Two Works by Richard Felciano

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 15 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

A recording of two chamber works by Richard Felciano, performed by San Francisco Bay Area musicians. The first work is the 1962 composition “Evolutions,” performed by Jerome Rose on clarinet and Lois Brandwynne on piano. This is followed by the 1965 composition “Gravities”, which is scored for piano four hands, and is performed by Milton and Peggy Salkind. Felciano was born in Santa Rosa California in 1930 and studied music at the San Francisco State College and Mills College before traveling to Europe to study with Olivier Messiaen and Luigi Dallapiccola. He later returned to the San Francisco Bay Area where he eventually joined the music faculty at the University of California at Berkeley. In addition to composing such contemporary chamber works as those heard here, Felciano also became quite interested in the science of acoustics and the possibilities of electronic music, and founded the University of California's Center for New Music and Audio Technologies as a place where the interrelationships between sound, psychology, linguistics and computer technology could be explored.
