NPR’s “First Listen” is a Qualified Hit
First Listen at NPR/music is simply put, almost terrific.
I listened to two albums, track by track. The “almost” is that after several tracks in each album on two different computers, the next track would not start at the click, I had to re-launch the web page. They will get that fixed.
Steve Reich Double Sextet/2X5
The Bad Plus Never Stop
On the one hand, I liked both albums and will probably buy them both in .mp3 at Amazon.
But, that is not the point here. The points here are that 1) NPR’s First Listen is a first rate destination for serious composers to get their music out to the public; and 2) the listening public would be well served to check in with this site to see what is new.
