Lloyd: Eighth Symphony / Lloyd, Philharmonia Orchestra

Album Summary

>Lloyd, George : Symphony no 8
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...Although the Eighth was written in 1961 its idiom belongs to the pre-war English school of Moeran and Vaughan Williams. But then Lloyd has unashamedly continued to write traditional, accessible music. The first movement of the Eighth has the most haunting opening of any of the 12 symphonies [all now available on Albany]...the performance under his baton is spontaneously authoritative and very well recorded. If you enjoy Lloyd you won't be disappointed." IM, Gramophone
