The first recording of composer Charles Bestor's orchestral works.

Composer Charles Bestor received his musical training under Paul Hindemith, Vincent Persichetti, Peter Mennin and Vladiir Ussachevsky. His long career has included numerous awards and commissions and recordings of his music appear on Albany Records, Capstone, Centaur, New Ariel, Serenus, Orion and MSR Classics. He has pursued a parallel career as a teacher and administrator and served on the faculty and administration of the Juilliard School, Wilamette University and the Universities of Massachusetts, Utah and Alabama. He is presently Professor of Composition Emeritus and Director of the Electronic and Computer Music Studios of the University of Massachusetts/Amherst. This recording is the first devoted to his orchestral works. Two works on the recording (Requiem and The Long Goodbye) are the composer's attempt to generalize a private personal loss.
