The Symphony No. 22, titled "City of Light," is grand Hovhaness, with massive brass statements and elegant contrapuntal doodlings. Again, playing and sound are first-rate. This CD is a beautiful bargain. One of the few early Hovhaness works that escaped the bonfire was his Cello Concerto of 1936; even so, it was not performed until 1975 or recorded until 1999, the year before the composer's death. Listening to this sinuous, poignant work, alternately delicate and majestic, I can only wonder how it took so long to make it to disc.

Finale: Largo maestoso. Seattle Symphony Orchestra Alan Hovhaness, conductor. Heard here in a composer-conducted disc-mate to the première recording of Hovhaness’s early Cello Concerto (1936), City of Light (1970) has some lovely ideas, like the surprisingly sweet and simple string melody in the middle of the ‘Angel of Light’ movement (beginning at 1'30"),.
