Since 2015, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale and Pulitzer Prize- and GRAMMY Award-winning composer Caroline Shaw have developed a strong artistic relationship. Alongside Shaw's first commission for the organization, a song called "Red, Red Rose" composed for the Orchestra and mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter, PBO established it's New Music for Old Instruments initiative, an effort to commission and perform new works written expressly for period instruments. Subsequently, Shaw wrote two more songs for PBO and von Otter ("And So" and "The Edge"), and in 2019 composed a large-scale oratorio for the Orchestra, Chorale, and soloists Avery Amereau and Dashon Burton entitled The Listeners. This album encompasses PBO's blossoming relationship with Caroline Shaw, featuring the full collection of PBO/Shaw commissions thus far.
