Maybe you like to come home and rock out to Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd or Janice Joplin. But classical cellist Maya Beiser rocks out in a slightly different way. Zeppelin’s "Kashmir," is one of many rock songs Beiser "uncovered" on her 2014 album. The songs were arranged by MIT professor and composer Evan Ziporyn. Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti spoke with Beiser and Ziporyn on Radio Boston.
