The Verge

The Verge is music that hates to be classified, music that crosses boundaries, and new music by 20th and 21st Century composers.


Sunday evening September 1 from 7:00 to 9:00 CT, on The Verge:

 

For the Labor Day weekend, some Americana on The Verge, but also music connected to work and labor with music about a taxi driver, about harvest, a law practice...and a play on the "working class" in an album of classical pieces by former Beatle Paul McCartney titled Working Classical.

Relax and hear something new on The Verge this Sunnday at 7pm CT

Sunday evening September 8 from 7:00 to 9:00 CT, on The Verge

A couple pieces on tonight's playlist play with time, the idea of time in our lives and the feel of time signatures in music. A piece by composer Mary Jeanne Van Appledorn equates miniatures or character pieces with postcards. Plus we'll hear a selection from the Brookly Rider album Almanac in which they collaborate with singer Shara Worden who is better known to some as My Brightest Diamond. The track they perform was inspired by David Byrne.

Or, try watching a 360 video recorded with our NET team, violinist Hyeyung Yoon and dancer Hye-Won Hwang. Originating from the Korean heritage of both performers, Hye-Won adapts the traditional Korean dance known as Salp’uri to Hyeyung’s performance of Bach’s Adagio from Sonata No. 1 in G minor. You can see that on Youtube by clicking here.
