Now over two decades running, the annual American Festival of Microtonal Music offers New Yorkers a feast of microtonal works - those which use pitches and musical scales not organized in the standard twelve tone to the octave equally tempered way. Host John Schaefer welcomes Johnny Reinhard, microtonal composer/bassoonist, who offers a collection of live performances of microtonal works by Giacinto Scelsi, Lou Harrison, Paul Erlich & Ara Sarkissian, David Eggar, and more.
