Albany Symphony Music Director, David Alan Miller and Grammy-Award winning composer John Corigliano have once again earned international acclaim after being nominated for a 2017 International Classical Music Award (ICMA).
Released in July of 2016 by Naxos USA, Symphony No. 1 is the third recording completed by Miller and Corigliano and the second recording to receive international acclaim. In 2014, John Corigliano and David Alan Miller received a Grammy® award for Best Instrumental Solo for their recording of Conjurer with percussionist Evelyn Glennie and the Albany Symphony.
Corigliano’s Symphony No. 1 is an evocative musical portrait inspired by loved ones lost to the AIDS epidemic of the 80’s and 90’s as well as the “cumulative effect” of those losses. Miller's deeply emotional recording of Symphony No. 1 is the third recording of this work, but the first ever Naxos recording for the National Orchestral Institute Philharmonic, which is composed of elite conservatory students from across the United States and David Alan Miller’s 5th recording released on the Naxos Label.
On Saturday, January 7th at 7:30PM David Alan Miller will present John Corigliano’s Symphony No. 1 with the Albany Symphony at the Palace Theatre. Recognized as a leading voice in new American orchestral music, David Alan Miller is a driving force behind the Albany Symphony’s commitment to giving voice to new works by living American composers.
