Editorial Reviews

Although the first, fourth and fifth movements were performed in cut form in March 1958, Rochberg' Symphony No. 1, the first large-scale work of his career, is here heard complete for the first time. Unlike the anguished Second , written in the mid-fiftie

The American composer George Rochberg (1918- 2005) is best-known for his turn from serial (atonal) composition to a "hard" romantic, tonal style following the success of his 1955-1956 Second Symphony, a lengthy passionate work composed atonally. Over the past several years, Christopher Lyndon-Gee and the Saarbrucken Radio Symphony Orchestra have offered music lovers an excellent opportunity to get to know Rochberg's orchestral music on the "American Classics" series of the budget-priced Naxos label. In addition to the atonal Second Symphony, Lyndon Gee has offered outstanding readings of Rochberg's latter music, including the violin concerto and the Fifth Symphony. He has also written perceptive liner notes to accompany the music. I have enjoyed getting to know Rochberg's music throught these recordings.

The latest recording from Lyndon-Gee in the series is this recently-released CD of Rochberg's early Symphony No. 1. Rochberg first composed this symphony as a young man of 31 in 1948-1949. It is a large, outsize five-movement work of over one hour in length. It was first conducted by Rochberg and a student orchestra of the Curtis Institute of Philadelphia in 1949. Eight years later, Eugene Ormandy conducted a much-abridged version which led to a falling out between Ordmandy and the composer. The work has not been performed a great deal since Ormandy's attempt, and this is its first recording. Significantly, Rochberg returned to the symphony twice, making major edits in 1977 and again in 2003 in preparation for this recording. Thus this recording presents an early work, but one substantially revised by a mature composer who had found his musical voice.
