Boston Musica Viva with composers John Harbison and Michael Gandolfi

This afternoon at 3pm on 89.7 and later this evening at 10pm on All-Classical WGBH, you can hear Boston Musica Viva, with their director, Richard Pittman, perform in our Fraser Performances Studio. Michael's music is always filled with rhythmic urgency and instrumental color, and any chance to hear John Harbison's music is sure to bring depth and meaning. Both composers will be in our studio, so I hope you can tune in. BMV begins their new season tomorrow night at the Tsai Performance Center in Boston.

Update (Sept. 28): Due to rights restrictions, I've removed the text for The Seven Ages, but the poems by Louise Gl├╝ck used by John Harbison include

I. THE SEVEN AGES

II. THE BALCONY

III. DECADE

IV. AUBADE

V. SUMMER NIGHT

VI. FABLE
