    I always thought Ottman would be the one.  Disclaimer: not based on any rumors or anything just his association with Singer.  Who am I kidding I don't have enough of a career to torpedo with an errant post on JWFan.

    Lukas Foss - Symphony No. 4 "A Window to the Past" (1995)
     
    I enjoy this symphony quite a bit.  Foss was more than a bit of a stylistic magpie and especially of interest here is the strange slow movement.  It's essentially an Americana take on Bartok's "Night Music" style.  Shimmering, sliding pianissimo strings, muted brass, atmospheric percussion, but also harmonica and jaw harp.  At one point near the end it becomes kind of a ghostly march.  The movement is much too long though.  It could have been cut in half and still achieved the same effect.
     
    Give it a listen.

    Irving Fine’s Partita for Wind Quintet is truly sublime.  I’ve listened like 10 times today, it’s very centering.
     
    That Stravinskian neoclassicism with an American charm is very appealing to me.

    American by birth is hard.  But American as in writing in this country for a decent portion of their life is a little easier.  This is the first that comes to mind, a work I've loved since childhood.
