Earlier this month, we had a few renowned contemporary musicians in the studio doing radio interviews with stations all over the country.
The first being Anthony de Mare, a contemporary pianist whose versatility has inspired the creation of over 60 new works by some of today's most distinguished artists, especially in the speaking-singing piano genre, which he pioneered over 25 years ago with the premiere of Frederic Rzewski's groundbreaking 'De Profundis.' Anthony de Mare has been praised by the New York Times for his "muscularly virtuosic, remarkably uninhibited performance [and] impressive talents."
The other artist being interviewed was cellist Matt Haimovitz, whose music brings a fresh ear to familiar repertoire, champions new music, and initiates groundbreaking collaborations as well as creating innovative recording projects for Oxingale Records. Through his visionary approach, Matt Haimovitz is re-defining what it means to be an artist in the 21st century.
