Notes & Reviews:

Alan Hovhaness is recognized for his uniuqe power to combine traditional Romanticism and Eastern mysticism. In many ways he set the stage for such composers as Part, Gorecki and Rautavaara. The music touches on the themes of spirituality, the mystery and grandeur of nature, and the power of faith. It is quiet, beautiful, and inwardly intense. -H&B
