Score One for Dance

Thursday, December 12, 2013

Sample music from unusual dance scores on this New Sounds program.  Listen to music from the New York trio, Spanish Fly - consisting of slide trumpet player/composer Steven Bernstein, slide guitar mastermind Dave Tronzo and tuba genius Marcus Rojas- which draws on famous American folksongs. Some of that trio’s music was used for the production of “Fly by Night” by the San Francisco Ballet.

Nightmusic I

Saturday, March 17, 2012

From Mozart to Bartok, there’s a long tradition of music about nighttime.  We’ll hear some contemporary works that suggest the darkness, the stillness, the unsettled dreams and mixed emotions that people associate with the night.  Hear works by John Corigliano, George Crumb, Brian Eno, Raphael Mostel, and others.
