The world premiere of On a Wire
ATL’s newest label—ASO Media—isn’t hip-hop, it’s the Atlanta Symphony. Their first recording comes out this month: Robert Spano directing Jennifer Higdon’s concerto On a Wire and Michael Gandolfi’s choral work QED: Engaging Richard Feynman. Two more releases are scheduled for 2011. The ASO has compiled a thirty-two-year, Grammy-winning discography under Telarc but hopes to expand its reach by partnering with Naxos, the nation’s top independent classical music distributor. “We want to use the label as a way to disseminate all of our materials to as wide an audience as possible,” says President Stanley E. Romanstein, Ph.D.
