This is a list of compositions by Alan Hovhaness (1911–2000), ordered by opus number.[1][2] Composition dates shown in Roman font are as given at Hovhaness.com,[3] while conflicting dates from Kunze[4] or New Grove[5] are shown in italics. Similarly, instrumentation shown in Roman font is as given at the Hovhaness.com website. Several place names and other names in composition titles are linked to disambiguation pages rather than to specific Wikipedia articles, because Hovhaness did not specify which "Wildcat Mountain", for instance, had been intended.[6]

  6. ^ Indeed, Hovhaness may have simply liked a name without having in mind any specific referent at all.
  7. ^ Op. 26: New Grove lists Op. 26 as "Suite no. 1 for orchestra", a title not otherwise found listed either at the Hovhaness website or in Kunze.
  8. ^ Op. 31: New Grove lists Op. 31 as "Hymn to Shasta", a title not otherwise found listed either at the Hovhaness website or in Kunze.
  9. ^ Op. 36: What Kunze refers to in error as being 1931 is "Dance Ghazal", which is not one of these "Two Ghazals", Op. 36, but instead is Op. 362, a different work. The "Two Ghazals" in Op. 36 are indicated by Hovhaness as 1) Andante espressivo and 2) Andante, per Koch International Classics 3-7288-2H1 (Marvin Rosen, piano, 1994), CD tracks 18–19 <http://www.arkivmusic.com/classical/album.jsp?album_id=13162&album_group=14>. Compare "Dance Ghazal" on Koch International Classics 3-7195-2H1 (Marvin Rosen, piano, 1992), CD track 1 (http://www.arkivmusic.com/classical/album.jsp?album_id=9666, or Crystal Records CD-813 (Wayne Johnson, piano, 1991), CD track 7 (http://www.crystalrecords.com/Hovhaness.html (both of which use the superseded Op. 37a catalog number rather than the recataloged Op. 362). Also see footnote for Op. 362.
  10. ^ Op. 40a: Both Hovhaness.com and Kunze agree on the 1940 date for this work. However, Hovhaness specialist Marvin Rosen in his text notes to Koch International Classics 3-7289-2 states with self-contradiction: "Psalm and Fugue, Opus 40a, written in 1958 ... was often used to open concerts organized by the composer during World War II."
  11. ^ Op. 48: "The work's title is an invented Armenian word which translates roughly to "'dawn of light,' meaning a kind of spiritual dawn or spiritual journey" (Hovhaness)." http://artofthestates.org/cgi-bin/piece.pl?pid=330
  12. ^ Op. 49: dates are per booklet notes to Koch International Classics 3-7289-2. Hovhaness.com gives only 1944, Kunze gives only 1948.
  13. ^ Op. 56, No. 3: Kunze designates this as Op. 56, No. 4, apparently from multiple recordings; he omits a No. 3.
  14. ^ Op. 60: Kunze gives this title as "Mihr (Ancient Armenian Fire God)", which description differs somewhat from Wikipedia's entry on Mithra/Mihr.
  15. ^ Op. 65: Kunze also lists an "Op. 65(2), Avak Symphony (1946–49)".
  16. ^ Op. 66, No. 2: Possibly Aghori?
  17. ^ Op. 71a: The Hovhaness.com website indicates that Op. 71a is a reduction for trumpet and piano, in place of strings, of the identical 10-minute playing length as Op. 71. In booklet notes to Koch International Classics 3-7221-2H1, CD track 3 (timing 3 1/2 minutes; no opus numbers indicated), Hovhaness writes "Haroutiun (Resurrection) ... contains both an aria and a fugue. Only the first movement is presented in this recording. The work [is] scored for trumpet and strings ..." Kunze correctly identifies this as being the excerpted aria, with strings, labeling it Op. 71(1) rather than Op. 71a, which he does not list.
  18. ^ a b c d Op. 74: The Hovhaness website makes no reference to Nos. 2, 3, 6, 7,or further numbers, or to an overall title; however, Kunze labels Op. 74 as "Demilune (9 Songs)", listing these same four as Nos. 1–4.
  19. ^ Op. 77: Translation from http://www.worldcat.org/title/zartik-parkim-awake-my-glory-for-chamber-orchestra/oclc/1928166; also given by Kunze.
  20. ^ Op. 78a: This version is not mentioned by Kunze.
  21. ^ Op. 88: "Arevakal: The Sunrise Service is one of the seven services found in Armenian Church breviary" [1]. Kunze gives "(Season of the Sun)" as a subtitle.
  22. ^ Op. 89, No. 1: According to Kunze, the 1951 version, only, was titled "Sivas".
  23. ^ Op. 91: Kunze gives this title as "Khaldis: God of the Universe", which is slightly different from the discussion given at the Wikipedia article.
  24. ^ Op. 93, No. 1: Kunze lists this viola concerto as Op. 93, No. 1a, and also gives an alternate version for clarinet and strings as Op. 93, No. 1b.
  25. ^ a b c d Op. 100: Although both Hovhaness.com and Kunze give an overall name of "Triptych", meaning "three-fold" or "in three parts" to Op. 100, the website lists four parts, and Kunze lists a total of five.
  26. ^ Op. 100, No. 3: Kunze also lists an Op. 100, No. 3b: Jesus Christ is Risen Today (1955).
  27. ^ Op. 107: Kunze gives this title as Island Sunrise (aka "Sunrise – Puerto Rico").
  28. ^ a b Op. 123, No. 3 was originally cataloged as Op. 123, No. 2; it was then later reclassified as Symphony No. 45, Op. 342.
  29. ^ Op. 132: According to an interview with Hovhaness at http://www.hovhaness.com/Interview_Amirkhanian_2.html, this opus number was arbitrarily picked out of the air by Leopold Stokowski, and the symphony was named on the spur of the moment by Hovhaness.
  30. ^ a b c Opp. 144 [aka Op. 144a] (for piano), 144a (for orchestra), 144b (for piano): These are three entirely different compositions, of differing durations. The two works for piano are frequently played and recorded together, usually referring to them as Op. 144a and Op. 144b, respectively.
  31. ^ Op. 174: Kunze names Op. 174 as "Ivivace Accordion Concerto".
  32. ^ Op. 178: Kunze gives "Nanga Parvat (Without Trees)" as the title to Symphony No. 7.
  33. ^ Op. 183: Kunze lists Wind Drum as an opera.
  34. ^ a b c Op. 188: Kunze gives the 1969 date for the full Symphony No. 12 without specifying dates separately for its component movements.
  35. ^ Op. 190: Instead of 1945/53, Kunze gives 1943/53; New Grove does not make the connection between the ballet and the symphony, but gives the former without an opus number as 1954, and the latter as Op. 190, "1954 rev. 1960".
  36. ^ Op. 194: Kunze also lists an Op. 194a, "Invocation to Ararat", dated 1962.
  37. ^ Op. 218: Booklet text notes to Koch International Classics 3-7289-2 written by Hohvaness specialist Marvin Rosen specifically say "The Holy City, Opus 218, was composed in 1965", but the front table of contents gives 1967. The text should normally be considered more trustworthy, because a contents listing is prepared later by clerical staff, which also listed tracks incorrectly on the back cover of the CD. The work is undated at Hovhaness.com; New Grove claims 1965 is correct; Kunze agrees with 1967 on the basis of 6 recordings in his possession. But also compare the footnote for Op. 40a.
  38. ^ Op. 219: Kunze lists The Leper King as an opera; New Grove calls it a "music-drama".
  39. ^ Op. 227: classified as an "opera-oratorio" by New Grove.
  40. ^ Op. 230: Possibly referring to Lingnan traditions of brush painting and calligraphy? Compare http://www.jamestan.com/06.html
  41. ^ Op. 241: Kunze lists this title as "3 Tsamicos and Fugue".
  42. ^ Op. 247: The obscure name Hermes Stella has to do with the theory that the works of William Shakespeare were written by Francis Bacon – compare Op. 307, Symphony No. 33. Kunze lists Op. 247 as a piano sonata.
  43. ^ Op. 261: According to New Grove, this opus number is titled Overture to Pericles. No work with this exact title appears in either the Hovhaness website or Kunze, but presumably this is the overture to the opera Pericles, Op. 283. The overture is more likely to be for full orchestra than for merely violin and piano.
  44. ^ Op. 274: Here Sasa is the name of a cat belonging to Hovhaness.
  45. ^ Op. 277: The Hovhaness website lists only this one work, whereas Kunze lists Fantasy for double bass as Op. 277, No. 2, and adds (only in his "Appendix D: By Opus Number", but not in his main "Alphabetic Listing") Sonata for double bass as Op. 277, No. 1, dated 1977. He notes that he has no recording of either.
  46. ^ Op. 278, No. 2: New Grove reverses Op. 278, No. 2, and Op. 279.
  47. ^ Op. 279: New Grove reverses Op. 279 and Op. 278, No. 2.
  48. ^ Op. 280: In addition to giving the "Consolation" subtitle not found at either the Hovhaness website or in Kunze, New Grove omits all instrumentation except "strings" – possibly a different symphony?
  49. ^ Op. 289: Kunze specifies euphonium instead of baritone horn.
  50. ^ Op. 303: The fourth movement of this sonata, named Vision of a Starry Night, is frequently performed and recorded alone.
  51. ^ Op. 307: Compare footnote to Op. 247.
  52. ^ Op. 311: see http://whale.ulsan.go.kr/php/app/contents/source/contents.php?id=711&code=echb&type=A
  53. ^ Op. 324: Kunze mentions only brass quintet, omitting timpani and strings.
  54. ^ Op. 325: According to New Grove, Op. 325 consists of two guitar concertos. But see Op. 394, Guitar Concerto No. 2.
  55. ^ Op. 353: A type of Ottoman classical music?
  56. ^ Op. 356: Although the Hovhaness website states this symphony exists only in manuscript, Kunze possesses a recording on Crystal CD-811 [2], with Gerard Schwarz conducting the Northwest Sinfonia.
  57. ^ Op. 362: Kunze lists Dance Ghazal in error as Op. 36 No. 1. This composition was originally cataloged as Op. 37a, and subsequently recataloged as Op. 362, although many recordings still list the superseded opus number. See Op. 36 and footnote for further information. For Op. 362 Kunze lists "Cascade Mountains Dances" for piano solo, with an unknown date, a title not listed at all at the Hovhaness.com website. Kunze notes that he has no recording of this purported composition.
  58. ^ Op. 366: Kunze gives the title "To Hiroshige's Cat" instead.
  59. ^ a b c d According to New Grove only, Symphony No. 53 is Op. 378, Symphony No. 54 is Op. 379, and Symphony No. 55 is Op. 380. New Grove does not list Symphony No. 56.
  60. ^ Op. 383: Music for Erick Hawkins ballet, per New Grove; "Possibly same work as Septet Op. 295", per Hovhaness website.
  61. ^ Op. 394: Compare footnote to Op. 325; New Grove confirms this title as well, thereby contradicting itself.
  62. ^ Op. 395: The subtitle Bellevue appears only in Kunze, apparently taken from an LP recording in his collection.
  63. ^ a b c d e f For all referenced Opp., New Grove omits any mention of woodwinds or brass. Kunze never lists instrumentation at all other than primary soloists.
  64. ^ Op. 398: This may refer to Srpouhi Dussap.
  65. ^ Op. 406: According to Kunze this sonata is for flute (or violin) and harp.
  66. ^ Op. 408: The Hawkins ballet Plains Daybreak is an unrelated work without opus number composed in 1977, according to New Grove, which lists God the Reveller as a separate Hawkins ballet.
