A fresh, finely balanced and excitingly diverse concert program in surround sound.

What more could an advocate for American music want? This recording combines neglected works by well-known masters (Roy Harris' Symphony No. 11 and Gould's Cowboy Rhapsody) with masterful works by composers whose names may be unfamiliar (Douglas Moore's and Cecil Effinger's Symphonies). World premiere recordings that taken together make up as fresh, finely balanced and excitingly diverse a concert program as one could wish.

Review:
"This is a recording that belongs on the shelves of anyone with a serious appreciation of our country's great musical heritage." (Fanfare)

"This is a terrific collection. ...Why [Cowboy Rhapsody] isn't a pops concert standard is anyone's guess...This sympathetic and well-played performance makes an excellent case for [Roy Harris' Eleventh Symphony]." (ClassicsToday.com)
