Catalogue Number: 10N056
Description: In these reissues, Naxos is not coupling the recordings the way they were released on Delos. Here is the craggy, Sibelian First from 1922, a Scandinavian-American's tribute to his guiding spirit and a remarkable work for any 26-year-old composer (especially for one from Wahoo, Nebraska). The Lament, elegiac, dark, brooding and tense, comes from three years later. Texts included. Seattle Symphony and Chorale; Gerard Schwarz. Original 1990 Delos releases
