When the 12th and 21st Centuries Collide

Marc-Andre Dalbavie is composer-in-residence at this summer's Aspen Music Festival. He's taken words and tunes from 12th-century love songs, then re-set them with a beautiful contemporary twist. Fred Child joined him last week at the Aspen Music Festival. We'll hear their conversation and excerpts from a fascinating piece titled "Sixtine Cyclus." Soprano Courtney Huffman joins the Aspen Contemporary Ensemble.
