Powell: Symphony in A, etc / Falletta, Virginia Symphony

Album Summary

>Powell, John : Symphony in A major ("Virginia")
>Traditional, American : Shenandoah, folk song
Conductor Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The Symphony in A major is the result of Powell's decades of searching out old melodies still roaming the Virginia countryside - songs that were old when the first Queen Elizabeth was young. Unfortunately, Powell's extensive collection remains unpublished so that it is almost impossible to identify the sources for the individual melodies within the 'Symphony'. The general style of the work is grandiose, employing the late Germanic orchestration in which Powell was trained.
