Between 1965 and 1968, Morton Gould conducted the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in a handful of recordings for RCA Victor. Over the years, these recordings have become scarce and difficult to find — until this compiled release on Sony Classical.

New York City native Gould was a Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, Grammy® Award-winning conductor, prolific arranger and prodigious pianist who achieved renown in both classical and popular music. His Chicago Symphony Orchestra recordings reflect his exceptionally wide musical affinities, ranging from American music, including his own Spirituals for Orchestra and works by Ives, Carl Nielsen’s Clarinet Concerto and Second Symphony and an album with clarinetist Benny Goodman.
