It's the most wonderful time of the month - the showcasing of new releases! On this New Sounds program, listen to the pick of the piles, the cream of the crop. John Schaefer carefully sorts through the stacks and boatloads of new CDs & downloads which have come across his desk over the past month to present some of the finest new releases. Listen to music from trumpeter Ambrose Akimusire, along with a preview of the forthcoming record from Kronos Quartet.  There's also music from Bora Yoon, and a collaboration between guitarist Joel Harrison and sarodist Anupam Shobhakar. And much more.

Caleb Burhans

Music for Voices and Strings (Special Podcast)

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.
