Tanglewood Music Center Chamber Concerts: Highlights from the Festival of Contemporary Music
August 9, 2020 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PMFree
Highlights from the Festival of Contemporary Music
Hosted by Norman Fischer, with special guest Michael Gandolfi
Tanglewood’s longtime commitment to new music reaches its peak each summer with the Festival of Contemporary Music, a focal point not only for presenting this music for audiences, but for immersing TMC Fellows in the diverse music of the present and recent past. In 2018 and 2019, BSO Artistic Partner and musical polymath Thomas Adès served as Director of the FCM, and all three of Mr. Adès’ musical guises are featured on this broadcast: as composer in Court Studies from his opera The Tempest, as conductor in Francisco Coll’s Four Iberian Miniatures, and as pianist in his own arrangement of Nancarrow’s Studies 6 and 7. Coll’s piece and Ruth Crawford Seeger’s String Quartet feature the New Fromm Players, the TMC’s new music ensemble in residence, supported by a grant from The Fromm Foundation.
