Editorial Reviews

Hanson' last two symphonies offer a fitting conclusion to his compositional career. Commissioned for the 185th anniversary season of the New York Philharmonic and dedicated to Leonard Bernstein, the romantic Sixth is cast in six continuous movements perva

By Robin Friedman HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 24, 2012
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The music of the American composer Howard Hanson (1896 -- 1981) is unabashedly romantic with large scale orchestration, emotion, and a quest for vision. His music also is composed in a conservative, accessible musical language. His seven symphonies are readily available in a series of recordings by the Seattle Symphony conducted by, Gerard Schwarz, who recently retired as music director after 26 years. Schwarz has long been a champion of American music. The Delos label issued Schwarz' cycle of the symphonies in the 1990's, and they have now been reissued on the "American Classics" series of Naxos. I have found this series invaluable as a way to broaden and deepen my understanding of American music.

This CD includes Hanson's final two symphonies together with a work for orchestra and women's chorus, "Lumen in Christo". The performances are enthusiastic and well-recorded and the singing by the Seattle Chorale is lovely and sometimes incandescent. Although not overwhelming, the music will reward hearing. Romanticism and feeling are not passe.

Composed in 1968, Hanson's symphony no. 6 is the only purely orchestral work on this CD. It is in six short movement each of which is develops a three-note phrase stated at the outset. This is a tightly written piece with a variety of emotional moods and orchestral colorations, including the extensive use of percussion and brass. The six movements alternate slow and fast sections, with the heart of the symphony an extended third movement adagion. This 20-minute symphony was commissioned by the New York Philharmonic and dedicated to Leonard Bernstein. The recording dates from 1989.

In 1974, Hanson composed a two-movement work, Lumen in Christo, for orchestra and women's chorus commissioned by Nazareth College.
