: The evolution of Lalo Schifrin

Imani Winds Wind Quintet Arts Management Group

Composer Lalo Schifrin is 87 years old and going strong. You might not immediately recognize his name, but you probably know his music. He's had a wide ranging career, from composing film scores to playing classical piano, and even a stint playing tango with fellow Argentinian Astor Piazzolla. On today's show, hear the Imani Winds play "La Nouvelle New Orleans," by Lalo Schifrin.
