Composer Steven Stucky, who won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for his Second Concerto for Orchestra, has much to say about composing, his colleagues and the music of Bach. He's as engaging in conversation as he is musically.
We get a taste of the man and his music during his chat with Performance Today host Fred Child on stage at the Aspen Music Festival.
Then, we hear him conduct the Aspen Contemporary Music Ensemble in a performance of his homage to J.S. Bach, Partita-Pastorale (after J.S. Bach).
