Nonesuch Records has this week announced the release of American-Canadian violin virtuoso and new music advocate Leila Josefowicz‘s latest album: John Adams Violin Concerto.
Recorded with conductor David Robertson and the St. Louis Symphony, the disc features the 1993 Grawemeyer Award-winning Violin Concerto of acclaimed American composer John Adams.
“I am particularly sentimentally attached to John’s violin concerto because it was the first piece that I took on that I chose myself … it intrigued me, not knowing at all what the outcome would be …” Leila has told The Violin Channel.
“This became the start of a whole new direction of my repertory turning to the 21st century – of working with living composers,” she has said.
