Nashville Symphony: Music of Jennifer Higdon
Higdon: Oboe Concerto (18:10)
James Button, oboe; Nashville Symphony / Giancarlo Guerrero
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 breathtaking 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.
