Mennin’s fifth symphony of 1950, which is tonal, energetic and suspenseful, was recorded by Howard Hanson and the Eastman Rochester Orchestra in the Mercury series of American classical works — the original LP also included the “New England Triptych” of William Schuman — and for years was the only widely-available recording of Mennin’s work, though its reissue on CD prompted several other recordings of Mennin compositions.
Juilliard awards a Peter Mennin prize, for Outstanding Achievement and Leadership in Music.
His notable students include Jacob Druckman, Richard Danielpour, Karl Korte, Charles L. Bestor, and Claire Polin.
