We’ve expanded our association with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra by creating a new video announcing an historic collaboration between the orchestra and Argentinean composer Osvaldo Golijov. ASO performances of five major Golijov works will be held at Atlanta Symphony Hall, Emory University, New York’s Lincoln Center and California’s Ojai Festival, and will be recorded by Deutsche Grammophon. The ASO and DGG are using our announcement video to promote the concerts and recordings on the web.
Frank Dans, the ASO’s Artistic Administrator, was kind enough to offer a quote. “WaveGuide Studios is an outstanding partner with the Atlanta Symphony. We often have very short production schedules, and budgets are always tight. But the WaveGuide team is always accommodating and the quality of their work is exceptional. And, they really understand us. The videos they produce are part of the concert experience, and they take that seriously. The ASO is a world-class orchestra, and the work WaveGuide Studios does for us is world-class, too.”
We’ve been the ASO’s production partners for the "Meet the Composer" video series since 2003. These interviews are conducted by ASO Music Director Robert Spano to introduce audiences to unfamiliar works and the composers who wrote them. The videos have become a useful promotional and educational tool for the ASO, and are a part of the orchestra’s historical archive.
On a separate note, the ASO and Chorus have recorded with audiophile label Telarc for more than two decades. The latest CD release features two ASO-commissioned works, “The Here and Now” by Christopher Theofanidis and “Paul Revere's Ride” by David Del Tredici. Telarc plans to use our “Meet the Composer” videos with both composers to promote these world premiere recordings on their web site and in a promotional DVD.
