Azerbaijan's Greatest Composer

The man who brought opera to Azerbaijan is a national hero, but when the Soviets occupied his country in 1920, composer Uzeyir Hajibeyov fell silent for years. Now his works have been restored and they are available on a new set of CDs. Sunday on Weekend All Things Considered, guest host Jacki Lyden talks about Hajibeyov's music and life.
