Ways of Hearing: Reflections on Music in 26 Pieces
What happens when extraordinary creative spirits—Gustavo Dudamel, Frank Gehry and other musicians, poets, critics, and scholars —are asked to reflect on their favorite music? The result is Ways of Hearing, a diverse collection that explores the ways music shapes us and our shared culture. These acts of musical witness bear fruit through personal essays, conversations and interviews, improvisatory meditations, poetry, and visual art. They sound the depths of a remarkable range of musical genres, including opera, jazz, bluegrass, and concert music both classical and contemporary. Contributors include Gustavo Dudamel, Frank Gehry, Laurie Anderson, Carrie Mae Weems, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and more.
