A counterpoint of instructive voices host this week on Hammered! as we pass the mic among a collection of composers who will introduce their own works for piano. Hear their musical secrets all week at 11 am and pm.

Really, who better to talk about a new piece than its composer? All week we'll hear composers like Ingram Marshall, Judd Greenstein, Christopher Cerrone and Lowell Liebermann (and that's just Monday!) talk about their music before hearing some of the most striking works being written today. Later in the week you'll be joined by Steve Reich, Missy Mazzoli, Jacob Cooper and Paola Prestini.

These composer introductions are a feature unique to Q2 Music and invaluable in providing a context for the great music you hear on this program. But we're still growing our composer intro library, so, if you could hear anyone introduce their own music, who would it be? 

Also, stay tuned later in the week for information about how you can pledge support in our Winter Fund Drive, and lastly keep your eyes peeled for details on -- not joking at all -- a festival of American Maverick music that is absolutely not to be missed ... all right here at Q2 Music.

Matt- You can always listen on the pop-up player, and then wander around the web site to see how things work. Alternatively, I use Winamp, I saved the link for .mp3 in Winamp. I do not often come to the web site, lots of us think that the old site was better, especially for comments. But, hey, you figured that out which is better than many.

Sorry, I find the Q2 part of this website very un-user-friendly to navigate. Maybe it's meant for the very computer-literate. I mainly want to listen to New Music, know what I'm listening to and know where it fits into the play list. Wish I could be more helpful. Thanks.
