GOULD, M.: Concerto Grosso / Formations / Cinerama Holiday Suite (Seattle Symphony, Schwarz)

Spanning the traditional boundaries separating “serious” and “popular” music, Morton Gould wrote prodigiously across a wide range of forms, from concert works to musicals and film scores. The Concerto Grosso was described by the composer as “a transformation of hoedown tunes…[the soloists] play, in the first and last movements, like a bat out of hell.” Gould’s work for film and television ranged from the movie travelogue Cinerama Holiday to the poignant Holocaust, via the ironic dances of World War I. The jazzy Pavanne contrasts with the atmospheric Interlude, while the Formation Suite is an original take on marching bands.
