NEW ENGLAND VIRTUES

Do it well. Do it right. Do it with pride and give your best to it. That was Alan Hovhaness' way with everything he composed. A master of his craft, it was said that he could dash off a double-fugue on command. Analysis of one work, the Concerto for Two Pianos and Orchestra showed that he was basing complex rhythmic patterns on the Golden Section.

Any wonder that every town through which I passed had its own landmarks of this quality? Each town hall, library, meeting house; even the water works, was elegantly built. Built to last and built to stand proud.

(Interesting note: Atakan Sari was the other pianist appearing with me in the Armenian premiere performance of Hovhaness' Concerto for Two Pianos and Orchestra. The first Turkish soloist ever to appear with the Armenian Philharmonic, he was given a heartfelt welcome by both orchestra and public. Hovhaness would have been happy to see that "All Men are Brothers" was alive and well!)
