Classical Classroom, Ep 37: George Heathco On Louis Andriessen And Alt-Classical

Louis Andriessen is one of the most important contemporary composers you've (probably) never heard of. His work isn't widely played because he's written many pieces for varieties of ensembles that don't exist. In fact, specially created ensembles have sprung up because of Andriessen's pieces, including the famous British ensemble, Icebreaker. Guitarist, composer, and co-founder of Liminal Space Contemporary Music Ensemble, George Heathco, teaches us all about Andriessen and his contributions to the alt classical movement. Or indie classical. Or whatever you wanna call it. Music used in this episode includes:Hoketus  by Louis AndriessenDe Materie  by Louis Andriessen (begins with 144 repetitions of same chord)De Staat  by Louis AndriessenYo Shakespeare  by Michael GordonPierced  by David Lang“Bone Chapel” from O Death by Oscar BettisonAudio production from Todd “Twinkles” Hulslander with very marginal oversight from Dacia Clay.
