Sunday Gramophone - Eastman Rochester Orchestra Plays Music Of Student Composers - 1953

Sunday Gramophone with the Eastman-Rochester Music School orchestra playing the music of Student composers.


The Eastman School of music Orchestra under the direction of Howard Hanson played music of Student Composers on this particular evening in 1953.

Works featured on this set of transcription discs from March 6, 1953 are:

1. Walter Hartley: Ballet Music For Orchestra
2. William Pursell: Christ Looking Over Jerusalem
3. Ron Nelson: Savannah River Holiday

It's not likely any of these are familiar, or even ring bells. But these were representative of the Best and Brightest at the time.

Enjoy what's currently left of Sunday.
