About

William Wallace was a classical scholar, a doctor and eye surgeon, a poet and dramatist, a writer on music and musicians, and the man described by Shaw as ‘a young Scotch composer with a very tender and sympathetic talent’. His orchestral compositions rank amongst them the earliest attempts at the genre of the symphonic poem to be made in the British Isles, his choice of subjects for these being at least as wide-ranging as his own interests and achievements.

Gramophone Editor's Choice / Gramophone Critics' Choice
‘Hyperion have once again triumphed in rescuing some inexplicably neglected Scottish music … it is simply unbelievable that the symphonic poems presented here have had to wait till now to be recorded … once again Martyn Brabbins procures superbly assured and crafted performances from the BBCSSO, and the recorded sound too is of the highest quality’ - Gramophone

‘Ideal for lovers of late-Romantic music’ - BBC Music Magazine
