Fifth symphonies reprised

One of the Fifth Symphonies in Steve's review is by Ellen Taaffe Zwilich.

That's a name worth following up -

And remember too, Pliable, that composer James Primosch mentioned John Harbison's Symphony #5 (with mezzo-soprano and baritone), premiered last spring by James Levine and the Boston Sym [which was paired then with Mahler's Song of the Earth with different singers], in response to your post on Valentin Silvestrov and composers' fifth symphonies.

Talk about concert music having aspirations! At least it often does in Boston, and maybe soon in New York City, under the Philharmonic's incoming director.
