About

An important 2 CD release of the very first commercial recordings of the music of Havergal Brian, made for Columbia and Unicorn in the 1970s.

The performances, given by the Leicestershire Schools Symphony Orchestra, have been re-mastered and feature the only available recording of the composerís 21st Symphony.

'In summary, this set could convert some new listeners to Brianís music. The playing is never less than good and it is often brilliant. This should be in the collection of anyone even remotely interested in British music. Bravo.í - MusicWeb International
