We hear a sample from Bobby McFerrin's album of chant-like vocalisms, "Circlesongs." Also, waltzes from Columbia University-based composer Fred Lerdahl, as well as music from Swede Lars-Erik Larsson and Finnish symphonist Harri Vuori.

I agree with Margaret Trapp that your site is very difficult to navigate. What was the piece of music that was playing at around 7:40 on Thursday, January 8th. Thanks.

Who was the soloist on the alto sax concerto? Was this a recent recording?
