The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra announces that as part of the culmination of its second annual One City, One Symphony project, it has released the live recording from the November 14 & 16 concerts, available as a free download on the CSO’s website. The downloads, which the entirety of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 and Mozart’s Davide Penitente, feature Music Director Louis Langrée conducting the Orchestra, the mighty May Festival Chorus and soloists Jane Archibald, Michèle Losier and Joseph Kaiser.

These downloads have been made possible by the CSO’s partnership with 90.9 WGUC, one of dozens of community partners for One City, One Symphony. The files were engineered by Chelsea VandeDrink, WGUC Mastering and Production Engineer.
“The emotional construction of [Mozart’s Davide Penitente] is built like Tchaikovsky’s Fourth, from the darkness to the light,” said Mr. Langrée. “From the repentance of King David, saying ‘I’m so sorry for what I did,’ and Tchaikovsky’s symphony starting with this anxiety, this doubt, this pain, this darkness, this lack of air, and going to the transformation, to the jubilation, to the transfiguration, to the eruption of this last movement is very similar,” he said.
This year the CSO explored themes of love, fate and redemption, as depicted by Tchaikovsky and his musical hero Mozart, in both the community-wide “listening parties” and the concert.
