Eric Whitacre “decomposes” with Apollo Chorus at Northwestern University
“He shared his early dream of being a member of Depeche Mode, his obsessive nature with the pieces he’s working on (which right now includes a choral cover of Trent Reznor’s Hurt that we’re excited to hear), and the tonal changes in his work from an idyllic world-view to a more real place.
