On the latest edition of the Music Library’s YouTube series, librarian Gisele Schierhorst presents the story of the Louisville Orchestra. More specifically, she takes us on a tour of the library’s collection of First Edition Records, Louisville’s own recording label. In the latter half of the 20th century, the orchestra produced recordings of a wide range of contemporary composers. Our LP collection includes records ranging from George Crumb’s Echoes of Time and the River to Peggy Glanville-Hick’s opera Transposed Heads.
All of these records can be checked out and listened to at the Music Library on the first floor of the Melville Library building.
