Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the introduction to his work EMBLEMS Aaron Copland's quote captured both the spirit of his music and this vision of the recording: “An emblem stands for something ---- it is a symbol. I called the work EMBLEMS because it seemed to me to suggest musical states of being: noble and aspirational feelings, playful or spirited feelings. The exact nature of these emblematic sounds must be determined for himself by the listener.” A native of Greeley, Colorado, Lowell E. Graham is the Director of Orchestral Activities and Professor of Conducting at the University of Texas at El Paso and is the recipient of the Abraham Chavez Professorship in Music. He enjoys a distinguished career conducting ensembles in many musical medias, including the Green Read more Bay Symphony Orchestra, the Virginia Symphony, the Spokane Symphony, and dozens more. He has held numerous conducting positions to include that of the Commander and Conductor of the United States Air Force’s premier musical organization in Washington DC. Read less
