From the creative minds of two men, an orchestral masterpiece emerges. The Concord Sonata for Piano was vintage Ives…colorful, inventive, advanced, and ultimately highly regarded. Henry Brant took the sonata, with its themes of transcendentalism, and created the fully orchestrated Symphony. Aaron Copland's Organ Symphony announced the arrival of a new master. Here the San Francisco Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas are joined by organist Paul Jacobs.
I bought this for the Copland Organ Symphony, to replace a very old vinyl recording by E .Power Biggs.
Thoroughly enjoyed it.
I was hoping for some great organ music, and this is the wrong CD for that! I probably need to try another Paul Jacobs offering.Published on January 10, 2013 by James V. Walzel
