Podcast: All in the family. 3 concertos. 1 orchestra.
February 2, 2018
Principal players from the Nashville Symphony Orchestra step up to the solo spotlight in world premiere recordings of 3 wind concertos. Frank Ticheli’s Clarinet Concerto pays homage to a different American composer in each of its three movements; Brad Warnaar’s Horn Concerto attests to the composer’s own professional mastery of the instrument; while Behzad Ranjbaran’s Flute Concerto is imbued with the rhythms, melodies and instrumental colours of his native Iran. Raymond Bisha introduces this latest release in the American Classics series.
