High Notes: Randall Goosby & Ludovic Morlot

This event was recorded on July 6, 2022 at Hotel Jerome during the 2022 High Notes Series, in partnership with The Aspen Music Festival and Aspen Public Radio.

In this conversation Randall and Ludovic discuss their performance practices and experiences while working together for the Aspen Chamber Symphony Concert taking place at the Aspen Music Festival and School on July 8, 2022. The work done on both Mendolson’s Scenes from A Midsummer Night's Dream, op. 61 and his Violin Concerto in E minor, op. 64 are discussed in this public event in order to give the listener more insight into the world of Aspen Music.

Signed exclusively to Decca Classics in 2020 at the age of 24, American violinist Randall Goosby is acclaimed for the sensitivity and intensity of his musicianship alongside his determination to make music more inclusive and accessible, as well as bringing the music of under-represented composers to light. June 2021 marks the release of Goosby’s debut album for Decca entitled Roots, a celebration of African-American music which explores its evolution from the spiritual through to present-day compositions. Randall Goosby has performed with orchestras across the United States including the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, Nashville Symphony and New World Symphony.

Following eight years as Music Director, Ludovic Morlot is now Conductor Emeritus of the Seattle Symphony. Ludovic’s innovative programming encompassed not only his choice of repertoire, but theatrical productions and performances outside the traditional concert hall space. He participates in numerous collaborations with musicians from different genres, commissions and world premieres including his work with violinist Randall Goosby.
