Alexandre Desplat is having an eventful year. He has been composing for an intriguingly wide range of films, from the poignant whimsey of Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" to the high-tension drama of Ben Affleck's "Argo," and from the intimate French film "Rust and Bone" to DreamWorks' new animated spectacular "Rise of the Guardians."

Desplat joins David Garland to present his music, to talk about his early years, his fascination with orchestral color, his love of story-telling, and the particulars of these and other projects from this year.
