Notes & Reviews:

'Whatever meaning my life has is to be found in the music itself', declared William Schuman of his extraordinary career as a composer and artistic catalyst in the fertile and evolving environment of 20th-century America. His single-movement Symphony No. 6 stands as one of his most intense and integrated, its somberness enlivened with intricate rhythms and startling counterpoint. 'Prayer in a Time of War' and 'New England Triptych' highlight Schuman's abiding sense of patriotism, the former written soon after America's entry into World War II, the latter based on hymns from the time of the American Revolution.
