    Odna Zhizn · Symphonies Nos. 3 & 4 · Prospero's Rooms

    Grammy nominated, ’Best Orchestral Performance’  ★★★★ BBC Music Magazine

    Critics’ Choice 2016 Gramophone  Best 50 Albums of 2016 NPR Music

    This album presents four world premiere recordings of works by Christopher Rouse (b. 1949), the New York Philharmonic’s second Marie-Josée Kravis Composer- in-Residence, three of them composed for the Orchestra and Music Director Alan Gilbert. Taken together, the Fourth Symphony, Prospero’s Rooms, and Odna Zhizn bear witness to a remarkable period of artistic collaboration between the legendary Orchestra, its celebrated Music Director, and one of today’s most evocative American composers.

    "Chris Rouse is one of the most important composers working today. ... He actually shapes the sound and the flow of his music in a way that only great composers can.” Alan Gilbert
