Video: Composer Conversations - John Harbison

Posted at 12:12 PM on October 24, 2013 by Emily Reese

The Composer Conversation Series is for music lovers of all stripes, and features some of today's most original, prominent and prestigious voices in composition.

The events are free, but the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra's Matt Thueson records them and puts them on YouTube.

Here is video of the first Conversation in the series, in which I talk with composer John Harbison about his music and career. It was magnificent to learn so much about him and his music. Enjoy!
