Peter Boyer records his Symphony with the LPO at Abbey Road Studios for Naxos

Peter Boyer recently conducted the London Philharmonic Orchestra at Abbey Road Studio One in recording sessions for his upcoming album on the Naxos label. Boyer led the LPO in three sessions to record five of his concert works. The centerpiece of the recording was his Symphony No. 1, a three-movement, 24-minute work commissioned and recently premiered by the Pasadena Symphony, and dedicated to the memory of Leonard Bernstein.

Other Boyer works recorded were "Festivities," commissioned by Gerard Schwarz for the 50th anniversary of the Eastern Music Festival; "Silver Fanfare," the first movement of "On Music's Wings," commissioned for the 25th anniversary of the Pacific Symphony, "Celebration Overture," commissioned by the Henry Mancini Institute, and "Three Olympians" for string orchestra, commissioned by the Conductors Institute.

One of the world's finest orchestras, the London Philharmonic Orchestra has a renowned legacy of both classical and film recordings. Among many other distinctions, they were chosen to record all the world's national anthems for the London 2012 Olympics. They are perhaps most widely heard as the orchestra which recorded Howard Shore's multiple-Oscar-winning scores for "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy.

This album will be Boyer's second in the acclaimed Naxos American Classics Series, which includes repertoire by major American composers past and present, and which has garnered numerous Grammy Awards in recent years. Boyer's recording is scheduled for release in February 2014.
