Episode dedicated to Jürg Frey


Jurg Frey’s Circular Music cycle is comprised of ten pieces composed between 2011-2017. To date eight of the pieces have been released on six CDs across several labels. Numbers four and ten have not seen a proper release. Of the eight pieces available, there are a total of 14 recordings, with multiple iterations of Circular Music #2, 5, 6 and 7. The composer himself performs on three of the pieces.

The compositions have been realized in a variety of contexts and instrumentation; piano solo, viola solo, saxophone quartet, quintet, sextet, septet, large ensemble and orchestra. Four of the works are heard in groupings of both orchestral and electronic instrumentation.

Some of the pieces are entitled ‘Extended Circular Music’, connoting Frey has revisited and reworked them in some fashion.

The next three episodes of the crow with no mouth radio podcast, the entire month of June, will be dedicated to this seemingly limitless cycle of compositions, and will include a few unreleased versions from the composer’s personal library.

The KOWS radio show air dates will be: June 2 / 16 / 30, 11:00 p.m. Pacific. As always, the programs will be available prior to their KOWS broadcast here on my Podomatic page.

The music you are hearing in this preview is Extended Circular Music #5, played by the stellar Konus Quartet.
