Notes and Editorial Reviews

Forming part of the esteemed American conductor's on-going series of the composer’s complete orchestral works with the Detroit Symphony, let me say at the outset, that having heard most of the previous releases of the Third Symphony, this stands out as the finest version on disc. His interpretation oozes Americana, the pulse and flow of the music so perfectly judged, and never can that feeling of thanksgiving and euphoria that gripped the States at the end of the Second World War have been so perfectly encapsulated. The folksy Three Latin American Sketches make a pleasing lightweight coupling.
