About

Jennifer Higdon is one of the most distinguished composers working in America today, and her music is a perfect fit for the Nashville Symphony, which has long maintained a commitment to championing the country’s most important voices. All Things Majestic is a four-movement suite which vividly captures the breath-taking beauty of the American landscape, and her wonderfully expressive concertos for viola and oboe bring out the unique textures and sonorities of these frequently overlooked solo instruments.

Higdon’s Viola Concerto was written for the distinguished violist Roberto Díaz, who plays it on this disc.

Giancarlo Guerrero and the Nashville Symphony have championed several of America’s foremost composers, including Joan Tower, John Adams, John Corigliano, and Richard Danielpour among others. Their recent recording of Michael Daugherty’s Tales of Hemingway, American Gothic, and Once upon a Castle (8559798) has been nominated for three Grammy awards – Best Classical Instrumental Solo (with cellist Zuill Bailey), Best Classical Compendium and Best Contemporary Classical Composition.

Naxos has released several albums of Jennifer Higdon’s music, including Sky Quartet and other early chamber works (8559752), Piano Trio (8559298), and Soprano Saxophone Concerto (8572889).
