Each month here we visit with a member of the community to find out what music they’ve been digging.

Yuja Wang’s recent performance at Carnegie Hall got me into the mood to listen to Shostakovich’s Second Piano Concerto, in particular the second movement. Arvo Pärt’s piano music, such as “Für Alina,” and vocal music, such as “De Profundis,” are always favorites. When needing to decompress, I’ve been listening to Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Cole Porter Song Book. When I need a little pick-me-up, I’ve been listening to Jacob Collier’s DJesse series and especially “Sleeping on My Dream.” My two-year-old daughter is obsessed with Yo-Yo Ma’s Bach Cello Suites and bassist Linda Oh—so they are also on my playlist!
