of the requiem mass, but have come from different parts of the world. For starters, there's Mistico Mediterraneo, a collaboration involving three different artists: Sardinian trumpet player Paolo Fresu, Italian bandoneonist Daniele Di Bonaventura and Corsican all-male choral group A Filetta.  We'll hear music from the principal composer of A Filetta, Jean-Claude Acquaviva, with his “Rex tremendae” and “Figliolu d’ella”  from a requiem written in 2004.  And much more.
