Winter Songs

« previous episode | next episode »

Monday, January 29, 2007

Almost no one’s favorite season, and yet it has inspired lots of evocative new music, including works by Aulis Sallinen, Wendy Carlos, Glen Moore, Edgar Meyer, and Dino Saluzzi. New Sounds goes deep freeze for this hour with music by David Byrne, the Modern Mandolin Quartet with Edgar Meyer, and perhaps Ralph Towner as well.
