 Would hace got 5 stars if this compilation had tw April 8, 2014 By Terry S. (Newton, MA) See All My Reviews "Hovhaness has been described as a composer that wrote the same piece over and over. Well, I'm not sure how anyone came to that assessment. True, like any composer, he has certain stylistic identifying characteristics and he often identifies with certain programmatic themes. However, I've seldom seen a composer who has written such widely varying works. The problem, with this particular compilation is, however, that in two attempts to get the CDs as described, I was only able to obtain CD1, first, only that disc was sent and in the second attempt, two copies of CD1 were sent with no CD2.Even Arkiv Music didn't get it right. So I recommend that you either buy the works in a different compilation or see if Arkiv can check the CD inside before sending it out. In the end, I got all the works on the two CDs and enjoyed them all very much. Good Luck!" Report Abuse
