Symphony N. ("Mysterious Mountain"), Op. 132. 1. Movement 1. Alan Hovhaness. 2. Movement 2. 3. Movement 3. 4. Movement 4. Divertimento, symphonic suite for orchestra from the ballet The Fairy's Kiss.

KIJE Suite - especially in the "Romance" and "Death" scenes, where the sheer pathos is all the more effective for being so unexpected - because it does not overtly burst the bonds of the satirical emotional "framework". This all sounds rather "cerebral", but Reiner and his Orchestra make it WORK. It, too, is one of the very great Stravinsky recordings; for one thing, the purity and Buddha-like concentration of "Bud" Herseth's final trumpet solo - AND Reiner's hypnotic accompaniment - must be heard to be believed.

Sergei Prokofiev's Lieutenant Kijé (Russian: Поручик Киже, Poruchik Kizhe) music was originally written to accompany the film of the same name, produced by the Belgoskino film studios in Leningrad in 1933–34 and released in March 1934. It was Prokofiev's first attempt at film music, and his first commission. In the early days of sound cinema, among the various distinguished composers ready to try their hand at film music, Prokofiev was not an obvious choice for the commission
