From

Listen to music that deals with distance for this New Sounds program. Hear Joby Talbot’s orchestration of a White Stripes song, “Never Far Away,” along with music from Armenian-American Eve Beglarian and her piece written for cellist Maya Beiser, “I am writing to you from a far-off country.”  Then, listen to music from beyond the end of the earth – settings of poetry about the moon by Francis White.  Hear her work, “far, still” for chamber choir, cello, and electronics, which was commissioned by Seattle’s Solaris Vocal Ensemble and appears on their recent record, "Floodsongs".  Plus, music from Lisa Gerrard and Klaus Schulze, and more.
