« previous episode | next episode »

Thursday, April 28, 2005

This New Sounds programs offers more lullabies – a whole hour of nocturnal works by Meredith Monk, Natacha Atlas, Taj Mahal, Harold Budd, and many others. From a new recording with the Brodsky Quartet, hear Meredith Monk’s wordless invocation, “Gotham Lullaby.” Also, listen to “Adam’s Lullaby,” a collaboration between English composer Jocelyn Pook and singer Natacha Atlas, whose Arabic vocals are lushly enveloped by the Prague Symphony Orchestra. Plus, lullabies from the Balanescu Quartet inspired by "Romania’s Edith Piaf," Maria Tanase.
