Notes & Reviews:

Legendary performances on CD for the first time! Daniel Jones (1912-1993) was one of Wales's leading composers in the post-1945 era, and one of the most distinguished symphonists of his generation. He was brought up in Swansea, a city that became something of a magnet for Jones throughout his life. It was here that he struck up lasting friendships with Dylan Thomas, Vernon Watkins, and other "free spirits" who shared Jones's zest for life. Musically influenced by Purcell, Haydn, and Janacek (!), Jones composed thirteen symphonies, of which three of the fi nest are recorded here.
