Album

Christopher Rouse, R. Strauss

New York Philharmonic

Play on Napster
Released:
Label: New York Philharmonic
Composer Christopher Rouse says he conceived of his "Oboe Concerto" as a "genial" work (as opposed to a "somber" one). But there's weight to it, too, in the hands of Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic. Hang in until the fourth minute, and you'll hear some crackling interaction between the soloist Liang Wang and ensemble. The orchestra does well in two Richard Strauss tone-poems as well: "Don Juan" and "Also sprach Zarathustra." The latter performance may not be as dramatic as Gustavo Dudamel's recent take, but this is another fine release in New York's series of live recordings.
