For this New Sounds, listen to the new recording, "September Canons" featuring violinist Todd Reynolds performing a piece written for him by American composer Ingram Marshall. It’s a soaring, searing work for violin with electronic processing, and is a "lamentation on the events of September 11, 2001." Also, hear music by new York-based violinist and composer Christopher Tignor, of the band Slow Six, from his release “Core Memory Unwound.” Plus there’s music from Swiss violinist Paul Giger, with a Tibetan Buddhist-inflected piece for violin and choir, and a work for violin and keyboard by Max Richter.

Actually, Peter, I did NOT know about the Garbarek version. I'll have to check it out. Thanks.

The Giger piece was fantastic! I could not pull myself away from the radio until it was done. Completely mezmerized. Thanks for a great introduction to minimalism in music!

Paul Giger's piece Karma Shadub was also featured on Alpstein with Jan Garbarek. A very different version...

You probably already know that, but, you never know...
