NEW RELEASES

The Nashville Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Giancarlo Guerrero, has released a recording of three of Higdon's works.  All Things Majestic vividly captures the breathtaking beauty of the American landscape, and her expressive concertos bring out the unique textures and sonorities of these frequently overlooked solo instruments.  BBC Music Magazine writes that "Higdon's Viola Concerto (2015) is striking in its playful, jazz-like rhythmic drive, carried off with great charisma by soloist Roberto Diaz, while the Oboe Concerto (2005) showcases the instrument's lyricism and mischief, with a fine performance from James Button".
