Notes & Reviews:

Michael Horvit is considered one of the last links between the great American Symphonic School and today's music. Not surprisingly, one can hear echoes of this illustrious past in such works as the 'Cullen Overture' and 'Concerto for Brass Quintet and Orchestra' (on Troy265, works for orchestra), resplendent pieces which conjure up great open vistas and exuberant optimism. This exceptional disc of chamber music further reveals his traditionalist style, particularly in the 'String Quartet No. 2,' whose thematic material is mostly based on one of his favorite folksongs, 'Shenandoah.'
