Ode To Gravity:
A Concert from Hilversum, Dec. 5, 1973

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 89 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

Charles Amirkhanian introduces a program of music that he originally produced in 1973, in Hilversum, Holland, during his exchange program with the Dutch radio station, VPRO. This radio concert features music generally not well known in the United States, and includes works by Carl Maria von Weber, Henri Rabaud, Tristen Keuris, Jean Absil, Willem Kersters, and Maurice Duruflé. The works range from a traditional orchestral overture to an adventurous modern saxophone quartet. The quality of the performances is generally quite high and serves as a reminder of how much good music seldom reaches the audiences which would otherwise jump at the chance to hear them. Direct from Hilversum hear is your chance to broaden your musical horizons, don’t miss it.
