I think his violin and flute concerto were originally 'recorded' by the SLO.  

Both the violin and flute concertos were both 'originally recorded' by the London Symphony Orchestra in 1981 and was originally released by Varese Sarabande on LP/Vinyl in 1983 and, later, on CD.

However, the violin concerto was premiered by the SLO in January of 1981

After the Williams concert on the November 1, the Violin Concerto is on Saturday and Sunday Nov 2 and 3 with the Nov 2 concert being streamed on radio online:

(Tickets are available too for those near St Louis.)

 

Here's the full program which is a nice combo - another great American composer (Barber - popularly known because his music was used in films) and a modern (in the post-Romantic era sense) French composer with Williams listed without apology right alongside for one of his concert pieces. Presumably, this is the revised version of the concerto.

 

Stéphane Denève, conductor
James Ehnes, violin

BARBER Adagio for Strings
J. WILLIAMS Violin Concerto
SAINT-SAËNS Symphony No. 3, "Organ" 

Hollywood sneaks into Powell Hall. John Williams was working on scores for Steven Spielberg’s earliest films when he wrote his Violin Concerto. Popular soloist James Ehnes joins the SLSO for this performance. Barber’s Adagio has moved audiences in movies such as Platoon and Amélie, and Saint-Saëns gave “everything I was able to give” to a symphony of truly cinematic scope.

I wish he would swing by to Houston.  It's only a thousand miles away!

This is mostly the same program Denéve conducted in Boston a couple of years ago. Exception is the Barber -- in Boston they performed Higdon's Blue Cathedral.

I'd love to hear "Blue Cathedral" live!  Most of the recordings I've heard just don't get loud enough for the fine details near the end.
