Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Jerome Moross (1913-1983) was in the vanguard of composers who realized that there was a music of America, and for America written by Americans. This recording, originally released by Koch, offers three major scores by this eminent American composer. Moross grew up with and listened to jazz bands, played in theatre pits and found that his own composing style was totally, spontaneously conditioned by it. Having found his métier relatively early in life, he stuck to it through thick and thin to the end. And perhaps because he was so young when he found his voice, his music sounds young - always, early and late. His music is exciting and always sounds fresh, but uniquely his own.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
The Last Judgement (1953) is a ballet for chamber orchestra on the story of Eve. Moross's music is pop-based. It's charmingly quaint and would likely be a hit today in the right environs. The program closes with a set of Variations on a Waltz. The variations combine to form a ballet on the topic of Red Riding Hood and her seduction by the Big Bad Wolf, culminating with the dramatic intervention of good old Granny. The piece is again pops concert material, and with appropriate scenic props would make a delightful diversion. Kids would love it. The music is brilliantly written and just plain fun, like everything else on this program. Falletta and the LSO are predictably professional and technically flawless.
