A session report – with photos – from Abbey Road for Kenneth Fuchs's new Naxos album
JoAnn conducts the LSO in five orchestral works
In August last year the London Symphony Orchestra and JoAnn Falletta recorded a collection of orchestral works by the American composer Kenneth Fuchs. On the programme was a viola concerto, Divinum Mysterium, written for and played by the LSO's principal viola, Paul Silverthorne, as well as a Concerto grosso (a re-working of Fuchs's Fourth String Quartet) which features the four section principals. James Jolly attended these Naxos sessions and spoke to both Ken Fuchs and JoAnn Falletta. The photographs were taken by Christian von Rosenvinge. The album is available as CD and download - which you can buy from Amazon
