Notes & Reviews:

In cooperation with the Fleischer Collection, conductor Reuben Blundell (New York's Hunter College faculty) presents this recording of premieres of several works for string orchestra by Late-Romantic American Composers. These composers from the Second New England School (such as Horatio Parker and Arthur Foote), and also immigrant composers from Europe (such as Carl Busch and Ludwig Bonvin) drew from European traditions, Americana, and native American musical traditions alike, shaping American musical life well into the 20th century and beyond.
