Worth downloading: avant-garde art music edition

March 2nd, 2005  |  Tags:

Disquiet has linked a couple of gems in the last two days. First up is Hommage for cello and electronics, by Joan Jeanrenaud of Kronos Quartet fame. Then, go old-school by downloading an interview with Nicolas Slonimsky on Varèse’s Ionization, followed by an historic performance of the same. (Both links are to archive.org pages that have download links and background information.)

I’m currently listening to Scheidt: Canzon on “O Nachbar Roland” from the album “Instrumental Music of 1600 (Music by Gabrieli, Morley, Holborne, Scheidt and Others)” by Concentus Musicus Wien & Nikolaus Harnoncourt
