Anthony De Ritis?

Power and Politics
Copland: Lincoln Portrait, narrated by Charles Osgood, the voice of CBS
Anthony De Ritis: Devolution, featuring Paul D. Miller a/k/a DJ Spooky
That Subliminal Kid
Beethoven: Symphony no. 5
Jung-Ho Pak, conductor
Strictly speaking, DJ Spooky isn't a rapper; he's a turntablist and one
of the godfathers of electronica. From what I've heard of his music,
he's an intelligent guy, and very effective at what he does. I actually
got a ticket for this, but couldn't go.
Now, if there's another piece out there for rapper and orchestra, I'll
withdraw my claim to the ten.
