Thank you for thinking American...

Looking at your list, and not having thought of playing movements from
larger works...

I am also reminded of things like the First Movement of the Randall
Thompson 3rd Symphony.  I have an old recording of Munch rehearsing the
work...Thompson makes a few remarks...about the first movement he mentioned
his being influence by the "terrible effects the war had on all of us."

Also, noticing above the mention of Piston...also the slow movement of
his Second Symphony and that most beautiful clarinet solo...

So many others come to mind, but I am most impressed by your list, as
there are several works like the DeLong etc.  that are new to me.

Thanks for sharing.
