Notes & Reviews:

Virgil Thomson and Howard Hanson were exact contemporaries, both being born in 1896, and both hailing from the midwest: Thomson from Kansas and Hanson from Nebraska. Although Thomson composed a good deal of music in various genres, he was most well-known in his time as a composer for the stage and the movies. Although Hanson composed a fine catalog of works, it was as an academic and conductor that he made his name. Hanson served as director the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York from 1924 to 1964, during which time he built up a large catalog of recordings for the Mercury Company, conducting works by mainly American composers, including many of his own music.
