Ode To Gravity: A Concert from Hilversum, Dec. 5, 1973 Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 89 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian introduces a program of music that he originally produced in 1973, in Hilversum, Holland, during his exchange program with the Dutch radio station, VPRO. This radio concert features music generally not well known in the United States, and includes works by Carl Maria von Weber, Henri Rabaud, Tristen Keuris, Jean Absil, Willem Kersters, and Maurice Duruflé.

The Vancouver Sun described Ronal Bruce Smith as a composer who is “filling in silence’s blank canvas with the delicacy of an impressionist’s brush.” In his “String Quartet No. 2, ‘Nostalgia’”, a work in four movements, Smith makes reference to another musical impressionist, Maurice Ravel, b...

"As we look back at the nearly 200 composers we've brought to San Francisco for these gatherings, it seemed a good time to tip our hat to some of our most surprising discoveries who have gone on to make signal contributions to international concert life. We'll also pay tribute to the late Peter Sculthorpe, who had accepted an invitation to be with us as our elder statesman, and the legendary Lou Harrison, whose last work was composed for our 2002 festival and our American steel guitar soloist David Tanenbaum, and will be reprised on our opening night."

This composition presents several images of her: from sounds that replicate hissing and biting, and further analogies, to slithery rippling and connotations of submissiveness, to sounds of singing instruments. The cobra is the main character, creating her own images, as if surrounded by fun house mirrors, which deform and at times obscure the limits of reality. -Dobromiła Jaskot, trans. Anna Perzanowska Dilations For three tenors, three bass clarinetists, and three ‘cellists, the piece is a trio split in three. At moments, the three like instruments enmesh into one sounding body, and in other moments an instrument shares qualities of another. The clarinet timbre, for instance, changes by the syl...
