  • April 05, 2009 One of the truly great pieces from the late 20th

    This piece has a place among the greatest symphonies of all time. Through the effective use of the orchestra, programmatic elements, and musical forms, Corigliano created an immensely effective piece that evokes all of the intended emotional responses and is able to stand on its own in musical quality. Truly...

    a great piece.
