David Bernard shared Park Avenue Chamber Symphony's post.July 22nd, 2017 at 12:40pm
I am immensely proud and grateful to the 300 musicians who brought their outstanding talent, artistry, and musicianship to this recording. Their intense music making and relentless determination can be heard in every note and every phrase, bringing an electricity to this performance that is a powerful reminder of our shared experience preparing this incredible work for this recording and the Carnegie Hall concert that followed.

I am thrilled we can share the memory of this collaboration with you through this recording, and hope you enjoy it!
