Program 529: Henry Brant
KALW Broadcast Date: September 14, 2018 | Host: Liam Herb
Henry Brant (1913-2008) was an American composer, orchestrator, conductor and organist. He is best known for creating the genre of spatial music, which involves positioning groups of performers in specific locations, both on stage and throughout the concert hall. This program features many of Brant’s lesser known works, including his spatial piano concerto Inside Track and his Jazz Clarinet Concerto, which was written for (but never performed by), Benny Goodman.
