Ode To Gravity:
Music by Edward MacDowell, Irving Fine, & André Jolivet

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 63 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

Charles Amirkhanian introduces two works for solo piano and then a piano concerto. The first piece is by the American composer, Edward MacDowell, whose estate in Peterborough, NH was later converted by his widow into a sanctuary named the MacDowell Colony, where to this day artists can go to spend several months in peaceful surroundings and work on their art. The second piece, by Irving Fine, was actually composed while he was a resident of the Colony. The final piece in this program is André Jolivet’s piano concerto, heard here in an out-of-print, mono recording from the 1950s.
