Modern classical music embraces the saxophone

Extra Eclectic - Nov. 15. 2023

Saxophones are the focus in the first hour of Extra Eclectic this week — in groups of one, two, four and in a concerto setting — featuring music by John Adams, Michael Daugherty, Marc Mellits and more. Hour 2 gets a bit chilly, with music that evokes both northern climates and autumnal atmospheres. Listen now with host Steve Seel.
