Beethoven beneath the surface

Extra Eclectic - June 5, 2024

Beethoven lurks in the melodies and motifs in this week’s edition of Extra Eclectic, with modern works that quote, refer to or otherwise honor compositions by ol’ Ludwig van. Host Steve Seel showcases works by Anna Clyne, Timo Andres, and Jonathan Dove. In the show’s second hour, Seel brings us works that approach the piano as a percussion instrument (or something else entirely), or conversely, music for tuned percussion. Listen now!
