Quote from: vandermolen on July 06, 2009, 06:30:55 AMTogether with Copland, Diamond is my favourite American composer - especially symphonies 2,3 and 4, all of which are marvellous works. I feel that he should be much better known. These works are well crafted, eloquent and often moving (as in slow movement of Symphony No 3).
Quote from: Elnimio on May 02, 2012, 07:36:16 AMThe dissonant language found in his symphonies 7 and 8 is quite shocking, especially compared to his earlier stuff, but damn, it makes for some thrilling, darker music. A master of lean contrapuntal writing, this guy was. Truly talented and multifaceted composer.
Quote from: calyptorhynchus on May 07, 2012, 07:14:55 PMI particularly liked the tone poem 'The Enormous Room', it's absolutely lovely and has an inevitable structure, although I don't what it has to do with e e cummings memoir.

Quote from: Mirror Image on December 08, 2012, 06:39:34 PMObviously this has nothing to do with it. Copland was homosexual, and Jewish, and recognized as one of the greatest American composers. I don't know why Diamond isn't performed more. I'd love a conductor like Alan Gilbert or Andrew Litton to release a complete symphony cycle. Wouldn't that be something? It's a shame Schwarz didn't do a complete cycle. I never understood why he didn't? I mean he had support from Delos.
