HARMONIA MUNDI // HMM902611 // VÖ: Mai 2021

In this recording, American conductor James Gaffigan invites us to visit his country in one of the most brilliant examples of his collaboration with the Luzerner Sinfonieorchester. The multi-faceted programme includes Leonard Bernstein’s exuberant «Symphonic Dances from West Side Story» as well as the spiritually influenced Third Symphony by Charles Ives. Ruth Crawford’s «Andante for Strings» explores the emotional magic of dissonance in a kind of hypnotic, restless nocturne, while the boldly athletic «Toccata Festiva» for Organ and Orchestra reveals a surprising side of Samuel Barber.
