Severo Ornstein, the son of the composer, is in the studio with Amirkhanian to provide commentary, while Leo Ornstein and another near centenarian, Nicolas Slonimsky, are interviewed by phone. The discussion centers on Ornstein's early history as a Wunderkind pianist in the 1910s, and his enormous output of music over nine decades of composing. Slonimsky details a recent revival of Ornstein's music in his native Russia and Severo talks of his efforts to get Ornstein's music back into print.

15. radiOM.org - Morning Concert The Music of Willem Pijper [5.070% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: The Music of Willem Pijper Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 128 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Han Reiziger of the Dutch radio station, VPRO, guest host’s on KPFA’s Morning Concert, for a program dedicated to the music of one of the Netherland’s internationally best known 20th century composers, Willem Pijper. Although he briefly studied composition with Johan Wagenaar, Pijper was largely self-taught as a composer. Despite suffering from poor heath for much of his life, he managed to create a large body of work that is still widely performed today. In addition to his composing Pijper also worked as a music critic for the “Utrechtsch Dagblad” and helped establish a periodical called “De Muziek”, for which he also wrote a series of essays. This program, which focuses on Pijper’s chamber works, (although one his symphonies is also heard), is an excellent introduction to this Dutch composer. All the more so because of Reiziger’s soft spoken, but highly informative, commenta...
16. radiOM.org - A Concert of Contemporary Avant-Garde Music [5.062% Popularity: 0.00000]
A Concert of Contemporary Avant-Garde Music Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 69 mins Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Selections from a concert of contemporary avant-garde music probably dating back to 1968 or thereabouts. This concert was most likely organized by pianist and composer Robert Moran, who was very active in the San Francisco Bay Area during the late 1960s performing and producing concerts of experimental music, and most of the compositions included were aleatoric in nature. The first selection heard is Moran’s own “Interiors,” scored for an unspecified number of players, and performed here by a brass ensemble of San Jose State University. This is followed by Sylvano Bussotti’s “Sensitivo,” performed by a trio of musicians utilizing a variety of Oriental instruments, including bells, flute, and stringed instruments. “Credentials,” a avant-garde theatrical piece for actor and eight instruments is heard next, with Moran’s tortured monologue being accompanied by an unspecified instr...

18. radiOM.org - Morning Concert The Music of Peter Sculthorpe [5.059% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: The Music of Peter Sculthorpe Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 134 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Peter Sculthorpe (born April 19, 1929, in Launceton, Tasmania) is one of the most renowned composers living in Australia. His informed incorporation of Asian musical elements in his own output makes for a subtle and remarkable blend of styles and sonorities, sensitively accomplished. In San Francisco, his music has been championed by the Kronos Quartet, and on a visit to the Bay Area in 1983, in order to witness the premiere of a piece composed for that ensemble, Sculthorpe talked with Charles Amirkhanian. The two talked about the Australian and Asian influences in his music, Sculthorpe’s forays into opera and musical theater, as well as his meeting Percy Grainger when Sculthorpe was only a child. In addition, a number of Sculthorpe’s work are heard, including his “Piano Concerto”. (from KPFA Folio) Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: Man...
19. radiOM.org - Morning Concert The Music of Denys Bouliane [5.052% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: The Music of Denys Bouliane Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 129 min Event Type: Interview and Music In an interview recorded in June of 1987, Charles Amirkhanian visits composer Denys Bouliane at his home in Cologne, Germany. Bouliane was born in 1955 in Quebec, Canada, but moved to Germany to study with György Ligeti. Bouliane is a former rock guitarist who became interested in classical music when the father of a friend gave him a recording by Stravinsky, after which he quickly decided to pursue a career as a composer, although he didn’t even know how to read music. After an initial rejection he eventually got accepted to study music at Laval University and is currently a Professor of Composition at McGill University. His carefully crafted scores reveal the influence of Charles Ives, Conlon Nancarrow, and Ligeti, in a style which music critic Peter Niklas Wilson has called Magic Realism, the musical equivalent of the literature style of Jorge Luis Borges. In this interview, Boul...
20. radiOM.org - Morning Concert Brecht Composers: A Musical Brecht-fest [5.050% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: Brecht Composers: A Musical Brecht-fest Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 130 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Russ Jennings is joined by theatrical director R. G. Davis in a program dedicated to the various composers that worked with Bertolt Brecht. Davis describes the evolution of Brecht’s political philosophy and how that was reflected in the composers he chose to work with. Particular attention is paid to the period of 1927 to 1933 which saw Brecht’s most successful collaborations with Kurt Weill give way to the more Marxist influenced agitprop theater he created with Hanns Eisler. Davis also plays excerpts from a number of early operas by Arnold Schoenberg that illustrate the early influences of both Eisler and Weill, and set the stage for their transition of serious music from concert halls to musical theaters. Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: [music from the film “Niemandsland”] (1931) / Hanns Eisler -- Galathea [text by Frank Wedekind] (1901) / Arnold...
