Every Day a New Beginning: Music in the Autism Spectrum

Music with Minnesotans - Jenn Deyo

Jenn Deyo's six-year-old son, Abe, is on the autism spectrum. Classical music plays a very prominent part in Abe's life. Jenn's stories about the "good days and bad days" in their family life and the classical playlist that helps them all to be a bit more integrated will fascinate you.

Mahler: "Adagietto" from Symphony No. 5 (excerpt) with the Vienna Philharmonic conducted by Pierre Boulez. DG 453 416

Arvo Pärt: Tabla Rasa (excerpt) with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra conducted by Neemi Jarvi. DG 457 647

Satie: Gymnopedie 1 & 3 performed by pianist Pascal Rogé. London 444 958

Pergolesi: Stabat Mater (excerpt) with Dorothea Röschmann and Catherine Robin and the King's Violins conducted by Bernard Labadie. Sono Luminus 90012

Next Week: Boomerang Minnesotan, Sabrina Hymel, studies bugs, urban bugs — and she's an English major. Fun!
