Australia's surprising and flexible new music ensemble, Topology, comprised of saxophone, strings and piano, takes center stage on this New Sounds program.  We'll hear chamber works by American and Australian composers, some in the vein of the perpetual motion machines, all performed by Topology.  Plus, other works by Americans living and working in Australia.
