Playlist for Thursday, May 22

It's mostly new releases on today's Midday Music. From close to home comes "Poetry of the Piedmont" by Duke University composer Stephen Jaffe, played by the North Carolina Symphony. Further afield are Spanish and Chinese guitar pieces from the new CD by Chinese-born, London-based guitarist Xuefei Yang ("Shoo-fay Yong"). You might've heard her play on Performance Today; you can see her talk and play on YouTube.
