Notes & Reviews:

"Goossens' First Symphony was designed for and is dedicated to his colleagues at the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Its slow second movement features a somber but lovely bass clarinet solo. The 'Finale' is described by the composer as having no program but dealing with the "old abstractions" - the verities of life, love and death. This was the final recording session with the late conductor Richard Hickox, who recorded 282 discs for Chandos, and it is the premiere recording of the 'Phantasy Concerto'. The 5.0-channel hi-res surround sonics are without fault. Both these works should be urged into more prominence by this excellent SACD release." -Audiophile Audition (audaud.com)
