Lincoln Portrait was commissioned by Andre Kostelanetz for the Cincinnati Symp hony Orchestra in 1942. A stirring tribute to an eminent American, it includes fragments of songs from the Civil War era, sweeping original themes, and a na rration drawn from Lincoln's own words. This transcription by Walter Beeler ha s become a staple in the repertoire for wind bands, and provides an impressive way to help celebrate the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth.
