Aaron Jay Kernis
John Zech's guest is Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Aaron Jay Kernis. Kernis has a long-standing relationship with the Twin Cities musical community; formerly composer in residence for the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra; he's now taken on the role of "new music advisor" for the Minnesota Orchestra.

Kernis is a child of his time; his music tells the stories of the world in a highly personal, yet recognizable way. Tune in to hear conversations with him and parts of his Second Symphony, the Pulitzer Prize-winning String Quartet no. 2, "Colored Field" (Concerto for English Horn), and more.

Listen in: Hear Aaron Jay Kernis discuss his work, along with a sampling of his music (RealAudio 3.0; how to listen)
