Notes & Reviews:

Of Armenian and Scottish origins, the American composer Alan Hovhaness was a trend-setting pioneer who absorbed an eclectic variety of archaic and modern influences from East and West. At the heart of his huge output lies a vision of music for all people which is beautiful and healing, fueled by a deep and reverent love of nature.
