1. radiOM.org - Other Minds Festival OM 9, Concert 2: 01 “Four Studies of Peking Opera” by Ge Gan-ru [5.105% 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...

Although Ms. Wolfe has gone on to a successful career as a composer, whose works have been performed by a wide variety of notable orchestras and ensembles, and as co-founder of the famous Bang-On-A-Can Festival in New York City, she still reportedly fondly remembers when, after this performance of her “Early That Summer,” fellow OM 1 composer Conlon Nancarrow reached over to shake her hand and told her how much he admired the work. And what is not to like about this kinetic yet consonant work, performed here by the Alyeska Quartet? In the composer’s own words “ While living in Amsterdam [in 1992] I began ‘Ear...

A song that particularly embodies the philosophy of life as expressed by the rock generation from which ter Veldhuis emerges. There must be some way out of here said the joker to the thief. There's too much confusion I can't get no relief... The text can be seen as optimistic or despairing, but also as encapsulating an idea to be explored. That is the spirit in which the Third Quartet was conceived. The music is all about sound, about the forces of attraction and ...

I was living in a cabin in the desert/canyon country north of Cal Arts, deeply involved in researching Native American music and culture, and their relationship to landscape " an ongoing concern in my work. I was also strongly influenced by the music and ideas of Harry Partch, and by my studies of surrealism, shama...
