Orange mountain music

Mike Mills and John Adams

Rock Concerto - Road Movies - Symphony No. 3

The focus had to be on the melodies, Mills says of his initial thoughts on writing the music. ...I started by writing the chords. I tried to put the melody on that, and tried to think of it with the violin in mind but since I ve never written for violin before, that was really a hypothetical approach.
This was composer Mike Mills approach to composing his first work for the concert hall after a long career as a member of the successful rock band REM. His 2016 Concerto for Violin, Rock Band, and String Orchestra recorded here in its world premiere recording on Orange Mountain Music and features virtuoso Robert McDuffie, an All-Star Ensemble of rock musicians including John Neff, Williams Tonks, Patrick Ferguson, masterful string arrangements by David Mallamud, and the MCS Ensemble - an elite group of string players from the McDuffie Centre for Strings.
