Hausmusik - Literally


For this New Sounds, we'll hear music made with stuff around the house.  There are two works for teapots, one by clarinetist Andy Statman and the other a Beatles' tune.  Paul Lansky samples his sons beating pots and pans for "Table's Clear," while Pulitzer Prize-Winning composer David Lang writes music for teacups to be struck by So Percussion.  Plus, hear music for onions, and other innovative ways of putting household items in the service of music.
