William Schuman: Symphonies Nos. 7 & 10

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
These recordings of William Schuman's "Seventh" and "Tenth" symphonies by Gerard Schwarz conducting the Seattle Symphony are neither the works' first recordings nor, perhaps, their best recordings, but they are still absolutely worthy recordings that deserve to be heard by anyone who loves American symphonic music of the twentieth century.
