I am so digging king-fm’s broadcast of Alan Hovaness’ Guitar Concerto, Op.325 (performers currently unknown by me). I’m just starting a non-fiction bio about the American West, circa 1840-1880 and the contrast between the solo guitar and the lush symphonic passages, and the loose timing of the solo parts contrasting with the slightly serialist framework of the orchestra make it an evocative soundtrack.
That, and my sweet kitty’s quiet, happy snoring.
(Update – I may very well have linked to the performance I just heard as the recording cited featured the concerto and additionally the composer’s Symphony No. 60, as this Naxos release does.)
