New music inspired by J.S. Bach is what you'll hear on this New Sounds. Listen for "Lighthouse" from the Estonian composer, Erkki-Sven Tuur, something of a contemporary take on the baroque, commissioned by Ausbach Bach festival in 1997. Plus there's music by Steve Martland, his work "Crossing the Border," inspired by Bach's Partita for Solo Violin. And much more.
