Jennifer Higdon

“I am so thrilled that the Nashville Symphony has recorded these three works for release on Naxos. The orchestra and Maestro Guerrero have been an absolute delight to work with, and because this label has the best distribution on the planet, I know that two of the works that fill a repertoire need – the Viola Concerto and the Oboe Concerto – now have a voice out in the world. Concluding the disc is All Things Majestic, a symphonic suite that honors the American National Parks, through musical images of the Grand Teton National Park. It is an honor to be able to share this music with the world.”

Jennifer Higdon is one of the most distinguished composers working in America today, and her music is a perfect fit for the Nashville Symphony, which has long maintained a commitment to championing the country’s most important voices. All Things Majestic is a four-movement suite which vividly captures the breath-taking beauty of the American landscape, and her wonderfully expressive concertos for viola and oboe bring out the unique textures and sonorities of these frequently overlooked solo instruments.
