Joubert: Symphony no 1 / Handley, London PO

Album Summary

>Joubert, John : Symphony no 1, Op. 20
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

New recordings! For years Joubert led a double career as academician and composer, but he took early retirement as a professor in 1986 in order to devote time exclusively to composition. Since retirement, he has completed two large-scale projects including the oratorio Wings of Faith. Joubert’s music has a strong sense of melody. His First Symphony was commissioned in 1955 by the Hull Philharmonic Society and first performed the following year under the baton of Vilem Tausky. Although very much a youthful work, written when Joubert was still in his twenties, it nevertheless represents his coming-of-age as a composer.
