Album

And God Created Great Whales, Op. 229, No. 1, is a symphonic poem for orchestra and recorded whale sounds by the American composer Alan Hovhaness. The work was commissioned by Andre Kostelanetz and the New York Philharmonic, who premiered the piece on June 11, 1970, in New York City. The piece has been recorded numerous times and remains one of Hovhaness's most popular compositions. 8 for Orchestra Anahid Etc. This is classic 20th century music. And God Created Great Whales 1970 is for orchestra and the taped songs of whales, including humpback, bowhead, and killer whales. The piece begins with rushing sounds in the strings and a simple melody that emerges in the brass and high bells. The music becomes quieter, and a lovely and light pentatonic melody like a sea shanty occurs in the high winds and strings, with lovely harmonies beneath. Read about And God Created Great Whales from Alan Hovhaness's Mysterious Mountain, And God Created Great Whales and see the artwork, lyrics and similar artists. Alan Hovhaness March 8, 1911 June 21, 2000 was an American composer of Armenian and Scottish descent. His music is accessible to the lay listener and often evokes a mood of mystery or contemplation. The Boston Globe music critic Richard Buell wrote: Although he has been stereotyped as a self-consciously Armenian composer rather as Ernest Bloch is seen as a Jewish composer, his output assimilates the music of many cultures.
