Marin Alsop made musical history with the BSO when she became the first woman Music Director of a major U.S. orchestra. Marin continues to promote and support underrepresented voices in classical music. The episode features composers who are trailblazers in their own right, with William Grant Still’s Darker America, Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue (featuring pianist Lura Johnson), and Roxanna Panufnik’s Two Composers, Four Hands.
