October Wind on June Composer Talk

28 06 2014

On this edition of “Composer Talk” Hsin-Jung and Chris Becker we’ll be featuring the music of Erik Satie, piano pieces by composer/pianist Rebecca Oswald, and Continuum for solo piano by Gyorgy Ligeti.

Chris will be bringing his vinyl copy of “Socrate” to the studio, and will try to find some other deep cuts from the man (E. Satie) who did a lot more than write “Gymnopedies No. 1.”  I (Hsin-Jung) will be introducing female composer/pianist Rebecca Oswald’s two CDs, “October Wind” (2005)and “Whereas” (2011).

Composer/pianist Rebecca Oswald has explored many different styles of music.  Her orchestra album Light and Shadow (2011, PARMA recordings) is one of Scordatura Show’s favorites.   Her music is full of surprises and images, with her subtle and unique sense of sounds and forms.  From 1981 to 1995 she worked as a solo pianist, accompanist, band keyboardist, and studio musician in Houston.  She is currently living in Eugene, Oregon.
