American Classics - Bennett: Abraham Lincoln / Moscow SO

Album Summary

>Bennett, Robert Russell : Abraham Lincoln
>Bennett, Robert Russell : Sights and Sounds (an orchestral entertainment)
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Robert Russell Bennett lived a dual life, orchestrating the best known musicals of such composers as Gershwin, Porter, Berlin and Kern, while building a large catalog of vivid and highly descriptive symphonic works. Among his best known is the 1929 tribute to Abraham Lincoln, a score that burns with a pasionate American pride. In 'Sights and Sounds,' Bennet creates an abstract musical painting of America at the end o the 1920s.
