Featuring performances of Michael Torke's Boast Not of Tomorrow by the Netherlands Radio Choir and Philharmonic Orchestra (Edo de Waart, conductor) and Christopher Chandler's Smoke and Mirrors by the [Switch~ Ensemble].

“Have You Heard This?” is an ongoing and informal discussion about music between two friends, choral composer Joshua Shank and electroacoustic composer Jon Fielder. With their shared sense of humor, Josh and Jon have been peacefully staring at each other from VERY opposite sides of the aesthetic spectrum for years, and have often wondered why other composers they’ve met in their journeys sometimes can’t do the same. Josh and Jon invite listeners to join them in talking about classical music they may or may not like…in a way they may or may not have talked about it before. Have you heard this?
