John Weinzweig
Edge of the World (OSM premiere)

The Edge of the World: Music for Radio No. 2 is a suite based on music from the 1945-46 CBC radio series The White Empire which featured narratives about northern explorers and was accompanied with a score written by John Weinzweig. Weinzweig's music for this series uses Inuit folk melodies and rhythmic figuring to add to the northern character of the work.
