Product Description:

Alan Hovhaness's symphonies contain hauntingly beautiful music full of fascinating orchestration and striking timbres. The Symphony No. 2, "Mysterious Mountain," was championed by Stokowski and Fritz Reiner, whose RCA recording put Hovhaness on the map. Like the other works on this disc, it reflects Hovhaness' view of mountains as "symbolic meeting points between the mundane and the spiritual world." A work of great depth and gorgeous effects, like the scintillating double fugue in the second movement, its molto cantabile section of the finale will delight fans of Vaughn Williams' Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis. The 66th Symphony, "Hymn to Glacier Peak," dates from Hovhaness' 80th year and shares the same spirit as "Mysterious Mountain," with a moving Andante whose oboe and flute coloratura float high above a bed of strings, evoking wide, open spaces. Perhaps best known is Symphony No. 50, "Mount St. Helens," which includes a depiction of the volcano's 1980 eruption that will show off audiophile systems. Gerard Schwarz is Hovhaness' leading contemporary advocate and he gets terrific performances from the British band, all recorded in typically superb Telarc sound. This is a "don't-miss" release. --Dan Davis
