Synopsis

Album Description
A MAJOR 20th-CENTURY WORK REDISCOVERED! The Genesis Suite depicts the earliest Bible stories, including the Creation, Adam and Eve, the Flood, and the Tower of Babel, narrated by distinguished actors accompanied by full orchestra and chorus. This unique collaboration of seven famous composers, most of them European exiles living in Hollywood during World War II, was performed only once, in 1945, before much of the music was lost in a fire. FULLY RESTORED from recently discovered original manuscripts, the Genesis Suite is now presented in its first modern recording.

The Genesis Suite
S. K. Hogan | 05/19/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Genesis Suite is an interesting and inspirational piece. Read about its history if you have time. I recommend the CD and a trip to the Seattle Symphony performance on May 29 or 31, 2008."
