Notes & Reviews:

"Any list of Great American Symphonists must include William Schuman, who made his first big splash in 1941 with his grand and glorious Third Symphony. The language owes something to Roy Harris, as does Schuman's use of baroque forms - the symphony's two movements are 'Passacaglia and Fugue' and 'Chorale and Toccata' - but the supremely confident brio and contrapuntal sophistication are uniquely Schuman's..." -Lehman, ARG
