CBC broadcasts Michael Snow / Jesse Stewart concert

CBC has finally announced a broadcast date for the Michael Snow / Jesse Stewart concert that was recorded at the National Gallery in March.

You can hear it on The Signal at 10 p.m. on Friday, June 11.

As CBC says: "Michael Snow has also had a long career as a pianist working first in jazz and later with free improvisation. In this concert, Snow showcases his musical skills in partnership with percussionist and Carleton University professor, Jesse Stewart. Jesse, who is also a visual artist, plays everything from drum kit to waterphone as he interacts with and inspires music from his partner."

The concert is already up for streaming on the CBC website at http://www.cbc.ca/radio2/cod/concerts/20100318msnow , if you don't want to wait for the radio.

Your  OJS editors heard the concert live and found it exhilarating. The audience was utterly quiet, engrossed in the music. Recommended.
