Most often a light-hearted cross between Carl Stalling and Aaron Copland, though pieces like the Paul Bunyan Overture reveal that there was more depth to Gillis than his reputation presents. Fave works: Symphony 5 1/2; Shindig; Symphony #6 "Mid-century USA"...

Quote from: Mozart on July 22, 2007, 08:37:57 PMVivaldi is light to me, every concerto pretty much has the same exact outline. Not if you dance to them like the Viennese. It becomes quite the workout getting through a 10 minute one

Quote from: Norseman on July 24, 2007, 03:45:23 AMWilliam Boyce's (1711-1779) so-called 8 symphonies. Rather short 3 movement works from around mid-century. Lots of charm and light feel-good music. I have Trevor Pinnock's recording on Archiv, but Naxos also has one.
