We hear Nico Muhly's chamber work for the Now Ensemble, "How About Now" — which begins tentatively but soon morphs into a dancelike melange that bears a salutatory resemblance to the music of Steve Reich. Also, the Borodin String Quartet essay Schubert's Quartettsatz, and master of the bandoneón Dino Saluzzi teams up with the Rosamunde Quartet for his own "Cruz del Sur."

Paul Lansky / Semi-Suite
