Description
American composer George Templeton Strong (1856–1948) went abroad to study music, settled in Switzerland, and lived there for the rest of his life. These finely crafted Romantic pieces show the influence of Franz Liszt and Richard Wagner, and they were championed by the likes of Ernest Ansermet and Arturo Toscanini. This is the first complete recording of the three suites From a Notebook of Sketches (1941).

"The Moscow Symphony … offers polished and enthusiastic playing, especially from the brass…. Suite No. 1 evokes the magical worlds of Mendelssohn and Berlioz, while Suite No. 2 'Athens' simulates archaic dance through its use of folk coloring in the manner of Dvorák and Grieg. No. 3 draws on fairy tale subjects … for its first two movements. The finale ('Oriental Procession') … suggests the 19th-century 'oriental' styling of Saint-Saëns' Samson et Dalila. Adriano proves a sensitive interpreter of these delicate and colorful pieces, drawing refined playing from his orchestra. The wide-ranging recording captures the full dynamic impact of Ondine and the subtle shadings of the Suites."—Classics Today
