Chamber Concerto by Robert Erickson

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 21 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

Ralph Shapey conducts the Hartt Chamber Players in a performance of Robert Erickson’s “Chamber Concerto”, composed in 1960. Born in Michigan in 1917, Erickson studied composition with Ernst Krenek and Roger Sessions, before eventually moving to the West Coast in the early 1950s where he soon became a well recognized composer and teacher, as well as one of KPFA’s music directors. While still distinctly modern in nature, this work was composed before Erickson’s experimentation with tape music and natural sounds that marked his later works. This recording was made at the University of Illinois.
