A Classical A-Z – BBC
Written by marksmith on June 30, 2012
The past few weeks shows have featured some easily digestible music, especially last week which featured Brahms chamber music for clarinet. This weeks show is going to be quite a lot spikier and is brought to you by the letters BB&C. These letters don’t stand for the British Broadcasting Corporation but for three modern composers, Harrison Birtwistle, Pierre Boulez and Elliott Carter, each of whom has at times has been at the very forefront of modern music.
Harrsion Birtwistle – Night’s Black Bird
Pierre Boulez – Repons
Elliot Carter – Three Occasions for Orchestra
