In movement three of Meet the Composer Episode Two, join host Nadia Sirota in opening up the universe that is Andrew Norman's Play for orchestra. He wrote the piece in 2013 for the Boston Modern Orchestra Project, and it's a sprawling, 47-minute work that acts as his Symphony No. 1. Like so much of his music, Play comes from countless layers of inspiration, knowledge and philosophical ideas, including those found in your average video game.
