Description: A welcome return for Taylor's 1917 suite of pictures from Lewis Carroll's famous book - a 31-minute, five-piece work in mostly vivid, primary colors, often sounding very much like ballet music. And while the 2004 Naxos recording of Griffes orchestral music is very good, the audiophile Delos recording is fantastic. Scott Goff (flute), Seattle Symphony; Gerard Schwarz. Original 1990 Delos release.
