Digital Minimalism

The Saint Louis Symphony is back in the recording business. Gramophone reports that the SLSO and conductor David Robertson have released a new audio record of John Adams 1985 minimalist symphony Harmonielehre. The interesting twist this time around: no CD. This release is for download only.

You will be able find the record at Amazon.com and iTunes (US store). The Saint Louis Symphony is working with IODA on this project. The Adams piece marks the first in a series of planned releases. The next record the SLSO will release for download will be Stravinsky's Symphony in C, due in September.
