Other Minds, my organization in San Francisco, would be interested in 
digitizing it for our radiOM.org site. We're in touch with the 
composer's widow and could check out the details. Nice find!

>I have recently acquired a tape that is identified as "Alan 
>Hovhaness 'Birthday Concert'," recorded in Seattle March 18, 1984. 
>According to the concert program in the box, the concert included 
>the World Premieres of his Opus 367 Sonata for Piano "On the Long 
>Total Eclipse of the Moon, July 6, 1982," and "Invocations to 
>Vahaken", Opus 54, No. 1 (1945) for piano and percussion, along with 
>performances of three other pieces.

>This is completely out of my area of expertise. Is this tape a copy 
>of a widely available recording, or is it of interest to Hovhaness 
>scholars (or perhaps both)? Is there a Hovhaness archive or other 
>collection that might want this?
