AMERICAN BEAUTY

Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw takes inspiration from the same Dumbarton Oaks estate that cast its spell on Stravinsky. Chris Rogerson harvests sounds from the music of Kurdish and Syrian refugees. Dvořák, having just returned to Bohemia, wrote a quartet essentially based on his experiences in New York. Three ways of looking at the world from an American perspective.
