The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra
have released their first commercial recording with Music Director Louis Langrée.
“Hallowed Ground is derived from Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address,” said Louis. “All of this music is inspired by sacred spaces — from the battlefield to incredible vistas to beautiful community gathering points.”
The disc includes Aaron Copland’s Lincoln Portrait
narrated by Dr Maya Angelou and pieces by Nico Muhly and David Lang, which were premiered by the orchestra earlier this year.
