A Concerto Born in Baltimore

By Dyana Neal | Posted in Host Blogs, Interviews | No Comments

This weekend, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will present the world premiere of Baltimore-based composer Jonathan Leshnoff’s Guitar Concerto. The piece was commissioned by Music Director Marin Alsop and the BSO; Manuel Barrueco will be the soloist. Earlier this week, I spoke with Jonathan Leshnoff about the new work, his creative process, and Mr. Barrueco’s very active role in helping the piece come to fruition.
