Aurora Orchestra’s 'Road Trip' takes listeners on a journey across America with a programme that juxtaposes core American compositions by John Adams, Charles Ives and Aaron Copland with specially commissioned arrangements by the American composer Nico Muhly, short new works by Aurora Orchestra member Max Baillie and Muhly’s arrangement of Paul Simon’s hit Hearts and Bones.

The collaborations - with Muhly and American singer-songwriter guest soloists Sam Amidon and Dawn Landes - are inspired and refreshing for a classical album and typical of the way the Aurora Orchestra approaches all its programmes. Founder and Principal Conductor Nicholas Collon is in charge of the proceedings. This is the orchestra’s first recording for Warner Classics.

Aurora Orchestra blew away the remains of holiday torpor with a terrific concert billed as a road trip through musical Americana. As always with this band everything was carried off in fine style, and Nicholas Collon, their chief conductor, directed with an easy authority.” - The Telegraph
