The blog Film Music: The Neglected Art has published another grand review of a “Delos Recording of the Month.” This month’s album is one of our compilations — “Western Classics,” featuring Gerard Schwarz, Seattle Symphony, and the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet performing the music of Copland, Grofé, Hanson, and Hovhaness.
From Film Music: The Neglected Art:
“Delos, as part of a series which also includes Mystery classics (DE 1601) and Romance classics (DE 1602), has put together 60+ minutes of western material from Copland, Grofe, Hanson, and Hovhaness. Each piece carefully selected is a representation of the western way of life…
“… This is a nice introduction to some wonderful material or just a one hour escape into the world of classic western material. As is usually the case with Delos the material is well recorded with good balance, bass, and treble. I approve of the fact that the highs are not too bright and there is a nice crispness in the percussion.”
