Psappha(OK, OK I know, the puns don’t come any worse than that…) No F.Z. music, but rather a reminder that The excellent U.K. ensemble Psappha (with help from Lancaster University and the BBC Singers) is in the middle of a great webcast series. You can watch and listen already to any of the pieces from the first two concerts, the third concert available March 31st.

Webcast #1 includes Larry Goves’ Four Letter Words, Gyorgy Kurtag’s Signs, Games and Messages and Scenes from a Novel, and Gyorgy Ligeti’s Aventures & Nouvelles Aventures. Webcast #2 is all Claude Vivier: his Et je reverrai cette ville etrange, Shiraz, Glaubst du an die Unsterblichkeit der Seele? and Journal. The final webcast offers Gordon McPherson’s Celeste Unborne, Edward Cowie’s Psappha Portraits, and Steven Mackey’s Five Animated Shorts.

    I couldn’t get it to play in the first link. If you have the same problem as me, click on “use external player” right below the play button. Going on to listen now.
