A Musical Travelogue (special podcast)


There’s an hour of music for far-off places on this New Sounds program.  Listen to a work written by Princeton professor Paul Lansky, called “Travel Diary.”  From a new recording by the Meehan/Perkins Duo, the work is a "kind of meditation on travel particularly for those who don't do it that much." Parts were inspired by an actual cross-country trip taken by the composer and his family, wrong turns and a younger child asking "Are we there yet?"

Plus, music from Nico Muhly  - a musical depiction of Balinese-style gamelan music and more.
