Composer Caroline Shaw
From

Hear new music based on baroque forms like passacaglias, bourrees and courantes on this New Sounds.  Hear a passacaglia from Caroline Shaw, the Pulitzer Prize-winning NYC-based composer from her “Partita for 8 Voices,” a suite of many dance forms. This winning work was written for the vocal group Roomful of Teeth, who are themselves a high wire act of balance between world music, rock 'n' roll, and derring-do. There’s also a toccata for Indonesian gamelan, along with contemporary takes on the 400 year old Italian dance form - the passacaglia- from Danish lute player Rolf Lislevand, and more.
