The city of Cleveland, Ohio takes justifiable pride in its great Cleveland Orchestra and in the master composers who have been part of its musical life -- Ernest Bloch, Roger Sessions, Quincy Porter, Douglas Moore, Arthur Shepherd, and Herbert Elwell.

The Cleveland Composers’ Guild had its beginnings in the late 1920’s as a “Manuscript Section” of the Fortnightly Musical Club, the objective being to bring together “those residents of the Cleveland area who wish to cooperate with their colleagues in the dissemination of their work and to provide the area with creative as well as executant excellence.”


The introductory remarks contained in the Guild’s brochure state further: “These men and women do not believe that composers write primarily for each other. They have attained a standard that makes it possible for them to claim the attention and interest of a discerning public, to offer performers and listeners material of substance and value, and to contribute ultimately - as individuals rather than as a ‘school’ - to the literature of music.” It is in this spirit that the Cleveland Composers’ Guild and Composers Recordings, Inc. offer the works represented on NWCRL182 and NWCRL183.

This title, originally issued on the CRI label, is now available as a burn-on-demand CD (CD-R) or download in MP3/320, FLAC or WAV formats. CD-Rs come in a protective sleeve; no print booklet or jewel case included. Full liner notes are accessible via the link above.
