Quote from: cilgwyn on January 28, 2012, 04:43:36 PMA very interesting post,Vandemolen! I remember this release,but resisted at the time! Since then,I have discovered George Antheil.A fascinating & very underrated composer.

There is also a Naxos cd of 'Frankie & Johnny' & a deleted cd,of his chamber music (coupled with Herrmann),which is way out of my pocket. Although,I could sell all my posessions & go and live in a cardboard box. But then I wouldn't be able to listen to it,anyway! Funnily enough,even though I like all the Antheil symphonies & pretty much everything I've heard,so far;my personal favourites are Symphonies 1 & 6. Wierd ,wonderful,often lush & impressionistic & a bit spooky! Great for late night listening. Just make sure there's nothing hiding in the wardrobe before turning off the light! Cyril Scott's Fourth Symphony is another spooky one!!!!

I think I'm inclined towards the Koch recording. Not that I'm biased against Naxos,but some of their releases of 'American Classics' have been rather disappointing. The New Zealand SO seem quite a good orchestra & their recordings have had some enthusiastic reviews.

Quote from: Cato on February 02, 2012, 06:41:51 PMIf you can find this, you are in for a real treat:Sonata for Piano Duet and String Quartet by Moross, plus Herrmann's Echoes and Souvenir de Voyage.Not morose music at all: go to Herrmann for that mood...and its exorcism!Besides The Big Country, check out Moross' music for another Charlton Heston epic: The War Lord.
