This volume of varied works by Italian–American composer Anthony Louis Scarmolin (1890–1969) begins with a dance from his opera The Caliph (1948), set in the time of Haroun-al-Rashid, the great eighth-century Caliph of Baghdad. Among the other pieces—many of them in a lush, film-score style—are the impressionistic tone poem The Sunlit Pool (1951), Arioso for String Orchestra (1953), Concert Piece for Trumpet and Strings (1962), Invocation (1947), the 1942 Variations on a Folk Song ("La Lionesse," from the composer's native Piedmont region), and Prelude (1964).
