A New Type of Art Song

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

For this New Sounds, take a listen to the new kind of art song.  There are some traditional America hymns, spirituals, and folk songs, recast as art songs, arranged into an unsettled and haunted landscape by George Crumb.  It’s something that composer Charles Ives did nearly 100 years before Crumb.  We’ll also hear music by Ives, as performed by Theo Bleckmann and the quintet Kneebody – a group who uses piano, trumpet, saxophone, bass, drums and some effects.
