Notes & Reviews:

Daniel Jones (1912-1993) composed in a wide range of genres, yet the cornerstone of his prolific output is the Symphony, memorably described by him as 'a dramatic structure with an emotive intention'. He tackled the form afresh with each of his 13 examples, of which the first 12 are based on a different note of the chromatic scale. Though each of his thirteen symphonies is a unique and highly personal statement, the cycle as a whole maintains an unwavering consistency of quality and vision. Daniel Jones demonstrates a steadfast integrity throughout, never bowing to the latest trends. His priority is always to communicate directly with the listener.
