High-stepping, all-American sounds!

As you might have guessed from other Gould releases in our catalog, we at Albany Records are great fans of the music of this wonderful American composer. This recording is a reissue of recordings that originally appeared on EMI in 1990 and was only available for a short time. It is a perfect introduction to his music and shows just why he is such a fine composer. From the American Salute to the American Symphonette No. 2 with its delightful Pavane, there is music here for anyone who enjoys classical music. Kenneth Klein conducts this music beautifully. He understands the Gould idiom perfectly and conveys it with great appeal. This disc has been remastered and sounds terrific and should find a wide audience.

"The late Morton Gould was one of the most massively talented of all American composer-pianists-conductors. Everything he touched seemed to turn to gold; classical, crossover, jazz, pops, films to television. Yet relatively little of his vast output is available on CD, so this survey of four of Gold's most frequently programmed Orchestral works - played and recorded to the Tens by the London Philharmonic under Kenneth Klein - constitutes an event for collectors Although Klein has recorded standards, no one excels him in American repertory. And the fact that he can inspirit the London Phil to such idiomatic bravura speaks volumes in itself. Sonics are first class." (InTune)
