The New Lieder


For this New Sounds, we'll sample the extended tradition of the classical art song into the world of contemporary music and listen to a whole slew of new songs for the 21st century.  We'll hear from Emily Wells, Christine Fellows, and some new takes on songs by Charles Ives.  Plus, music from Rachel Unthank/Robert Wyatt, the Cesarians, Gabriel Kahane, and more.
