Playlist for Wednesday, June 18

At noon it's a new violin concerto with an eyebrow-raising title: Taliban Dances. The outer sections of Robert Ian Winstin's virtuosic concerto are called "Call to Prayer." Between those come two lullabies ("Life" and "Death") and a "Baghdad bossa nova" that Winstin calls "an artistic statement on the absurdity of war."

Earlier, pianist Nicholas Angelich anchors a Schumann chamber work. To hear MORE Angelich in BIGGER Schumann, tune in for The ASO on GPB, this Thursday evening at 8 and Sunday at 10. He'll shine in Schumann's Piano Concerto with the Atlanta Symphony.
