Recorded on March 17, 1988 as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series, Charles Amirkhanian talks with one of Europe's most original and distinguished composers. Mauricio Kagel was born in Buenos Aires in 1931 and has lived in Germany since 1957. He is also known as a dramatist, filmmaker, radio drama producer, and conductor. In the first half of the program excerpts from "Ludwig Van,” a collage of Beethoven fragments, and "Acustica" a piece performed on instruments created by Kagel are heard. In the second half we hear Kagel's composition “MM51” from his film of the same name, featuring pianist Aloys Kontarsky, as well as his soundtrack for the classic Bunuel/Dali film "Un Chien Andalou", which is scored for orchestra & dogs. Kagel died in 2008.
