BSO receives $38,500 grant from NEA

October 19, 1990

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra has been awarded a $38,500 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts for their recording of the music of Michael Torke.

The BSO has recently embarked on a survey of this young composer's works. The recording, the first in the BSO's new agreement with Decca/Argo Records, includes "Ash," "Bright Blue Music," "Ecstatic Orange," "Purple" and "Verdant Music."

This grant is the second one David Zinman and the BSO have received from the NEA. The first was for their recording of Christopher Rouse's Symphony No. 1 and "Phantasmata" for the Nonesuch label. The BSO will play works by Barber and Copland in their future recordings with Decca.
