New Releases, April 2014

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

It's that time of the month again for the new releases show on New Sounds. John Schaefer carefully separates the wheat from the chaff for this show.  He'll sort through the stacks of new CDs, the Soundcloud files, and other digital submissions which have come across his desk and into his inbox over the past month to present some of the finest new releases. He'll skim off the cream. He'll pick the lentils from the ashes. You get it.

Silk Road Ensemble and Side Roads

Sunday, May 27, 2012

Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble explored the music of the famed trade route, and for this New Sounds program, we’ll follow some of the side roads, featuring musicians from the Silk Road Ensemble.  Hear from Japanese composer and shakuhachi player Kojiro Umezaki, who incorporates both traditional instruments and technology into his work.   We’ll hear one of Umezaki’s compositions, performed by Brooklyn Rider (also musicians of the Silk Road Ensemble.)
