This wonderful recording features the complete ballet "Fall River Legend" by Morton Gould. The composer had recorded a suite from the ballet for RCA Victor, which is now available along with Aaron Copland's suite from "Appalachian Spring," with Copland conducting the Boston Symphony. Here is the full ballet that Gould composed in 1948 for Agnes De Mille in a really fine recording. An added attraction is a dialogue between Gould and De Mille that tells how the ballet came into being. For those unfamiliar with the story, it basically recreates the legend of Lizzie Borden, who was tried (and acquitted) for the murder of her parents in Fall River, Massachusetts, in the early 1890s. It was a wonderful score, filled with nostalgia and memorable melodies. This may be Gould's finest composition and the recording does it justice.
