Milton Babbitt Retrospective At The CUNY Graduate Center

14/05/2012
May 25 2012
The CUNY Graduate Center Music department, in collaboration with The Composers' Alliance, will stage an evening in memory of the life and works of Milton Babbitt, the giant of the American music scene who died last year at the age of 94. The evening will feature a number of his works performed by some of his closest collaborators, including flautist Patricia Spencer, guitarists Oren Fader and William Anderson, clarinettist Charles Neidich and soprano Judith Bettina.

Babbitt, a trained mathematician, built on an early fascination with the Second Viennese School and twelve tone music to create his own unique compositional voice which became a byword for rigourous and engaging technique. In an academic careeer spanning 40 years he taught a number of prominent music theorists and composers, including Stephen Sondheim, and achieved widespread and unwanted notoriety for his article 'Who Cares If You Listen?', a defense of serious composition.

More information on the event can be found at The Composers' Alliance website.
