Editorial Reviews


Listening to this collection of 14 rarely heard works of Alan Hovhaness (1911 2000) -- a total of more than two hours drawn from the years 1935-92 -- got me to thinking of the very different types of listeners who are drawn to the enormous output of this unusual composer. There are really three large groups, each of which sees the composer according to its own preferred orientation. Some view Hovhaness as a member of the conservative wing of 20th-century American composers, a defender of both beauty and tonality; others view him as an innovative musical thinker, who, along with such explorers of the exotic as Henry Cowell, John Cage, and Lou Harrison, laid the groundwork for the notion of 'world music'; still others regard him as a mystic, a visionary, a pioneer of the New Age aesthetic, who renounced intellectual approaches in favor of an appeal to the magical, the intuitive, and the spiritual, and who used his music to advocate pacifism and universal brotherhood. This trichotomy has made for some strange alliances within the pro-Hovhaness camp, and is reflected on this recording. --Walter Simmons, Fanfare, September/October 2010

In a century dominated by Americanists and serialists who sought to craft a response to European romanticism, Hovhaness joined Cage and Cowell in blazing a third path that embraced Eastern music as the logical solution in a world that, owing to faster travel and technology, was becoming increasingly smaller. He continued to write into the late 1990s, completing over 400 opus numbers, including almost 70 symphonies. His prolific career perhaps put him in danger of writing the same piece more than once, but even Bernstein came around to appreciate him, later commenting that Hovhaness's music was 'very, very good'. Chamber enthusiasts will discover a treasure trove of well-written and captivating music that transcends dogmatic stylistic philosophies and touches the soul. --Patrick Hanudel, American Record Guide, May/June 2010

Well if you are already keen on Hovhaness then this despite its format is generous and fills many a gap. The highlight? I'm very glad to have got to know the Viola Sonata. --Gary Higginson, MusicWeb, June 2010

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent Ogreogress Hovhaness collection February 14, 2010
Format:DVD Audio|Verified Purchase
A truly stupendous collection of lesser known pieces by Alan Hovhaness performed mainly by viola player Christina Fong and various collaborators.
You get over two hours of music recorded in the higher quality and resolution given by DVD.
Hovhaness is perhaps best known as a symphonist, and composer for larger ensembles, but these solos, duos and trios are truly musical poetry.
It is extraordinary that some of these pieces have slipped by until now. Some are completely unknown (to me anyhow), others are better known (Poseidon Sonata for solo piano, for example) but not, as far as I know, previously recorded.
The works are presented in chronological order and date from the 1930s to the 1990s, so cover many of the various stages of Hovhaness' composing styles. There are some who think Hovhaness lost his magic touch in later years, but a listen to the final piece here, 1992's sonata for solo viola, surely puts paid to that idea. If you are already a fan of Hovhaness you should need no persuading. If you enjoy excellent contemporary chamber music, recorded with great immediacy, do NOT miss this limited edition disc.
I bought this disc direct from Ogreogress and it crossed the Atlantic to me very speedily.
One reservation I have is that little use is made of the additional features offered by the DVD format - the track titles do not appear on screen for example, and there are no pictures of the performers or other extras on the disc at all. It played without difficulty on my mass market cheap DVD player, no on my computer DVD rom player, so you should have no difficulty getting this disc to play.

Format:DVD Audio
I have never heard any of Alan Hovhaness's music before and knew very little about him, so I decided it was time. I had read that John Cage was an admirer of Mr. Hovhaness's work so much so that he supervised the publication of his two piano work "Mihr (Op. 60)" for Henery Cowell's New Music series, and that Martha Graham commissioned music for her ballet "Ardent Song". With high expectations I put in OgreOgress productions Audio/DVD and was once again taken aback by the sound quality, very clear, clean and real sounding. The recordings comprise of 55 miniatures (short pieces) much of them not well known and ranging from the years 1935-1992, going from his early music (baroque inspired) to his later music (more of his own 'global' voice). The Audio/DVD also comes with a very informative booklet that offers great historical facts and explanations of the pieces.

In the begging I was surprised by how Baroque some of the first pieces were sounding to me, they kind of caught me off guard, I hadn't read the booklet yet and new not much about him. My tastes tend to lean a little more to the left (ok a lot more to the left) and Baroque music sometimes makes me a little edgy. But as time wore on I began to hear something in the compositions that really grabbed me, "Poseidon Sonata for Piano Op.191" (1957) was very powerful and beautiful and opened up my ears, I started to relax. I began to notice a wider range of textures than I had before. I started to find myself feeling very much at peace, kind of drifting off, so much so that I hadn't noticed that the DVD had started over at the beginning and that "Poseidon Sonata" was playing again, a little over two hours had passed. I was hearing what seemed to be a very different music from before, something totally new and beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A collection of Hovhaness treasures June 9, 2014
Format:DVD Audio
For the Hovhaness enthusiast – or even if you are new to his music – this DVD Audio recording will be a wonderful surprise, presenting some of his lesser known chamber works composed over almost 60 years of his life. Being a DVD Audio disk there is over 2 hours of music too. The performances are first-rate and the recordings are clear and sonically present; turn the volume up a little and the performers are in the room with you. Likewise, the liner notes are detailed and insightful; obviously well-researched and helpful to fully understand the background of each piece. I enjoy how the album is laid-out in chronological order too so that one can hear the different influences and styles involved in Hovhaness’ compositions over the course of his life. It is a pleasure to add this disk to my collection.
