When I started this blog, one of my intentions was to share all of the Hovhaness that I have (and let me tell you it's a lot, I must be one of his number one followers errrr I mean fans), and right away in succession, a true posting "flood". The unfortunate, wonderful thing is that there is just too too much music out there that I also love, and it seemed to me that it would be tedious and take some of the magic and excitement out of the discoveries for (some) visitors. Indeed, I meant to have an all-Hovhaness tribute blog years ago, as well as a proper website to spread awareness of Arnold Rosner's music, way before an official page finally came into existence. Here's the official Rosner site for those interested: http://www.arnoldrosnermusic.com/ The 'webmaster' is one Carson Cooman, also a (fairly young) composer who admired Rosner's music for many years. Rosner tried to get Carson and myself together for many years, feeling we'd be kindred spirits, and also to discuss archiving Rosner's music and the caring for his estate when the time would come. Because of all the darkness and conflict in my life at the time, I resisted, for several years. I finally met Mr. Cooman at Rosner's memorial concert and I cannot say that I was terribly impressed. WOW I am getting off-topic, sorry all!
I will say one more thing. I am usually hesitant to post a lot of Hovhaness as I assume that most visitors to my blog already have the majority of available recordings. As his music saved my life so to speak several times, and since it's one of the most important, transcendental and beautiful parts of my arbitrary human life-I suppose it's my duty to keep sharing it if anyone finds it to be a discovery, whether it's 100 people or a single visitor having his/her first acquaintance; AH changed my life for the better many moons ago, and words fail to express how substantial that enrichment was and remains today.
