Written in 1945, Still’s Fifth is an attractive, easy to listen to and evocative American Symphony.
The movements are described thusly:
- 1. “The vigorous, life-sustaining forces of the Hemisphere” (briskly)
- 2. “The natural beauties of the Hemisphere” (slower, and with utmost grace)
- 3. “The nervous energy of the Hemisphere” (energetically)
- 4. “The overshadowing spirit of kindness and justice in the Hemisphere” (moderately)
John Jeter conducts the Fort Smith Symphony.
