Sound Out Sunday 21 July 2019
Tonight we explore the newly released album from Donnacha Dennehy (pictured), Surface Tension / Disposable Dissonance. Performed by Third Coast Percussion and Crash Ensemble, the pieces respectively explore the relationship between percussion instruments and tonality, and shifts between harmony and dissonance. Plus the music of British composer Havergal Brian who wrote 25 symphonies in the last twenty years of his life.
Amir Mahyar Tafreshipour and Fozieh Majd are Iranian composers who write music that is both international in ambition, while retaining a sense of their folk musical traditions. Tonight we hear chamber works by both performed by soloists including Darragh Morgan (photo Sophie Dennehy) of the Fidelio Trio. We’ll also explore a new orchestral album from the Singapore Symphony Orchestra under Lan Shui, performing orchestral works by Claude Debussy.
You can now hear our playlists each week on Spotify, and where possible we'll include all the music featured on the programme.
