Bax Symphony number nought at last! The piano score of Arnold Baxís Symphony in F of 1907 was completed by its composer but never orchestrated, and has long been one of the great 'might-have-beens' of the British symphonic repertoire, along with Elgarís Third Symphony and E J Moeranís Second.
Unlike Elgar and Moeran, Bax actually completed his symphony, and now Martin Yates has set it into full score, managing to catch the elusive, idiomatic sound of Baxís orchestra in a convincing way we never expected to hear. The glorious second movement in particular, on a similar scale to his many later tone poems, is revealed as a striking and poetic creation in which Bax finds his voice.
All lovers of English music will want to get to grips with this epic, romantic score.
World premiere recordings.
Recorded at RSNO Centre, Henry Wood Hall, Glasgow, 15-16 August 2013.
