Abstract:

Music critic Tim Page interviews American contemporary classical music composer Libby Larsen. Larsen talks about her career and about her choice to locate in Minneapolis rather than on the East or West coasts. She notes that Minneapolis is the place where attitude toward contemporary works is very open to new music and that she can get her works played regularly because it does not require the kind of political networks necessary in New York or Los Angeles. Larsen says that she is one of eight composers involved in the Exxon-Rockefeller Meet the Composer/Composer-in-Residence program. She talks about the program and its success in programming American music. Larsen comments on women composers, and says women have been written out of music history largely because of sexism; but now, she says, we will see more women composers in the years to come. She gives advice to young women composers work hard and try to get your music performed; to listen to the performers. The composer also talks about choosing a musical language to write in. She says she isolated herself from academic institutions and decided to work solely with performers in order to find her own language. During her interview excerpts from her works In winter garden (words by Patricia Hampl), and Aubade are played.
