'Spring,' 'The Man Who Cried'

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

If you had grown up in Estonia, it's likely you would have read the novel Spring by Oskar Luts. Estonian composer Veljo Tormis composed the music for the film based on that novel. From a concert in Tallinn, we hear the Nordic Symphony play a suite from his film score. Anu Tali conducts. Then, we hear music by Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov. Clarinetist Todd Palmer and friends play the Lullaby and Doina from the film score to The Man Who Cried. They're in concert at Tannery Pond in New Lebanon, N.Y.
