Composer Fred Lerdahl’s music has been commissioned and performed by major chamber ensembles and orchestras in the United States and around the world. Bridge Records is producing an ongoing series devoted to his music. Volume Five includes performances by Windscape, Quattro Mani, the Weiss-Kaplan-Stumpf Trio and The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra.
Symphony Spotlight highlights the careers of orchestral musicians across the country. My guest for our August segment is Herb Smith, trumpeter with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in Rochester, NY. In addition to his orchestral work, Herb is the leader of his own jazz quartet, trumpet instructor at the Eastman Community Music School, and an composer/arranger.
