William Anderson and Oren Fader perform Babbitt's "Soli e Duettini".
CUNY seems to have been a haven for performer's of Babbitt's music, theorists about Babbitt's music, and students of Babbitt himself. This 5/10, on what would have been his 95th birthday, we will celebrate this relationship. We will hear:
Babbitt's Composition for Four Instruments, Danci, My Ends Are My Beginnings, A Lifetime or So, and Soli e Duettini (guitar version), performed by such as Charlie Neidich, William Anderson, Oren Fader, Robert White, Patricia Spencer, Chris Gross, and Josh Modney.
A talk by Joe Straus on Babbitt's Danci.
And compositions by four former students of Babbitt who are now at CUNY - Jeff Nichols, Dan Colson, Cynthia Wong, and Zack Bernstein.
