: Wang Jie: Symphony No. 1

Composer Wang Jie and JoAnn Falletta Fred Child

Composer Wang Jie says "If you find yourself elated by my music, the credit goes to the muses. If you hate it, well, it's only 15 minutes long." The composer describes herself as "part cartoon character, part virtuoso." On Friday's Performance Today, JoAnn Falletta leads the Buffalo Philharmonic in a concert performance of the Symphony No. 1 by Wang Jie.
