We hear Osvaldo Golijov's film noir-charged "Refugee," a track from his score to the Francis Ford Coppola movie "Youth Without Youth." Also, one of Robert Schumann's finest orchestral scores, his "Manfred" overture (to a romantic drama by Lord Byron). Later, a string quartet from American composer Richard Danielpour entitled "Psalms of Sorrow," complemented by William Russo's parable of the stages of life, the "Carousel Suite" (featuring the late Studs Terkel as narrator).
