Listen to music from the Armenian diaspora on this New Sounds program. Hear the duduk, that distinctive double reed instrument, by the “Master of the Duduk,” Djivan Gasparyan, in many different combinations, from Gasparyan’s collaboration with Canadian-American producer Michael Brook’s electric guitar, to a work featuring the cellist Maya Beiser. Then, hear Gasparyan’s duduk in a work by the Italian pianist/composer Ludovico Einaudi. There's also music from the recent release by violist Nicolas Cords (of Brooklyn Rider) playing a work by Alan Hovanhess.
