Podcast and live radio collide as ACM teams up with Open G Records the final Late Night concert of 2017: an intimate portrait of Pulitzer Prize winning composer Steven Stucky.
Stucky was one of the country’s most prolific and most performed composers, a talented educator, esteemed mentor and an indispensible part of twentieth century classical music.
This concert is also the release of a new album from Open G Records featuring World Premiere recordings of Stucky’s Piano Sonata, Violin Sonata, Piano Quintet, Piano Quartet and a Chorale written especially for pianist Xak Bjerken who performs on the album.
You’ll hear the quintet and violin sonata live and we’ll play a teaser of this stunningly well-recorded album as well.
Late Night at National Sawdust is a quarterly live taping of Relevant Tones, a contemporary music podcast hosted by Seth Boustead that will also be broadcast in real time on the nationally syndicated WFMT Radio Network and on WKCR in New York.
Live radio has never been so intimate.
The broadcast will be preceded by the Discovery Series, a process-oriented exploration of musical creativity led by composer/pianist Jeremy Gill. The composers chosen from a pool of more than five hundred are David S. Carter and Roger Briggs.
