Also Sprach A Living Composer!
These episodes first aired the week of February 27, 2012
Monday, February 18, 2013
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.
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.
