Angles of Repose on Now is the Time
It’s geology and music on Now is the Time, Sunday, October 7th at 10 pm. When you’re on the verge of slipping down a hill, you’re flirting with the angle of repose, and Ethan Wickman slides all around it on this Zeitgeist CD. An intercalation is a time insertion (such as February 29th) or an unexpected layer between strata, and Richard Wilson plays with those ideas in his piano work.
James Aikman’s third violin sonata is on his album Tremors from a Far Shore; the middle fantasia is three times as long as the outer movements, yet its tectonic motion is graceful in its certainty.
Now is the Time means American contemporary music on WRTI-HD2 and the all-classical stream at wrti.org.
