December 2004 New Releases

The end of the month brings a bunch of new CDs to share on this New Sounds program. Host John Schaefer highlights some of the recent arrivals that have crossed his desk in the past month. Listen for plenty of accordion music - from Gagaku-ish sustains to tangos to Guy Klucevsek, a bit of dance music by Miguel Frasconi, and selections from Margaret Leng Tan's new recording of music for amplified piano by George Crumb.
