Summary Martin Bookspan interviews American composer of contemporary classical music, musicologist, and flutist Claire Polin. Polin talks about the current status of women composers, and about sexism in music. She speaks about both of her careers: as a composer, and as a flutist. The composer also discusses in detail each of the following works, excerpts of which are then played during the interview: Summer settings (for harp), The journey of Owain Madoc, Consecutivo: study on a requiem (for flute/alto flute, clarinet/bass clarinet, violin, violoncello, piano) (1966), and Infinito: a requiem (for alto saxophone, soprano solo, narrator, and chorus).
