Notes and Editorial Reviews

Following the release of two acclaimed recordings, Together and LIVE- Brahms Strauss Mahler, Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg has brought the New Century Chamber Orchestra on two successful national tours in the past two seasons.

Live footage from the February 9, 2011 tour concert at the Eli and Edyth Broad Stage in Santa Monica, California, features prominently in ON OUR WAY (?I believe so much in the moment, live music, that moment anything can happen, anything should happen!? says Nadja), and demonstrates the ensemble’s commitment to music making of the highest caliber. Featured works include: Hugo Wolf’s Italian Serenade; Astor Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires; Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings in C Major, Op. 48,
Read more as well as Alfred Schnittke’s Polka, and Bess, You Is My Woman Now, from George Gershwin’s ?Porgy and Bess.

The DVD also includes on-camera anecdotes, rehearsals and behind-the scenes footage. Candid comments from orchestra members (?You really get to show your soul, even though you’re one of 19, you get to say, musically, what you need to say.? –Dawn Harms, Associate Concertmaster), and Nadja herself (?When I signed the contract with this group, I felt my responsibility is to bring them to a position of recognition. I want them to be a household name.?), provide a personal look at the journey that these musicians have embarked upon. As stated by music critic Joshua Kosman in the San Francisco Chronicle’s Best of 2009, ? This stalwart string orchestra - always excellent, always overlooked - took a gamble on star power by bringing in the forceful violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg as its new music director, and got a jolt of much-needed vitality as a reward."
