Over the years, WNYC has played host to some truly remarkable performances that never saw the light of day on a commercial recording. All the better reason to tune into this edition of New Sounds, as we feature a variety of live performances from the New Sounds vaults. The World Saxophone Quartet, Philip Glass, Paul Neubauer and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and the Uptown String Quartet are among the show's highlights.
