The Old and the New: An Interview with Composer Dinuk Wijeratne

March 19, 2021

His work “A letter from the After-life” from Two Pop Songs on Antique Poems features on TSO On Demand: Vivaldi’s Four Seasons from March 26.

Listen as he talks about his unique style and myriad influences with The New Classical 96.3FM host, Kathleen Kajioka:
