South Dakota Symphony Orchestra concert includes gamelan concerto
This interview originally aired on In the Moment on SDPB Radio.
We dive into music as a global connecter, and we do it with a conversation on Lou Harrison's concertos. Harrison was one of the first composers to explore world music through his work incorporating the gamelan, a traditional Indonesian instrument.
The upcoming South Dakota Symphony Orchestra concert will feature Harrison's work as well as Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's "Scheherazade."
