A weekly exploration of the most fascinating time in classical music history: right now.
With composers from nearly every country in the world creating music in diverse styles, there has simply never been a more exciting time for classical music. Relevant Tones creator and host Seth Boustead dives into this treasure trove of music accompanied by first-person interviews, in the field segments that take him to festivals and concert halls around the world, with stellar performances by talented ensembles and soloists.
Vanishing New York
Jeremiah Moss’ book, Vanishing New York inspired this program featuring the music of New York City composers who were an important staple of the ’70’s and ’80’s scene but were taken too soon. We’re honoring Julius Eastman, Arthur Russell, Tui St. German Tucker, and Ronald Roxbury by representing their works and stories.
Old is new again as composers and performers return to the LP format for their latest releases. We’re dusting off our record player to feature a variety of new music released on vinyl including works by Bryce Dessner and Frank Zappa; performances by Brooklyn Rider, Yarn/Wire, and Kronos Quartet.
