Naxos American Classics, 2015

Alan Hovhaness's remarkable legacy of 67 symphonies and hundreds of other works stands as a testimony to one of the most individual musical voices of the 20th century. Written when Hovhaness was 25, the Prelude and Quadruple Fugue represents not only his mastery of counterpoint but in its sweeping climactic form is also one of his most exciting works. The Soprano Saxophone Concerto is like a melodic tone poem or aria, and considered the most ...

American Mystic - Music of Alan Hovhaness - Centennial Collection
Hovhaness, Gerarrd Schwarz, ...

Delos, 2011

Delos celebrates this wonderfully eclectic 'American Mystic's' glowing niche in the pantheon of American musical history from a new angle: Hovhaness as a composer of what we now call 'world music' ... though on a more exalted plane than most of that genre's content. We call Hovhaness a 'mystic' largely due to his insatiable curiosity about pan-global musical traditions: primarily exotic-sounding middle- and far-Eastern modes, scales and rhythms ...


Hovhaness: Holy City Op. 218; Symphony No. 17
Hovhaness, Clark, ...

Koch Int'l Classics, 1995

Alan Hovhaness (b. 1911) writes a kind of neo-romanticism. His music often partakes of the mystical and transcendental. This is no more evident than in Khrimaian Hairig for trumpet and string orchestra. Hovhaness's writing for strings is luscious and practically divine, especially in The Holy City (of 1967). Hovhaness is of Armenian extraction, and much of his music is influenced by Eastern European sources ( Kohar of 1946) and Asian as ...
