Anna Clyne

Anna Clyne

Each week on Performance Today, we feature music written in the 21st century. But what does it mean to be a 21st century composer? Anna Clyne moved to New York and juggled jobs as a cellist, a waitress, a florist and an apartment cleaner until finally - a composing scholarship came through and her career took off. On Friday's Performance Today, we'll hear music by Anna Clyne.
