Notes & Reviews:

This recording offers a tantalizing sampling of Morton Gould's work from the vibrant decade of the mid 1930s and '40s, featuring two of his trademark Symphonettes, the gutsy Concerto for Orchestra and his earliest big orchestral work- Chorale and Fugue in Jazz- presented in full for the first time since its 20-year-old composer wrote it with Interplay, the diminutive concerto holding center stage.

"Morton Gould was an excellent, even courageous composer, continuing on his chosen path of writing intelligent, approachable music that appealed to serious and casual listeners alike without ever pandering. This marvelously played and recorded disc contains a happy mix of familiar and unfamiliar, or Gould's lighter fare along with some more serious work as well. David Alan Miller and the Albany Symphony Orchestra do the music proud. This disc makes a perfect introduction to Gould's special sound world, and of course comprises a mandatory acquisition for the already converted. Either way, don't miss it." - Classics Today (10/10)

"Once again David Alan Miller and his crack ensemble the Albany Symphony pay tribute to one of our country's most remarkably versatile originals, Morton Gould (1913 - 1996). Several years ago the same forces gave us premiere recordings of Gould's Second and Third Symphonies and an early Piano Concerto, and now we finally have an opportunity to enjoy the third of his American Symphonettes; his first major orchestral effort, Chorale and Fugue in Jazz; and, most important of all, one of his most aggressively brilliant and bountiful scores, the Concerto for Orchestra...this disc is so much fun and was so much needed." - Paul A. Snook, Fanfare
