Adams, Sibelius, Berlioz

On February 19 and 20, 2016, the St. Louis Symphony performs Hector Berlioz’s overture to Béatrice et Bénédict, selections from Jean Sibelius’s The Tempest (with passages from the Shakespeare play performed by members of St. Louis Shakespeare Festival), and John Adams’s dramatic symphony Scheherazade.2, with soloist Leila Josefowicz.

My program notes begin on p. 26.

    • I agree, Tony. The live broadcast was amazing. I can’t wait to get a copy of the CD when it comes out. Leila Josefowicz is a virtuosa of the highest order, and David Robertson and the St. Louis Symphony are also sublime interpreters of Adams’s music.

      I hope it’s every bit as well-received as the City Noir/Saxophone Concerto CD was.

      Thanks for reading/commenting!
