: New music inspired by New York's five boroughs

In NYC studio. Arun Luthra, composer & saxophonist - Thomson Kneeland, bass - Jonathan Barber, drums - Marko Churnchetz, piano Performance Today

As part of our new series, New York Out Loud, we commissioned composer Arun Luthra to write five new works using sounds from each of New York's five boroughs. Brand new music inspired by the sounds and feelings of the city. On this edition of Performance Today, hear these five works written just for us by Arun Luthra.
