For this New Sounds, listen to "Tirtha," a collaboration between the South Indian guitarist Prasanna and pianist/composer Vijay Iyer.  Also, the venerable sax titan Charles Lloyd together with MacArthur “genius grant”-winning pianist Jason Moran, from a live performance on Soundcheck.  And more.

Songs Without Words

Sunday, April 14, 2013

For this New Sounds, we’ll hear an hour of songs without words, maybe even without voices.  This kind of tradition reaches back to Felix Mendelssohn and his Lieder ohne Worte (Songs without Words), and his series of short, lyrical piano pieces.  Two Norwegian musicians, saxophonist Trygve Seim & pianist Andreas Utnem, have just released a new recording of similarly lyrical songs – without voices or words – called Purcur.  It was recorded in a church in Oslo, and manages to work in the sound of the room’s personality.  We’ll hear some of these folk-rootsy lyrical songs for saxophone and piano and more.
