    Hallowed Ground

    November marks the anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. Those powerful words are delivered here by Dr. Maya Angelou, a mere seven months before her passing at age 86. Hallowed Ground is dedicated in her memory. The album also features live recordings of two new works commissioned by the Orchestra. Nico Muhly’s Pleasure Ground is a musical portrait of the iconic designer Frederick Law Olmsted. David Lang’s Mountain is a musical portrait of composer Aaron Copland. Both these pieces represent a true spirit of innovation in Cincinnati.

    Lux et Veritas

The release includes seven new pieces composed by Will Todd. All of the new pieces flow from grappling with difficult things and working towards a restful, inner solution. .

  • Dean Burry

    Baby Kintyre

    As an opera composer, one is not often given the opportunity to create a work employing a story that is in the process of unfolding. Yet on a warm sunny day in October 2007, Dean Burry was in attendance as the child known only as Baby Kintyre was laid to rest 82 years after his mysterious death.
  • Carl Nielsen

    Symphonies 1 & 4

    Raised in the Danish countryside as the son of a poor folk musician, Nielsen’s indomitable courage and infinite curiosity helped him become one of the greatest symphonists of the 20th century. With this acclaimed series of recordings, Nielsen crosses the Atlantic as the New York Philharmonic and music director Alan Gilbert shed new light on his uniquely Nordic symphonic sound. Dacapo reaches the 1st and 4th symphonies, the former of which has never previously been performed–not to say recorded–by the New York Philharmonic.
