Brian: Symphony no 2, Festival Fanfare / Rowe, Moscow SO

Album Summary

>Brian, Havergal : Festival Fanfare
>Brian, Havergal : Symphony no 2 in E minor
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Orthodox in its four-movement structure but, according to the composer, 'very unorthodox inside', Havergal Brian's Symphony No. 2 was originally inspired by Goethe's play Gotz von Berlichingen. In 1972, however, following the death of his beloved daughter, Brian dedicated his forty-year old Symphony to her memory. Scored for a big orchestra which calls, among other requirements, for sixteen horns, three sets of timpani, two pianos and organ, the Symphony includes a furious ostinato-scherzo, and a tragic funeral march entirely conceived in Brian's own terms, yet unafraid to evoke echoes of Siegfried's Funeral March from Gotterdammerung.
