Messiah Remix

On this edition of New Sounds, hear compositions ranging from tuneful electronica to craggy modernism, from moody ambience to unbounded joy - all united by the theme of Messiah, George Frederic Handel's 1742 masterpiece of spiritual rebirth. Listen to new works inspired by the holiday original by Tod Machover, Scanner, and Paul Lansky, among others. Plus, innovative takes on other classics, like Uri Caine’s re-imagining of Mahler and Roger Kleier’s Schubertiade
