Max Reinhardt

Max Reinhardt shares new folk music by You Are Wolf, sounds from Reykjavik's Dark Music Days Festival, and late '90s chamber-jazz by Errollyn Wallen.

Max and his swagbag have been to Iceland, picking up field recordings and premières from Reykjavik's Dark Music Days Festival, including a very rare performance of an ambient work by Satoshi Ashikawa, and Lilja María Ásmundsdóttir's Hulda, a 25-string instrument that throws out both sound and light.

There's an exclusive play too of the new album by You Are Wolf, composer Kerry Andrew's avant-folk collaboration with Sam Hall and Peter Ashwell. KELD has fresh water as its theme, exploring 'vengeful rivers and wild swimming'.

Plus, an acclaimed new release by Bojan Čiċić's Illyria Consort, of 18th-century music by London-based Italian composer and violinist Giovanni Carbonelli. And Max dips into the back catalogue of modern-day Londoner Errollyn Wallen - a track that shifts from contemporary chamber music to soulful jazz, featuring her trumpeter brother Byron and saxophonist Courtney Pine.

Produced by Chris Elcombe for Reduced Listening.
