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.”
