In this inaugural episode, composer Daron Hagen chats with filmmaker H. Paul Moon at the Wintergreen Music Festival in the Appalachian mountains of Virginia, where Daron has just premiered his feature-length score The Passion of Jekyll & Hyde for chamber orchestra (watch the complete film fused with his original music in concert at zenviolence.com/jekyll). He also recently released his memoir entitled Duet With the Past, and in this hour of conversation, we talk about that book, his insights as a composer, and his memories of peers like Gian Carlo Menotti, Ned Rorem, David Diamond, Leonard Bernstein, and Samuel Barber.
