Nico Muhly recording project!!


So, everyone classically 'in the know' in LA knows LA Master Chorale rocks and rolls about as much as a chorale can, on their own and with Maestro Dudamel and the LA Phil. Those of us in LAMC know how much we get to rock out with new composers, new works, premieres and the like - it's what makes what we do a living art. Now, June 2010, LAMC has scored its first recording deal in a while, on its own terms, and, I'll say it, we are very excited to be collaborating with Mr. Nico Muhly, the millenial wunderkind, whose blog reads like a cheeky New Yorker musing. His music is bright, minimal, direct, and catchy. LAMC sings his music well. And so a collaboration is born, June 2010.
