Summary: Nonesuch Records releases City Noir-comprising the title piece by composer John Adams and the debut recording of his Saxophone Concerto. Both pieces are performed by the St. Louis Symphony led by Music Director David Robertson. Saxophonist Timothy McAllister is featured on both pieces.City Noir is a symphony inspired by the peculiar ambience and mood of Los Angeles films, especially those produced in the late 40s and early 50s says Adams. My music is an homage not necessarily to the film music of that period but rather to the overall aesthetic of the era.
