Andrew Norman: Meet the Composer on WQXR

Nadia Sirota, violist and radio host on New York's WQXR and Q2, is now the host of Meet the Composer: a radio show dedicated to extended interviews and coverage of today's leading composers. Playing off the legacy of the organization founded by John Duffy which would later become New Music USA, Meet the Composer has successfully Kickstarted its way to five planned episodes, each dedicated to a single composer. After the premeire episode, which featured John Luther Adams, Sirota has turned her attention to Andrew Norman, in an episode entitled "Better Living Through Architecture."

Architectural references abound in Norman's works, from the obvious—titles referencing the Farnsworth House and architecture in Rome—to the symbolic, such as his play with architectural rhythm, large-scale form, and experience in orchestral works such as Play. In this episode, Sirota goes in-depth with Norman in an interview both informal and informative, exploring Norman's life, aesthetic philosophy, and compositional technique. Stream the entire episode here.
