Brian Symphonies New Russia State So Walker Naxos

Havergal BRIAN (1876–1972)
Symphonies Nos. 8, 21 and 26†


New Russia State Symphony Orchestra / Alexander Walker

†WORLD PREMIÈRE RECORDING

Each of the three symphonies on this recording represents a significant milestone in Havergal Brian’s long musical journey, and each demonstrates the breadth of his
symphonic approach. No. 8 was the first of Brian’s symphonies to be performed and is one of his most gripping and unpredictable, full of sonic invention. Behind the more apparently genial and expansive No. 21 lies profound emotional complexity, while No. 26 embodies elements of a divertimento though it retains disquieting outbursts. Gramophone wrote of the previous Brian recording by these forces (8573408): “The New Russia State Symphony Orchestra do the music proud.” This issue completes the commercial recording of all 32 of Brian’s symphonies.

Key Features:
• 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. They all have a keen interest for the many followers of British symphonies.
• This issue, the ninth Naxos album devoted to symphonies by Brian, completes the commercial recording of all 32 of his symphonies. Brian was 51 by the time he
completed his first, the immense Gothic Symphonic (8557418-19) and over 80 when he composed his late harvest of 21 symphonies.
• This is the world première recording of Symphony No. 26, which is the last of Brian’s 32 symphonies to have achieved a commercial recording.
