94. radiOM.org - Other Minds Presents Henry Cowell: The Whole World of Music, Concert Two [2.968% Popularity: 0.00000]
Other Minds Presents: Henry Cowell: The Whole World of Music, Concert Two Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 157 min Event Type: Lecture and Panel Discussion Program Origin: Other Minds On November 13, 2009, at the Presidio Chapel in San Francisco, CA, Other Minds presented the second of two concerts dedicated to the music of Henry Cowell. Born in Menlo Park in 1897, Cowell began his musical career as a concert pianist, and is perhaps best known for pioneering such “ultramodern” performance techniques as “tone clusters,” in which the arms are used to play a number of notes simultaneously, and the direct manipulation of the strings of the piano, in a manner that presaged John Cage’s works for prepared piano. Yet Cowell’s greatest contribution to avant-garde music came with his publication of the journal “New Music Quarterly” and its associated recordings. First issued in 1927, and edited by Cowell until 1936 this journal was where many works, by what are now recognized as the greatest 20th century Ame...

Morning Concert: Ivan Wyschnegradsky: A Memorial Tribute Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 130 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Additional Media Files (click to view) On September 29, 1979, Ivan Wyschnegradsky died in Paris at the age of 86. Only in the last two years of his life did he become widely recognized in Europe for his contributions to the repertoire. Since the early 1920s he had composed in various microtonal systems in an attempt to expand the possibilities of musical expression. Presented in this program is the first American broadcast of Wyschnegradsky’s early (1916-17) mystical work “La Journee de l’Existence”. The performance, commissioned and recorded by Radio France, is stirring and extremely beautiful. In addition Charles Amirkhanian presents the first radio broadcast of his last interview with Wyschnegradsky, recorded at the composer’s Paris studio on June 4, 1976. (from KPFA Folio) Part 1 of 2: Musical Selections: [unidentified quarter-tone piano music] -...

98. radiOM.org - John Cage’s “Winter Music” and “Variations I” [2.821% Popularity: 0.00000]
John Cage’s “Winter Music” and “Variations I” Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 55 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA From a live broadcast on KPFA, recorded on May 20, 1968, Robert Moran and Howard Hersh perform two works by John Cage, “Winter Music” and “Variations I”. Both are aleatoric works featuring a single stark piano mixed with occasional taped sounds, but mostly filled with long periods of silence. The prerecorded bits seem to include a lot of wind and water sounds and taken together certainly seem to evoke the pristine barrenness of a winter’s day, although there is nothing in Cage’s or the performers comments that would indicate that this was it’s purpose. However, freed from the need for meaning this performance will stand in its own right, as a thing of simply being. Musical Selections: Winter Music (1957) / John Cage -- Variations I (1958) / John Cage Performers: Robert Moran, piano Howard Hersh, tape realizations Genres: 20th Century Classical ; New Music Subject: 20th centur...

The program begins with a performance of the Second Sonata, often referred to as the “Airplane Sonata” composed in 1922. This contrasting work, written in the mechanistic style that characterized Antheil’s early compositions, is played by Vladimir Pleshakov.
