Composer Russell Platt

Composer Russell Platt might not leap on stage with a single bound or bend notes with his bare hands, but he is, in fact, often disguised as a mild-mannered music reporter for a great metropolitan magazine (The New Yorker).  Platt’s “Eurydice, [your-id-a-see] A Serenade for Strings” has its American premiere this weekend (4/26 at 8pm and 4/27 at 2:30pm at Kleinhans) with JoAnn Falletta and the BPO.  WNED’s Peter Hall found out more.
