JoAnn Falletta*, Music Director

[Daron speaks extemporaneously for six minutes about how the new Violin Concerto: Songbook for Michael Ludwig and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by music director JoAnn Falletta, was made and how it came about.]
The idea of composing a piece for Michael Ludwig and JoAnn Falletta came up over dinner after a concert performance by the Buffalo Philharmonic of my opera Shining Brow on the night of my birthday in 2006.
Appropriately enough, the concerto receives its premiere by Michael and JoAnn with the Buffalo Philharmonic May 13, 14, and 15th - a few days before the projected birth of my second son.
Shining Brow [has been released on Naxos under the baton of JoAnn Falletta, by the Buffalo Philharmonic].
LSO — Kenneth Fuchs, composer, 24 Sept 2014 [cached]
The recording represents the culmination of 18 years of friendship that began when Fuchs, conductor JoAnn Falletta and soloist Thomas Stacy were colleagues at the Juilliard School in New York City.
He suggested to Falletta that they record the works, even without previous public performances.
Falletta was enthusiastic, and, as it turned out, already had some recording dates booked with the LSO. Her sessions, moreover, would be the first in the new hall. She put Fuchs in touch with producer Michael Fine, who immediately put together the project details.
One challenge remained: Could Fuchs raise sufficient funds? The bill for a project of this magnitude - including orchestra fee, expenses of various participants, artist fees for the conductor and soloist, and production costs - could add up to $60,000 or more. Time was of the essence: with Falletta and Fine already in London, expenses could be shared, but the recording dates were scheduled for September, only six months away.
Falletta stepped to the podium at 10:30 on the dot. The room fell silent, and Falletta introduced Fuchs to the orchestra.
Communicating by intercom, Fine collaborated closely with Falletta, whose role was crucial and required prodigious stamina.
Falletta, who conducts orchestras around the world, currently holds the position of music director of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and the Virginia Symphony Orchestra. The New York Times has called her "one of the finest conductors of her generation.
Falletta has scheduled the world premiere of An American Place with the Virginia Symphony for March 5 and 6, 2005.
Fuchs first wrote this 15-minute work for wind and string quartets with French horn in 1985, and Falletta conducted the premiere at Juilliard.
Fuchs awoke to find that Falletta had slipped a note under his hotel door.
