July update: having attended the world premiere of Christopher Rouse's 5th Symphony here in Dallas, I'm very excited to report that a debut recording is coming on Naxos, featuring the Nashville Symphony and Giancarlo Guerrero. It's paired with the composer's Concerto for Orchestra and Supplica.

Also on Naxos, Barthold Kuijken conducting "The Colorful Telemann," which is apparently just enough to fill a single CD.  ;D

The Nashville band and Mr Guerrero do good work.  Maybe I finally buy some Rouse.

My favorite Rouse albums so far are the NYPO/Gilbert disc and the Flute Concerto written for Sharon Bezaly. The Fifth Symphony is modeled after Beethoven's - it starts with the same rhythmic motif, but violently Rousified with dissonance, piercing brass, and a whole lot of percussion. I remember enjoying it in concert, and I remember the finale containing more bass drum than I have ever heard in a piece before.

Long-term planning.  (The back-to-back, post-Covid anniversary years of 2027 and 2028 will be a wondrous time for gluttonous collectors!)



For those collectors who have not snapped up Firkusny's major label recordings in other form.

YES!!! I’m all over this. Any idea when the release date will be?

Edit: Never mind, I found it: August 28th.
