Synopsis

Amazon.com
David Diamond's Symphony 1 (1941) is an exuberant work, brassy and brash, filled with spunk, just the sort of piece a young composer, fresh from his studies with Nadia Boulanger in Paris and feeling his oats, would write. It shows Diamond as having an original voice, unique to American romanticism. His music is filled with all manner of punctuated rhythms, staggered chords, and sudden fanfares--and the occasional meditative passage. The Violin Concerto is a 1947 composition that does not call for extreme versatility (though Ilkka Talvi does have her moments). Delos's David Diamond series is uniformly quite successful. Recommended. --Paul Cook
