B.P.R.D. – 10/18/2009

A mix this week, starting with the first, dizzying movement from Poulenc’s 1932 Concerto for two Pianos and Orchestra. I’m starting to understand the “part monk, part guttersnipe” description. Then Krzysztof Penderecki’s famously harsh 1960 piece Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima for 52 Strings. Next is a chamber piece by Brook Joyce, “Six Degrees of Separation,” from the innova CD “Waves of Stone: Music by Brook Joyce,” which came out in 2000. Then a stylistic jump to a noise/collage/jazz piece by my new favorite group, the Canadian Ensemble SuperMusique, the title track to “Y’a du bruit dans ma cabane,” a fantastic CD from 2008. The show ends with another short piece from Brook Joyce, “toydogmusic” for piccolo and toy piano. Hope you enjoy.
