I remember being very impressed with this once upon a time.....so I am playing it now. Thank you for reminding me. Glorious tunes. All those fans of Atterberg really ought to immerse themselves in Hanson as well.
That is a very good disc - The Merry Mount Suite is well done as well, equal to, but different from Hanson's own with Eastman-Rochester on Mercury.
Merry Mount is excellent - both full opera, and Suite...the Love-Duet wipes me out every time.
Sym #3 is my favorite, but #1 Nordic is very fine also - powerful stuff...Hanson knew how to draw a big sonority from the orchestra.
