Jonathan Leshnoff Symphony No. 3 and Piano Concerto

“What a powerful display of Stern’s grasp of form and the superb strings and winds he has shaped during his 15 years as music director. Stephen Powell’s finely modulated but focused baritone opens the last movement, a poetic narrative written to the soldier’s mother. Powell beautifully shapes extended vowels so that they move the line forward. Yang gives exciting pulse to the melodies and arpeggios with her perfect rhythmic weight and brilliant colors.” – Gil French, Classical Voice North America

Works on this recording:

  • Symphony No. 3 featuring Stephen Powell, baritone
  • Piano Concerto played by Joyce Yang, piano

Adam Schoenberg

Michael Stern, conductor
2018 GRAMMY® Nominee – Best Engineered Album (Classical) and
Best Contemporary Classical Composition (Picture Studies)

Says Schoenberg: “I have dreamt of having an orchestral disc of my music since first becoming a composer. This is an extraordinary gift, and I am thrilled to be sharing my music with all of you. The three pieces that you will soon experience embody my growth from student to professional composer. They each explore different styles, but my artistic voice remains consistent throughout.” Recently named one of the Top 10 most performed living classical composers by orchestras in the United States, Adam Schoenberg’s (b. November 15, 1980) music is “invigorating” (Los Angeles Times), and full of “mystery and sensuality” (The New York Times).

We are proud to present these new works, two of them commissioned by the Kansas City Symphony: American Symphony and Picture Studies. The collaboration between Schoenberg and Michael Stern is extraordinary. Schoenberg states: “He is the first conductor to champion my music. He understands it, embraces it, and gives it an emotional dimension that would otherwise not exist. I also must thank the musicians of the Kansas City Symphony. This is an orchestra that plays with tremendous vigor, spirit, and emotion.”

Works on this recording:

  • American Symphony
  • Finding Rothko
  • Picture Studies

Miraculous Metamorphoses

Michael Stern, conductor

“The Symphonic Metamorphosis features some outstanding playing right from the start. The witty interplay between the winds and strings is exceptional throughout. The warmly assertive brass section also deserves special mention. … The Prokofiev is also pretty wonderful. The Kansas City players really dig in to their parts, with plenty of grunts and snarls along the way. … This is great music taken seriously. … The Bartók easily outclasses many a version. It’s a swift, no-nonsense approach that serves as an ideal showcase for the terrific orchestral players on display.… Recorded at the new Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, this new disc deserves a home in the library of anyone who loves 20th Century music.” —Brian Wigman, Classical Net

Works on this recording:

  • Symphonic Metamorphosis on Themes of Carl Maria von Weber by Paul Hindemith
  • Love for Three Oranges Suite, Op. 33a by Sergei Prokofiev
  • Miraculous Mandarin, Op. 19/Sz 73: Suite by Béla Bartók
