Classical Perspectives

On this New Sounds, we'll have new look at the old masters – from Uri Caine's inventive and improvisatory take on Mozart, to the Kamikaze Ground Crew making sense of Karlheinz Stockhausen. Also, the California Guitar Trio plays a famous piano piece by Beethoven, and various New York “downtown” types offer their perspectives on the music of Schubert. Also, Cuban arrangements of Chopin, and possibly even J.S. Bach on the banjo.
