This week on Extra Eclectic, host Steve Seel features a concerto for orchestra, but not Bela Bartok’s famous example, which features each section of the orchestra. Instead, we hear acclaimed American composer Jennifer Higdon’s Concerto for Orchestra. The New York Times called it “magical” and “sparkling.” We also will hear music from Thomas Ades, Phillip Glass and a sampling from a new release by pianist Awadagin Pratt called Still Point. Listen now.
