JOHN RAE: The Troubles With Iran
If you heard his violin concerto at the recent NZSO Bold Worlds concert, like us, you probably want to hear more by the young American composer and DJ, recently named 'the most-performed composer of his generation'. His Anthology of Fantastic Zoology was inspired by and named after a compendium of mythological creatures by Argentinian writer Jules Luis Borges.
