New Russia State Symphony Orchestra / Alexander Walker

* World premiere recordings

During the remarkable and prolific period between his 72nd and 92nd birthdays, groups, such as Nos. 22-24, all written within a nine-month period between 1964 and 1965. They all share a concern for march-rhythms, changeable moods and developing variation. No. 22 is Brian’s shortest symphony and exemplifies his art in its most compressed, nocturnal form, whereas No. 23 offers a more extrovertly scored and expansive scale. No. 24 provides the triumphant rejoicing that ends the trilogy. Influenced by Tchaikovsky, the 1906 English Suite No. 1 nevertheless hints at Brian’s sonic experiments to come.

Havergal Brian is one of the twentieth century’s more remarkable composers and, specifically, symphonists. He has tenacious admirers; indeed there is a society devoted to his name. His most famous work is the Gothic Symphony [8557418-19] but Naxos has recorded a number of Brian works, including a number of the symphonies. They all have a keen interest for the many followers of British symphonies. The current disc gathers three works that represent his later symphonies very well.

Alexander Walker works regularly as a guest conductor with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the BBC Philharmonic, City of London Sinfonia, Russian State Symphony Orchestra, Russian Philharmonic, and the New Russia State Symphony Orchestra.
