(Sarah Kate Kramer/WNYC)

Hear new music from accordionist, keyboard player, and composer Ted Reichman, focusing on connections between improvisation and various forms of folk, popular music, and jazz. Also, there's mysterious music from Austrian multi-instrumentalist and composer Werner Pirchner for accordion.  Then, hear Kronos Quartet together with accordion adventurer Kimmo Pohjonen and sampling guru Samuli Kosminen.  The live strings and electric accordion plus effects and manipulations create a new, multi-dimensional sound world. That, and more.
