Discography


Music Director Carl St.Clair has led the orchestra in numerous critically acclaimed albums including two piano concertos of Lukas Foss. Under his guidance, the orchestra has commissioned works which later became recordings, including William Bolcom's "Canciones de Lora" and "Prometheus," Michael Daugherty's "Mount Rushmore," Philip Glass' "The Passion of Ramakrishna," Richard Danielpour's An American Requiem and Elliot Goldenthal's Fire Water Paper: A Vietnam Oratorio with cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
