Composer Talk is back on August 24

23 08 2013

Tune in Saturday, August 24, 2 PM to 4 PM CT to “Composer Talk” with your hosts Chris Becker and Hsin-Jung Tsai.

On this edition of “Composer Talk” we’ll be playing and discussing selections from Pat Metheny’s recent recording “Tap: John Zorn’s Book of Angels,” Ayelet Rose Gottlieb’s “Mayim Rabim,” an evocative song cycle based on texts from the erotic Biblical love poems Song of Songs.

Moreover, we are going to play new music from Taiwan — introducing three female composers and their compositions:  Ling-Huei Tsai’s Concerto for Foot-Pressed Drums, Chih-Chun Lee’s Typenkeng and Shihsanhang and Mei-Fang Lin’s Image Reconstitute.

“Composer Talk” is the red headed stepchild of Scordatura, the Houston area’s source for new directions in contemporary classical music and sound.

“Composer Talk” streams live at ktru.org and in high definition at 90.1 HD-2.
