Music in the great American choral tradition by one of the senior statesmen of American music.

Jacob Avshalomov is one of the great veterans of American music. He studied with his father Aaron, as well as Ernst Toch, Bernard Rogers and Aaron Copland. His orchestral, instrumental and choral works are full of classic American melodies, rhythms and harmonies; in short, the kind of music "they don't write anymore." Serious listeners to American music have him to thank for those pioneering recordings from the late 1950's and early 1960's with his beloved Portland (Oregon) Youth Symphony, which introduced many of us to composers such as Benjamin Lees and William Bergsma. This disc features his wonderful choral music, much of which is based on texts by his wife Doris. These works all fall into the great American choral tradition of Randall Thompson and Copland. More of Avshalomov's music can be heard on TROY115, 160, 249, 296 and 502.
