Nico Muhly is a true musical polymath. He’s worked as an arranger with Bjork, Grizzly Bear, The National, and many others, but has also become an acclaimed composer in his own right. His piece, Two Boys, is utterly compelling – a modern morality tale centred around an internet murder and set over a hauntingly minimalist score.
