Dynamic American violinist Randall Goosby releases his keenly awaited second album on Decca Classics. The recording is a collaboration with the Grammy Award-winning partnership of Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Philadelphia Orchestra. Building on his debut album Roots (2021), which celebrated Black classical composers, this album showcases concertos by the trailblazing composer Florence Price and German romantic composer Max Bruch. Goosby is known for his desire to make music inclusive and accessible, bringing the work of under-represented composers to light. “I wanted to be the one to share these pieces in this way for the first time,” said Goosby of the new album – the first commercial recording and release by a major label of Florence Price’s violin concertos. It’s the latest installment of the Philadelphia Orchestra’s plan to record all her major orchestral works.
