Luc Brewaey's vibrant, colorful "recompositions" for orchestra of Debussy preludes (a 2-CD set on the obscure Talent label), Alfred Newman's classic film score "The Robe" (even Aaron Copland regarded Newman as an exceptional American composer) and Bloch's "Three Jewish Poems" (Atlas conducting, on the ASV label). Good listening all around, especially after a long, tiring, six-day work week!

Nice variety there, Bill! I haven't been able to get ahold of a copy of that Talent set, but I have heard Colin Matthews' magical orchestrations of the Debussy Preludes, which take the music to a whole new dimension. As you can see by my avatar, Bloch is a composer whose music I never seem to tire of. He put his soul into every single one of his compositions, producing music of both great purity and passion. :)
