White Light Festival
Friday, October 26, 2012
For this New Sounds, hear some electronic music by two German composers, both dealing with Light. Karlheinz Stockhausen's Licht (Light) is a cycle of 7 "operas" - one for each day of the week. Freitag (Friday) begins with an hour long electronic prelude and concludes with an hour long electronic postlude. We'll hear excerpts from both the Friday Greeting and the Friday Farewell.

As we enter the coldest days of winter, we invite you to banish the chills and stasis of January by listening to last November's transcendent White Light Festival: Credo - a live Web cast from the Church of St. Paul the Apostle featuring members of the Icelandic band, SigurRós, the Hilliard Ensemble, the Latvian National Choir and the Wordless Music Orchestra.
