Notes & Reviews:

As a young man, Hovhaness burned more than one thousand pieces of music in his fireplace after experiencing criticism and persecution from American composer, Aaron Copland, and Leonard Bernstein at Tanglewood. His spiritual teacher advised him to go back to his heritage, Armenia, to find himself. While there, he was introduced to the conductor Leopold Stokowski, who later performed his Symphony No. 1 and premiered his Symphony No. 2 'Mysterious Mountain', Op. 132.
