Hear contemporary Seattle composers William Bolcom, Ken Benshoof, and Sarah Bassingthwaighte. Famous for his ragtime pieces, Pulitzer Prize-winner William Bolcom blurs the boundaries between popular and art music with his jazzy Seattle Slew Suite. Ken Benshoof’s beautiful lyricism is reflected in his Concerto for Cello and String Orchestra. Sarah Bassingthwaighte’s Sleeping in the Forest uses ever-shifting harmonic and rhythmic patterns to portray the richness of nature’s beauty.
