For this New Sounds, we'll hear the early music vocal group Anonymous 4 performing works commissioned by WNYC by both Richard Einhorn and Steve Reich.  Richard Einhorn’s “A Carnival of Miracles,” an exploration of different kinds of freedoms - religious, scientific, artistic, cultural, sexual, and political - was composed for A4 and 2 cellos.  The title refers to the medieval idea of Carnival, a time when the social order is ritually upended and all is allowed.
