New Music from Poland

Sunday, March 02, 2014

This New Sounds is full of new music from Poland.  We’ll hear from the klezmer and Balkan-inflected jazz-ish strains of Kroke, along with “hardcore folk” from the Warsaw Village Band, whose driving fiddle and trumpets take wedding songs or Balkan Jazz and layer them with “white voice” singing (a lyrical screaming used by Polish shepherds).

Requiem-Based New Music, Part II

Sunday, June 30, 2013

For this second program of a two-part mini-series, we'll listen to more unconventional works that draw inspiration from the text of the requiem mass. There's music by Gavin Bryars, the Cadman Requiem, written in honor of Bryars' sound engineer and friend, Bill Cadman, who died in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.  Also, hear a requiem by Ragnar Grippe from Sweden for soprano and synthesizer, a wordless requiem by Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, and more.
