MBG 13-02: Carter; Luther Adams; Daugherty; Theofanidis

In this episode of NMFBG, we "Raise the Roof" with Michael Daugherty (pictured) and his tour-de-force of a Timpani Concerto. We also hear an early work by modern music icon Elliott Carter, plus John Luther Adams' hypnotic vision of a deep, dark, sea. Finally, Christopher Theofanidis packs seven hundred years of history into a 12-minute violin concerto.
