Об альбоме (сборнике)

Superb recordings of American classics.,
By Janos Gardonyi Published on Amazon.com
Morton Gould conducts with great verve & sensitivity. “Rodeo” is terrific & it also includes the seldom heard “Honky-Tonk Interlude” which is a delight in itself. The Grand Canyon Suite is a highlight with its marvellous orchestration & melodic richness. Although the score is influenced by a number of composers such as Dukas, Ravel, Respighi & even Richard Strauss, it nevertheless feels entirely original. “On the trail” is beautifully rhythmical, one can really feel the trotting of the donkeys, & the sound effects are pure joy. Note the ee-ah-ing of the donkeys, so superbly part of the music. (somewhat reminescent of Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream overture.) The Cloudburst is a sonic triumph. This recording comes from 1957, but digitally remastered. Sound is demonstration quality. Still probably the best available, highly recommended.
Gould conducts Copland & Grofe,
By Robert E. Nylund – Published on Amazon.com
It may surprise some to discover that American composer/conductor Morton Gould conducted such fine performances of other American composers’ music. These RCA Victor “Living Stereo” recordings are vivid, excellent proof that Gould was a really fine conductor & not just of his own music. The performances of the suites from Copland’s ballets “Billy the Kid” & “Rodeo” are among the best ever recorded. They benefit not only from Gould’s wonderful sensitivity & appreciation but from excellent playing by the “pickup” orchestra & the still remarkable “Living Stereo” recording process, in which RCA used only 3 microphones & advanced mastering techniques.
Ferde Grofe’s “Grand Canyon Suite” was a “labor of love” as the skilled composer/arranger spent considerable time carefully depicting his impressions of one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. Grofe had been a very successful arranger for Paul Whiteman & is still remembered for the very 1st orchestration of George Gershwin’s “An American in Paris,” premiered by Gershwin at the piano with Whiteman conducting in New York’s Aeolian Hall in February 1924.
Grofe composed a number of original orchestral works in later years & the “Grand Canyon Suite” is probably his best. It contains memorable melodies & is skillfully orchestrated throughout. It so impressed Arturo Toscanini that he recorded it in 1945 for RCA Victor, under the supervision of the composer. Grofe himself conducted a recording of the suite for Everest Records in 1960. Gould’s recording is excellent. The final movement, depicting a spectacular thunderstorm, is absolutely awesome. I think this recording may surpass an earlier favorite, also recorded for RCA Victor, by Arthur Fiedler & the Boston “Pops” Orchestra.
This is all very fun & very exciting American music.
Доп. информация: Специально для любителей многоканального звука. Диск формата 5,0, но полезный сигнал только на трех фронтальных. Впрочем, как и на большей части серии "Living Stereo"
Приятного прослушивания
