It seems like young violinist Colin Jacobsen is open to just about anything in the world of music. He’s an accomplished composer and has played with ensembles ranging from Yo-Yo-Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, the adventurous ensembles Brooklyn Rider and The Knights, and dance companies including New York City Ballet and the Mark Morris Dance Group. His piece Brooklesca for string quartet plus bass and percussion comes from an appropriately named album, Passport, where Jacobsen shows off his eclectic and energetic style. Also tonight, music of Mikis Theodorakis and Nils Frahm.

I could probably listen to Ilham's "Peaceful Song" 100 times in a row and not get tired of it--it's just so beautiful.

DF, I hope you heard after the piece that it was "The Horse" by Joe Maneri (who died Aug. 31st at age 82), from his album recorded in 1963 but only recently released, "Paniots Nine."
