Notes and Editorial Reviews

Few composers have managed the development from European musical roots into full-fledged American masters as skillfully as Howard Hanson (1896 –1981). Director of the Eastman School of Music for four decades, he left a lasting imprint on American concert music. Conductor David Montgomery was the last pupil of the legendary René Leibowitz. He made his debut in 1969 at the Schönberg Festival in Lyon. That same year, he began his work as Associate Conductor with the Santa Fe Opera. Numerous appearances as conductor and pianist in Europe and the United States followed.
