Christopher Theofanidis: Creation/Creator release by ASO Media

Christopher Theofanidis: Creation/Creator World Premiere

Christopher Theofanidis's original composition for soloists, chorus, and orchestra – Creation/Creator – is an ambitious undertaking. Interweaving texts and ideas from philosophy, science, religion, poetry, and literature, his Creation/Creator gives, as Theofanidis describes, a "profoundly deeper understanding of the relationship between these two subjects and to remove a limiting sense of a passive relationship between 'God' and humanity." ASO Media recordings are distributed by Naxos.

Vaughan Williams: Dona nobis pacem, Symphony No. 4 & The Lark Ascending

World War I had not only a profound and deep impact on the world, but on Ralph Vaughan Williams as well. Robert Spano and the Grammy Award-winning Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Chorus, and production team delve into three pieces that reflect the composer's view on the war and the time itself. This recording brings an often poignant, sometimes eerie, quality to three of his most notable works. ASO Media recordings are distributed by Naxos.


Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 3 - Symphonic Dances

This recording presented by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra is the result of a long-standing friendship between acclaimed pianist Garrick Ohlsson and the Symphony. Mr. Ohlsson was the first soloist Spano ever worked with when he made his professional debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and the two have shared many happy collaborations since.
