Sound Out Sunday 9 December 2018
Tonight we preview New Music Dublin 2019, hearing works by some of the artists taking part including composers Louis Andriessen and Kaija Saariaho. We'll also hear acclaimed violinist Jennifer Pike exploring the repertoire of composer/musicians who are fundamental to the history of Polish music, in a new release called 'The Polish Violin'.
To mark Jaap Van Zweden’s first season as music director of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, we hear their first recordings together of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring and Debussy’s Debussy La Mer. And in advance of the 2019 Spectrum Festival hosted by the Improvised Music Company, we’ll explore music by some of the artists involved including free jazz legend Peter Brötzmann (pictured) and the Magnetia Orchestri.
You can now hear our playlists each week on Spotify, and where possible we'll include all the music featured on the programme.
