New Louis Andriessen Recording from Nonesuch

Post by Modernistfan » Fri Jan 15, 2021 5:27 pm

A new recording of works by Louis Andriessen will be released on Nonesuch in March. The title of the album is "The Only One," and the performers are the Los Angeles Philharmonic conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen with Nora Fischer (conductor Ivan Fischer's daughter) as soprano soloist. I do not have details of the works on the recording as yet, and I shall post further details when available. This is a must-buy for me.

That could be interesting. Because we've also been discussing Adams' "Short Ride in a Fast Machine" I just pulled and played a CD containing that piece and Andriessen's "De Snelheid", which I think could be subtitled, "Short Ride in a Fast Machine" meets "Sleigh Bells".
It's been a while since I played either piece and the Andriessen is very fresh to my ears.
Do you think this is an older recording, or a return engagement for Salonen?
