Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...The word "evocative" leaps to mind when I listen to all of this music, and thus McKay's orchestral masterpiece, the 1951 Evocation Symphony for Seattle, serves as a splendid synthesis of all the various elements... John McLaughlin Williams delivers absolutely masterful and deeply engrossing readings... Here is a real winner no one interested in our country's music can afford to pass up. It deserves our unqualified support and endorsement." -Snook, Fanfare
