81. radiOM.org - Krenek plays Krenek: Four Piano Works Performed by the Composer (1963) [3.481% Popularity: 0.00000]
Krenek plays Krenek: Four Piano Works Performed by the Composer (1963) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 62 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA This is a 1963 program featuring four piano works by Ernst Krenek introduced and performed by the composer himself. This first work, “Piano Sonata No. 3,” is a 12 tone work in four movements. Krenek describes in some detail the series of tones used in the composition and how the work is constructed. “Sechs Vermessene,” as Krenek explains, is a series of measurements of a 12 tone series, thus the title, which roughly translates as “Six Measurements.” “ Basler Massarbeit” was originally composed for two amateur pianist friends of Krenek and its title also serves as a pun as it can mean both something “custom made,” or more strictly, “a measured work,” both of which aptly describe the piece. Technically it is not too difficult to perform yet it still remains intellectually interesting due to its intricate combination of rhythms. It too is based on a twel...

Speaking of Music: Conlon Nancarrow (1984) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 101 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) Recorded on February 2, 1984 as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer Conlon Nancarrow before a live audience. The program begins with a short slide show narrated by Eva Soltes, about life and work of Conlon Nancarrow. Charles Amirkhanian then talks with the composer about his music. Conlon Nancarrow has been recognized as one of the most fascinating 20th century composers in the world. An expatriate American who lived in Mexico City, Nancarrow composed almost exclusively for the player piano. His incredibly complex scores are not playable by human hands, but through his laborious hand-punched piano rolls, the music is dazzling in its speed and complexity. In this program Nancarrow discussed the oppressive political atmosphere that led him to leave the Unite...
86. radiOM.org - The Politics and Music of Cornelius Cardew [3.234% Popularity: 0.00000]
The Politics and Music of Cornelius Cardew Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 mins Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA From a program recorded on January 25, 1975, Charles Amirkhanian interviews the British composer, pianist, and Socialist, Cornelius Cardew. Born in 1936, Cardew had a traditional music education, studying composition and piano at the Royal Academy of Music in London. In the late 1950’s he became interested in avant-garde and electronic music, working with Karlheinz Stockhausen, and composing a series of aleatoric pieces influenced by the ideas of John Cage and others. In the late 1960s and 70s Cardew’s interest in Socialist politics, the Chinese Revolution, and the teachings of Mao Zedong, led him to reevaluate the academic avant-garde, essentially rejecting it as elitist, and irrelevant to the struggles of the working class. He went on to be a founding member of both the Scratch Orchestra and the People’s Liberation Music, both of which were nonhierarchical music...

Morning Concert: The Music of Larry Austin Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 106 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA In a program from 1988, Charles Amirkhanian talks with one of America’s most fascinating composers specializing in electro-acoustic and computer music, Larry Austin (b. 1930).

This program surveys his music, both instrumental and computer-generated. It includes a performance of his “Sinfonia Concertante: A Mozartean Episode” which takes as its text letters written by Mozart which are read by a narrator and then turned into computer sounds while a chamber orchestra plays music sometimes reminiscent of Mozart. Also heard is th...
88. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 9, Concert 2: 01 “Four Studies of Peking Opera” by Ge Gan-ru [3.232% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Festival: OM 9, Concert 2: 01 “Four Studies of Peking Opera” by Ge Gan-ru Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 29 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Each of the four movements (”Stage Music”, “Aria”, “Narrative”, & “Quick Beat”) distills some characteristic elements of Peking Opera. The first movement evokes the unique percussive timbres and rhythms which typically accompany the gestures of Peking Opera performers on stage. A variety of dramatic music accentuates the performers' gestures and underscores their individual roles. The second movement celebrates specific qualities of Peking Opera aria singing. Starting with the cello followed in turn by viola, violins and piano, a single line of music develops and expands through layers of variations into a complex texture. The piano concludes by summarizing the voices of the four strings. In the third movement, the instruments imitate the singers' spoken narratives which are as essential to Peking Opera as arias are to Western op...
