What’s happening in the music?

Philip Glass’ Glassworks gets double points on tonight’s theme. If you’ve never experienced his legendary work or the 20th century composition style known as minimalism, it’s a great place to start. We bet you’ll go home humming one of the looping melodies.

You’ll also hear music by Classical master Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and rising star Dani Howard, a British composer who’s making a name for herself with new concertos for other young stars including saxophonist Jess Gillam and trombonist Peter Moore.
