Leonard Slatkin Conducts Nashville Symphony in Joan Tower Recording

On June 29 and 30, 2006 Leonard Slatkin recorded works by Joan Tower with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra. The featured work on the album will be “Made in America”, a 15-minute orchestral piece, jointly commissioned by the American Symphony Orchestra League and Meet the Composer, as part of the new “Ford Made in America” commissioning programme, funded by the Ford Foundation. The work was first performed by the Glens Falls Symphony Orchestra in October, 2005 and will go on for performances by orchestras in every state during the 2005-2006 season. The two other works recorded along with “Made in America” are Tambor and Concerto for Orchestra. The recording sessions took place at the Nashville Symphony’s new Laura Turner Concert Hall at Schermerhorn Symphony Center. According to producer Tim Handley, the new hall will become ‘one of the great halls of the world’ and combines ‘wonderful acoustics with beautiful design’.
