An Interview with Robert Hughes

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 72 min
Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA

Recorded on December 16, 1980, Charles Amirkhanian interviews musician, composer, and conductor Robert Hughes. Topics discussed include working with Laurie Anderson on the world premiere of her work "Born, Never Asked". Fans of Anderson's later popular albums will recognize many of the musical themes running through this piece. The recording of the piece, made on May 17, 1980, features Anderson performing with the Oakland Symphony Youth Orchestra, an award winning group which was led by Hughes for many years. In this program Hughes also discusses the "new consonance" as represented by the work of Terry Riley, Steve Reich and himself.
