4. radiOM.org - Works by Three Belgian Composers [5.064% Popularity: 0.00000]
Works by Three Belgian Composers Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 91 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA Charles Amirkhanian introduces lively compositions by Raymond Baervoets, Vic Legley, & Joseph Jongen, three 20th Century Belgian composers. First heard is a “Guitar Concerto” by Raymond Baervoets, a neoclassical composer who began experimenting with avant-garde music in 1957, and after two years of study with Goffredo Petrassi starting in 1961, he became increasingly interested in microtonal and aleatoric music. This “Concerto,” composed in 1959 captures the composer on the cusp of that major transition. Also included in this program are two compositions each by Vic Legley and Jospeh Jongen. Legley was a more traditional composer who was greatly influenced by his teacher Jean Absil, and his own experience as a concert violist, with some of his best works being his string quartets and his “Violin Concerto No. 2,” which is included here. Joseph Jongen was an organist and child prodigy who w...

Other Minds Festival: OM 15: Concert 3 View Item Type: Video Duration: 107 min Event Type: Music Program Origin: Other Minds Additional Media Files (click to view) The third and final concert of the 15th Other Minds Festival of New Music (OM 15) was held in San Francisco on March 6, 2010.

It began with the world premiere of Gyan Riley’s composition for jazz quartet, commissioned for this event by Other Minds. This is followed by two works by the long established minimalist composer Tom Johnson, who began his career as a music critic for the Village Voice before moving to Paris to pursue a full time career as a composer of works marked by their mathematical rigor and sonic complexity. The evening then concluded with another world premier, a nearly 40 minute romp through the early Industrial Revolution as interpreted by composer Carla Kihlstedt, who makes effective use of the often breathless accounts of various innovat...

Unlike the elegant simplicity of Johnson, Kihlstedt describes her composing style as “messy,” typically starting with a wide variety of ideas that are examined, aligned, and developed in a manner that she describes as ...
