About

Havergal Brian’s first opera, The Tigers, was begun in the middle of World War I – he called it ‘a distraction from war horrors’ – and is essentially a satire on the shambolic unpreparedness of the British army in training on the home front. This CD features the only complete recording of the Symphonic Dances which Brian adapted from the operatic score and the only available recording of Fould’s Pasquinade Symphonique No.1.
