Conductor Andrew Gourlay and OSCyL Break Mold With New Album From Own Record Label
Pianist Claire Huangci Expresses Honesty, Humility with New Rachmaninov Album
Instead of following the typical classical music handbook, conductor Andrew Gourlay decided to write his own. As Music Director of the Orquesta Sinfónica de Castilla y León (OSCyL) in Spain, Andrew and the OSCyL announced this fall it launched its own recording label. Now, a few months later, the organization released its first recording, Rachmaninov: The Isle of the Dead / Symphony No. 2.
“For the first recording on our new label, we wanted to show what the orchestra can do, and what better way than with major symphonic repertoire?” Andrew said.
Pianist Claire Huangci felt drawn to the works of Sergei Rachmaninov, which led to the recent release of her fourth solo album, Rachmaninov: The Preludes, by Berlin Classics.
