Howard Hanson was an unabashed Romantic and this collection of some of his shorter works shows him in that light, brightly. The longest work here, at 16 minutes, is the concerto for organ, harp, and strings: it begins with great mystery, quietly, with the harp popping out of the string texture frequently; there follow solos for the organ which lead back to the earlier vagueness-then all the forces are called into play, and the piece ends with a solo for the organ. The "Nymphs and Satyr Ballet Suite" has lovely solos for a bassoon and clarinet; "Fantasy Variations" for piano and strings is a solemn piece, very cinematic in structure. "Serenade for Flute, Harp, and Strings" is influenced by French impressionism and is very lovely; "Summer Seascape" for viola and strings is both stark and attractive; "Pastorale for Oboe" is also impressionist and has a nice, solitary feel to it. The performances under Daniel Spalding are superb with each soloist worthy of his or her assignment. A special treat for those who love American music.
