Recording aims to help Nashville Symphony Orchestra build a new home
Naxos is to donate all the income from sales of Help Nashville Symphony Rebuild its Home towards the $10 million still needed to repair the orchestra’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center following damage from severe flooding in May.
The new digital-only release will feature a performance of Michael Daughtery’s Metropolis Symphony conducted by music director Giancarlo Guerrero.
2010 marks the tenth anniversary of the Nashville Symphony’s recording relationship with Naxos, whose US headquarters, in Franklin, are also Tennessee-based. The partnership has resulted in 17 recordings, with its Leonard Slatkin-conducted account of Joan Tower’s Made in America picking up three GRAMMY® Awards, including Best Classical Album and Best Orchestral Performance, in 2008.
Daugherty’s symphony will be available through all major online retailers and streaming services. It will retail at $3.99. Online retailer ArkivMusic.com has said it will also pass on all revenue from sales.
