1920s/30s Gallery

Early Boston performance, 1933

A 1933 concert program of works either transcribed or composed by composition students of the New England Conservatory of Music. The two works by 22 year-old 'Alan S. Hovaness' are Song of the Sea (tone poem for pianoforte and string orchestra) and Sunset Saga. Neither of these youthful works would survive into the official catalogue, but musical content was re-used in later works.
