This week, Extra Eclectic begins its weekly visits to the biggest classical music celebration in the world, the BBC Proms — with highlights from the British summertime festival's rich offerings of contemporary music performances. Host Steve Seel shares Swedish composer Andrea Tarrodi's Birds of Paradise from the July 16 concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Also on the program, John Adams' immensely powerful meditation on the tragedy of the 9/11 attacks, On the Transmigration of Souls.
