Email a Friend

Soprano Dawn Upshaw and musician and composer Maria Schneider talk about their new recording, “Winter Morning Walks.” It is Schneider's first recording with major orchestras and features two commissioned works composed and conducted by Schneider with The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and Australian Chamber Orchestra, and poetry by Ted Kooser and Carlos Drummond de Andrade. The album blurs the line between classical and jazz, with touches of avant-garde and pop sensibilities.
