Original airdate 
Jun 5, 2019

Composer Jonathan Leshnoff has the world premiere of the Concerto he’s written for Pittsburgh Symphony Principals Michael Rusinek, clarinet and Nancy Goeres, bassoon. Can you tap your foot to it?  He thinks you can and tells Jim Cunningham  his composing story so far from Brunswick, New jersey to Towson State in Baltimore. Why is he third only to John Williams and John Adams on the list of most often performed American composers? Some ideas are discussed.  There is also an edited version of this interview with video on Youtube and Vimeo.
