3/21/2016 Fairouz on NPR's Fresh Air

As heard on NPR & WHYY's "Fresh Air". Perfect to enhance any project's discussion of intense issues - Fairouz' music is timely and interesting & can only be licensed from Naxos.

See all that Fairouz has to offer!

Mohammed Fairouz has rapidly become one of the most highly regarded composers of his generation, receiving wide acclaim for works such as Native Informant (Naxos 8.559744) and his 4th symphony, In the Shadow of No Towers (Naxos 8.573205). These songs, representing a decade of vocal writing, deal with powerful social issues and sensual celebrations of life and being human. From Refugee Blues to After the Revels, the above themes span texts from ancient times to World War II. The theme of loss is also compellingly expressed, with the intense, distilled narrative of No Orpheus, a portrait of departed family members, and concluding with Edgar Allan Poe’s last completed poem, the hauntingly mournful Annabel Lee.

Take a musical journey through No Orpheus, as heard on Fresh Air
