Corey Mwamba presents a selection of adventurous improvised music. This week features a series of duos involving string players. There’s a new album by the Chicago cellist Tomeka Reid with British pianist Alexander Hawkins; some Americana-inspired music from violin player Jen Curtis with drummer Tyshawn Sorey, and a Radio 3 session track from two musicians who’ve never met before, South African cellist Abel Selaocoe and Sarathy Korwar playing tabla.

Plus, Steve Beresford records a solo piano piece from his home during lockdown, and music from a global Chinese music collective combining traditional instruments with industrial electronics.
