Sounds of Crepuscule

Saturday, October 06, 2012

We live through it everyday but "crepuscule" isn't a word most of us ever use. It means twilight, and host Terrance McKnight came across the term when listening to a Thelonious Monk recording. He then discovered several other composers using the same term and evoking a similar mood in composition.  

On this program we'll hear three works with that title and we take a look at Central Park after crepuscule through the ears of Charles Ives. We also hear organist Cameron Carpenter from a performance he gave in The Greene Space. Plus, the weekly music mix.
