Description: Another exciting batch of relatively rare repertoire, led by the only available recording of Hovhaness' Third of 1956, a three-movement work of 26 minutes, in which his mature period of exotic Eastern melodic and thematic experimentation is in full bloom. Harris often revised his symphonies and the Seventh was no exception. This won the Naumberg Prize in 1953 yet Harris extensively revised it for a new premiere performance late in 1955. But this one is from January of the same year and is the only surviving recording of its original version.
