New Concert Music


For this New Sounds, we'll hear from violist and Q2 host Nadia Sirota's record called "First Things First," of commissioned works by Judd Greenstein, Nico Muhly and other new music heavy-hitters involving her instrument and other sounds.  We'll also hear from the Kronos Quartet's effort, "Floodplain." This record is full of music from Serbia, Azerbajan, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, and Lebanon, incorporating other sounds, live and taped.  Plus, Valentin Silvestrov's "Ikon" performed by the Cailino Quartet, and more.
