Between the New York Philharmonic Biennial and the Nørgård in New York festival, Danish composer Per Nørgård has gotten a lot of attention in the U.S. in the last couple of weeks. I missed posting this podcast episode here because I’m a forgetter. Take a listen to our conversation with two of the proprietors of the Nørgård in New York festival. If you can explain the Infinity Series to me using small words and visual aids, I would really appreciate it.
Please excuse my mental mixup of Dennis Johnson and Ben Johnston: similar names, but musical opposites.
When you’re done listening to the interview and laughing at my dumbness (thanks to the panel for not pointing it out in realtime!), listen to some Nørgård. I’m a big fan of the quartets.
