The term zither is also used generically for various instruments, including the dulcimer, the psaltery, and several Asian instruments. Its broad range of uses and remarkable adaptability has made it a favorite of composers and performers the world over. On this edition of New Sounds, we hear music for zithers from Michael Atherton, Shivkumar Sharma, Laraaji, Mecca Bodega, and Stephan Micus, among others.
