"...a fine tribute to an inexplicably neglected figure of the century's American music scene.". Chicago TribunePeter Mennin"an extended song ... making use of sustained voice-weaving." Symphony No. 7
develops in a single movement of remarkable contrasts and intensity. An exception to Mennin's "pure"
compositional approach, the concertato Moby Dick depicts "the emotional impact of the novel as a whole."
