Nonesuch to Record John Adams's "City Noir" with St. Louis Symphony
Nonesuch Records returns to Powell Hall in St. Louis, Missouri, this weekend to record the St. Louis Symphony's performances of John Adams's City Noir, conducted by Music Director David Robertson, this Friday and Saturday, February 15 and 16. John Adams will be in attendance for the recording. The Saturday evening performance will also be broadcast live as part of the regular STL Symphony broadcast series on St. Louis Public Radio, 90.7-KWMU, and streamed live at stlpublicradio.org.
Additionally, Nonesuch will be back in Powell Hall during the St. Louis Symphony's 2013–14 season to record the October 5 and 6, 2013, performances of a new John Adams concerto written for saxophone, a St. Louis Symphony co-commission and local premiere. The concerto and City Noir will be combined and released by Nonesuch Records at a future date. The St. Louis Symphony's last release with Nonesuch in 2009 included John Adams's Doctor Atomic Symphony and was named "Classical Album of the Decade" by the Times of London.
