For this New Sounds program, listen to a suite of pieces by Caroline Shaw, a member of the vocal ensemble, Roomful of Teeth. All of the movements in her suite are named after baroque dance forms, how J.S. Bach and other baroque composers might have done.  Hear those forms echoed in the music of Paul Lansky, and Ralph Towner, along with lute player and composer Rolf Lislevand, and the late Englishman Jon Lord. And more.
