Podcast: A fervent expression of hope. Jonathan Leshnoff’s Fourth Symphony.

May 17, 2019

LESHNOFF, J.: Symphony No. 4 / Guitar Concerto / Starburst
Jason Vieaux, Nashville Symphony Orchestra, Giancarlo Guerrero
8.559809

Complementing the artist line-up of Giancarlo Guerrero and the Nashville Symphony on this recording are the Violins of Hope, a poignant collection of restored instruments that survived the Holocaust. Jonathan Leshnoff wrote his Symphony No. 4 with this unique set of orchestral voices in mind; Raymond Bisha introduces the performance and the background to its conception. Leshnoff is one of America’s most frequently performed living composers and the programme on this new recording also includes Starburst, his most frequently performed work, and his Guitar Concerto, which Guerrero considers “one of the greatest additions to guitar and orchestra repertoire in recent years.” The soloist is Jason Vieaux.
