It's a taste of Americana on this edition of New Sounds. We hear concert music inspired by contemporary American popular culture, including Michael Daugherty's "Elvis Everywhere" (1993), recorded on Nonesuch by the Kronos Quartet; Randall Woolff's techno-country chamber orchestra work "Hee Haw"; Ben Neill's "Money Talk" for mutantrumpet, electronics, percussion, and tape; and Phillip Bimstein's "Casino." The works' titles describe it all.
