Porter Symphonies #1 & 2

|
Albany 574

Quincy Porter
(1897-1966)

Symphony #1
Poem and Dance
Symphony #2

Sinfonia Varsovia/Ian Hobson
Albany TROY574 60:23

The nearest similarity I can suggest for this music is Walter Piston, with a little William Schuman. The symphonies were written thirty years apart but have a unifying "feel". The Poem and Dance serves as a good contrast. The Polish orchestra sounds more than comfortable with this unfamiliar music.
