KTRU January 19, 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. CT for "Composer Talk" with your hosts Chris Becker and Hsin-Jung Tsai, two composers playing and talking about contemporary music. Just music and talk, you know, no big whoop.
This Saturday we'll be playing Joelle Wallach’s Organal Voices for vibraphone and bassoon, Ruth Lomon’s The Butterfly Effect for string quartet, and couple pieces from the album Seasons Ago, a collection of compositions by Alec Wilder performed by Joe LoCascio (piano) and Woody Witt (saxophone).
We'll also play a prerecorded interview Chris did with Roman Borys, cellist with the Gryphon Trio, and cabaret singer Patricia O'Callaghan, who sings with the Gryphon Trio on their latest recording Broken Hearts and Madmen.
O'Callaghan and the Gryphon Trio will be coming to Houston to perform together February 10. The trio performs again in Houston in a separate concert program of contemporary music February 12. For more information about these concerts, visit the Houston Friends of Chamber Music website.
