More orchestral music from Jerome Moross in honor of the 100th anniversary of his birth.

2013 celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Jerome Moross, an American original. Best known for his outstanding motion picture scores, he considered himself primarily a composer of concert music and this recording, originally released by Koch, demonstrates his considerable contribution to American music. Writing for the theatre remained Moross’ first love as a composer. Frankie and Johnny, written in 1938, was one of a number of works he wrote for this medium. The recording spans his compositional output from his earliest work, Biguine, written in 1934, to his last completed work, Concerto for Flute and String Orchestra, written in 1978.

Review:
“[Frankie and Johnny is] a terrific and vastly underrated piece, and deserves more regular performances somewhere. …I again salute Ms. Falletta for unearthing this material.” (American Record Guide)
