: Osvaldo Golijov: Azul

Composer Osvaldo Golijov Festival de Saint-Denis - Sebastien Chambert c 2007

Of all the 21st century compositions we've played on PT, one piece has gotten the most rapturous response. It's music inspired by the beauty of the night sky... but also by the pain and violence of war. "Azul" by Osvaldo Golijov, featuring Yo-Yo Ma, on this episode of Performance Today.
