Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Take a new look at early music on this New Sounds program.  Listen to selections from the Luce Trio, involving Indian Shruti box, saxophone, electric guitar and bass.  Their album is based based on and/or inspired by music of past centuries, both originals and reworkings. Also, there's music from the Irish music production company, Ergodos, based on the German hymn, Ich ruf zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ by J.S. Bach.  Then, listen to Gregorian chant, remixed, by vocal group New York Polyphony, using alto and bass recorders, tin whistle, and violin.  Plus, music by Brian Eno, riffing on Pachelbel's Canon, and more.
