From Seattle, Washington, this program features a local teenage violinist delivering an emotional performance of the music of Ernest Bloch, teenagers from Chicago perform a thrilling, wild, and fun work for sax quartet, and we’ll enjoy the broadcast premiere of a new composition written by an 18-year-old from New York City – an intriguing and ethereal piece “Tropholingua”, which means “language of plants.” You can see the works of art that inspired “Tropholingua” here.
