As the nights grow longer and cooler, Extra Eclectic host Steve Seel takes the opportunity to sample from the wealth of modern classical works that perfectly complement the mood of an autumnal evening — composers like Valentin Silvestrov, Kaija Saariaho, Olafur Arnalds and more. Plus, Seel features tracks from Minnesota guitarist Steve Tibbetts' new career retrospective and a massive, captivating work from Swedish composer Andrea Tarrodi.
