A 2022 year in review

Extra Eclectic - Dec. 28, 2022

2022 was an excellent year for new classical music. On this week's Extra Eclectic, host Steve Seel brings us a "highly subjective and thoroughly incomplete" sampling of some terrific releases. We will hear Sean Shibe's Lost & Found, Johann Johannsson's Drone Mass and two new releases from pianist Vicky Chow featuring music by Jane Antonia Cornish and Philip Glass.
