Music Out of Time

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

New music made on old instruments, and older music in positively modern settings is what’s in store for this New Sounds program.  Listen to a record from the early music vocal group Orlando Consort in collaboration with jazz rock band Perfect Houseplants, called “Extempore” – literally “out of time.”  There’s also a folk setting involving banjo of a 14th Century tune by Guillaume de Machaut, and music by abbess, composer, and recently sainted Hildegard von Bingen in a decidedly modern arrangement from violist (and viola d’amore wielder) Garth Knox.

Dowland's Tears

Wednesday, June 05, 2013

It’s almost a theme and variations edition of New Sounds, taking John Dowland’s “Flow My Tears” as a starting point and playing on the theme of tears and melancholy.  Hear mostly instrumental works based on Dowland’s “Lachrimae” pieces, the best known of which is probably "Flow my Tears," - and it eventually had words.  There’s multiple moods and variations on tears from Austrian trombonist Christian Muthspiel and an all-star quartet of musicians who “are at home in the worlds of both composed music as well as improvisation and jazz.”
