PEABODY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
The Peabody Symphony Orchestra draws its members primarily from graduate and upper-division students of the highest level of musicianship and performs six to seven public concert programmes each season. Programming for the orchestra is designed to provide both its student musicians and the listening public with exposure to a rich and diverse repertoire, including not only standard orchestral selections, but also contemporary works, American music, and premières of new orchestral pieces. Peabody orchestras have regularly won ASCAP Awards for the Adventuresome Programming of Contemporary Music, and Peabody competition winners, faculty, and distinguished guest artists often perform concertos with the orchestras. This recording marks the first major label release for the Peabody Symphony Orchestra and was recorded and produced by the Conservatory’s own internationally renowned Recording Arts Department.
