Respect Sextet

New Sounds

A Very New Sounds Christmas (Eve)

Tuesday, December 24, 2013

Twas the night before Christmas, and all on New Sounds, John Schaefer has collected music for the season, in the vein of the strange and unusual.  From the inventive Respect Sextet, hear several arrangements of well-chosen and lesser-known tunes from the record, "Respect in Yule."  The selections include a holiday classic by the Band, "Christmas Must Be Tonight," an Ethiopian-inspired arrangement of a Herbert Howells choral piece, "A Spotless Rose," with help from the Ensemble Signal, and an arrangement of Sir John Tavener's "The Lamb," with the JACK Quartet.  Also, hear Tavener's original, "The Lamb," along with twisted songs by The Real Tuesday Weld and Sufjan Stevens.

The Brothers Balliett Stockhausen Spectacular

Thursday, December 06, 2012

We've dedicated this week's show to an often-misunderstood figure from late 20th-century music - Karlheinz Stockhausen. Between the classic moment-to-moment drama of Kontakte to industrial jazz realizations of the Zodiac cycle, these selections will put good old Karlheinz in a whole new light. Today at 3 pm.
