From New Sounds: “New Music Youngsters”

If you are interested in the New York City New Music scene, visit this program, New Music Youngsters at WNYC’s New Sounds. Host John Schaefer explores the music of composers like Caleb Burhans, Matt McBane, Sara Kirkland Snider, and Missy Mazzoli.

The groups whose performances are presented are yMusic, ACME, Newspeak, Victoire, eighth blackbird, and Signal.

The home for New Music, every day, 24/7, is the Q2 internet only audio stream from WQXR.

And, the person within who all of this is tied together is Ms Nadia Sirota, the gifted violist. She performs with ACME and with yMusic. At Q2, she has a twice a day four hour program, Nadia Sirota on Q2.

This is a wonderful program. If you visit the web page, there is an audio track archive for your listening pleasure. The only things missing from John’s production of this program is any mention of Ms Sirota, who did indeed deserve mention; and possibly the presence of Ms Sirota in the program. She is an extremely well educated and articulate young woman, her life is inextricably bound in this art. She could well have added to the presentation.
