This Double CD release celebrates the memory of John F. Kennedy, and the 50th anniversary of his inauguration as U.S. President, by coupling new and historic recordings by the National Symphony Orchestra of Washington, D.C.

The first disc features Christoph Eschenbach conducting the 50th anniversary concert at the Kennedy Center, recorded live on January 22-24. It includes the world premiere recording of Peter Lieberson's Remembering JFK (An American Elegy), with famous actor Richard Dreyfuss narrating excerpts from three speeches of President Kennedy. Also included are Bernstein's popular Symphonic Dances from 'West Side Story'.

The second disc contains excerpts from the previously unreleased 1961 Inaugural Concert under then-Music Director Howard Mitchell, including radio commentary from the original broadcast. At the Kennedys' request, the Inaugural Program emphasized American composers, and the excerpts selected include John La Montaine's Overture From Sea to Shining Sea (commissioned by the NSO specifically for the Inaugural Concert) and the first movement from Randall Thompson's Testament of Freedom (with the Georgetown University Glee Club).

A particular focus is on the music of George Gershwin: the 2011 recording features acclaimed pianist Tzimon Barto as soloist in the Concerto in F, while the 1961 broadcast includes Rhapsody in Blue with piano soloist Earl Wild.

Issued during the NSO's 80th anniversary season, this release marks one of the highlights of Christoph Eschenbach's inaugural season as Music Director of the NSO and Music Director of the Kennedy Center, as well as the opening of a recording partnership with Ondine. The NSO's first commercial recording in ten years was made possible in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
