Symphony Number One is devoted not only to commissioning and premiering substantial works by emerging composers, but also to recording and distributing these works for the public. In 2015, we recorded our debut album, followed by an EP, Emergence, each of which featured a stunning work for chamber orchestra by a compelling compositional voice.
Now, for the first time, we are releasing a full-length album exclusively featuring emerging composers. More represents the best of Symphony Number One: three stimulating new works for chamber orchestra by a slate of three of the next generation’s most promising voices, all lovingly prepared and performed in Baltimore.
