New Music From the UK

On this New Sounds, hear works by violist/composer Jocelyn Pook, and her sometime collaborator composer, pianist and bandleader Jeremy Peyton-Jones. There's also music by the original young composer Geoff Smith, whose 4AD lushness coupled with minimalist cool, comes out sounding part-Cocteau Twins, part- Philip Glass. Listen for music by Michael Nyman and more.
