Zero Crossings – April 6, 2015, Friends and family

Today’s show featured an eclectic mix of great music by 11 composers, most of whom I know personally. I was joined in the studio by my 8 year-old son who was out sick from school, snickered in the background from time to time, and chose and announced the final track for the afternoon.

The music aired during the program included:
Frank Felice – 3 Pieces from Banff: 1. Patent Nonsense; 2 Winter’s Gloaming; 3. Impromptu, from Boyd, Kate: Music for the End of Winter
Theodore Wiprud – El Jaleo. from Love and Longing
Gene Pritzker – Piano Trio, Op. 239, from Trio Panta Rhei
Charles Coleman – Streetscape, from American Portraits
Carl Schimmel – Into Xylonia: I. Gleaming teak parquet, boundless, oceanic; II. Bubinga buttons and ash pegs bubble in clumps; III. Newelposts and dominoes jostle with alphablocks, caepitose and shrubby; IV. Ligneous tendrils bear fattening spindle tips, shooting about dowelsprout; V. Pyrgoidal Peppermills and Peglegs – Mammoth Axehandles – Titanic Biedermeier Bedstands; VI. From the barbicans flutter deckle and chads, tickertape and timbersplinters, crepe paper billowing like henin cloth, from Into Xylonia
Christopher Gable – Beat That Clock, from Zeitgesit: Here and Now
Alex Shapiro – Slipping, from Notes from the Kelp
Robert Raines – The Return of Odysseus: Athena Visits Ithaca; The Sirens; The Kingdom of the Dead; The Return of Odysseus; The Rooted Bed, from The Return of Odysseus (MSR Classics)
