There’s a certain mythology around the composers of yesteryear. But ever wonder what it’s like to be a classical music composer in this day and age? According to American composers Lowell Liebermann, Kenneth Fuchs and Mohammed Fairouz, it’s an incredibly liberating, enlightening, and challenging experience. The three sat down for Composers Round Table with David Srebnik to not only discuss and play their music together, but also to reflect on the state of classical music in 2013. What’s one thing that they all agreed on? Listen below to find out. (Hint: it has to do with young composers today).
For more of their discussion and to hear some of their own music, tune in at 7 pm ET on Symphony Hall, Ch. 76.
