14. - Works by Three Belgian Composers [0.566% Popularity: 0.00000]
Works by Three Belgian Composers Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 91 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian introduces lively compositions by Raymond Baervoets, Vic Legley, & Joseph Jongen, three 20th Century Belgian composers. First heard is a “Guitar Concerto” by Raymond Baervoets, a neoclassical composer who began experimenting with avant-garde music in 1957, and after two years of study with Goffredo Petrassi starting in 1961, he became increasingly interested in microtonal and aleatoric music. This “Concerto,” composed in 1959 captures the composer on the cusp of that major transition. Also included in this program are two compositions each by Vic Legley and Jospeh Jongen. Legley was a more traditional composer who was greatly influenced by his teacher Jean Absil, and his own experience as a concert violist, with some of his best works being his string quartets and his “Violin Concerto No. 2,” which is included here. Joseph Jongen was an organist and child prodigy who w...
