O' Death

Saturday, August 04, 2012

For this New Sounds, we'll hear the grim and gripping classic "O Death," sung by the legendary bluegrass singer Ralph Stanley, along with composer Oscar Bettison’s work by the same name. Bettison’s “O Death” is a seven-movement requiem masque which mixes saxophones, trombone, banjo and piano with jaw's harps, harmonicas, recorders, metal mixing bowls, melodica, flower pots and prepared wrenches. Bettison's recording of the piece is performed by Ensemble Klang, and features liner notes by Alex Ross.
