Mid-Sized Ensembles

« previous episode | next episode »

Friday, May 22, 2009

We'll hear from four different mid-sized ensembles on this New Sounds program. The thing to keep in mind is the versatility of all these bands, who all have bass and drums, so that they almost look like and sometimes sound like a rock or jazz band. Listen to something from the "indie" classical band Build, John Hollenbeck's ensemble Claudia Quintet, the new music group Flexible Music, and the new music and jazz players of Joseph C. Phillips, Jr.'s group Numinous.
