100 Episodes of Kairos: a talk with Programmer Wino Penris
Thursday November 1 at 23.00, The Concertzender broadcasts the 1OOth episode of Kairos. The programme’s compiler, Wino Penris, calls Kairos ‘a meditation on contemporary music’. Kairos episodes seem to be some sort of musical essays. How did you get that idea? The idea simply occurred to me. At first, I had a profile in mind of the sort of music I wanted to use. The profile itself was limited to terms like ‘contemporary, spiritual, profound’. As my experience grew, I began choosing the music more and more intuitively. And it turned out that much more was possible that way and that the programme formulated its own theme. If I only took care to hear it.
What’s playing ?
Dear Listeners, you’re very familiar with it: too much choice ! It can easily happen because of the overwhelming media choice at home. NPO, Spotify, Radio 4, Netflix all offer attractive small media chunks. And that doesn’t even include the less easily digestible fare: the longreads and the podcasts by NRC, the Correspondent and the Groene. So what to do with your spare time? I have a solution for you even though it will cause you yet more choice stress: Lotte Lenya. We’re currently broadcasting a superb radio documentary about her. It’s a two part series and made by our American programme maker and pianist Guy Livingston.

The unknown Rossini
At the start of the official opera season Gioachino Rossini (1792-1868) is composer of the month. In November Muziektheater is playing a series of performances of the Barber of Seville (1816). It’s Rossini’s most famous work and certainly not his only. Many works are less well-known. Time for the unknown Rossini.
Theme broadcast viola
In popularity the viola has to concede to the all powerful violin. But the deep rich sound of the instrument seduced more and more composers to write for the solo viola. In contemporary music there are a number of jewels for the viola. The upper tones and rich harmonic sound spectrum of the viola can be used. The spacious and generous sound of the viola is exploited. Tip: at the end of November 2018 in Rotterdam the International Viola Congress is taking place. On 24th October we’re broadcasting a theme-related programme about the viola. In the programme viola da solo lovely pieces for the viola are played. From a modern classic such as the ‘Sonata for viola solo’ by György Ligeti to a meditative upper scale spectacle by James Tenney and Eliane Radigue. The impressive viola exercises by the Swiss violinist Walter Fähndrich run through the broadcast as thread. When? Viola da Solo: Wednesday 24th October from 20.00 to 22.00.
