3.0 out of 5 stars Neo-Romantics in Louisville December 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD
As important as the Louisville First Edition Recordings LPs were for 20th-Century music, releasing, between the early 1950s and the late 1980s loads of music from composers of all stylistic allegiances and nationalities, one of their drawbacks was the lack of coherence of their programs, the apparent motley pairing of composers and compositions with no perceptible stylistic kinship. When Albany picked up the Louisville catalog for CD reissues in the late 1980s (and that went no further then ten releases, followed by ten more made by Louisville's own label), to a certain extent they pursued the habit. Some of their releases were indeed devoted to single composers, such as (Roy Harris: Symphony 1933; Concerto for Violin and Orchestra; Symphony No. 5, Walter Piston: Symphony No. 5; Symphony No. 7; Symphony No. 8 and The Louisville Orchestra First Edition Series: Morton Gould (2-CD set)). But this one, TROY 021, paired composers that, on the face of it, might have seemed as divergent in their compositional language as the once-Viennese avant-garde Ernst Toch and the American neo-Romantic Samuel Barber.

Actually, there is a certain stylistic coherence between all these works - other than the fact that three of them have biblical subjects (and Barber's "Prayers of Kierkegaard" isn't so far, as it sets some of the philosopher's most Christian utterances) - in that they are all couched in a neo-Romantic language with very occasional flights into more angular dissonance.
