: Petris Vasks rises

Composer Peteris Vasks Courtesy of artist, Schott Music

Composer Peteris Vasks lived through the tumultuous history of the Soviet Union and the Baltics. He had to defeat pessimism in order to find and accept the beauty of our world. On today's show, we also say yes to beauty; hear the Lysander Piano Trio play music by Peteris Vasks at a concert in Morrow, Georgia.
