Episode #3550

New Music For Fiddles and Violins

« previous episode | next episode »

Tuesday, January 07, 2014

For this New Sounds, listen to various forms of music for violin and fiddle, incorporating folk traditions from the world over – like those of Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, and Scotland, to name a few. There’s music from the Scottish string trio, the Red Note Ensemble joined by tabla player Kuljit Bhamra, plus a tango for string quartet from Serbian composer Boris Kovac. Then, hear a tune from the five member Janusz Prusinowski Trio, playing traditional folk instruments of Poland, along with traditionally-rooted music from the 2010 Swedish nyckelharpa champion Emilia Amper.

Also, listen to music by Daniel Herskedal from Norway, where big band jazz, minimalism, and chamber music all collide in music for violin.  Hear Hungarian violinist/zither player Lajkó Félix, as well as Balkan- Turkish- and Ukranian-rooted music from A Hawk and a Hacksaw.  Plus, an instrumental from violinist/singer/guitarist/whistler Andrew Bird. And more.
