Thursday, May 31, 2012

It's that time of the month again for our monthly program of new releases. John Schaefer once again picks through the spring flood of CDs that have been sent to his office to find new releases worthy of showcasing in tonight's program.  First, a remembrance of Portuguese pianist Bernardo Sassetti, who died earlier this month.  Then, hear new Swedish jazz electronica from e.s.t., which had been recorded before the pianist Estbjorn Svenson died in 2008.  It had languished unreleased in a studio in Sydney, Australia for four years. 

Also, hear some of the great new record from violinist Hilary Hahn & German pianist Hauschka, "Silfra."  Plus, a listen to the new record "Diagnostic" by Franco-Lebanese trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf and something from a compilation of new music from Italy.  That, and more.

Best new releases show, so far, this year-all good! Loved the Hahn/Hauschka piece.
