Tuesday, September 30, 2008

It's the most wonderful time of the month - the showcasing of new releases! On this New Sounds program, listen to the pick of the piles. There'll probably be new music by the Norwegian fiddles of Frigg, choral hockets and percussion triptychs from Robert Moran, and a sublime second edition of Gurdjieff/Byzantium chant-rooted music in the hands of pianist Vassilis Tsabropoulos and the cello of Anya Lechner, this time with percussion provided by U.T. Gandhi. Plus, acoustic Afro-pop from Ghana for the kora-like instrument called the seprewa, and more.

Eric Hopkins from Minneapolis, MN

I just listened to your podcast about new releases for Sept 2008 featuring Cantus. I am a current member of Cantus and appreciate you playing our new disc. But our name is pronounced "con'-toose", not "con'-tuhs". Also the translation for the song titles are all in the liner notes of the disc. The Tormes piece translates to "Three I had those words of beauty".
