Music Interviews

Conversations with the performers, the conductors, the composers and other people instrumental in creating today's live and recorded classical music. 

Cyan Worlds

What if you could re-live the sense of wonder and mystery from the landmark game "Myst?" Cyan Worlds, co-founded by brothers Rand and Robyn Miller, is bringing it back with their game "Obduction," which releases this August. Robyn came on board to provide the music, and in one of his first interviews about his "Obduction" OST,  I talked to him about what we can expect from this master of beautiful, memorable soundtracks. And we'll hear a preview of one of the tracks for "Obduction."

There's lots of great music to look forward to during this season's Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival, which opens with a glimpse into Mozart's life with narrator Alan Alda in two concerts: July 31 and August 1. Kate Remington talks with founder and flutist Marya Martin about some of the highlights.

      

Hard to believe, but it's been 20 years since we first joined Tomb Raider Lara Croft on her adventures, tracking down mysterious relics in some of the world's most exotic locations. As part of this year's anniversary celebrations, Nathan McCree is in the process of writing an orchestral "Tomb Raider Suite'" drawn from his soundtracks for the first three Tomb Raider games.

That Game Company

In February, Fifth House Ensemble wrapped up their incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign to create a concert version of Austin Wintory's music for Journey, accompanying live players on stage. Now, with several concerts under their belts and an upcoming performance in Brooklyn in July, I checked in with Melissa and Eric Snoza of Fifth House to find out how the performances have gone so far.
