Midday Music Playlist for 10/06/2010

Michael Daugherty's violin concerto Ladder to the Moon (2006) was inspired by Georgia O'Keeffe's paintings of Manhattan skyscrapers in the 1920s, before her move to New Mexico. Daugherty writes one section from a nighttime vantage point up high and another as if looking up from below.
