Tuesday, July 12 at 12 pm ET, Phil Kline presents an eclectic collection of music at the "Andriessen 75" festival as performed by vocalist Cristina Zavalloni, violinist Monica Germino and pianist Andrea Rebaudengo. With a wide range of Andriessen's works along with Stravinsky, Cage and influences from Paul McCartney and John Lennon, the concert took place at The Mansion at Strathmore in Washington, D.C. on April 8.
As a part of the celebration of the Dutch composer's life and work, the musicians played seven pieces by Louis Andriessen: Letter from Cathy, Base, Beatles Songs (satirical arrangements of four Beatles Songs), Xenia, Fanfara Inclinata, Le Voile du Bonheur, and Passeggiata in tram in America e ritorno, many of them composed in the 21st century. Igor Stravinsky's The Owl and the Pussycat, a twelve-tone piece based setting Edward Lear's poem of the same name, was also performed, as well as John Cage's Six Melodies for violin and piano.
