Sound Out Friday 9 October 2020
Tonight we hear world premiere broadcasts of music by composer Frank Corcoran. His String Quartet was composed to mark his 75th birthday and performed at last year's New Music Dublin, and we’ll hear it performed by the Contempo Quartet (pictured). Plus a recording of his Nine Looks at Pierrot, short character pieces that portray a strange little doll with no heart and yet almost a heart, recorded with Hard Rain Soloist Ensemble.
Tonight we present an all-American programme of music of works of Adams, Reich and You Know Me From Here by Missy Mazzoli, a 'trek through chaos and loneliness to a place of security and companionship.' Recorded live at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, St. Paul, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra are conducted by violinist, Pekka Kuusisto.
You can now hear our playlists each week on Spotify, and where possible we'll include all the music featured on the programme.
