Wordless Music Part 1

The Wordless Music Series pairs rock and electronic musicians with more traditional chamber and new music performers, to create an entirely new concert experience. WNYC presents four one-hour specials that highlight the ground-breaking '07-'08 season, hosted by Radiolab's Jad Abumrad.

The Wordless Music Series on WNYC was written and produced by Jonathan Mitchell. Support for this program comes, in part, from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Mihailova/Electrik Company/Do Make Say Think/Greenwood

Kyrgyzstani pianist Katya Mihailova takes on Chopin; Rock quartet Electric Kompany performs music by Jacob TV; Toronto-based indie band Do Make Say Think bring their own brand of eclectic music to the stage, and we hear the US premiere of Radiohead lead guitarist Jonny Greenwood's "Popcorn Superhet Receiver for String Orchestra." Jad Abumrad hosts, joined by composer David Lang, winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize in Music.
