Alternative Rock | Label: [PIAS], Pixies Music

A pioneering indie-rock band continues its comeback streak. More sure-footed—and fun—than 2014’s Indie Cindy, Head Carrier bears the hallmarks of classic Pixies: Weird yet pretty, violent yet tender, and as reliant on sweet ‘60s harmonies as the rough edges of post-punk. See the oblique surf rock of “Classic Masher” (which could’ve made the band’s underrated Bossanova) or the rangy, folk-influenced “Tenement Song,” which harkens back to Doolittle.

In the 15th and 16th centuries, the Royal court resided from time to time in the Loire Valley. Its châteaux were the showcase for an intense musical life. These palaces which have since become the emblems of the French Renaissance resounded to music that today s artists have rediscovered in concert and on record. Drawing widely on that repertoire, this programme is an evocation of the round of pleasures, festivities, hunts and dances that regulated the days and nights of the court of France, and of the joyous life that reigned there for decades.

The music on this recital was specifically written or arranged for duo violinists Angela and Jennifer Chun. It highlights the personal and professional connections between Philip Glass and Nico Muhly, a longtime colleague and admirer of Glass's work. Glass's miniaturist works, Mad Rush and In the Summer House, create a maximum effect when paired with Muhly's minimalist Four Studies and Honest Music.
