WAN ORCHESTRE SYMPHONIQUE DE MONTREAL NAGANO
Ginastera – Bernstein – Moussa: Works for Violin and Orchestra by Andrew Wan and the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal conducted by Kent Nagano is a monumental new album that offers exceptional interpretations of major works. Recorded live in 2019, it includes Ginastera’s Violin Concerto, Op. 30, which requires no fewer than seven percussionists handling some four dozen instruments, Bernstein’s imposing Serenade for Solo Violin, Strings, Harp and Percussion that was inspired by Plato’s Symposium and Moussa’s Violin Concerto “Adrano”, a World Première and an OSM commission. Andrew Wan is equally at home as a soloist, chamber musician and concertmaster. In August 2008, he was named concertmaster of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra (MSO), making him one of the youngest leaders of a major symphony. His relationship with the orchestra began with performances of Elgar's Violin Concerto, which were hailed as one of the top two musical moments of 2007 by La Presse. As a soloist, he has appeared in the United States, China, New Zealand, Cuba, Argentina, Brazil, Switzerland and Canada.
