Interview with CapRadio's Kevin Doherty

Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw recently collaborated with San Francisco's Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra which led to a new album. She sat down with CapRadio Classical Host Kevin Doherty to talk about the award, being inspired by Carl Sagan, and what it was like working with Kanye West.

Shaw's recent album with PBO also contains the song cycle "Is A Rose" which features mezzo-soprano Anne Sophie von Otter. When I asked Shaw how she's coping in this time of COVID, she said at the beginning she slowed down and didn't feel the need to be too productive, and now she says she is reemerging, writing more, and embracing the new world.
