Music for Voices and Strings (Special Podcast)

Monday, March 31, 2014


For this New Sounds, listen to new music from violinist and vocalist Caleb Burhans. His latest release “Evensong” explores both the secular and sacred, along with works both instrumental and choral. Listen to his "The Things Left Unsaid," one of the instrumentals on the record. Also, hear music by Nico Muhly, which draws from both the minimalist tradition and Anglican hymns. Plus, an ambient-sounding work from Hungarian composer Gyorgy Ligeti.

Special thanks to our hardworking New Sounds Assistant, Isabel Kim, for making this podcast possible.
