Max Reinhardt celebrates Cornelius Cardew
Max Reinhardt features an archive interview with composer Cornelius Cardew. Plus Afro-Venezuelan dance music from Family Atlantica and expressionist drone music from Amp Studio.
Max features an archive interview with the late British composer Cornelius Cardew who would have turned 80 this month. Speaking in 1972, Cardew explains the principles behind The Scratch Orchestra, an ensemble for all performers whether they have musical training or none at all. We'll also hear new music from Family Atlantica who draw on the traditions of Venezuela, Ghana and the UK; a mesmeric slice of Japanese pop from Wednesday Campanella and a re-issue from country singer and conceptual artist Terry Allen.
