Performer's Choice:
Program No. 5, Jan. 4, 1964

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 87 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

The fifth in KPFA’s Performer's Choice concert series, recorded in San Francisco, on January 4, 1964. The concert features works, several of which are first performances, by a selection of California based composers such as Peter Ford, John Chowning, Gordon Mumma, and Phil Winsor. Also included are more familiar works such as “Three Page Sonata,” for piano by the pioneering American composer Charles Ives, and the only work by a non-American composer, “Impromptu” by the Swede Folke Rabe. From 1963 to 1964 KPFA presented five such concerts featuring contemporary classical compositions, many by San Francisco based composers, including Lou Harrison, Pauline Oliveros, and Gordon Mumma, as well as works by more internationally known composers such as Karlheinz Stockhausen. The Performer’s Choice concert series served as the springboard for the careers of a number of the young Californian composers featured here.
