New Bretagne, the setting for the Victorian detective adventure Lamplight City, has menace and mystery lurking around every corner. Composer Mark Benis says it's that atmosphere and the divese characters, including Detective Miles Fordham, that provided the inspiration for his subtle soundtrack.

Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies, but surprisingly, Prokofiev created an alternative happy ending for his ballet version. Frederic Chiu will finally realize his 25-year dream to present this happy ending by giving audience members a chance to decide the fates of the star-crossed lovers in two performances at Drexel University in Philadelphia on November 17th and 18th. 

On October 13 and 14, the Stamford Symphony Orchestra celebrates "Bernstein at 100" with a program that includes the Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, Joan Tower's Tambor, and Aaron Copland's Clarinet Concerto. The orchestra is continuing its search for a new conductor, and Kate Remington talked with Edward about what he'd do with the orchestra if he's chosen, and about the works on the program.

As the creators of Minecraft continue to expand deeper into the realms of mythology, composer Gareth Coker continues to add to his repertoire of exotic instruments and music of heroic times. His two recent soundtracks, for Norse and Egyptian Mythologies, gave him the opportunity to work with some incredible world instrumentalists. As he told me, it was the stories of the gods that provided much of the inspiration for his music.

On its surface, The Gardens Between created by The Voxel Agents is a simple puzzle game. But as you follow two childhood friends, Arina and Frendt, on their explorations, you realize that you're helping them relive important memories. Composer Tim Shiel created a beautiful ambient soundtrack that perfectly fits the game's esthetic. As he told me, he wanted the music to sound as if it was part of the memory.
