Contemporary Music:
Fifth Biennial Survey of Contemporary Music: Works by Frederic Rzewski & Julius Eastman

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 30 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

One in a series of programs originating from the International Service of Belgium Radio and Television in which the works of contemporary 20th century composers are highlighted. In this edition two pieces by American composers are performed by the Society of Electronic Music of Buffalo, New York. First is “Le Montons De Panurge” by Frederic Rzewski, a work scored “for any number of musicians playing melody instruments plus any number of non-musicians playing anything.” Rzewski, a talented pianist and composer, was born in Massachusetts in 1938, was a member of the Italian-based avant-garde electronic music group Musica Elettronica Viva, and later taught at the New School in New York. The second work “Creation” is by Julius Eastman, who was born in 1940 in Ithaca, New York and taught at the State University of New York in Buffalo. It to appears to be an aleatoric piece for voice, instrumental ensemble, and some prerecorded sounds.
