S. Bach by György Kurtág. All the pieces were performed by Dennis Russell Davies and Maki Namekawa in the Herbst Theater in San Francisco. First on the program was “Six Scenes from Les Enfants Terribles” by Philip Glass. This work was originally composed in 1996 as part of a trilogy of operas based on three films by Jean Cocteau. It has since been arranged for two pianos by Davies and Namekawa. This was followed by Balduin Sulzer’s “Dialogue for Two Pianos”, a recent work (2007), that was composed specifically for this concerts two performers.

2. radiOM.org - New Music for Pianos : Live Recordings by ONCE [6.251% Popularity: 0.00000]
New Music for Pianos : Live Recordings by ONCE Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 50 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Based in Ann Arbor, MI, ONCE was one of the most experimental groups of American composers active in the mid-20th century. Among its members were many that even until this day remain fairly obscure, although others, such as Robert Ashley and Gordon Mumma, have gone on to become well-known throughout North America and the world. In this program you will hear a selection of early, largely aleatoric works that were first presented in a series called New Music for Pianos, and were performed at a variety of Midwestern universities during the 1960s. The program begins with “Cassiopeia” by George Cacioppo, a two minute piece consisting of four structures written on a single page. They can be played in any order and are here performed by Robert Ashley and Gordon Mumma. This is followed by Ashley’s own “Detail 2b” composed in 1962. The one obvious characteristic of the piece is the i...

4. radiOM.org - Speaking of Music David Lang [5.709% Popularity: 0.00000]
Speaking of Music: David Lang Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 125 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer David Lang, on February 15, 1990, as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series. Lang plays recordings of two of his orchestral works, including the world premier performance of his “Eating Live Monkeys”. Lang talks about some of the difficulties of writing new music for orchestras, including the typical lack of rehearsal time. Lang also describes his compositional techniques and his somewhat heretical opinion that notes are not the most significant part of his works. A self-described post-ugly music composer Lang’s compositions try to go beyond the dissonance that marked much of 20th century music, while still salvaging their ability to challenge both the listener and performer. In addition to his composing Lang is also one of the founders of the New York based Bang on a Can Festival, one of the premiere American...
5. radiOM.org - Colin McPhee and the Music of Bali [5.707% Popularity: 0.00000]
Colin McPhee and the Music of Bali Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 31 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: C Amirkhanian Henry Cowell presents a program on the music of Indonesia, featuring early recordings of gamelan music, as well as many transcriptions of Balinese music by Colin McPhee. The music of Indonesia first came to the attention of the West when in the 1920s Erich M. von Hornbostel and others collected and commercially released a number of gamelan performances, recorded in the villages of Indonesia. These early 78rpm records later inspired the Canadian composer, Colin McPhee, to travel to the island of Bali, for what was to be a trip of a few months but ended up lasting more than seven years. During that time McPhee made numerous transcriptions of ceremonial gamelan music for two pianos and occasionally for flute and piano. Cowell presents some of those early field recordings as well as many of McPhee’s arrangements, performed by McPhee and fellow composer Benjamin Britte...
6. radiOM.org - An Evening of Music with Steve Reich & Musicians at the UC Berkeley Museum, (Nov. 7, 1970) [5.697% Popularity: 0.00000]
An Evening of Music with Steve Reich & Musicians at the UC Berkeley Museum, (Nov. 7, 1970) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 60 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA A live performance of four early works by Steve Reich: "Four Organs", "My Name Is", "Piano Phase", and "Phase Patterns." This performance marked an important moment in San Francisco Bay Area new music history with the triumphant return to the East Bay by Reich, who studied at Mills College with Luciano Berio, and who performed the 1964 world premiere of Terry Riley's seminal work, “In C", at the San Francisco Tape Music Center. The resonant acoustics of the University of California at Berkeley Museum’s concrete interior were especially appropriate for “Four Organs”, with its long additive sustained chords over a maraca pulse. The capacity crowd occupied every conceivable area of the interior space, including walkway ramps suspended over gallery spaces. It was an electrifying evening! Musical Selections: Four Organs (1970) -- My Nam...
7. radiOM.org - Krenek plays Krenek: Four Piano Works Performed by the Composer (1963) [5.690% 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...
8. radiOM.org - Morning Concert The Music of Julia Wolfe and Ivan Wyschnegradsky (Feb. 28, 1992) [5.687% Popularity: 0.00000]
Morning Concert: The Music of Julia Wolfe and Ivan Wyschnegradsky (Feb. 28, 1992) Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 93 min Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: C Amirkhanian Recorded on February 28, 1992, Charles Amirkhanian interviews composer Julia Wolfe, and plays a selection of her works. Wolfe discuses the origins of several of the rather unusual titles for her compositions. We then hear “The Vermeer Room” which is scored for 16 instruments, as well as her string quartet “Four Marys.” This later work, we learn, was inspired by a Scottish folk tune yet fails to quote any of the original work or even reference Scottish folk music. The second half of the program is then dedicated to the works of Ivan Wyschnegradsky, who is best known for his microtonal works and his invention of the quarter-tone piano. We hear 12 of his preludes for two quarter-tone pianos as well as an excerpt of an early microtonal string quartet. Musical Selections: The Vermeer Room, for 16 instruments [excerpt, talk...

Ode To Gravity: John Dinwiddie vs. the Future of Music Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 79 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian introduces John Dinwiddie, who presents a live concert of his music written in minimal formats and featuring one to nine performers. Originally broadcast on April 25 1973, from the studio of KPFA the works include “Quiver” a work for solo prepared piano, and performed by Beth Anderson. This is followed by “Music for Eight Point Eight Piano Players,” performed by actually nine players, utilizing two grand pianos and all 88 keys on the keyboard. There are then two works for two pianos, the rather somber “The Tomb of Alexander Scriabin,” and the more energetic “My Triple Fingerrrring,” which features a series of trills. Both are performed by Anderson joined by the composer. The whole group then joins together for a group vocalization, incorporating lip and tongue trills, without any use of the vocal chords. The concert then concludes with a lengthy g...

This concert was the concluding event of the festival and the second to be held at Hertz Hall on the U. C. Berkeley campus on November 4, 2012. Following the earlier panel discussion on how Nancarrow’s compositions for player piano have been arranged for live performance and a variety of instrumental groups, this concert features many examples of these transcriptions. The first half of the concert began with Nancarrow’s “Piece for Tape” first heard as originally conce...
