Cellist Marta Bagratuni leads off with two selections from her new disc of diverse music called Pieces of the World. The delightful new release pairs Marta with (among others) her father, MSU cello professor Suren Bagratuni. Epic Stravinsky, a Chopin sonata and the Stuyvesant quartet round out What's New. And be sure to catch the bonus track at show's end from The New Friends of Rhythm...a 1940's classical/jazz ensemble that was certainly new to me!
