Opening the Chamber Music

« previous episode | next episode »

Friday, April 06, 2007

The distinctive and riveting saxophonist Ornette Coleman (arguably the pioneer of the free jazz movement), continuously defies categorization. On this New Sounds, we'll hear from his latest original, innovative, and groundbreaking release called "Sound Grammar," the first in over 10 years. Also, we'll sample some small ensemble works from Nico Muhly, who toes the lines between folktronica, pop, chamber, and minimalism on his release "Speaks Volumes." Plus, chamber music from a duo with inspirational roots in Argentinean traditions from bandoneon giant Dino Saluzzi and German cellist Anja Lechner. And much more.
