Last week, we looked at some music inspired or affected by war. This week, Fred Child of NPR's Performance Today brings us a few more examples: "L'Homme Arme," "Laqad fatanatni farandjiyya," "La Guerre," "Fanfare for the Common Man," "Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima," and an impromptu work played by Vedran Smilovic.
