The National Symphony Orchestra in Washington has announced the creation of on own recording label. The NSO has partnered with the London Symphony Orchestra’s label, LSO Live, to support the development and distribution of the NSO label, which will present recordings from performances at the Kennedy Center and beyond.

The press release says that the NSO has a rich history of recording, dating back to award-winning projects from the early 1970s with past music directors Antal Dorati, Mstislav Rostropovich and Leonard Slatkin. The Orchestra’s new self-produced label will also celebrate this legacy. The release of the first recording will feature Dvorak’s New World Symphony and Copland’s Billy the Kid under the baton of its seventh music director, Gianandrea Noseda. It will be available on CD and via streaming and download services worldwide on February 21.
