Description: Hearshen is one of America's most successful orchestrators and arrangers as well as a composer of film scores. The major work here is the four-movement, 46-minute Symphony on Sousa themes (1994-97), adventurously constructed, richly melodic and colorfully scored; the Divertimento (1988) mines the American jazz vernacular. The USAF Heritage of America Band, The United States Air Force Band (Divertimento); Col. Lowell Graham.
