Description: Red meat for historical collectors: the first-ever American performance of a Hovhaness orchestral work, the second American performance of Milhaud's Chicago SO commission and the symphony of the 16-year-old Serebrier, a stunning accomplishment in a single-movement in a sort of passacaglia form, premiered in Houston at almost literally the last minute (on the day the Soviets launched Sputnik!). Leopold Stokowski (conductor).
