OSCyL to release their first CD on their own label under music director Andrew Gourlay

The Orquesta Sinfónica de Castilla y León (OSCyL) today announced the first release on their own label – a recording of Rachmaninov Symphony No 2 and The Isle of the Dead. This will be the culmination of the orchestra’s 25th anniversary celebrations. At the same time, it has been announced that Andrew Gourlay’ s tenure as Music Director will be renewed for another year.

 

“I’m incredibly proud of what the OSCyL has achieved in its first 25 years,” comments Gourlay. “The OSCyL is still relatively young, but I truly believe that
it is becoming one of the great orchestras of the world. I hope that this recording will be the first of many on our new label, and will take the OSCyL
further afield. For the first recording on our new label, we wanted to show what the orchestra can do, and what better way than with major symphonic repertoire? Rachmaninov was one of the first composers I performed with the OSCyL, and I was so impressed with the way they captured his style of
music. The music of Rachmaninov has also been a constant thread in my life, in no small part down to my Russian heritage, so it felt like the perfect fit.”

 

The next disc on the new label will be a recording of Shostakovitch Symphony No 10 which the orchestra will perform in February 2019.
