In addition to his many performances and recordings, New York-based composer/saxophonist Patrick Zimmerli runs a concert series featuring his own genre-bending band, Emergence. We hear a sample of his work in the rhythmically flowing "Stone and Steel" for Cello, Piano, and Percussion. Also, a track from Hélène Grimaud's new Bach CD, as well as offerings from the Turtle Island String Quartet, Clarice Assad, and others.
