Modern Notebook for February 25, 2024

Composer Julia Perry.
Composer Julia Perry.

On this week’s Modern Notebook with Tyler Kline: Just a fraction of the music written by composer Julia Perry survives in a way that we’re able to enjoy through performance and listening today. Born in Lexington, KY in 1924, she was a prolific composer whose work would eventually evolve into a highly European-influenced, post-modern style. Her 1969 “Violin Concerto” is no exception, and we will discover it on the next program.

Then: join Tyler for music and conversation as he’s joined by Anthony R. Green. Anthony is a composer, performer, and artist whose broad body of work comments on many issues related to social justice. A new work of his will be premiered in March while he is in residency with the Tampa-based Contemporary Art Music Project.

Listen for music by Carlos Simon, Allison Loggins-Hull, Millicent B James, Brian Dozier Brown, Shelley Washington, Yaz Lancaster, and others; and performances by flutist Jennifer Grim, violinist Curis Stewart with Experiential Orchestra, cellist Inbal Segev, Unheard-of//Ensemble, saxophonist Pat Posey, percussionist Yang Chen, and more.

That’s Sunday night from 8 to 10 on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9. Stream the show online at wsmr.org.
