In this re-packaging of William Schuman's Symphony No. 6, Walter Piston's Symphony No. 4, and Roy Harris' Symphony No. 7, Ormandy's conducting seems perfunctory and his involvement seems minimal, the Philadelphia's playing seems uninvolved and rushed, and Columbia's late-'50s sound is serviceable but not much more.
More than that, the Harris and the Schuman symphonies get bang-up performances. Actually, the Harris Symphony 7, so rarely recorded (or performed) at all, comes across as being perfectly suited to a mono recording. It's too bad that Ormandy didn't return to these works in full stereo. But the digital mastering job by Debra Parkinson is absolutely astonishing. These post-war symphonies are among the best American works of their kind.

On this Naxos disc, you'll find three wonderful postwar American symphonies by Roy Harris, William Schuman and Walter Piston played by the always-superb Philadelphia Orchestra. While I wish Naxos would make reissues from the original tapes rather than LPs, these transfers are as good as any others I have heard-although Pristine has refurbished some Hanson discs with spectacular results.
