Podcast: Michael Daugherty’s Fire and Blood

Composer Michael Daugherty was the composer-in-residence for four years at the Detroit Symphony, and composed all of the music on this CD for that orchestra. The title work was inspired by the giant murals at the Detroit Institute of Arts by Diego Rivera. Rivera was commissioned by Edsel Ford to create a mural celelbrating the Detroit automobile industry. This CD features the Detoit Symphony, conducted by Neeme Jarvi, with soloists Ida Kavafian on violin, and Brian Jones on Timpani.
