MUSICON 7 – 20th Century Music 3: The 1990s

11/02/2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free – £7

The Ives Ensemble present a programme of works from, and inspired by, the final decade of the 20th century.

Laurence Crane 20th Century Music

Tom Johnson Simultaneous Progressions

Kaija Saariaho Oi Kuu

Katharine Norman In the Stream

Carola Bauckholt In gewohnter Umgebung III

Starting with the last piece written in the 20th century (on 31 December 1999), this lunchtime concert dips its toes into the reach stream of musical languages that had developed by the last decade of the last millennium. Johnson’s strict mathematical methods result in an engaging and invigorating set of temporal patterns, while Saariaho’s pensively dramatic approach award us with a beautifully fleeting set of harmonic fields and contours. The textural finesse of Norman’s sonic landscapes, written at Princeton University in the early days of their computer music studio, are a great example of the musical ingenuity that was spurred forth by this event horizon of technological innovation, while Bauckholt’s trio for cello, piano, and video shows that contemporary music can have a great sense of humour too.
