On this edition of New Sounds, listen to some new music involving orchestra, including works by the jazz/new music ensemble Oregon and rock singer Jon Lord (Deep Purple). Also from a recent collaboration, hear English classical violinist Nigel Kennedy together with the Polish group Kroke blending layers of violin, electric violin and klezmer-rooted music of Eastern Europe. Plus, a selection from Anglo-Egyptian singer Natacha Atlas, featuring orchestral strings written by Jocelyn Pook, rounds out the show.
