Another triumph for Naxos, in their American Classics series. The music here is accessible and very enjoyable. It isn't often these days that this reviewer finds tears welling up at a new musical discovery, but it's happened with An American Abroad. Super playing by orchestra throughout, and by Colin Currie in percussion concerto. (I'm not in general a great fan of percussion, but thoroughly enjoy this piece).
The great thing about Naxos pricing is that you can afford to take a risk with music you don't know. How glad I am that I did with this.
