For this New Sounds, listen to works for piano.  There's a disquieting nocturne by Christopher Cerrone, called “Hoyt Schermerhorn,” performed by pianist/composer Timo Andres, chased by a work by Timo Andres himself. Also, listen to Takashi Kako’s music and its echoes of Debussy, along with a work for piano and Peter Machajdik, featuring a cameo by a bass clarinet.  Then, sample a work by the Greek composer based in Canada, Constantine Caravassilis called "to a Galliform Marionette." That, and more.
