David Teie

March 19, 2010

Music for humans, music for cats

This week's 21st century music feature highlights a composer who doesn't limit his audience to humans. David Teie also writes music for cats to enjoy. His cat music incorporates sounds of purring and bird chirps. His human music features more conventional sounds. On today's show, we'll hear Teie's concerto for viola and cello, with the composer himself playing the cello solo.
