The Boston Symphony Orchestra has added another CD to its extensive discography: recent Boston Symphony Orchestra commissions of works by American composers Timo Andres, Eric Nathan, Sean Shepherd, and George Tsontakis. BSO Music Director Andris Nelsons leads the BSO musicians, who are members of Local 9-535 (Boston, MA), in recordings made live at Symphony Hall from February 2016 through February 2018. The album joins two other Boston Symphony Orchestra CDs issued earlier this year.

The latest album includes:

  • Eric Nathan, “the space of a door”
  • George Tsontakis, “Sonnets, Tone poems for English horn and orchestra”
  • Timo Andres, “Everything Happens So Much”
  • Sean Shepherd, “Express Abstractionism”
