The Unheard Ferde Grofe, including "Hawaii Suite"!
Courtesy of Kevin Tam and Irv Lipscomb, ten Ferde Grofe tracks from the Florida State University Ferde Grofe Audio Collection. We're talking about two movements from Hawaii Suite, as well as Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, Ode to an American Soldier, Hollywood Suite (not the NAXOS recording!), and more! Rush, don't stroll over, to: The Unheard Ferde Grofe.
Note: We've already heard Kentucky Derby Suite at this blog, as well as another version of Hymn of Gratitude (as part of the Valley of the Sun Suite)--plus, a portion of Ode to an American Soldier as Over There Fantasie (different version, again). Otherwise, everything's "new." Enjoy!
