For this New Sounds, we'll hear music from the late Bo Hansson of Sweden, who was known for his progressive rock record based on the Lord of the Rings, back in the early days of the show (when cavemen roamed the earth.)  However, since then, Hansson had written a string quartet and some lovely choral music besides.  We'll listen to some of these works and revisit German keyboard player and electronic music master Klaus Schulze, sampling some of his classic material and some of his most recent works.
