Philip Glass said that after he heard pianist Simone Dinnerstein play, he knew he had to write a new piano concerto for her. His Piano Concerto No. 3 was the result, and it's one of the main works featured on this week's show. Steve Seel also showcases a host of composers from Iceland, as well as pieces by Arvo Part, Ned Rorem and more.
