May Lentz? Lentz May

Postclassic Radio‘s May Composer of the Month – Flavor of the Month? – is Daniel Lentz, naturally. He’s got too much really compelling music that’s been out for too long, and friends of mine whom I consider new-music mavens remain inexplicably unacquainted with it. Richard Friedman reminded me, though, that the station hasn’t yet aired any Giacinto Scelsi, which I immediately remedied. And there are two new string quartets up, the Fourth (“Beneath thy tenderness of heart”) by George Tsontakis, a really lovely work, and a 2004 quartet by young Dutch composer Renske Vrolijk, who proved so popular last September that I’ve been haranguing her to send more music. And some other stuff.
