Alejandro Viñao - Children of Nancarrow (2004)

This radio programme is about the Children of Nancarrow, the composers who came after him and have been influenced by his music or, perhaps even more so, by his ideas. This post Nancarrow generation took off where Nancarrow's piano etudes left to explore in different directions the issue of multiple simultaneous tempi. During the programme I play and discuss selected movements or complete pieces by these composers. Alejandro Viñao

thx for posting this, bravo juju. since i 1st heard nancarrow's studies, i'm a dedicated fan. i don't know many composers who are influenced by nancarrow, and of those i only know a few i'm interested in: tenney is one of them, amirkhanian another.

the list of excerpts on this radio program doesn't really blow me away with interest, to be sure - but with 96 kbps the file is small enough to give it a try.

I enjoy these didactic programs in which the authors treat me as the childish and ignorant listener that I am. Some of the names I know in the list did not seem that exciting, but on the other hand pieces like Alvarez' or Francesconi's really paid off.

Glad you liked this.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
