Lost Cities & Civilizations

Sunday, August 17, 2014

We’ll spend an hour listening to music from lost cities and civilizations on this New Sounds program.  Hear music by Turkmenistan-born Iraida Yusupova, with the title “Kitezh” – the invisible city of legend that appears in a Rimsky-Korsakov opera and a kind of Russian Atlantis.  It is said to have disappeared under water when Mongols were about to attack, and Yusupova suggests as much with theremin and tape.
