With eight Grammy nominations and millions of albums sold world-wide, Amos has become something of a living legend. Her solo career has seen Amos' evolution from acoustic piano to more electronica and orchestral stylings. Her latest release is her 12th solo album overall and came together when she was approached by Deutsche Grammophone, a German Classical label, and invited to compase a 21st song cycle based on classical music themes. "Night Hunters" is the result - an album steeped in classical traditions, paying homage to Bach, Chopin, Debussy, and also Amos' classical piano training. Featuring The Apollon Musagete Quartet and the Berlin Philharmonic clarinet soloist Andreas Ottensamer.
In this session, listen to Tori Amos play live and talk to WXPN's Michaela Majoun, about the album and performing live.
