Classical 104.9 FM: New Recordings & New Music

Montreal Symphony / Kent Nagano
The John Adams Album

We've been previewing some terrific new recordings for our Classical 104.9 FM music library. Some of these new CDs feature familiar material; some explore brand-new musical landscapes.

Conductor Kent Nagano leads the Montreal Symphony in a survey of American composer John Adams' iconic music from the 1980s. The violinist Rachel Barton Pine explores concertos by Khachaturian and Dvorak. And, the American composer Michael Torke presents a CD of brand-new instrumental concertos.

These are just a few of the new recordings we've added to our library in November. You'll be hearing these performances on the air this month!
