For this New Sounds, listen to some new music with folk roots, and unexpected folk collaborations.  There's music by Howard Skempton, the English minimalist, using "Wild Colonial Boy" in his piece "The Durham Strike."  Then listen to Jim Moray doing "Two Sisters," Tom Waits doing "Two Sisters," and Julia Wolfe's "Cruel Sister," based on the same song.

What's New With Joby Talbot?

Sunday, May 08, 2011

English composer Joby Talbot joins John Schaefer for this New Sounds program to present excerpts from recent scores for the opera stage, dance, film, and television.  Talbot contributed the playful score to the coming-of-age film, "Son of Rambow."  We'll hear music from that film score, and take a sneak peek at an opera-in-progress, "Coma," from which Talbot performs a piano reduction - "Hospital."
