On this edition of All Ears, we're taste testing music in courses. Terrance McKnight shares with you his talent for juxtaposition. Just as wine can be paired with food to enhance certain flavors and awaken senses, so do particular pieces of music when played side by side. We have some delicious combinations for your evening; yummy sounds waiting to be devoured.
