Music

With Michael Schell

Creative and improvised music from the Northwest and around the world with host Michael Schell. Seattle’s finest and longest-running radio program devoted to the musical avant-garde.

Blood in the snow

Italy’s foremost living composer channels his inner Chopin while ruminating on the rubble of modern warfare. We'll explore this gripping new work by Salvatore Sciarrino, and lament how its thematic scope—triggered by the war in Ukraine—has been tragically expanded by current events.

On a more hopeful note, we preview upcoming Seattle appearances by Todd Sickafoose at Earshot Jazz and Steve Coleman, Anthony Tidd and Miles Okazaki at Emerald City Music. We've also got ceremonial percussion music from Missy Mazzoli, an unorthodox big band chart from Steve Lehman, and a gory Alaska travelogue from Yotam Haber. We sample dark ambient from Sweden that features a traditional keyed fiddle, plus a bit of noise music from Glasgow. And we honor an underappreciated sonorist masterwork by György Ligeti for its 50th anniversary.
