New Releases, February 2011


It's that time again for the monthly program of new releases. John Schaefer picks through the boatloads of CDs that have flooded his inbox to find new releases worthy of showcasing in tonight's program. We'll hear from the new double-release by Todd Reynolds, "Outerborough," a collection of both his own works and pieces written for him by other folks.  Also, hopefully we will sample music from Corsican singers performing Tibetan music, Brooklyn-based Balkan brass band music, and a string quartet for extended just intonation.
