Sir Peter Paul Rubens painting Head of Medusa, oil on canvas, circa 1617-1618

Seth Boustead talks with composer Stacy Garrop about the new recording of her Mythology Symphony inspired by Greek myths. Starting with the exhilarating opening movement Becoming Medusa, which tells the story of Medusa, a beautiful woman turned into a hideous monster, to the quiet sounds of Penelope Waits, the second movement with the touching tale of a wife waiting for her heroic husband, and much, much more!
