Description
One of Broadway's most brilliant orchestrators, Robert Russell Bennett worked on Porgy and Bess and other projects with George Gershwin as well as collaborating with Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and Richard Rogers. Fans of this side of his work may well be surprised by Bennett's weighty Abraham Lincoln: A Likeness in Symphony Form, which calls to mind Aaron Copland or the early Charles Ives. Also from 1929, the seven-movement Sights and Sounds (An Orchestral Entertainment) evokes the bustle and excitement of city life in such vignettes as "Electric Signs," "Night Club," and "Skyscraper."

"The Moscow Orchestra perform here with a touch of cheek and vivacity … a treat!"—Repertoire

"A long overdue tribute to an American composer whose many and wonderfully varied accomplishments cry out for further exploration and rediscovery."—American Music
