I was much more interested in the orchestra than the piano, but I did become fairly proficient as a pianist and my teachers felt I had talent and wanted me to become a good concert pianist and earn my living that way.

Author introduction

Alan Hovhaness (/hoʊˈvɑːnɪs/;[1] March 8, 1911 – June 21, 2000) was an American composer. He was one of the most prolific 20th-century composers, with his official catalog comprising 67 numbered symphonies (surviving manuscripts indicate over 70) and 434 opus numbers.[2] The true tally is well over 500 surviving works since many opus numbers comprise two or more distinct works.
