The results are in for the 17th annual New Sounds Listener Poll, spotlighting the best new-music releases of 2002. Sorting through the respones, a lot of things leap to life. What particularly stands out are the number of veteran artists who ranked high this year - distinguished names like the Kronos Quartet, Philip Glass, Yo-Yo Ma, and Peter Gabriel. And yet, lesser-knowns like Michelle DiBucci, John Luther Adams, and SAVAE also had a good year. Regardless, there was plenty of diversity and brilliance in evidence, as we hear on this evening's program. Thanks to all of the listeners who voted.
