Du Yun on Q2

The latest addition to Q2′s programming schedule is Olivia Giovetti’s “The New Canon.” Yesterday, she featured youngish indie classical composers alongside downtown composer Julia Wolfe (the embed player featured a free download of the latter!). The music was great fun but the highlight was an interview with composer Du Yun on her latest, more pop-oriented, release Shark in You (New Focus).

I’ve previously enjoyed Giovetti’s writing for Time Out and her blog, but she’s also a fine interviewer and an entertaining broadcast presence. I’m looking forward to many Monday mornings of “The New Canon.”
