Getting the Led Out

Sunday, October 24, 2010

Various new music types interpret the music of Led Zeppelin for this edition of New Sounds. We'll hear from the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, and their epic by Ian Krouse, “Labyrinth on a Theme of Led Zeppelin” based on a blistering transcription of “Friends.”
Also, cellist Matt Haimovitz attacks “Kashmir” in a 4 cello face-melting arrangement in collaboration with composer Luna Pearl Woolf.  Plus, the Latin folk stylings of Rodrigo Y Gabriela and their reworking of “Stairway To Heaven” and more.
