50 years ago this week, Igor Stravinsky left our world. In this special Music Of Memory-themed program, we explore the memorial works written for him upon his death, pay our respects to the late Simon Bainbridge (1952–2021), and continue the theme of remembrance with new works by Antti Auvinen (based on old 78s of Finnish sopranos) and Lukas Ligeti (based on stories and songs from several generations of Polish Jews). As a bonus, Lukas joins us for an interview about his project.
We’ve also got a special set for headphone aficionados, featuring Michael Gordon’s new spatially-extended piece for 8 cellos, coupled with a pan-heavy electronic work by Steve Layton, and a new binaural recording of Partch's The Bewitched. Plus we begin our traversal of William Parker’s new 10-CD box set, and sample the latest albums by Błoto, Brian Ferneyhough, Tansy Davies, Alex Paxton, Agnese Toniutti & The House of Bedlam (with Larry Goves). Radical new music from the Northwest and beyond with Mike Schell
