Conflict and Passion in Morton Gould's Jericho



FONT SIZE: +  -





    I read the article by Frank Battisti on A Morton Gould Salute in February. There was one omission, [Jericho Rhapsody, from the discussion of his works]. In the analysis that I wrote for The Instrumentalist on Jericho Rhapsody (January 1995), I pointed out that in my many conversations with Morton, he told me that Jericho Rhapsody was composed in 1938 or 1939 for the Pennsylvania School Music Association (now the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association). Gould regretted that he did not date his compositions during that period. Gould claimed that due to the pressures of the deadline for its initial performance, the work was written literally overnight.
