OUT NOW | Violinist Leila Josefowicz's New CD: 'John Adams Violin Concerto' [LISTEN]

Nonesuch Records has announced the release of violinist Leila Josefowicz's latest album: 'John Adams Violin Concerto'

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.

"I hope listeners are intrigued by the many different sounds that this great work offers ... allusions to jazz and swing ... extraterrestrial sounds coming from the electronic keyboards ... a kind of sonic euphoria that is so unique and unexpected."
