For this edition of New Sounds, hear some “Green Music,” that is, music with a global environmental bent.

We’ll listen to philosopher, author and musician David Rothenberg’s latest, compositions with clarinet to the sounds of whale calls. Also, we’ll hear concert music by composer/violinist Patmore Lewis, centering around the effects of global warming on the Rillito River, no longer flowing year-round through Tucson, AZ. Plus, music from “Green” by cellist Hank Roberts, his “Lenape Suite,” and more.
