Podcast: A quartet of world premieres. Falletta conducts Fuchs.
August 3, 2018
Kenneth Fuchs celebrates a 15-year association with conductor JoAnn Falletta and the London Symphony Orchestra upon the release of these world premiere recordings of three concertos (respectively for piano, electric guitar and alto saxophone) and a song cycle for countertenor and orchestra. Variety is the hallmark of the works’ scoring, while an easy-sounding mastery is the hallmark of Fuchs, one of the finest composers in the United States today. Raymond Bisha samples this brilliant buffet of a line-up that features an outstanding assembly of soloists, conductor and orchestra.
