For decades the "classic" recording of the Roy Harris Symphony 1933 was hard to come by.
I am referring to a recording made by Serge Kousevisky [sic] for Columbia Records [Kousevisky's
performances were with RCA for most of his career]. Although that authoritative record was
definitive, it relected the technology of that age. By that I mean inadequate when compared to
later High Fidelity, stereo, etc. So I was astonished to discover that a modern interpretation
of this work was not only available, but it is extemely good on al levels. I like most all
modern American concert music, but not having this piece in my collection was a frustration
for long time.
In addition to fulfilling this ambition of filling a gap, other works unfamiliar to me are included in the album.
Also, I was astonished to learn that the illustrious series of comissioned Lousville Orchestra
performamces originally issued on vinyl LP's are now again in the marketplace through the CD
medium. I now want to explore this series thoroughly today.
