Ever since Ezra Pound’s famous advice to young artists, “make it new!” there has been a renewed and relentless interest in breaking new ground in art and music. But what about composers who are genuinely inspired by older forms like fugues, rondos, capriccios, even rags? We’ll feature music by these “composers out of time”.
