Concert works inspired by non-Western traditions take center stage on this edition of New Sounds. Hear Lou Harrison’s "Threnody for Carlos Chavez," written for viola and gamelan ensemble, as well as a work by New Zealand’s Gareth Farr, who, like Harrison, draws on percussive influences of the Pacific. Then there’s music by composer Tunde Jegede, from his CD “Lamentation”, which incorporates both of the instruments he plays - the West African harp-lute known as kora and the European traditional classical cello. Also on tap is music by Armenian composer Tigran Mansurian.
