Augusta Read Thomas

We're joined by composer Augusta Read Thomas, featured guest for this year's New Music Festival at Bowling Green State University and a longtime force behind the scenes of contemporary music. Along with celebrated oboist Andrew Nogal, Thomas discusses the debut album from the Grossman Ensemble (founded by Thomas and housed at the University of Chicago). Called Fountain of Time, the album features a wide variety of works written for the ensemble, including David Dzubay's PHO (Potentially Hazardous Objects) and Shulamit Ran's Grand Rounds.
