Morning Concert:
The Guitar Music of Bill Horvitz

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 37 mins
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

This program begins with a selection of six works for solo guitar, composed and performed by Bill Horvitz, at a concert at the University of California in Santa Cruz on June 10, 1975, and broadcast as part of its Morning Concert by KPFA on September 30, 1975. These are followed by Horvitz playing a selection of unidentified tracks. These might be selections of music he composed for “Calm Down Mother” a musical theater work by Megan Terry, but that can not be confirmed. The sounds of some chatter with the audio engineer, and the fact that the first unidentified track is later repeated twice, makes it clear that these last tracks are the result of a recording session in the KPFA studios, and probably not an air-check recording of the actual Sept. 30, 1975 broadcast. Horvitz was born in 1947, studied with Art Lande, and has had a long career as a virtuoso guitarist who has successfully blended the boundaries of jazz, folk, rock, and contemporary classical guitar. He has collaborated with a veritable who’s who of avant-garde composers and improvisers, including John Zorn, Elliott Sharp, Butch Morris, Eugene Chadbourne, and many more.
