Listen to the pipes and flutes a-calling on this New Sounds program.  From the ocarinas and simple flutes in music by Alaska-based John Luther Adams to the pipes and wind instruments of Finland in music by Wind on Wind, there’s sure to be something to wet the whistle.  Listen to the intricate rhythmic interplay of pan pipes from the South Pacific, along with the unusual textures of wind instruments from the Andes, and more.
