You can stream recordings of new music from the Library of Congress at WQXR’s website here. The diverse repertoire includes music by George Lewis, John Adams, Irving Fine, Jennifer Higdon, George Walker, and Nico Muhly, among others.
The phrase “LC listings” usually refers to library holdings that are categorized according to the standard classifications of the Library of Congress, but in this case, I want to call your attention to the listings of webcasts that the Library of Congress offers. Among the musical items that caught my eye are these:
– Steven Swayne on William Schuman’s Seventh Symphony
– Walter Frisch on early Schoenberg
– Judith Tick on Ruth Crawford Seeger
I haven’t yet had time to look at the above myself, so I make no claims for how interesting they might turn out to be. But the topics are certainly of interest.
