Aaron Jay Kernis

January 6, 2019

Hosted by the award-winning classical music radio announcer, Naomi Lewin, this episode features Aaron Jay Kernis, the Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer, and explores two pieces he wrote for Tippet Rise: First Club Date, for piano and cello, and Oasis, for string quartet. We hear musicians, audience members and the art center’s cofounders reflect on Kernis’ work, and we hear the composer discuss a major inspiration for Oasis: the rugged Montana landscape, which he calls “a heavenly place.”
