An Alan Hovhaness concert recorded February 25, 1978 at St. John's Church in Berkeley, California. This concert was presented by 1750 Arch Street. The program includes a number of his works performed publicly for the first time and features Hovhaness, on piano, his wife Hinako Fujihara, as the soprano, and their daughter Jean Nandi on harpsichord.

After the concert Hovhaness listens to the opening of “Mysterious Mountain”, and speaks about his “Sonata for Harpsichord” and “Celestial Canticle”. This is followed by a 26 minute long interview between Steve Wolfe and Hovhaness conducted on the day after the concert (2/26/1978). During the interview Hovhaness speaks about his “Sonata for Soprano and Piano” and his opera “Pericles”.
