As part of WQXR's Beethoven Awareness Month, Q2 Music honors the spirit of arguably the most iconic and paradigm-shifting composer of all time with four weeklong portraits of some of today's most distinct and inventive compositional voices. Featuring insights provided by the composers themselves to their key works, this month draws back the curtain with exclusive, direct composer commentary on what it means to write music in the 21st century. This week: The musical polymath and Bang on a Can co-founder Michael Gordon.
