Weekly Digest – new recordings for fall
September 6, 2012
In honor of John Cage’s birthday, I decided to stay silent yesterday, but I’m now back to provide you with this week’s weekly digest, which will feature some new recordings that
might should be of interest to you. These are all well-recorded, well-performed albums of new, yet generally accessible, classical music.
Tin Hat – the rain is a handsome animal (18 songs from the poetry of e. e. cummings)
This can be streamed for free from the New Amsterdam website. I plan on discussing this music more in an upcoming blog post.
Matthew Rosenblum – Circadian Rhythms
This album features Rosenblum’s unique approach to microtonal music and includes performances on the actual Harry Partch instruments.
and finally, this Tuesday saw the release of not one, but TWO new albums by Grammy-winners Eighth Blackbird
For this month’s digital music link, I came across this post discussing Spotify’s business model.
