Polyphonic Perversity 7/15/2018

12-2pm on WXDU | playlist

A show devoted to music by Croatian composers, in honor of Croatia’s appearance in the 2018 World Cup final. Very little has been written in English about any of these composers. But, from what I could find out, Yugoslavia was much more culturally open than other parts of Eastern Europe, which allowed a vibrant musical scene to flourish in Zagreb. The city hosted the¬†Music Bienale Zagreb¬†beginning in 1961, hosting major compositional figures alongside local musicians.
