Sharp Ears: Composer Mark Olivieri

In WXXI’s Sharp Ears series, we’ve been hearing from composers and how what they listen to seeps into their music.  Last week we heard from Pulitzer prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon, and today it’s composer Mark Olivieri’s turn.  He’s an Assistant Professor of Music at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, and he’s thought a lot about what kind of music draws him in.

Click on the audio link above to hear Olivieri’s conversation with WXXI’s Brenda Tremblay.
