    S2E9 - Hannibel's Canon // Tom Morrison

    S2E9 - Hannibel's Canon // Tom Morrison

    S2E9 - He goes by many names. Hannibal Lector, Dr. Robert Ford, and sometimes even Anthony Hopkins. But there is another title that needs to be added: Maestro. That's right. Our favorite Sir Anthony Hopkins has become a composer. On this episode, the Season 2 finale, the trio does a cursory analysis of his recent compositions, as well as explores the world of genre-crossing celebrities. Afterwards, Will interviews composer and collaboration enthusiast Tom Morrison.
    Special Note: This episode was recorded prior to the recent passing of composer Christopher Rouse. As Will and Tom mention Rouse during their conversation, we wanted to acknowledge his incredible influence as both a composer and person. We at Adagio For Things highly encourage you to give his music a listen.

    S2E8 - The Good, the Bach, and the Fugly // Fjóla Evans

    S2E8 - As the saying goes, you win some, you lose some. Who in the music arena is knocking it out of the park? And on the flip side, what does it mean for an organization to rack up a loss? Will, Spencer, and Michael discuss their thoughts on which music groups are doing things right, and which institutions are in need of improvement. Then, Michael speaks with composer Fjóla Evans about their experiences as both a writer and cellist.

    S2E5 - Fair And Balanced Counterpoints // Michael Seltenreich

    S2E5 - Fair And Balanced Counterpoints // Michael Seltenreich

    S2E5 - "Why you so obsessed with me?" Mariah, embodying the spirit of classical music, was most certainly speaking to right wing institutions. On this episode, the hosts dissect the conservative establishment's love of past music, and their thoughts (or hatred?) of new music. This is in no way a blanket statement, but rather a look into several examples that have surfaced. After the discussion, Michael chats with composer Michael Seltenreich. The artist shares a story of incredible coincidences that is not to be missed.
