Something Else // on the air
Charles Amirkhanian hosts a special edition of "Music From Other Minds": Fluxus visual artist and composer Henning Christiansen (1932-2008) composed his "Farewells Symphony" by altering a recorded concert given in Hamburg on November 29, 1985 by Joseph Beuys, Nam June Paik and the Danish composer. Christiansen's thought-provoking compositions, from chamber music to the happening-like material in his Abschiedssymphonie, Op. 177 (1985; 1987), are celebrated tonight.
