Our look at the Four Seasons continues on this New Sounds, with the companion program to last night, geared towards the non-violin centered works that have used the Four Seasons as their launch pad.  Again, these are works inspired by the Vivaldi work, including music from an electronic version by Wendy Carlos, a piece by Danish-born, Brooklyn-based saxophonist Rene Mogensen, plus Japanese flute improvisations, and many more.
