Adventures in Good Programming

Saturday, January 23, 2010 - 10:39 AM

Over the past few weeks we’ve been featuring music from artists nominated for Grammy Awards this year. The Grammy Awards are Sunday, Jan 31st. 

Last Sunday here in New York, Chamber Music America had its Annual Conference. Awards were given to chamber ensembles for "Adventurous Programming". This year's winners were Chris Byars, Alturas Duo, So Percussion and International Contemporary Ensemble.  If you're familiar with any of their music, please share your experience and your thoughts here.

Somewhat off topic, but I must say I just loved your laid back recap of "The Nose"...and I burst out laughing when you said, "The Nose will be running at the MET..."

VERY funny, Terrance, I do enjoy your humor! Loving the music, too.

Your programming is outstanding.....I have to stay awake until you're finished. It's wonderful that you bring new music & releases to the evening broadcast. Keep sharing....much appreciated.

Terrence, I love the crisp and refreshing array of sounds you meld together nightly. I am so proud to have the opportunity of experiencing a nubian brother revealing another example of brilliance that enriches the human family. Kudos to you and all who have influenced your style. Sincerely, Shadeed Ahmad (1-24-10)

I'm staying in for the night, and I just heard "Night Gatherers" by Judd Greenstein on your show. Wow. I have to say--I actually stopped what I was doing to listen. One of the most exciting, intriguing things I have heard in a *long* time. Wow! Thanks for sharing this one.
