Hovhaness's writing for strings is luscious and practically divine, especially in The Holy City (of 1967). Hovhaness is of Armenian extraction, and much of his music is influenced by Eastern European sources (Kohar of 1946) and Asian as in the incredible Symphony for Metal Orchestra (of 1963). No one packs so much color or character into his (or her) music as Alan Hovhaness. Very highly recommended. 4. Psalm And Fugue, Opus 40a: Allegretto. 5. Kohar, Op. 66, No. 1: Moderato - Noble And Voice-Like. 6. Kohar, Opus 66, No. 1: Allegro - Powerful, Dance-Like, Rhythmic. Long ago, the Ithaca High School Concert Band issued a vinyl LP purporting to be a recording of Alan Hovhaness's Symphony for Metal Instruments. The music on this disc, although decent, is clearly not the same work.

The text should normally be considered more trustworthy, because a contents listing is prepared later by clerical staff, which also listed tracks incorrectly on the back cover of the CD.

Listening to a work of Armenian-American composer Alan Hovhaness, you recognize his characteristic style in a few measures. His music is often broadly expansive, painting sonorous landscapes that often use brass instruments to blend with and accentuate the strings. Also, while his peers experimented with serialism or highly intellectually challenging styles, Hovhaness maintained his world music-infused neo-Romantic style throughout his life. The result is an enormous body of work that are all a joy to listen to. Alas, much has not been recorded. On this Naxos CD, we get 3 different pieces. 22, Op. 236, "City of Light".
