CSO Sounds

Riccardo Muti & the Chicago Symphony Orchestra have released Mason Bates' electro-acoustic symphony Alternative Energy. The recording is available only on iTunes, click here to purchase.

“A formidable and inventive new work... Its four movements offer a time-traveling montage, from 1896 through the year 2222, that is alternately whimsical, moving and eerie. It’s also Bates’ most ambitious and epically scaled work to date, and it shows his mastery of the orchestral landscape like nothing before it.” San Francisco Chronicle

Recorded live at their 2012 premieres, Mason Bates’ Alternative Energy and Anna Clyne’s Night Ferry are united on this latest release from CSO Resound. Both works were commissioned by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and premiered under the baton of CSO Music Director Riccardo Muti.
