Harbison's Dance Number

This Tuesday's Composers Datebook entry featured wind music: John Harbison's Three City Blocks. In this composition, the composer taps into a period where every hotel in a major city had their own dance band. Like other composers of wind music, Harbison uses a hint (perhaps more than a hint in Three City Blocks,) of jazz influences. Click here to listen to the Datebook entry.
