As much as some hate to admit it, violence has been part of the shared human heritage from the beginning of recorded time. Even today, in some parts of the world, trying to avoid violence is a daily activity. Composer John Mackey takes violence as his theme in his challenging new work, "Antique Violences." He brings us face-to-face with the human capacity for violence.
