Notes & Reviews:

William Havergal Brian was virtually self-taught in composition, and in the early 20th century began to make a name for himself. Some of his music was admired by Elgar, works of his were performed by conductors such as Henry Wood and Thomas Beecham, but the musical establishment - with the exception of his good friend Sir Granville Bantock - passed him by and his growing body of mature work remained almost entirely unknown and unperformed. With the death of Bantock in 1946, Brian lost his last advocate for performances of his music. Then, in the early 1950s, his work came to the attention of a young BBC music producer named Robert Simpson, who gradually brought about a growing number of performances (mostly in radio broadcasts), which began to initiate recognition of Brian's achievement.
