Spoke Too Soon

Well, I have to retract one item I said wasn’t available on CD: the Bernstein recording of Roy Harris’s Third Symphony. There were a few years when this was true, and the only CD of the piece out there was by (once again) Neeme Jarvi, but the great old 1961 Bernstein recording finally appeared, and I forgot that’s the one I have. There are also a couple of CDs of the Harris Seventh. So the first nine symphonies of this once-celebrated American romantic can be found – but what about the last five, which seem never to have been recorded?
