There's music for solo strings, with and without voice on this edition of New Sounds. Sample from composer-violinist Michael Galasso's hypnotic, Baroque disc, Scenes. Plus, Yo-Yo Ma plays Mark O'Connor's Appalachia Waltz, a tune originally written for three instruments, and featuring double stops and drones, but sounds perfectly natural in a solo arrangement. Also on the program are selections by Phil Kline, Iva Bittova, Donna McKevitt and Derek Jarman.
