Little, Lev Zhurbin (aka Ljova), Corey Dargel, and Frederic Rzewski, all in small ensemble versions of music that the full orchestra will play later in the season. The performance takes place at 7PM in the World Financial Center's Winter Garden on Wednesday October 12, 2011. Admission is FREE.

Hear some musical memories from the New Sounds Live concert series on this program. The California EAR Unit plays "Coming Together" by Frederic Rzewski - a socially conscious work - and one of his masterpieces. Also, Lionheart and the quartet Ethel play an excerpt from the new commercial release of "John The Revelator" by Phil Kline, a work commissioned by WNYC. Plus, music by Terry Riley & The All Stars, Peter Garland, and more.
