CHORAL CONCERT, with host Peter Togni Sunday, September 2, 2012 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2

Old Music, New Music and nothing in between

This week on Choral Concert Peter Togni will bring us some of the earliest choral works known, but he will also bring us some 20th century choral classics. It’s either old or new, but nothing in between.

There’s a wonderful similarity between these two worlds, as if for many composers the complexity of the music of the 18th and 19th century just disappeared in the 20th, and the celebration of simplicity became the common ground between the old and the new. From the music of Hildegard von Bingen, the earliest known composer of western music to the contemporary sounds of Jan Garbareck and his improvising saxophone, choral concert will span one thousand years in a few moments.

You will also hear the music of Josquin Des Pres, Ralph Vaughn Williams, Thomas Tallis and Carl Orff.

Don’t forget that CBCMUSIC.CA has lots to offer for classical music lovers, there are 10 classical streams, available 24 / 7. You can also check out the Choral Concert blog plus extensive videos and concerts in all genres.
