美國作曲家霍華涅斯(1911-2000)畢生追求精神境界和真理,一向主張無調音樂違反自然(因為宇宙萬物都必定存在一個中心),此所以其作品特別平易近人,雅俗共賞。標題《神祕山岳》的《第2號交響曲》係應史托科夫斯基委託所作,全曲具有浪漫交響格局和巴洛克複音手法,精神內涵則是將山岳視為人類理解上帝的象徵。標題《聖海倫火山》的《第50號交響曲》,三個樂章分別描寫火山爆發前的山脈之美、湖泊之美,以及爆發時的威猛力道。標題《冰河頂峰讚美詩》的《第66號交響曲》,是為西雅圖青年交響樂團五十週年慶而寫,靈感源自他病中每天從窗口眺望的風景,第二樂章則為獻給太太的愛之歌。演奏時間不到四分鐘的《山貓山暴風雨》,是對童年登新罕布什州白色山脈的回憶。吉拉德.史瓦茲先前指揮西雅圖交響樂團所灌錄的65張CD,曾十次提名葛萊美獎。他2001年9月出任英國皇家利物浦愛樂音樂總監,企圖心更加強烈,這張精彩無比的發燒天碟就是最佳例證

Alan Hovhaness' final champion, Gerard Schwarz, leads the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra on a Telarc recording that brings this great American composer's works to life. Hovhaness was one of the most prolific American composers, with more than four hundred opuses to his credit. Included on this new recording from Telarc are Mysterious Mountain, Hymn to Glacier Peak, Mount St. Helens and Storm on Mount Wildcat.

Hovhaness' musical style was unlike any other 20th century composer. He followed his "instinct and his voice."

After attending Tanglewood in Lenox, Massachusetts, on scholarship and drawing harsh criticism from Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein, Hovhaness burned more than one thousand pieces of music in his fireplace. In an effort to regain a better sense of creative direction, he returned to his ethnic roots in Armenia. Around this time, his music came to the attention of conductor Leopold Stokowski, who performed his Symphony No. 1, Exile, with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and later commissioned and premiered Hovhaness' Symphony No. 2, Mysterious Mountain, Op. 132.

Vilem Sokol and the Seattle Youth Orchestra invited him in 1966 to conduct his music in Seattle, and a year later he became Composer-in-Residence, and made the city his home for the remainder of his life. Gerard Schwarz, then the new young conductor of the Seattle Symphony, conducted (and later recorded) Hovhaness' Symphony No. 50, Mount St. Helens, Op. 360. In 1991, the Seattle Youth Symphony commissioned Hovhaness to write a symphony for their 50th anniversary season. The result was Symphony No. 66, Hymn to Glacier Peak. The second of the symphony's three movements is "Love Song to Hinako," an ode to Hovhaness' wife.

Schwarz and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra's new recording on Telarc features not only Hymn to Glacier Peak, Mysterious Mountain and Mount St. Helens, but also a lively performance of Storm on Mount Wildcat, which was originally composed in 1931, when Hovhaness was twenty years old.

American conductor Gerard Schwarz has been Music Director of the Seattle Symphony since 1985, and recently began his new tenure as Music Director of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. He served a long and distinguished tenure as Music Director of New York's Mostly Mozart Festival from 1982 to 2001, and recently completed his successful collaboration as Music Director of the New York Chamber Symphony—a post he has held since 1976. Recent and upcoming guest conducting engagements include appearances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Saint Louis Symphony, Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields and a return to the Seattle Opera, among others.
