For this New Sounds, hear music from Eastern Europe, featuring music from Poland, Ukraine, Serbia, and the Czech Republic, plus music from the Bulgarian Women's Chorus.  

Kronos Quartet plays “the Sea Ranch Songs” by Serbian-born, Manhattan-based composer Aleksandra Vrebalov. The Sea Ranch is a 10-mile stretch of coastal community in Sonoma County, California, known for its architecture and land-planning designed for humans and nature to live as one. Commissioned for Kronos by the community of The Sea Ranch for the seaside retreat’s 50th birthday, the work features the sounds of the wild surroundings and evokes the majestic beauty of those environs.

Listen also as Iva Bittova does some of her “Fragments” for voice violin and music box. Then hear music from Polish singer, multi-instrumentalist and musical interpreter Karolina Cicha, who sings a song of the lowland gypsies or Roma. Plus, there's music by Mariana Sadovska (Ukraine), as well as something from the Bulgarian Women’s Chorus.
