Notes & Reviews:

It is wonderful to have these rarely heard symphonic poems of Edward MacDowell performed to the best possible advantage by the wonderful Royal Philharmonic. MacDowell is most commonly known as a composer of evocative piano miniatures, however, these works reveal not only the composer's skill as an orchestrator, but also his ability to create drama in sound.
