AMERICAN HIGHWAYS #56: Ancient Desert Drone
As part two of our ongoing series on Henry Cowell’s complete symphonies, pianist Guy Livingston brings us some fantastic orchestrations, some energetic orchestral music, and some eerie drones. Are these wind effects from the badlands of the American southwest? Or are they didgeridoos of the Australian outback? Listen and find out. Also music of Carl Ruggles, conducted by Christoph Von Dohnányi.
