André de Ridder conductor
London Sinfonietta

This two-part series explores the extraordinary advances in sonic manipulation over recent years, from the maverick pioneers of the second half of the 20th century to spectral music of the 21st. Using quarter-tones to destabilise harmony and pulsing rhythms to obscure a sense of meter, yesterday’s composers opened up the possibilities for new directions in tuning and texture, a baton now passed to the mixed-media, computer-led, electronic composers of today.

Iannis Xenakis : Aroura
Claude Vivier : Zipangu
Georg Friedrich Haas : Open Spaces
