Dear Symphony Patrons,
Our first commemorative video released in November of 2020 was wildly successful. That compilation featured and highlighted the most memorable moments of the LCSO musicians. And thus I thought, "Why not release a recording of some of our most renowned guest artists?"
As you can imagine, the orchestra, since my appointment in 1999, has featured well over a hundred guest artists, all of whom have solo careers across the globe. However, the artists featured in this video clearly have international careers performing with major symphony orchestras and in the most prestigious halls around the world.
We are fortunate to have had these artists grace our stage at NMSU. This recording is not excerpts, but full movements of concerti. Many thanks to the artists and their managers for allowing us to release this commemorative recording.
Please enjoy. I hope they bring back wonderful memories of past performances. Many thanks to you for all the years of support of this wonderful orchestra...your very own LCSO.
