122. radiOM.org - A Concert of Atonal Music by Josef Matthias Hauer [2.487% Popularity: 0.00000]
A Concert of Atonal Music by Josef Matthias Hauer Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 29 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA From a concert recorded in 1974, Joseph Kubera and Julie Steinberg perform pieces for piano, written by the Austrian composer and musical theorist, Josef Matthias Hauer. After playing several unidentified works for solo piano, Kubera is joined by Steinberg in order to perform works for piano four hands. Hauer, a seminal figure in Austrian music, and the inspiration for a number of characters in novels by authors such as Thomas Mann and Hermann Hesse, is perhaps most famous for developing a style of composing utilizing all 12 notes in the chromatic scale, independent of and years before Arnold Schoenberg. Many of his works share the same name of "Zwölftonspiel" (twelve-tone game), or “Zwölftonmusik" (twelve-tone music), two of which are featured in this concert. Musical Selections: [unidentified piano solo] -- [unidentified piano solo] -- [unidentified piano solo] -- Zwölf...
123. radiOM.org - Henry Cowell at the KPFA piano & Critics Circle on Censorship in the Arts [2.475% Popularity: 0.00000]
Henry Cowell at the KPFA piano & Critics Circle on Censorship in the Arts Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 10 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Here are three brief excerpts from a transcription disc of some of the earliest broadcasts on KPFA, recorded in mid-August of 1949. The first and probably most interesting clip includes three excerpts of early piano works by Henry Cowell, presumably performed by the composer himself. Heard are bits of “Tides of Manaunaun,” perhaps his best known tone cluster piece, “Aeolian Harp” in which the strings of an open piano are strummed, and “Lilt of the Reel,” with Cowell commenting on the harmonization strategy he employed in its creation. Following this four and half minute segment there follows a short example of the type of eclectic conversation that was heard on KPFA in 1949, a discussion of Freud’s theory of sex and the role of sin in Christian thought. The last segment is little more than an introduction to a panel discussion on cens...

Shere, who was heavily influenced by the new music of John Cage and others, describes in detail Duchamp’s iconic work and then talks about how he has tried to capture it’s spirit in his avant-garde opera. Shere highlights his remarks with slides and excerpts from the opera. Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: Ces Désirs du Quatuor [excerpt, included in “The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors, Even”] (1964) (3:20) -- Perh...

Over the course of his career, Hovhaness studied his own Armenian ancestry, and also the musical cultures of India, Japan, and South Korea, traveling extensively to research the traditional music of those countries. Their influence is made clear in many of his 500+ works which include 67 symphonies, three ballets, and an enormous catalog of instrumental music including two for Indonesian gamelan orchestra. This concert featured a wide selection of piano music by Hovhaness, including two world premiers, as well as a rarely heard composition by the Armenian compose...

We thank him and Maki Namekawa for generously proposing this benefit concert to honor their friend and colleague composer Philip Glass on the occasion of his 80th birthday.” PROGRAM This evening’s performance begins with the suite from the opera Les Enfants terribles exploring the expressive possibilities of multiple pianos.

128. radiOM.org - Jazz Archives Ragtime Piano, Part II [2.411% Popularity: 0.00000]
Jazz Archives: Ragtime Piano, Part II Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 28 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Phil Elwood presents a program on the evolution of Ragtime music from Scott Joplin to Jelly Roll Morton. The early composers of Ragtime saw themselves foremost as composers and looked down on the unschooled musicians that later adapted Ragtime into what became known as Jazz. Joplin in particular was rather conservative in his approach to Ragtime, and did little to include the swinging beat that was to be popularized by later musicians such as Jelly Roll Morton. Most of this music predates modern recording techniques and was typically cut onto rolls that could be performed by a player piano. Elwood plays a selection of tunes that span the time from the turn of the 20th century up to the 1920s when Jazz first began to come into its own. Musical Selections: Something Doing (1903) / Scott Joplin -- Euphonic Sounds (1909) / Scott Joplin -- Grace and Beauty (1909) / James Scott -- Sunburst...
