Notes & Reviews:

This fascinating disc features the lost generation of American composers, who took their inspiration from the German and French music of their continental teachers. Annotator Malcolm MacDonald writes that "their reputations were made in the early years of the 20th century - and subsequently were more or less discounted with the rise of a more aggressively 'American' school. Now that the brawling 20th century is over, it begins to be possible to see that these earlier American masters contributed a rich body of music which is possible to enjoy for its own sake, its skill and fine culture."
