Listen to some music for Rosh Hashanah, (literally "head of the year"), the Jewish New Year, on this New Sounds program. Hear some music by Frank London of the Klezmatics, from his soulful collection of classic synagogue chanting (hazonos), scored for trumpet solo, harmoniums, glass harmonica and bass.   There's also music by Steve Reich, from "Tehillim, Part 3."  Plus, music by clarinetist Andy Statman and small ensemble music from John Zorn's Masada project.
