Rather, the guiding principle will be four musicians, playing everything from marimba to mandolin. Hear from the electric guitars of Dither Quartet, along with music from the Prism Sax Quartet (saxophones). Then there's music from the Brooklyn-based percussion quartet Ensemble et al, - whose members "take a garage band approach" to chamber works, minimalism, modal jazz, and instrumental rock- on marimba, vibraphone, glockenspiel, and drum set. (The KISS t-shirt in some of their online photos does wonders to set their tone.)
9:00 The Early Muse with Ian Capps. Masters and Students: Giovanni Gabrieli. Andrea Gabrieli handed both his job as organist and his legacy as developer of split choral music and brass ensembles to his nephew Giovanni after the latter returned to St. Mark’s from Munich in 1584.

On his latest, “Things You Already Know,” homemade instruments of propane tank drums, bowed psaltery and singing bowls are combined with guitars, cellos and drums to creep, scrape and eventually burst, then string melodies soar, and jams are proverbially kicked out. Then, hear music by composer-soprano Kate Soper from her recent “Voices from the Killing Jar,” written between 2010 and 2012 for the Wet Ink Ensemble (of which she is a part.)  The title refers to the tool that kills insects without damaging their bodies. This album depicts a series of female protagonists caught in their own kinds of killing jars—Daisy from The Great Gatsby, Lady Macduff from Macbeth, and May Kasahara (a Haruki Murakami character), to name a few. Plus, a bit more of the orchestral score for the remarkable film "Visitors," the fourth collaboration between Godfrey Reggio and Philip Glass, who previously worked together on the "Qatsi" trilogy.

4:00 Harmonia with Angela Mariani. Eye Music, Ear Candy. Don’t you hate it when you’re not “in” on an in-joke? We’ll let you in on the humor in some of the earliest and wittiest examples of “eye music,” where the punchlines are hidden on the page for the performers to enjoy – and the audience has absolutely no idea.

7:00 Singing and Other Sins with Gary Hickling. French Song vs French Opera. Many people assume that since many opera singers perform melodie that there’s not a lot of difference between that and opera. We’ll disabuse you of that thought!
8:00 New Sounds  The Altered Sound of the Piano  You won't be hearing Chopin or Rachmaninov - the very recognizable instrument is featured in unrecognizable ways tonight, but John Schaefer will guide you through works for solo piano and for duos and trios of battling pianos that are prepared, strummed, processed, or re-tuned. George Crumb's "Eine Kleine Mitternachtmusik" is his take on Thelonius Monk's famous "Round Midnight" that has the pianist strum inside the instrument. The pianist also has multiple roles in Justin Merritt's "Quiet Land" as he/she must whistle along, strum, and hit the piano strings with the eraser end of a pencil. Something will sound off to your Western ear when you hear John Corigliano's "Chiaroscuro." The two pianos are tuned a quarter tone apart. That is halfway between the smallest interval we are used to hearing in music. Bruce Mather's "Poème du Délire" goes even further and has three pianos tuned a sixth tone apart. Also on this edition, music by Moon Ate the Dark and Oliver Messiaen.
9:00 The Early Muse with Ian Capps. The French Orchestra. We owe the creation of the full orchestra, and especially the string orchestra, largely to the 17th century French court. Italy at the same time was more oriented toward sophisticated chamber music and brilliant sonatas.

1:00 P.M. World of Opera BELLINI I Puritani. Olga Peretyatko (Elvira); John Tessier (Lord Arturo Talbo); Carlos Alvarez (Sir Riccardo Forth); Jongmin Park Sir Giorgio Valton); Sorin Coliban (Lord Gualtiero Valton); Carlos Osuna (Sir Bruno Robertson); Ilseyar Khayrullova (Enrichetta di Francia); Vienna State Opera Orch. & Chorus; Marco Armiliato, cond. When Bellini moved to Paris in the 1830s, he declared that French composers and audiences had “little understanding of real song.” He apparently decided to remedy that. I Puritani – Bellini’s first opera for Paris, and the last opera he composed before his death at age 33 – is blessed by a raft of his finest melodies.

4:00 Harmonia with Angela Mariani. Elegies. What’s the right way to commemorate loss? For many composers grappling with the death of a colleague or patron, the best memorial proved to be….music.

8:00 New Sounds  The Hilliard Ensemble Farewell  From the New Sounds Live concert series, recorded live at the Temple of Dendur in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, listen to the all-male band of British a cappella singers, The Hilliard Ensemble.  Founded in 1974 and named after the British miniaturist painter Nicholas Hilliard, this group has cut a distinct path in the fields of both old and new music. This concert was also a stop on their farewell tour, as the group disbanded in 2014, after 40 years together, performing music that spans the past millennium. The Hilliards may have come together initially to sing medieval and renaissance music, but works by living composers have featured in their programs since the start.  Hear their concert performances of music by Arvo Pärt, Alexander Raskatov, and others, along with an exclusive WNYC appearance from back in 1991.
9:00 The Early Muse with Ian Capps. Masters and Students: Tallis and Byrd. As a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal in London, Thomas Tallis must have mentored many other Elizabethan composers, but only William Byrd is clearly identified as a student and later close friend and business colleague.
