Fusion and flowerpots. Music by Lou Harrison

Podcast published on May 16, 2017 in The Naxos Blog

In reference to A Lou Harrison Centenary Celebration

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of the American composer Lou Harrison, who distinguished himself through his pioneering works in writing for percussion and integrating Western and Eastern idioms. “Everything in the world should be considered a legitimate influence,” he said. In his music, however, the sounds of the largely percussive Javanese gamelan matured from an influence into a complete fusion. Raymond Bisha introduces a new disc of his works, performed by violinist Tim Fain, pianist Michael Boriskin, the PostClassical Ensemble and conductor Angel Gil-Ordóñez, who provides additional commentary.
