For this New Sounds, we'll hear from the Kronos Quartet's brand new release "Floodplain." This record is full of music from Serbia, Azerbajan, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, and Lebanon, incorporating other sounds, live and taped. Not to be outdone, violist and host of WNYC's weekday Overnight Music Nadia Sirota just released a record of newly commissioned works by Judd Greenstein, Nico Muhly and other new music heavy-hitters involving her instrument and other sounds, called "First Things First." We'll hear from that and Valentin Silvestrov's "Ikon" performed by the Cailino Quartet, and more.
