Hear and Now: Baltic music in Canterbury - 11th June 2011
Niels Marthinsen: The Monkey - about 12" of mid-tempo, mid-register dramatics. Quite elegant and atmospheric but I didn't find a place in it.
Then, an interview with the Arhus Sinfonietta's charming conductor, Soren K Hansen.
Bent Sørensen: Deserted Churchyards - 8"
Interview the cellist, Jakob Kullberg, who's soloist in the next piece.
Per Nørgård (nier-gore!): Momentum - 30"
Simon Steen-Andersen: Praesens - 16"
Thomas Agerfeldt Olesen: Tonkraftwerk - 10"
I've listened to the first few minutes of the Nørgård but all of the music so far has seemed modern ensemble-squirty. May give the rest a go later in the week.
