Notes & Reviews:

Here, in the first complete cycle of Anderson's orchestral music, the Anderson family has made available several pieces that the composer did not release, with some first recordings scattered among the familiar and not-so familiar titles. Volume Four concentrates on Anderson's many arrangements, as well as revisions or alternate versions of his own works, including 'Alma Mater', a reworking of his 1939 suite 'Harvard Sketches'.
