For this edition of New Sounds, we'll listen to larger ensemble pieces with multiple soloists.  First off, from a 1976 orchestra piece, we'll hear "Runes" by Keith Jarrett, with Jan Garbarek on saxophone, Charlie Haden on bass, and the composer at the piano.  Then there's music by drummer/composer Alex Cline for a 6-12 member ensemble, featuring Jeff Gauthier on violin.  Plus music from a soundtrack to the Merchant of Venice by Jocelyn Pook, with countertenor Andreas Scholl, and more.
