8/30 Composer Talk at 2 pm KTRU

30 08 2014

Tune is this Saturday, August 30, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m CT to “Composer Talk,” with your hosts Chris Becker and Hsin-Jung Tsai. We’ll be featuring music by Susie Ibarra, Samantha Boshnack, Rebecca Oswald , Hilary Tann, and Jennifer Fowler.   

Rebecca Oswald composed the music and wrote the narration for Aesop’s Fables in 1999.  This spirited suite for woodwind quintet with narrator recounts 5 of Aesop’s well-loved tales.  In this unique recording, the 5 fables come to life through vivid music and expressive narration; and each concludes with its timeless and well-known lesson. 

Also, we are going to feature two pieces (Three Cellos and Threaded Stars) by Jennifer Fowler, who was born in Australia and is living in London, and two pieces (On Ear and Ear … and Nothing Forgotten) by Hilary Tann. 

“Composer Talk” streams LIVE at ktru.org.
