The Young, the Political

New on Postclassic Radio this week: Jenin, by Frank Abbinanti, an hour-long, partly improvisatory piano work. Abbinanti is a political composer somewhat in the Rzewski mold, and a Chicago associate of the late Cornelius Cardew. I’ve uploaded some tracks from Phil Kline’s new CD Zippo Songs, with found texts from Vietnam GI’s, and a couple of pieces by Eve Beglarian that aren’t commercially available yet. Also, music by two composers in their early twenties, John Brady and Bernard Gann (no relation to me, aside from direct descent).
