Playlists for August 1-5: Nadia’s Boulangerie

Nadia Boulanger taught and influenced an entire generation of musicians, from Aaron Copland and Ástor Piazzolla to Philip Glass and Quincy Jones, and this week we’ll hear some of her compositions and performances alongside those of her prolific students.
