Modern Notebook for June 25, 2023
Coming up on the next Modern Notebook with Tyler Kline: we’ll hear new string quartet music by Anna Meredith titled “A Short Tribute to Teenage Fanclub.” Also, music by James Lee III and Angelica Negron; and this piece by Andy Akiho for violin and steel pan titled “Deciduous.”
Then: Sebastian Fagerlund’s “Chamber Symphony” is music that explores slow, nearly imperceptible transformation: the music grows out of stasis with material beginning to form various relationships, in the composer's words, "like musical components floating and rearranging themselves in a new order."
Plus works by Pauline Oliveros, Hilary Tann, Vera Ivanova, Baljinder Sekhon, JacobTV, and others; and performances by pianist Sarah Cahill, cellist Inbal Segev, violinist Kristin Lee, Ligeti Quartet, violinist Sini Virtanen and pianist Eunmi Ko, pianist Nic Gerpe, Red Line Saxophone Quartet, flutist Laura Lentz, and more.
Listen Sunday night from 8 to 10 on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9. Listen live at wsmr.org.
