: Hannah Lash: In Pursuit of Flying

Hannah Lash knew from a young age that she wanted to be a composer, but she hadn't yet learned how to read or write music. So, Hannah developed her own system for writing music using triangles, squiggles, and x's. On today's show, hear pianist Jeremy Denk and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra play "In Pursuit of Flying," by American composer Hannah Lash.
