Some years ago I bought the Hanson series on Delos which didn't convince. You're always told the - certainly his first symphonies - have to have the dark Sibelius touch. Well you won't find it with Schwarz.
Now, with this recording and very convincing playing by a well-trained (provincial) orchestra you'll have top quality performances for a very low prices.
I heard the tone poem Pan and the Priest for the first time ever and it blowed me over.
Volume 1 sounds very good, if they'll record all of Hanson's works I'll sell the Delos Series. Anyone interested?

Most enthusiasts for American 20th century classical music will know the gorgeous Howard Hanson 2nd symphony but I find that all the 7 are stunningly beautiful. This 1st symphony completes my collection of his symphonies and there are some remarkably fine smaller works contained within the Naxos set Hanson CD's

Lovely lovely stuff highly recommended!
