Paavo Jarvi — whom Steven Rosen interviews (among others) for our cover story this week — stops by Joseph Beth Booksellers 5:30-7 p.m. to celebrate the release of his 17th album, American Portraits, with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Yes, 17th. Talk about prolific — take that Lil Wayne! —-
The album, which features live concert recordings of works by American composers, is the first release from the CSO's new in-house label and is part of the orchestra's year-long celebration of Jarvi's 10th and final season as music director.
