Friday, 3 PM: Interview with composer Toby Twining

During the first half of Friday Afternoon Classical, composer Toby Twining will explain the inspiration for and play for us a bit of his newest opus, Eurydice. Telling the story of the underworld, Eurydice uses a potpourri of vocal effect creating languid harmonies as they combine with solo cello accompaniment. Mr. Twining will discuss the creative process behind the piece, his use of extended vocal technique and the role that the voice plays in 21st century classical music.
