Ogg file[edit]

Is the ogg file at the bottom of the page there? (Will check at my own computer, but I did check the description page and found no file, which is understandable for copyright reasons; if you can't get permission from the composer or his agents, and the performers, or else don't need it, and place an appropriate tag exactly as with images, the file's likely to be removed, I think...) So should it be removed from this one, at least pending copyright expiring or that permission's being obtained? Schissel : bowl listen 16:36, Jun 9, 2005 (UTC)

Serious Music[edit]

"Serious American music" is not an accurate description or musical term to describe Hanson's support of American classical music.

A Sea Symphony[edit]


I have created a disambiguation page for [[A_Sea_Symphony_(Disambiguation)|A Sea Symphony]]. Ideally, that page should bring the general title A Sea Symphony that is now given to Vaughan Williams' first symphony. However, until an article dedicated to Hanson's 7th is written, people seem against this move. Would somebody write something about H.H. 7th?

Thanks in advance. --Mahlerite (talk) 12:15, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Well, I have created a stub. If somebody could expand it... Thanks in advance. --Mahlerite (talk) 13:27, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Removed link. DAB page unneeded, Vaughan Williams article has appropriate hatnote. — Timneu22 · talk 13:56, 10 April 2010 (UTC)


An editor has written in the article that Howard Hanson did not study under Respighi - which contradicts the New Grove article which normally would be treated as a reputable source. I'm not sure how information allegedly taken from an unpublished autobiography and which may well be true should be treated here. If I find a more definite *published* source which confirms either way, I will incorporate this in the article with relevant citation - but hope maybe another editor might do the same.

It seems there is an unpublished autobiography, in the care of John C Brzustowicz (see here and here). Still, I'm wary of treating this - unseen and unpublished - as authoritative when there's this from Howard Hanson in Theory and Practice by Allen Laurence Cohen, which suggests a direct claim by Hanson about his studies with Respighi. Any other thoughts? Alfietucker (talk) 13:17, 29 September 2013 (UTC)
