Harris: Symphony No. 3 / Symphony No. 4: Folk Song Symphony (American Classics) Lowest new price: $8.44
Lowest used price: $2.95

Strongly influenced by his native Oklahoma, Roy Harris studied in Paris with Nadia Boulanger, returning to America to establish himself as one of the leading composers of his generation. The backbone of his output is the series of thirteen symphonies, whi

Harris's Folk Song Symphony, his fourth, is an odd work, hardly a symphony in our usual use of the word. It was first performed in 1940 and is more of a cantata--it's a set of choral and orchestral arrangements of familiar songs, including "The Streets of Laredo," "When Johnny Comes Marching Home," "He's Gone Away," and a Negro spiritual or two. There's nothing particularly deep about it, but it's good entertainment. And Marin Alsop leads the Colorado forces with energy and what seems like true excitement. The briefer Third Symphony is a meatier work: it builds with suspense for its first half (it lasts about 18 minutes), has a fine fugue which features some exciting brass playing, and is concise and dramatic. Alsop gets intense playing from the orchestra. A very interesting piece, well played. --Robert Levine

Elliott Carter: Choral Music

Elliott Carter: Choral Music Lowest new price: $49.50
Lowest used price: $10.80

Even Elliott Carter himself had forgotten about these nine choral pieces, written between 1936 and 1947. When conductor John Oliver recently proposed to "resurrect" them, Carter insisted he must first hear them to dispel lingering doubts about their worthiness. "Not as bad as I remembered," he proclaimed regarding "Let's Be Gay," a 1937 work for women's chorus and two pianos. "Harvest Home," for unaccompanied mixed chorus, became "more bearable" after "a little doctoring." Amazingly ambitious and refreshingly original, these pieces, whose texts range from Robert Herrick to Ovid to Emily Dickinson and whose music offers hints of Ives and Stravinsky, will present any choir with formidable challenges. But after listening to settings of Herrick's "To Music" and Dickinson's "Heart Not So Heavy As Mine," two of the program's shorter, tonal pieces, it's easy to understand why Carter was pleased with John Oliver's performances--and why his faith in his choral music's value was at least partially restored. --David Vernier
