Most Recent Releases

Bernstein and Williams

The album, Stéphane Denève’s first recordings with the SLSO, revolve around love: Bernstein’s Serenade was inspired by musings on love from Plato’s Symposium while Williams’ work was arguably inspired and eventually dedicated to his suddenly deceased wife. By combining these two concert pieces, this album centers the symphonic work of Bernstein and Williams, two composers closely associated with their music for films.

  • Release Date: April 2024
  • Artists: Stéphane Denève, conductor | James Ehnes, violin
  • Repertoire: Leonard Bernstein, Serenade after Plato’s Symposium | John Williams, Violin Concerto No. 1

Mozart: Piano Concerto Nos. 17 & 24

The album’s selected works stand as emblems of the extraordinary theatricality of Mozart’s piano concertos as performed by Orli Shaham, conducted by David Robertson. Each highlights the spirit of dialogue between soloist and orchestra, the ever-shifting exchange of musical ideas, colors, and textures used by Mozart to create a world of limitless dramatic possibilities.

  • Release Date: August 2019
  • Artists: David Robertson, conductor | Orli Shaham, piano
  • Repertoire: W.A. Mozart, Piano Concerto Nos. 17, K. 453 and 24, K. 491

Adams: Violin Concerto

The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra with former Music Director David Robertson are featured on a new recording of John Adams’ Violin Concerto with violinist Leila Josefowicz, released by Nonesuch Records. It was described by the Boston Globe as having “the qualities of intelligence, craftsmanship, and quirkiness that have always marked the composer and his work; this time Adams also mingles virtuoso show with soul, popular appeal with the staying power that comes from intellectual interest.”

  • Release Date: April 2018
  • Artists: David Robertson, conductor | Leila Josefowicz, violin
  • Repertoire: John Adams, Violin Concerto

The Gershwin Moment
