Janos Starker, cello Seattle Symphony Orchestra Dennis Russell Davies, conductor. Symphony No. 22, Op. 236, "City of Light". 4. Allegro moderato 5. Angel of Light 6. Allegretto grazioso 7. Finale: Largo maestoso. Seattle Symphony Orchestra Alan Hovhaness, conductor. Heard here in a composer-conducted disc-mate to the première recording of Hovhaness’s early Cello Concerto (1936), City of Light (1970) has some lovely ideas, like the surprisingly sweet and simple string melody in the middle of the ‘Angel of Light’ movement (beginning at 1'30"),.

Seattle Symphony Orchestra. Concerto for Cello and Orchestra. Alan Hovhaness Composer. Dennis Russell Davies Conductor. Seattle Symphony Orchestra. Author: Andrew Farach-Colton. Hovhaness Symphony No 22, 'City of Light'; Cello Concerto. 22, 'City of Light'. The Cello Concerto, on the other hand, is required listening for Hovhaness admirers. The composer destroyed several hundred of his compositions during a period of self-reflection in the early 1940s, but the Cello Concerto survived the cull, finally receiving its première in 1999 (by the same forces heard on this recording). The music’s modal tinge is pure Hovhaness, but there is a spareness to the writing that sets this work apart from its successors. Indeed, the tone is unrelievedly elegiac, making the Elgar Concerto seem positively jovial by comparison.
